    Cheney: Obama has learned that Bush policies were right By Daniel Strauss - 01/17/11 05:18 PM ET President Obama has “learned from experience” that some of the Bush administration’s decisions on terrorism issues were necessary, according to former Vice President Dick Cheney. In his first interview since undergoing major heart surgery last July, Cheney said he thinks Obama has been forced to rethink some of his national security positions now that he sits in the Oval Office. "I think he's learned that what we did was far more appropriate than he ever gave us credit for while he was a...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney is rebounding from five weeks in the hospital this summer, and plans about 10 stops on the speaking circuit in coming months – along with some hunting trips as well, according to friends. Cheney spent much of the summer at Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute, a stay that was prolonged by a bout of pneumonia. He had a left ventricular assist device implanted, a pump that is used in dire cases, and that can be used as a bridge to a heart transplant. The former vice president hasn’t decided whether to seek a heart...

    Close to 10,000 people crowded into the Bakersfield Business Conference's main tent to see former Vice President Dick Cheney be "interviewed" by Lynne Cheney, his wife of 46 years. Collecting that many people all under one tent roof is a sight to see, and Mrs. Cheney commented on what a great crowd the conference had brought together. "It's almost enough to make you want to run for office again," the former vice president quipped. "Almost." Dick Cheney worked with four of the five Republican presidents following the Eisenhower administration. With that in mind, Mrs. Cheney asked, "So who's your favorite...

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney was released from a suburban Washington hospital on Monday following surgery last month to install a pump that helps his failing heart work. Cheney left Inova Fairfax Heart and Vascular Institute in Northern Virginia to continue his recovery at his home, according to a statement released by his office. Cheney, 69, has had five heart attacks since he was 37 and suffers from congestive heart failure. He disclosed in a statement on July 14 that he had undergone surgery the previous week after what he called "entering a new phase of the disease when I...

    For the first time, former President George W. Bush has said publicly that he approves of former Vice President Dick Cheney’s high-profile role in defending the past administration’s national security policies. “I’m glad Cheney is out there,” Bush said Friday morning at a reunion breakfast that was the inaugural event for the Bush-Cheney Alumni Association. The reception, held at a downtown Washington hotel, was closed to the press. Attendees supplied this account of the remarks. Cheney originally had been scheduled to appear with Bush but did not come because he is recovering from a heart scare. Bush visited his former...

    WASHINGTON — Former Vice President Dick Cheney is recovering from a "mild heart attack" — his latest bout in a long battle against heart disease. Cheney was feeling fine on Tuesday and likely to be sent home from a Washington hospital within a day or two, aides aid. He experienced chest pain on Monday, and lab results revealed evidence of the heart attack, spokesman Peter Long said. "The whole family has been working with heart disease for decades, and they are vigilant and attuned to treatment," said political consultant Mary Matalin, a friend and former counselor to Cheney. She added...

    Previewing the President's speech tonight, NBC's Matt Lauer invited on Karl Rove, on Tuesday's Today show, and pressed the former White House senior adviser if the reason Afghanistan still required the U.S.'s attention is because the previous administration "took its eye off the ball in Afghanistan," and "concentrated too heavily on Iraq." Rove hit back, accusing Lauer and Bush administration critics of "revisionism." And later, when Lauer questioned if there were enough "resources" to counter the Taliban resurgence in Afghanistan Rove fired back that any one in the Obama administration was in no position to criticize: "Well look, first of...

    If you want to witness a massacre on television, take at look at this debate on MSNBC’s Morning Joe between Joe Scarborough and Lawrence O’Donnell over Dick Cheney, Iraq, and weapons of mass destruction. Scarborough uses an avalanche of facts to bury O’Donnell’s contention that Dick Cheney lied about WMD and based the case for war on a “wild guess.” In addition to all the sources Scarborough cited and who claimed Saddam Hussein possessed WMD — including leading Democrats like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Kerry, John Edwards, and more — you could add the intelligence agencies of...

    THE first signs have emerged that former US vice-president Dick Cheney lost faith in his former boss George W.Bush for going "soft" after refusing to listen to his advice. Mr Cheney, who has always steadfastly supported the former US president, has reportedly told colleagues and political experts of his disappointment as Mr Bush's resolve weakened in response to souring public opinion during his second term. According to The Washington Post, the man often called the most influential vice-president in US history has made known his feelings during discussions about a memoir he is writing that publishers have been told is...

    In his first few months after leaving office, former vice president Richard B. Cheney threw himself into public combat against the "far left" agenda of the new commander in chief. More private reflections, as his memoir takes shape in slashing longhand on legal pads, have opened a second front against Cheney's White House partner of eight years, George W. Bush. Cheney's disappointment with the former president surfaced recently in one of the informal conversations he is holding to discuss the book with authors, diplomats, policy experts and past colleagues. By habit, he listens more than he talks, but Cheney broke...
  • Obama slams Bush administration for taking America ‘off course’

    WASHINGTON (CNN) — President Barack Obama said Thursday the Bush administration took America’s national security “off course” in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001 attack. After September 11, “faced with an uncertain threat, our government made a series of hasty decisions,” Obama said. “I believe that many of these decisions were motivated by a sincere desire to protect the American people. But I also believe that all too often our government made decisions based on fear rather than foresight. That all too often trimmed facts and evidence to fit ideological predispositions.”

    Thank you all very much, and Arthur, thank you for that introduction. It's good to be back at AEI, where we have many friends. Lynne is one of your longtime scholars, and I'm looking forward to spending more time here myself as a returning trustee. What happened was, they were looking for a new member of the board of trustees, and they asked me to head up the search committee. I first came to AEI after serving at the Pentagon, and departed only after a very interesting job offer came along. I had no expectation of returning to public life,...

    I admire former Vice President Dick Cheney. Why? Because he has a love for our nation that cannot be described. He also speaks from his heart and can communicate his message without the necessity of an electronic gadget. He doesn’t have to keep moving his head back and forth scanning a prepared text displayed on a screen or several screens within his reach and give the impression that he is speaking to those it appears he is looking at. Dick Cheney is no fraud and speaks not from scripts or prepared “here’s what you say when” pre-arranged and entered verbiage....

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney will appeal a CIA decision denying his request for the release of memos he's contended are crucial to proving the success of "enhanced interrogation techniques" of detainees. Cheney's office released a two-sentence statement reacting to the denial, "The Obama Administration has denied Vice President Cheney's request for the declassification of two documents that provide information about the effectiveness of the detainee program. Vice President Cheney is preparing his appeal to this denial."

    Former Vice President Dick Cheney on Sunday continued his verbal attack against President Obama, saying that the country is more vulnerable to a potential terrorist attack since the Obama administration took power. Mr. Cheney said that administration's dismantling of many of the policies and protections instituted by President George W. Bush after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks — including the planned closing of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp in Cuba and halting controversial prisoner interrogation techniques — have made the country more vulnerable to future attacks. "That's my belief," Mr. Cheney said on CBS' "Face the Nation." "I think...

    Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday his predecessor, Dick Cheney, is "dead wrong" when he says President Barack Obama's national security policies are making the United States less safe.

    Cheney says Obama endangers U.S. By: Mike Allen March 15, 2009 09:56 AM EST Asked Sunday on CNN if he thinks President Obama "has made Americans less safe," former Vice President Dick Cheney said: “I do." Looking slimmer and relaxed, Cheney told John King on “State of the Union” that Bush administration policies on detention and interrogation of suspected terrorists – some of which were immediately modified by Obama — “were absolutely essential” to preventing another 9/11-style attack. "I think that's a great success story. It was done legally. It was done in accordance with our constitutional practices and principles,"...
