My prayers and best wishes to the man who should have been President, I don't suppose he would be ready to be drafted at the GOP convention coming up in Tampa, would he?

I KNOW we would at least have a fighting chance with a ticket of Cheney & Gingrich, how 'bout that?

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”.


And the little known response from the chief surgeon (who happened to be a Democrat) was "we are today, Mr. President."

Can anyone imagine how the sterling years of the Reagan Administration could have been improved had Dick Cheney been working for the Gipper in the capacity of VP?

(I think I just got a tingle, lol)

Yeah, I can almost hear Bill Maher’s nasty diatribe.

Yeah, I can almost hear Cheney saying - 'Be thankful, it could have been your heart I now have'.

Like many others here, I had no idea he was awaiting a transplant. God Bless You, Mr. Vice President.

It will be interesting to see if anyone on the left offers any kind of wishes for a full recovery (I won't hold me breath.) Most likely, they'll spin this situation as an argument in favor of Obamacare.

Great great news! My husband received a heart transplant 20 months ago. We always felt a comraderie with the Cheney family, because their heart issues mirrored each other. We pray for a full and complete recovery. The six months after transplant is “interesting” but after that it is nothing but net! Prayers to the donor family.

if only Cheney had run in 2008.. we might have avoided the desaster which is Obama, and Mittens would be off doing what he loves bankrupting companies and firing people.

They can’t spin it in favor of Obamacare because in reality if Obamacare were in effect right now Cheney would already be dead. They would never have given a man of his age a new heart. This is why in Obamacare they have “Death Panels” to prevent the elderly from being able to get the treatment they need to live longer

Even if he was near death I think Cheney would have rejected Maher’s evil heart.

"I had no idea he was on the transplant list."

The last time I saw him being interviewed he said the next step was a transplant and he had to make a decision.
