“It’s important not to personally attack the new president. I’ve never done that.” -Dick Cheney on Fox News
Meanwhile, in a galaxy far, far away, but in the very same interview, Cheney criticized Obama for shaking hands with Venezuelan president Hugo Chavez:
I think you have to be very careful. The world outside there — both our friends and our foes –will be quick to take advantage of a situation if they think they’re dealing with a weak president or one who’s not going to stand up and aggressively defend America’s interests.
MSNBC responds “Did Cheney just call Obama weak?”
