Obama ‘Can Be Pushed Around’
Says Dick Cheney.
Dick Cheney weighed in on Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy, saying that Obama is “weak” and that’s why he’s failing to uphold U.S. interests. “I think you’ve got to look beyond just that most immediate crisis” in Ukraine, Cheney said. “Obviously, we’ve got to deal with that. But there has developed over the years of the Obama administration, I think, a sense on the part of others that we have a weak government.” If only that were truer in domestic policy. Cheney continued, “We saw, for example, at the mere request from [Vladimir] Putin, President Obama withdrew the plans for a missile defense program based in Poland and the Czech Republic. He’s demonstrated repeatedly, I think, that he, in fact, can be pushed around.” Therefore, Putin has “taken advantage of this opportunity when he thinks we have a weak president to try to restore some of the old Soviet Union.” Bingo.
