Personally I think they are reading way too much into this, but I would agree that the caption to the photo isn't in line with Whitehouse policy.

Link to the photo with caption.

I think they are officially recognizing little Samuel David. Period.

These aren’t good arguments at all. Is adoption also “playing house” because the parents are not biological? Doesn’t make sense.

What is so hypocritical of this Administration is its “double-speak.”

true, but other issues this WH and administration double-speak about are downright dangerous and subversive to our country and our way of life.

This shouldn’t be turned into a political statement.

I think they are reading into it to much as well. They act as though Cheney should have nothing to do with his daughter or grandson... not exactly Christian-like (before anybody points it out, yes, I know, Cheney has made it clear he has no problem with homosexuals marrying - I’m not arguing that one o way or the other, just that Cheney and his wife have acted appropriately in regards to their daughter/grandson).

Heather Poe is Mary Cheney's live-in lesbian lover. She may act like a parent, she may treat the baby as a parent, she may love this baby with all of her heart, but in this reality we all live in, Heather Poe is NOT the baby's real parent. She has NO biological connection to the child whatsoever. Some man, the baby's real Daddy, is the child's other REAL parent.

No wonder I'm confused. I was raised in a foster home by two people who later adopted me when I was around three and half years old. For as long as I can remember, I have referred to these two people as "mom," "dad," and "my parents." Thanks to the Christian News Wire, I now realize that my real parents are not the people who fed me, housed me, clothed me, and cared for me when I was sick -- because I do not have a biological connection to them -- but rather, my real parents are two strangers who I know nothing about other than they were so dysfunctional that social services removed me from them and placed me in foster care and eventually initiated proceeding to terminate their parental rights, which they did not bother to oppose.

Kicked in the teeth again by the Bush Administration.

I agree. They are reading way, way too much into this one. After all, what're they going to say? The only other option is to just not name one of the people in the picture. I feel bad for this child, as I think it's unfair to grow up without a father, and it's especially unfortunate when that happens to a child by the choice of his parent(s).

I have no qualms with the Cheneys welcoming this little angel into their family. My only question is, have they issued official pictures when their other 5 grandchildren were born?

Congratulations to Dick and Lynne Cheney on the grandbaby. He is theirs; they love him.

What are they supposed to do?

I agree. Dick Cheney will be a loving grandfaher and will continue to be a loving father. Disowning one’s children because they are gay is not an act of love. Being a good father, and in this case a grandfather, too, in spite of his daughter’s ‘preference’ is a very big act of fatherly love. I mean, come on, this baby has Dick Cheney as a grandfather!

Bush is morphing into more of a democrat before our eyes. What’s the surprise?

Reading this as sometype of endorsement is ridiculous.

This forum certainly has people who feel strongly about issues, but trying to read something like this into a family photo shows a Kerry-like spin on Lynn.
