Dick Cheney Accuses Obama of Playing The Race Card
“I think they’re playing the race card, in my view,” he told Playboy in a new interview published this month. “Certainly we haven’t given up — nor should we give up — the right to criticize an administration and public officials.”
Cheney said to suggest his criticism, or any criticism at all, of the two officials has anything to do with their race is “obviously not true.”
“My view of it is the criticism is merited because of performance — or lack of performance, because of incompetence. It hasn’t got anything to do with race,” he added.
“I don’t think it is about race. I think it is about an individual who conducted himself in a manner that was almost guaranteed to provoke an officer trying to do his duty,” he said.
This is the same man who is reluctant to say that Ferguson has anything to do with race so… it’s not seeming like these statements are coming from the most objective place. SMH.
