Jon Stewart on Tuesday wondered why television broadcasters have wasted their bandwidth on former Vice President Dick Cheney, who has made the rounds this week criticizing President Obama. During a recent interview with CBS News, Cheney said Obama entered office with the intention of diminishing the United States’ influence around the world and taking the nation “down a peg.”“You know, Cheney’s really confident in his opinions and analysis, I guess probably forgetting that he sucked at this,” Stewart said. “Like, he was a shitty vice president. Even if Obama wanted to take our standing in the world down a peg, he couldn’t, because the Bush-Cheney administration left him with no peg room.”
