CHEYENNE, Wyo. Former Vice President Dick Cheney said Saturday night that President Barack Obama has jeopardized U.S. national security by nominating substandard candidates for key cabinet posts and by degrading the U.S. military.
The performance now of Barack Obama as he staffs up the national security team for the second term is dismal, Cheney said in comments to about 300 members of the Wyoming Republican Party.
Cheney, a Wyoming native, said it was vital to the nations national security that good folks hold the positions of secretary of state, CIA director and secretary of defense.
Frankly, what he has appointed are second-rate people, he said.

It’s wonderful-and sad. His political career is over and there are no elected ones to carry the torch.
What he say is, of course, absolutely true.
To destroy a first rate country (or company) you need second rate people.
Everything is going according to plan.
In my business consulting, I suggest that a company's rewards programs need to do three things - Retain the best talent, drive the right performance and be affordable. Most companies do two. The best do all three. 0bama scores a perfect ZERO - the wrong people doing the wrong things and going bankrupt, all at the same time. A disaster hatrick, which convinces me that is his plan.
Kerry, Hagel, Brennan
I wouldn’t let any of the three of them guard my lunch.
You sum it up perfectly.
Obama isn’t interested in candidates who can actually do the job. He just wants people who share in and will effectively promote his ideology.
A second rate cabinet for a second rate president. It fits.
In my business consulting, I suggest that a company’s rewards programs need to do three things - Retain the best talent, drive the right performance and be affordable. Most companies do two. The best do all three. 0bama scores a perfect ZERO - the wrong people doing the wrong things and going bankrupt, all at the same time. A disaster hatrick, which convinces me that is his plan.
I’m sure you would rate O as the zero he is as regards delivery against plan..
Everything about Obama is substandard.He has no idea what state he’s in aside from confusion.
To be fair, I wouldn't trust Chris Christy either, although for different reasons.
The facts are there are NO good people on the left, but even the better ones of that bunch DO NOT CARE TO SERVE in an Obama regime.
That leaves him with little more than members of the Senate and THIRD RATE people to pick from ~ and he hasn't got a clue.
The man is stupid.
People who are on food stamps, pay little if any federal taxes, own no property, run no business's and really don't have a dog in the fight except to live large in freedom....they don't care about America...this is the Obama base and they elected this Marxist.
Yes, as an American he is substandard....but I doubt there is any confusion about what this Marxist is trying to do to America...he knows exactly what he is doing...his mindless base elected his color as they thought he was one of them and they are living well on other people's money/backs.
Not sure he knows exactly what he is doing.He repeats his mistakes (solor bail outs) three times.
True he is pushing for socialism and big gov but he’s confused in so many ways,he’s to the point of just doing stupid things.
Hah ... too funny
That Dick Cheney?
Personally, I'm Grateful that his "conservative" political career as a RINO is Dead...
Born in Sublette County, Wyoming, Barlow attended elementary school in a one-room schoolhouse. He was a student at the Fountain Valley School in Colorado. There Barlow met Bob Weir, who would later join the music group the Grateful Dead. Weir and Barlow maintained contact throughout the years; a frequent visitor to Timothy Leary's facility in Millbrook, New York, Barlow introduced the musical group to Leary in 1967...
...and maybe heartless progressive RINOs whose careers were spawned from psychedlic glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
So, is what he said that this news story is about wrong?
That’s quite a stretch. I hope you didn’t hurt yourself.
“Dick Cheney blasts President Obamas second-rate national security team”
“Second rate?” Nonsense.
Obama’s security team would have to climb a whole lotta rungs on the “rate latter” before they got anywhere near “second”...
