Cheney Family Spokesperson: Former VP Up and Walking
Fox News ^ | 03/30/2012 | Mike Emanuel

Posted on 03/31/2012 1:40:29 PM PDT by Moonman62

A spokesperson for the family of former Vice President Dick Cheney says he is "doing great", and is up and walking less than a week after receiving a heart transplant. Kara Ahern says Mr. Cheney has been making a lot of phone calls to family and friends.

Mr. Cheney also received a great deal of mail from people all over the country during his time at Inova Fairfax Hospital.

Ahern tells Fox News, the former Vice President has been calling people he doesn't know personally, "perfect strangers", who have sent in cards and notes wishing him well. Ahern says, "most of them are shocked when he [Cheney] tells them who is calling."

I was a bit shocked at the liberal/radical reaction to Dick Cheney’s heart transplant.

But, their reaction simply proved the point made by Sarah Palin and others, that liberals DO want to see some type of “death panel” making decisions about who gets life saving surgery. They DO want to ration care, and they DO want a bureaucrat deciding if someone is worthy of certain procedures. Their reaction to Dick Cheney’s heart transplant proves that they have this mindset, that healthcare should be rationed out as liberals see fit.

And if he did he’d have my vote!

There isn’t another individual in this country with a resume more perfect than his for becoming president. It really is too sad that his heart condition prevented him from doing so.

Well, initially anyway.

As the system gets more bankrupt it becomes:

If you're white, conservative, and OR Christian-then you get a referral to the euthanasia dept.

I don’t know why this news has my eyes watering, after all, from everything I read for eight years, Cheney was such an evil B’strd.

They force you to get up and walk. I had an operation and asked for a urinal and was told get up and use the bathroom. The next day I asked if they could remove the morphine and the water tubes because i don’t like needles - they tossed me out of the hospital.

“God Bless Dick Cheney. One of the greatest Political leaders in my life.”

Amen to that. America was blessed to have this wise and decent man opt to give years to help our nation survive. In spite of being the target of some of the filthiest propaganda I have ever read, Dick Cheney wore out his heart, but he never gave in. A grateful nation prays for his recovery.

Dick Cheney for president...I know, I know, I am just dreaming.

Many folks voted for idiot Bush not because of the idiot he was/is it was because of his choice of Cheney as his VP should Bush had dropped dead. Cheney would have made an excellent president.

EXCELLENT!!!

And in the hope that some mystery FReeper may actually know our esteemed former Vice President personally, PLEASE ask him (if at all possible) to plan on attending the GOP convention in Tampa, where I will bet dollars to donuts that SOME patriot WILL offer his name to the convention floor as the nominee!!!

CHENEY-GINGRICH '12 !!!

Dick Cheney's survival and extended long and good life is further proof that God is a conservative and the libs are all followers of ghia.

His walking, talking and just plain enjoying a Spring day will make them insane with rage.

God Bless America.

I was really disappointed when VP Cheney cancelled his latest Canadian visit. I SO wanted to get the chance for him to autograph my copy of his book.
God bless Dick Cheney and his family.
