I think Cheney's being kind here.
From the article:
Less than a month after receiving a heart transplant, former Vice President Dick Cheney minced no words in his assessment of President Barack Obama: Heâ€™s been an â€œunmitigated disaster.â€
â€œI canâ€™t think of a time when I felt it was more important for us to beat a president,â€ Cheney said of the November election. â€œ[Obama] has been an unmitigated disaster to the country.â€
