Dick Cheney Interview with Playboy Stirs Controversy

dick cheney

Former Vice-President Dick Cheney caused some controversy during an interview for Playboy when he lit into President Obama, calling him “the worst President in my lifetime.”

He made the comments in response to Obama’s claims that the “core al-Qaeda” had been “decimated” under his command.

Cheney argued that the threat has actually spread massively in the last several years, in no small part due to Obama’s poor leadership.

Cheney went on to call Obama’s tenure in office “a tragedy” that America is going to pay dearly for.

Here is an excerpt from Playboy:

President Obama argues that under his leadership, “core Al Qaeda” has been “decimated.”

We have had a massive spread in the number of Al Qaeda–type organizations. The RAND study that came out last summer said that between 2010 and 2013 there had been a 58 percent increase worldwide in the number of Al Qaeda–type organizations. We used to worry, at 9/11, just about Afghanistan; now it stretches from Mali and Nigeria in West Africa, across North Africa, through the Middle East, all around into Indonesia, where you’ll find potential sanctuaries and safe harbors for Salafi Islamists, the terrorists, the Al Qaeda types.

It’s a very dangerous situation. I think the threat is growing steadily, and I think our capacity to deal with it is rapidly diminishing. I look at Barack Obama and I see the worst president in my lifetime, without question—and that’s saying something. I used to have significant criticism of Jimmy Carter, but compared to Barack Obama and the damage he is doing to the nation—it’s a tragedy, a real tragedy, and we are going to pay a hell of a price just trying to dig out from under his presidency.

Before liberals go on script and decry Cheney as a racist, it’s important to remember that a good chunk of America agrees with his sentiments.

A poll this past summer indicated that President Obama led the way at 33%, as the one person Americans believed to be the worst President since World War II.

Do you support Cheney’s sentiments? Is Obama the worst President… maybe ever?
