From Hot Air:
Cheney’s harshest criticism, however, was for President Obama.
“I obviously am not a big fan of President Obama. I think he’s been one of our weakest presidents. I just fundamentally disagree with him philosophically. I’d be hard put to find any Democratic president that I’ve disagreed with more,” he said.
When asked if he thought Obama was “worse than Jimmy Carter,” Cheney replied, “Yes.”
Didn’t take long before we were shown that finding class in liberals is like finding polar bears in a rainforest:
Dick Cheney says Obama is "worse than Jimmy Carter." He sounds like a nasty, bitter old man who simply never made it to #1.

Way to change the subject, guys.
Unbelievably, a couple of Carter apologists even crawled out of the woodwork:
Cheney calls Obama "worse than Carter" leaving out that had Reagan not killed Carter's energy plan we'd be energy independent by now.

RT @cdashiell: Dick Cheney says Obama is worse than Jimmy Carter. What he didn't say is that Carter was a billion times better than Bush.

And a “where the hell did THAT come from?” swipe at Mitt Romney:
Mitt Romney's lust for war makes Dick Cheney look like Jimmy Carter.

Cheney’s got to be embarrassed about his statement, though. Even conservatives are taking him to task for it:
Still, Cheney has a point. Let’s face it. The only thing worse than President Obama is President Obama serving a second term.
