Skip to comments.Dick Cheney calls Obama the 'worst president of my lifetime'

In a new interview with Playboy, former Vice President Dick Cheney accused President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder of "playing the race card" and said that he could "go on for hours" about all of the ways Obama has "undone" the work of President George W. Bush.
Although the article claims that Cheney's "preoccupations revolve around the books in his study and the purchase of just the right gifts for his grandchildren," it sounds more like he's kind of obsessed with Obama. Calling him "the worst president in my lifetime," Cheney said his criticism of Obama and Holder has nothing to with race and is "merited because of performance or lack of performance, because of incompetence." He also shared that he was "disappointed" in the Obama administration's response to the situation in Ferguson, Missouri, and said that he's heard from foreign leaders, "especially in the Middle East," that they are "so terribly frustrated, angry, [and] frightened" over Obama's handling of the crisis in Syria. "Our friends no longer trust us, and our adversaries no longer fear us," he said.
Lest you think Cheney only talked about the president, he did take some time out to say the energy policy he helped craft while in office was an "enormous success" and he feels "very good" about what the CIA did after Sept. 11. "We bent over backward to adhere to the law, to not do something that was, quote, 'torture,' et cetera, et cetera.... I don't spend a lot of time worrying what the critics have to say about it."

Worst pResident EVAH!
Hey, he might live to see Biden as pres! /sarc
Try the worst so called president in the history of the United States.
“Lest you think Cheney only talked about the president...” WAIT! You’re the one who started out by saying Cheney was obsessed with Obama...then you chide your insipid readers for thinking precisely what you tried to plant in their brains!
What a load of tripe!
In other news, grass is green, the sky blue, and the sun sets in the West..
I slept so much better when W and Cheny were my daddies than odumbo
Put Dick Cheney in charge of the military and Isis, Isle, Muslim Brotherhood, Islamic State, and all the other names of terrorist organizations, would be destroyed.
Have you ever seen a copy of The Week? It’s about a dozen pages of Democrat talking points published by the old Democrat whore, the New York Times. Cheney has survived several heart attacks and heart surgeries just to spite the Left.
We’ve had Presidents who have let us slide into war, but never one that came into office actually wanting to start one. What 0bama and his team meant by “transformative” turned out to be very ugly indeed. Never before has the country had one come into office thinking that the Hippocratic “Do no harm” was diametrically opposed to his actual policy. Foreign policy will take decades to recover, race and other social relations, maybe never.
Jimmah Carter is sitting in Plaines, Georgia thinking, “I’m off the hook.”
“Dick Cheney calls Obama the ‘worst president of my lifetime”
Mine too Dick. He’s a dictator over the people of the United States for the Democrat Party. NOT a President of the people of the United States.
It’s all for the party, not the people.
Hmm, I might just have to buy that issue. For the article, of course!
If Dick Cheney was 225 years old, his statement would still be true....
I doubt very much the MSM will throw a fit over this. They wouldn’t want to draw attention to the very clear truth of what Dick Cheney has said, as too many people would nod their heads in agreement.
“Try the worst so called president in the history of the United States”
I think Cheney was trying to be polite, and held back a bit.
Why is Cheney giving an interview to this rag?
That’s terribly unfair to Obama. Give the man credit where credit is due.
Obama isn’t just the worst president in Cheney’s lifetime. He is the worst president of all time.
