I just heard this on Fox News..I had no idea he was on the transplant list. Here’s wishing for a quick and speedy recovery!!
Best wishes for future health.
a little old for a tansplant isn’t he?
under Obamacare this would not be allowed
Cheney Chick advisory.
Prayers for his recovery.
And you wonder why he got one? Thinking ahead.
Get well soon Mr. Vice President.
Hope Dick lives another twenty years driving Liberals batshit crazy
I would not be surprised to hear liberals jump on this, and say he got this transplant because of who he is, and how he took healthcare resources from someone poor and less powerful.
Wow! I just heard it too! I hope all goes well for him!
Godspeed, dear Darth Vader; man of steel. Speedy recovery. You’re in my prayers.
Oh yeah, libs will say it is the first heart he has.
Bless his heart (old and new one). A true American patriot and a man who should have been president at some time in history. Prayers for him and his family.
When I heard breaking news about Dick Cheney I feared the worst, I thought he had died, but then when I heard he had a successful heart transplant, I was so relieved. Thank God he is going to be OK.
He might have been if not for the ticker. He has had trouble for many years. A patriot for sure.
Good thing he had it done before the IPAB board cancelled it. Being a Republican might be grounds or exclusion in the future if Hussein has his way.
Prayers just said for Cheney. A new lease on life!!
I hope it is a full recovery. Bush (43) was a good man; Cheney would have been better as President however.
Prayers for him to pull through, I’ve admired that man for decades and wish the 2000 ticket could have been flipped.
...and doncha wish he was our POTUS now...or next? Many prayers up for him, gentle Lynn, and their kind, loving daughters.
First I’ve heard of this....prayers for him and his family.
Alittle known fact if I may...Dick has always had the heart of a liberal...he keeps it in a jar on his office desk!
I still believe this snapshot will go down as something of a prophetic moment in history, as Mr. Cheney looks upon the Great Liar with complete clarity.
How many hearts has he gone through?
“Couldn’t he just have taken a pain pill??”
< /B O off>
Be still my heart.. No, wait uhhhh!
Prayers for a speedy recovery.
Get well quick, Dick! The dogs want to have you take them pheasant hunting with Janet Napolitano.
I’m sure he’ll be fine,, he has ObamaCare.
and what it doesn’t cover, the Kochs and Halliburton will gladly pick up. ;-]
The man who should have been president, praying for a speedy recovery.
Wow! Prayers to Mr. VP for a speedy and a trouble-free recovery!
Cheney is one of the great men of our time. Godspeed to him & his family, and recover quickly, Mr. Cheney.
Godspeed to the Vice President.
Do you have one?
I was going to ask for someone to post ‘THAT PICTURE’!! I scroll down and there it is. Thanks!!
Prayers for him and his family...and the family of the donor
Yes, but some are more equal than others. The government insurance system.
Cheney set the standard for what a VP should be. That he will be around a few more years is a plus.
Prayers for a quick recovery.
Prayers up Mr. Vice President.
May God bless Dick Cheney.
God Bless Dick Cheney.
He’s a very lucky man.
Prayers the transplant takes.
Obamacare wouldn’t permit him this transplant at his age.
Reminds me of Ronald Reagan’s line as he was being put under for surgery after the Hinckley assassination attempt:
“I hope all of you are Republicans”.
Get well, Mr. Vice President.
This clears the way for “Cheney 2012”!!
Get well soon Mr. Vice President!
Your in my prayers Mr Vice President!
Wow. Prayers for Dick Cheney and family.
Thank you very much for posting that picture!
God be with our VP for many more years of giving the other side his worthy opinions!
Yeah, I can almost hear Bill Maher’s nasty diatribe.
Just a suggestion, start read the leftest blogs and comments and screen grab them...................I am sure some will be very colorful
Prayers for him to have a full and successful recovery. Prayers for his family at this time.
