On Sean Hannity’s Fox show Thursday night Cheney opined on how he thinks the incumbent is going to have a tough time next November.
“I think the economy is clearly going to be a major problem for him,” said Cheney.
Then Cheney took a shot at Mr. Obama’s experience, saying that, as vice president, he had traveled to Illinois to campaign for Obama’s opponent in Obama’s first Senate race. Obama won, and Cheney swore him in – that’s one of the duties of the vice president.
The next thing he knew, Obama was running for president, said Cheney on “Hannity.”
“He had not served very long in the US Senate ... he didn’t bring into office the kind of experience I would have hoped to have seen in a new president,” said Cheney.
Cheney also sounded as if he is still kind of mad at his old boss over his refusal to pardon top Cheney aide Lewis “Scooter” Libby.
Bush commuted Libby’s jail sentence on the obstruction of justice conviction but was reluctant to grant a full pardon.
Cheney told Mr. Hannity that he thought Libby a good man who was treated badly by the system.
“There was tension in the room” when Bush told him he would not grant the pardon, Cheney said.
