CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Former Vice President Dick Cheney said President Obama has been a "disaster" for the country and spoke for an hour and 15 minutes without seeming to tire in his first engagement since getting a new heart three weeks ago.

"He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country," Cheney said of President Barack Obama.

"I can't think of a time when I felt it was more important for us to defeat an incumbent president today with respect to Barack Obama. I think he has been an unmitigated disaster to the country," Cheney said at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.

"I think to be in a position where he gets four more years in the White House to continue the policies he has, both with respect to the economy, and tax policy, and defense and some other areas would be a huge, huge disappointment," the former Vice President said.

He said presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is going to do a "whale of a job." He said it's never been more important to defeat a sitting president and the Republican Party should unite behind Romney.

The crowd of more than 300 gave Cheney and his daughter, Liz Cheney, a long standing ovation.

Cheney's heart transplant in Virginia on March 24 initially canceled his trip to the convention but he got last-minute medical clearance to go.
