Cheney: Obama Getting Tougher On Terrorists, But Still A One-Term President

January 20, 2011 by  

Cheney: Obama getting tougher on terrorists, but still a one-term presidentFormer Vice President Dick Cheney recently stated that President Barack Obama has appropriately toughened his stance on counterterrorism policies, but said that Obama's overall performance will prevent him from being re-elected in 2012.

In an interview with NBC News, which is scheduled to air on Jan. 18, Cheney said that Obama "has learned" about the value of strict anti-terrorism measures, such as Predator drone strikes and the Guantanamo Bay detainee camp. Although the commander-in-chief has pledged to shut down the facility, Cheney said that Obama has discovered the benefits of George W. Bush-era counterterrorism strategies.

"I think he's learned that what we did was far more appropriate than he ever gave us credit for while he was a candidate," Cheney told the news provider. "So I think he's learned from experience. And part of that experience was the Democrats having a terrible showing last election."

However, Cheney said that he still believes Obama is a one-term president. The former VP, who underwent heart surgery last July, said that the President's approach to expanding the size of the Federal government while increasing the national deficit has curtailed job creation. Cheney added that Obama has shown little confidence in the private sector by granting more power and authority to the government.
