Cheney: Obama’s Reelection Would Be ‘Unmitigated Disaster’

by Noah Glyn

In his first public appearance since undergoing heart-transplant surgery, former vice president Dick Cheney had this to say about the prospect of a second term for President Obama:

I can’t think of a time when I felt it was more important for us to defeat an incumbent president today with respect to Barack Obama. I think he has been an unmitigated disaster to the country. I think to be in a position where he gets four more years in the White House to continue the policies he has, both with respect to the economy, and tax policy, and defense and some other areas would be a huge, huge disappointment.
