In an interview with radio host Hugh Hewitt, former Vice-President Dick Cheney came out swinging on our nation’s foreign policy under Barack Obama, alluding to the fact that the President is acting like a man who wants “to take America down.”
Cheney later added that Obama is “the worst president we’ve ever had.”
He would go on to proclaim that water is wet, and that the sun rises in the east. Okay, maybe not, but this is surely Captain Obvious material we’re discussing here.
Via the Weekly Standard:
Vice President Dick Cheney had harsh criticism for President Barack Obama in an interview last night with radio host Hugh Hewitt.
Hewitt asked the former vice president, “Is he naïve, Mr. Vice President? Or does he have a far-reaching vision that only he entertains of a realigned Middle East that somehow it all works out in the end?”
“I don’t know, Hugh. I vacillate between the various theories I’ve heard, but you know, if you had somebody as president who wanted to take America down, who wanted to fundamentally weaken our position in the world and reduce our capacity to influence events, turn our back on our allies and encourage our adversaries, it would look exactly like what Barack Obama’s doing. I think his actions are constituted in my mind those of the worst president we’ve ever had.”
Take a listen to Cheney’s comments…
Before the media goes out and blasts Cheney for being a crazy right-winger, it’s important to note that a majority of America agrees with him.
A Quinnipiac poll last summer demonstrated that Americans think Obama is the worst President they’ve seen in nearly 70 years.
What do our readers think – Is Obama the worst President we’ve ever had?
