Speaking to the recent nuclear negotiations with Iran, former Vice President Dick Cheney called Obama the worst commander-in-chief the U.S. has ever had.
In an interview with conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt, Cheney called Iran “one of the most radical” regimes in history and said that President Obama is “about to give them nuclear weapons.”
“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,” Cheney said in the interview. “I think his actions are constituted in my mind those of the worst president we’ve ever had.”
The former Vice President also expressed his views on Obama’s criticism of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker saying he would get rid of the Iran deal on his first day as President if he was elected. Cheney said that Obama's criticism was a “mark of weakness.”
“And it would be a foolish approach to take, and, you know, perhaps Mr. Walker, after he’s taken some time to bone up on foreign policy, will feel the same way,” Cheney said, adding that the comments were “almost like a paid commercial” for Walker.
