Former Vice President Dick Cheney just can't catch a break. First, a poll comes out showing that a large majority of Americans disagree with his contention that President Obama's policies have put the country at greater risk of a terror attack. And now, a rising star in his own party has come out to publicly castigate him.

“I don't think we should question President Obama's patriotism or his intentions,” Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Thursday. "I think Democrat or Republican, we should all agree that our current president, our former president would obviously want to do everything they could to keep us safe. Let's give the new administration a chance. Let's not question their intentions. Let's have a real debate on their policies."
