David Axelrod responded to Dick Cheney's recent criticism of President Obama Sunday on CNN's State of the Union. "[President Bush] has behaved like a statesman," Axelrod told John King.

Axelrod disagreed with Cheney's assertion that Obama's terrorism policies were failing. "I find it supremely ironic, on a day when we were meeting with NATO, to talk about the continued threat from al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan, where they're still plotting against us eight years -- or seven years later," he said. "I think the question for Mr. Cheney is, how could that be? How could this have gone so long? Why are they still in business?"
