Dick Cheney Says Obama ‘Worst President In History’ In Playboy Interview


It’s a new year, which means it’s time for Dick Cheney to emerge from his thousand years rest in the pit of doom. Typically, the dark overlord and “fourth branch of government” chooses to appear in the right-wing echo chamber of Fox News, though mostly because they keep the room temperature cool enough to suit his reptilian needs. Oddly enough, Cheney was asked to bring his delusional revisionism and Baracknophobia to Playboy in an exclusive interview.

Well, there goes the oft-repeated male tautology of “I read playboy for the articles.” Apparently Super Villain Monthly was all booked, and apparently nothing compliments an assortment of 19-year-old airbrushed naked blondes like the scariest looking creature on the planet. 

During the interview, Cheney ripped into Obama on a wide array of issues, including the racially charged riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and foreign policy. But the fact that he had the gall to call President Obama “the worst president in his lifetime” takes the bakery. I mean, President Harrison, the putz who died after catching pneumonia for refusing to wear a coat during his presidential inauguration, still made a more effective and  better president than Bush.

I look at Barack Obama and I see the worst president of my lifetime, without question,” Cheney told journalist James Rosen. “I used to have significant criticism of Jimmy Carter, but compared to Barack Obama and the damage he is doing to the nation—it’s a tragedy. (Business Insider)

Since Cheney is a 300 year-old vampire who refuses to die, one can only surmise by “lifetime” he really meant the history of American democracy. Cheney also weighed in on Ferguson.

Well [pauses] what I see is disturbing. It’s always a tragedy when there is a death involved and so forth. But it seems to me it’s a clear-cut case that the officer did what he had to do to defend himself. . . And I’ve been disappointed, I guess, in the Obama administration’s response. . . I don’t think it is about race. I think it is about an individual who conducted himself in a manner that was almost guaranteed to provoke an officer trying to do his duty. (Business Insider)

Surely Michael Brown wasn’t a saint and indeed probably provoked a fight. But, to say that race wasn’t a factor when overwhelming evidence suggest racial tensions in the town of Ferguson, is only something that the man who invented WMD can imagine.
