LOL: Former Vice President Dick Cheney slammed President Obama as a weak president after the president delivered a foreign policy speech that was a rebuke of the Bush administration, The Hill reports.

Dick Cheney: “He is a very, very weak president. Maybe the weakest — certainly in my lifetime.” 

Cheney went on to say that during a recent trip to the Middle East, allies he had “dealt with all the way back to Desert Storm” expressed alarm at the president’s handling of foreign policy.

“They all are absolutely convinced that the American capacity to lead and influence in that part of the world has been dramatically reduced by this president,” Cheney said. “We’ve got a problem with weakness, and it’s centered right in the White House.”

In his speech, Obama said that those who “suggest that America is in decline, or has seen its global leadership slip away, are either misreading history or engaged in partisan politics.”

In an implicit rebuke of the foreign policy practiced in the Bush Administration, Obama said he would betray his duty to the troops if he dispatched them every time somewhere in the world “needed fixing, or because I was worried about critics who think military intervention is the only way for America to avoid looking weak.”

Oh, the irony of that comment….I’m just saying. Consider the source of this rebuke. Dick Cheney, really? A man who is a proven liar, not once, but many, many times.

This comes as applications for US unemployment benefits fell to 300,000 last week, near a seven-year low. Let me also add that Vladimir Putin blinked in the Ukraine standoff as well, but the right will never admit Obama achieved anything.
