Obama “in effect said that we had walked away from (America’s) ideals,” Cheney argued. “I think he did tremendous damage. I think he slandered the nation and I think he owes an apology to the American people.”

The Obama administration has “clearly … moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it is justified,” Cheney said.
