Former Vice President Dick Cheney was interviewed on the Today Show this morning, and invariably he was asked about his ability to use technology.
"My three-year-old grandson was teaching me how to use an iPad the other day. To play games. “Angry Birds” or something like that." Cheney answered. Ding! The media bestows on you one point for digital ability!
Does Cheney still think that Obama is a one term President? Yes. "I think he embarked on a course of action, when he became president, that did not have as much support as he thought it did. . . Once he got in the business for example of health care reform expanding the size of government, expanding the deficit, those are all weakness as I look at Barack Obama and I think he'll be a one term president."
Cheney also noted that in spite of Obama's campaign rhetoric against the Bush administration, he as largely continued Bush-era policies regarding terror, especially making good use of the drone program.
I think he's-- in terms of a lot of the terrorism policies-- the early talk, for example, about prosecuting people in the CIA who've been carrying out our policies-- all of that's fallen by the wayside. 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. So I think he's learned from experience. And part of that experience was the Democrats having a terrible showing last election.
