The View’s Nicolle Wallace Fires Back at Cheney’s ‘Race Card’ Comments

‘I don’t think President Obama has been strong on foreign policy — I think he’s done the sort of damage to the country, in the globe, that Jimmy Carter did, but I don’t think it has anything to do with race’

The View’s Nicolle Wallace Fires Back at Cheney’s ‘Race Card’ Comments (Mediaite)

When the subject of a new Dick Cheney Playboyinterview came up during Wednesday’s episode ofThe View, former George W. Bush Administration communications director Nicolle Wallace made no efforts to defend the comments made by her fellow Republican. Instead, she out-right rejected Cheney’s suggestion that President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder haveplayed the “race card.”

“I wish that Vice President Cheney, who I worked with for seven years and respect him a lot, I wish he hadn’t mixed the issue with race,” Wallace said. “Because I don’t think President Obama has been strong on foreign policy. I think he’s done the sort of damage to the country, in the globe, that Jimmy Carter did, but I don’t think it has anything to do with race.”
