WASHINGTON (AP) -- The White House says former Vice President Dick Cheney is the second most popular member of the "Republican cabal," behind only talk-show host Rush Limbaugh.
White House spokesman Robert Gibbs on Monday brushed off Cheney's criticism of President Barack Obama's new administration. Cheney said Sunday on CNN that Obama's decisions are threatening the nation's safety.
Obama reversed many of his predecessor's executive orders, including how the country treats suspected terrorists.
Gibbs says Obama is keeping the nation safe and dealing with problems George W. Bush's administration did not.
Gibbs says his sarcasm shouldn't mask serious policy differences between Obama and the Bush-Cheney team.
