Cheney: Obama Doesn't See America as Exceptional

Last week, former Vice President Dick Cheney spoke to host Steve Malzberg in a Newsmax TV interview about President Obama saying “If you go back 70 years … you’ll find presidents of both parties, from FDR and Harry Truman and Jack Kennedy to [Richard] Nixon and [Ronald] Reagan and the Bushes and forward … shared a basic fundamental proposition. [That is] that the U.S. did have a role to play in the world as an exceptional nation. Barack Obama clearly doesn’t believe that."

Cheney referenced Obama's work on the Iran nuclear deal by saying “The only winner out of that agreement are the Iranians, in terms of having a path ultimately to develop nuclear weapons. They get everything in this deal, and the Israelis and Saudis and the Jordanians, the Egyptians, the Emirates, all of our friends and allies in that part of the world, are appalled with what happened. But they also feel threatened by a nuclear-armed Iran.”

Cheney also criticized Obama for the rise of national security emergencies throughout the world by stating “It’s a dangerous time. We’ve seen rising threats from around the world — ISIS in the Middle East, [Russian President] Vladimir Putin on the march in Europe, the Chinese in the South China Sea. And as these threats grow, our capacity to deal with them is being diminished because they cut some of the defense budget."
