Former Vice President Dick Cheney is used to receiving criticism about the Presidential administration that he most recently worked in. The last few years of the George W. Bush administration were rocky, to say the least, and more than a few times VP Cheney likely heard voices calling President Bush the worst President ever. So we can be sure he doesn’t make the same criticism of President Obama lightly, but he does indeed believe that President Obama may literally be the worst President EVER.
Cheney was a guest on the Hugh Hewitt radio show (which has been a great show for years, but lately has been booming in importance), when Hewitt asked if Cheney believed Obama was naïve or making these terrible moves on purpose.
Hugh Hewitt: 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?
Dick Cheney: 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.
I am in agreement. If not the worst ever, he’s near the very top of the list.
