White House Says Cheney to Be in Wheelchair Tuesday
washingtonpost.com ^ | Jan 19, 2009 | n/a

Posted on 01/19/2009 8:13:54 PM PST by Jet Jaguar

Vice President Cheney will be in a wheelchair for tomorrow's inauguration ceremony, the White House said tonight, after he pulled a muscle in his back.

Cheney was moving into his new house in McLean from the Naval Observatory when he hurt his back moving boxes, White House Press Secretary Dana Perino said.

The vice president's doctor found no significant damage from the injury, Perino said. Nevertheless, he advised Cheney to spend the next couple of days in a wheelchair.

Won’t it be harder to impose martial law from a wheelchair?

Not really, and it does work better for the hand-clasping chuckling scene.

Excellent.....

Why was he moving boxes? It's not like he's poor and can't afford to hire somebody to do it, especially with his heart condition.

He was moving boxes himself because he’s not a wussy Liberal.

He’s a great man. I expect he was carrying boxes alongside the movers.

I love Dick Cheney. I pray he recovers quickly.

Dear VP,

All that tension in your back should be gone soon. You’ve handled the load of the whole world on your shoulders for what must seem like an eternity and, we thank you for your sacrifices.

It’s time now, for a four yearlong Obamaspasm.

Get well soon.

Image is EVERYTHING.

Watch CNN play this to the hilt. They will probably even get a cameraman down on the carpet to film upward to emphisize the spokes on that wheelchair, like they use to do to George Wallace and would never have done to Franklin Roosevelt.

And, one more prediction for tomorrow.

When President Bush comes down those velveted steps and he is announced, there will be loud, quite audible booing and hissing from the crowd at the Capitol. Maybe not in the VIP section, but in the other parts, and CNN will dutifully pick it up with mikes and play it to the hilt, rounding off his eight years. It is a prediction.

This is an act of genius — just as the Obamanation is busy trying to steal Lincoln from the Republican Party, VP Cheney turns the tables by stealing FDR from the Democrat Party!!!

[just kidding, wishing you well Mr. Vice-President Cheney, I like saying that title for you for 12 more hours or however long we have before the gaseous bimbo Joe Biden takes the title for I hope only 4 years or less...... maybe Biden will do a Spiro Agnew and have to resign over something]

God, I never even thought about that. Millions in Washington DC, boooing the President that protected them for 8 years.

You know what is worse...I sincerely hope they have provided President Bush with enough protection. With all the 0bama focus...and some real leftist crazies running around DC, I pray President Bush hasn’t neglected his own security.

especially with his heart condition.

OMG, that was my first thought. Why in the H was he moving boxes?

They will boo him later this morning, mark my word.

Right about the time he is announced and comes down the carpet. I know that crowd, seeing them live on CNN right now as I type. Not that I am a fan of Bush, but even booing him in my book would be very low brow.

ROTFL!

Ya know, a lot of kook theories crashed and burned this day along those lines.

Not that the kooks will ever acknowledge it.
