In a Playboy Magazine interview Dick Cheney accused Obama of ‘playing the race card’. He also accused him on a wide variety of other issues including Foreign Policy but Cheney didn’t go nearly far enough. He should have included Obama’s failures in domestic policies, his massive increases in the Debt and his worsening on purpose the relations between black people and white people as well as his worsening relations with Europe including his inability to confront Putin over Ukraine. This is the worst President, the most reckless and the most feckless.

Quoting from the article Cheney said: “I look at Barack Obama and I see the worst president of my lifetime, without question,” Cheney told journalist James Rosen. “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.”

Business Insider collected some of Cheney’s other criticisms below.

The ‘race card’:

Cheney said Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, who are both the first black officials in their respective offices, played “the race card” by suggesting their ethnicity has factored into some of the attacks against them:

I think they’re playing the race card, in my view. Certainly we haven’t given up—nor should we give up—the right to criticize an administration and public officials. To say that we criticize, or that I criticize, Barack Obama or Eric Holder because of race, I just think it’s obviously not true. My view of it is the criticism is merited because of performance—or lack of performance, because of incompetence. It hasn’t got anything to do with race.


Cheney said he was surprised there was so much controversy over the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teen shot to death by police officer Darren Wilson in August of last year. Intense and sometimes violent protests erupted in November when Wilson was not indicted. Cheney panned Obama for not speaking out in the officer’s defense:

Well [pauses] what I see is disturbing. It’s always a tragedy when there is a death involved and so forth. But it seems to me it’s a clear-cut case that the officer did what he had to do to defend himself. …. And I’ve been disappointed, I guess, in the Obama administration’s response. … I don’t think it is about race. I think it is about an individual who conducted himself in a manner that was almost guaranteed to provoke an officer trying to do his duty.

The Bush Legacy:

Cheney said he could go on “for hours” about all the ways Obama undermined Bush’s accomplishments. Citing Obama’s alleged foreign-policy mistakes, Cheney said the president “absolutely” rolled back Bush’s record, either intentionally or inadvertently:

“Where do you start? I think with respect to the situation in Iraq, his precipitous withdrawal and refusal to leave any stay-behind forces, to negotiate a Status of Forces Agreement with the Iraqis, was a huge mistake; we are paying a price for it now. He’s having to go back in now, and the guy who campaigned on the basis of bring the boys home and get out of Iraq is now redeploying forces to Iraq. I think his apology tour, when he went to Cairo in the summer of 2009 and said the U.S. overreacted to the events of 9/11, was a huge mistake. I don’t think he ever bought into the notion that we’re at war, in terms of a war on terrorism; I think he always wanted to treat it as a law-enforcement problem. I think he’s done enormous damage to the military. I think what’s happened to the military in terms of morale, in terms of financing, budget and so forth is just devastating. The way Obama is functioning now, he’s crippling the capacity of future presidents to deal with future crises.”

Clearly President Obama is not acting in the best interests of America, Europe or the nations and cultures under attack by ISIS.

A new poll from Qunnipiac University reported: President Barack Obama is the worst president since World War II, 33 percent of American voters say in a Quinnipiac University National Poll released today.
