Dick Cheney: Obama Is The Worst President Of My Lifetime

Former vice president Dick Cheney wasn't one to mince words when asked how he feels about President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder.

In an interview with Playboy magazine, Cheney talked about their responses to criticism by saying, “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.”

This may be in response to the fact that Holder stated in a recent Politico interview that he felt part of his struggles with the Republican-controlled Congress was driven by race. Holder said, “There have been times when I thought that’s at least a piece of it. I think that the primary motivator has probably been political in nature … [but] you can’t let it deflect you from … your eyes on the prize.”

In 2009 Obama said, “Are there people out there who don’t like me because of race? I’m sure there are. That’s not the overriding issue here.”

Nonetheless, Cheney stated, “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.” In addition, Cheney said that Obama was "the worst president in his lifetime" and that America would "pay a hell of a price just trying to dig out from under his presidency."
