Dick Cheney, who clearly is no fan of President Barack Obama, went on CNN’s “The Lead with Jake Tapper” and unloaded on the Commander-in-Chief, saying Obama is to blame for the current unrest in Iraq.
“Obama’s failure to provide for a stay-behind force is what created the havoc we see in Iraq today,” Cheney said. “When we left Iraq was a relatively stable place. We defeated al Qaeda, we had a coalition government in place.”
When asked whether decisions made by the Bush administration caused the problems in Iraq now, Cheney shifted the blame to Obama and Iraqi leader Nouri al-Maliki.
“I think it’s primarily Maliki, and Obama,” Cheney said. “That’s what I believe, and that’s what the history books will show.”
The former vice president didn’t back calls made for impeachment, he did once again say Obama “the worst president of my lifetime.”
A recent poll showed Americans labeled Obama as the worst president in nearly 70 years.
He also went a step further, saying and that Jimmy Carter, who is not a fan of either, “might have been a better President.”
