Dick Cheney: ‘Frankly, I Don’t Know’ What Makes Obama Tick
Former Vice President Dick Cheney ridiculed Barack Obama’s strategy in Iraq on The CATS Roundtable Monday. Cheney also admitted he really doesn’t understand what makes Obama tick.
Former Vice President Dick Cheney (R) said on Sunday that he has not figured out what motivates President Obama. “I’ve tried for a long time, John, to understand what makes him tick, and frankly, I don’t know,” Cheney told host John Catsimatidis on AM 970’s “The Cats Roundtable” in New York. Cheney said he was particularly mystified by Obama’s counterterrorism strategy in the Middle East.
The former vice president cited U.S.-led coalition airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) there as one example of what he called confusing logic. “I don’t think he really wants to be there,” Cheney said. “Obama has placed pretty severe limits on what our air guys can do,” he said. “It’s half a loaf, it’s pin-pricks. It’s not a very effective military operation at this point.”
Start here, Dick.
