Liz Cheney: I'd Like Nothing More Than to See Obama Demonstrate Leadership

Liz Cheney says she'd like to see President Barack Obama's flagging poll numbers turn around because it would mean he is finally exercising leadership.

Appearing on "Fox News Sunday,"  the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney said that when Obama took office Iraq was stable, but the complete pullout of American troops from that country has given rise to the terrorist group ISIS.

"I think people are very worried about it, and they're worried about what's happening in Afghanistan, and the fact he says he's essentially going to go down the same path there," Cheney said.

The Obama administration has been pushing for a change of leadership in Iraq as Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki faces re-election. But Cheney said the bigger problem at the moment is ISIS.

The United States already should be doing airstrikes against the group that has taken over cities in northern Iraq, she said.

Obama, suffering the worst approval numbers in his presidency and last week ranked the worst president since World War II, could turn those numbers around if he would move in a direction to keep America safe, Cheney said.

"But I'm not optimistic."
