Cheney: Obama ‘Does Not Hold the View that America Is the Exceptional Nation’

On Tuesday’s “On the Record” on the Fox News Channel, former Vice President Dick Cheney took aim at President Barack Obama by declaring that he didn’t recognize American exceptional and that his belief broke ranks with former Democratic presidents.

“He does not hold the view that America is the exceptional nation,” Cheney said. “I don’t think FDR, Harry Truman or Jack Kennedy or would recognize the foreign policy of a man like Barack Obama.”

Cheney also took aim at the president for pushing the controversial Iran deal, which he argued would put them on track to fulfill their nuclear ambitions.

“He is setting up a situation in which Iran will have a path to nuclear weapons,” he added. “They’re going to get over $100 billion. They’re lifting the embargo on ballistic trade and on conventional weapons.”
