Skip to comments.Dick Cheney calls Obama the 'worst president of my lifetime'
Posted on 03/18/2015 10:28:14 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
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."

Dubya trying hard to laugh, zero doing the say-what? Double take, and Dead Eye Dick "You heard me"
That expression of Cheney’s is worth a million words.
I really hope that Cheney is willing and able to serve in some capacity in President Cruz’s administration. If not in a cabinet position then maybe as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. or some other foreign policy position.
I wish I could have voted for Cheney/Bush instead of Bush/Cheney.
‘worst president of my lifetime
I dont think that Obama is trying to be a good president.
It is hard to tell if Dubya was trying not to laugh or trying not to barf.
Cheney clearly was thinking, “Good Lord, how will our nation survive this idiot?”
Worse President forever!!!
Congratulations, Mr. Chaney! Your position in the Guiness Book of World Records as the oldest human being is assured. 225 years old - Wow!
His boss, Bush Jr, is probably the 4th worst ever. You can argue for Bush Sr, Wilson, and FDR but Jr is definitely in the bottom 10. I think it’s necessary to point that out, so we’ll quit making the same mistakes. When we vote for the lesser of two evils, we get more evil every cycle.
That expression of Cheneys is worth a million words.
thought transfer...”You worthless turd”
Get in line Dick——I’ve been saying that for years-—
Oops! Chaney => Cheney
Make that “anybody’s lifetime since the country started”.
But then again, for a subg IQ, loathsome, lying, ill-educated POS with no morals, Dorkbama has not really been that bad.
I was trying to give a liberal friend some perspective about the way I feel about obama’s competence and, other than saying I truly believe I could be a better president than obama, I came up with this:
Imagine, if you will, that on a scale of 1-100, all of our presidents other than Obama rate between a 40 and 90. I would put Obama at 5, only then because he doesn’t drool when he speaks. I honestly would want to put him at a negative number but that’s like rating a woman an 11 on a scale of 1-10. It’s not how it works.
The 5 makes the point.
That picture always cracked me up. I can see the lack of respect in his eyes.
Agreed. Cheney is WRONG, the current occupant of the White House lives to create positive harm to our country. No person holding that office has ever wished harm on our country.
Lincoln was the worst President by far. All the other bad ones don’t come close.
You’re stating the obvious, Mr. Cheney.
You could have stopped him Dickey if you had been more forthright in 2008.
GW Bush is 4th worst ever... really? I’d like to see your bottom 5 to see how well you’ve thought about this.
Thank you both for your kind affirmation!
Chaney is really being too kind with his assessment.
I don’t believe it is a matter of competence or even personality.
I truly believe in my heart that the “Lyin’ King” is on a mission to destroy this country.
