WASHINGTON (AP) - Don’t blame the Bush administration for all the country’s economic problems.

That’s the message from former Vice President Dick Cheney.

President Barack Obama constantly talks about the enormous economic troubles that he inherited when he took office in January. Cheney agrees that Obama did indeed came into power amid very difficult economic circumstances.

But Cheney says he doesn’t think the Bush administration can be blamed for creating the economic woes. Cheney says it’s a global financial problem. He says the idea that fault can assigned to the previous administration is “interesting rhetoric” but he doesn’t think people care about that.

Cheney spoke on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
