Former Vice President Dick Cheney and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, “didn’t make one f---ing decision” in the White House during former President George W. Bush’s tenure, Bush said according to a new book, The Hill reports.

"The fact that there was any doubt in anyone's mind about who the president was, blows my mind," Bush added.

"George W. Bush took exception to those who believed that Dick Cheney, in particular, was calling the shots in the White House," said author Mark K. Updegrove, who wrote, "The Last Republicans: Inside the Extraordinary Relationship Between George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush," set to be released Nov. 14.

"That Dick Cheney was this Machiavellian puppet master of George W. Bush. Anyone who knows George W. Bush knows that he has this reflexive ease in decision-making," he added.

Some critics of the Bush-Cheney administration said Cheney controlled the weak-minded president. The aggressive response to the Sept. 11 attacks, the deterioration of Iraq and the failure to find weapons of mass destruction added to that image.

"Those around him saw that in the White House, so it's understandable that George W. Bush would have a problem with those, including his mother at a certain point, who believed that Dick Cheney had too much power," said Updegrove.
