Chapter . Crazy Cheney
Former Vice President Dick Cheney officially left office in January, 2009 but he did not leave quietly. Cheney was quick to criticize the Obama Administration’s national security plan, and emphasized the danger of terrorism to the American public. His most controversial post-Veep statement defended his statement on torture, or rather “enhanced interrogation methods” used as part of a “comprehensive strategy.” Cheney could have taken a cue from his 2009 disapproval rating of 63%, which was lower than anytime during his Vice Presidency, and removed himself from the political spotlight, but lucky enough for cartoonists, he stuck around at least a little bit longer.
