Former Vice President Dick Cheney gave a shout out to Edward Klein’s book on Barack Obama in discussing the president’s failures during an appearance on Fox News’ Sean Hannity program Monday.

Cheney has said that he had expected Obama to run a typical, liberal Democratic administration but added, “That’s not what it’s been.

“It's way over there to the left,” he said. “One of the things that's been most enlightening for me is to read this new book that's out that is — deals with this whole question of competence, and written by Ed Klein, used to be with The New York Times. It's called ‘The Amateur.’ And it goes into great detail in a whole number of different areas in terms of his philosophy, and why he believes what he did, and how he got there, and how he's managed or failed to manage in the White House.

“And I think what's happened, at least my own conviction is, here's a man who doesn't believe in a lot of these things that I think most Americans do believe in, in terms of a strong international role for the United States of America.”

Cheney cited current developments in the Middle East as an example of the United States heading “for the exits” instead of leading.

“I think with respect to the economy, it's the whole thing was encaptured in that statement the other day to small business, you know, if you've got a small business, you didn't build it, somebody else did,” he added. “I've got friends that -- you know, that's been their success story of their lives. It's one of the great success stories of America that we can do that sort of thing in the United States, and Barack Obama doesn't appreciate it or understand it or have any sympathy whatsoever. He thinks everything that happens that's good in the country comes from the government. And he's just dead wrong.”
