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.

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.

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.

I hope it is a full recovery. Bush (43) was a good man; Cheney would have been better as President however.

This is good news for the Cheneys.

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!

God bless Dick Cheney.

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.

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. ;-]

Cheney set the standard for what a VP should be. That he will be around a few more years is a plus.

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.
