Dick Cheney: Obama Is the ‘Weakest President in My Lifetime’

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Wednesday evening, former Vice President Dick Cheney said he believes President Barack Obama is the weakest president he has ever seen. Surprise!

“He is a very, very weak president, maybe the weakest, certainly in my lifetime,” he said, adding that America’s capacity for world leadership and influence has been diminished by this president.

“We’ve got a problem with weakness, it’s centered right in the White House,” he said. “[I]t’s as though [Obama] wasn’t even around when 9/11 happened,” Cheney remarked on Obama’s decision to remove troops from Afghanistan by 2016.

The ex-VP declared that decision imprudent and explained his thoughts on why the War on Terror must continue on that front: “The reason we went into Afghanistan is because 19 guys armed with airline tickets and box cutters who had trained in Afghanistan, were supported out of Afghanistan by al Qaeda and Osama bin Laden, came over here and killed 3,000 Americans on 9/11.”
