Former vice president Dick Cheney, a #1 New York Times
bestselling author, and his daughter Liz Cheney, former
deputy assistant secretary of state, explain the unique and
indispensable nature of American power, reveal the damage
done by President Obama’s abandonment of this principle, and
show how America can and must lead again.
War II, American power and leadership have been an unmatched
force for the defense of freedom around the globe. For 70
years, presidents both Republican and Democratic have shared
a dedication to maintaining American power and leadership.
President Obama has abandoned this bipartisan tradition,
choosing instead to “lead from behind” as he abandons
America’s allies, appeases our enemies, and apologizes for
this great nation.
When the former vice president
spoke out on the topic last year, the Wall Street
Journal declared, “Dick Cheney is still right,” and the
Washington Post lauded his comments, adding that
“unless we have a president who understands that proactive,
early action and a robust military force are essential to
national security, we will forever be racing to catch up to
Now the former vice president and his
daughter, former deputy assistant secretary of state Liz
Cheney, team up to explain how President Obama has
drastically broken with the bipartisan foreign policy
consensus that enabled America to prevail in World War II,
to win the Cold War, and to triumph in the first decade of
the War on Terror. The Cheneys reveal the damage done by
President Obama’s policies and demonstrate how his
unwillingness to defend and protect American power has
weakened the nation and diminished the ability of future
presidents to defend us.
Finally, the Cheneys do
what no one before them has done: chart a path forward to
restoring American power and strength, explaining what must
be done to reverse course, to fight and win the war on
terror, to rebuild our military and reassure our allies that
they can once again rely on American leadership. A critical,
frank, and much-needed touchstone, Exceptional should
stand as a guiding principle for the potential presidential
candidates in 2016—and for policymakers today and beyond.
