Three Weeks After Heart Transplant, Dick Cheney Takes Stage – Bashes Obama

Well, bless his heart.
Dick Cheney joined daughter Liz Cheney yesterday at the GOP convention in Wyoming three weeks after his heart transplant.

Cheney blasted Barack Obama as an unmitigated disaster for the country.
FOX reported, via Weasel Zippers:

Dick Cheney, just weeks after undergoing heart transplant surgery, plunged back into the political theater Saturday — praising presumptive nominee Mitt Romney while slamming President Obama as an “unmitigated disaster.”

The tough words came during an hour-and-15-minute talk at the Wyoming Republican Party state convention in Cheyenne on Saturday.

He sat in a plush chair throughout the long chat with daughter Liz Cheney and looked decidedly healthier than recent appearances where he has been gaunt and used a cane.

After Rick Santorum dropped out of the race this past week, Cheney in his address urged the party to pull together behind Romney. He said the former Massachusetts governor would do a “whale of a job.”

His opinion of the sitting president was less flattering.

“He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country,” Cheney said of Obama.

Cheney’s heart transplant in Virginia on March 24 initially canceled his trip to the state party convention but he got last-minute medical clearance to go.

    Screw Chuck Norris. When I grow up I wanna be as tough as Dick Cheney.

    Would a 71 yr. old man even be considered for a heart transplant under ObamaCare? Of course not!!! AS a 7 yr survivor of experimental chemo treatment, I will vote for Mitt Romney!

  • Tired Okie

    I have always liked and admired this man. He is in my opinion a “man’s man” much to the dismay of the left who want men to be effeminate shells of manhood. “No Fear”, the hate and slander seem to just bounce off him… My father in law was much like him fought a bad heart until he was 79 and tough as nails.

Drug companies from the IRS will pay huge usage fees and this will be charged by to the consumer–drug prescriptions inc vitamins will 4x!

    wish Cheney was President

    First, it is amazing, organ donors help so many and thanks to the work of the doctors and I pray for many years ahead for former VP Cheney and his entire family. I really like Liz Cheney, she is a very intelligent woman, she learned from one of the best.

    “He has been an unmitigated disaster to the country,” Cheney of Obama.

    Wow, I too, what a thought, when we see the DISMAL failure of this Socialist there now.

    What a difference these past 3 years have made. It would not have been believed if we hadn’t seen this for ourselves. HORRIBLE PRESIDENT, IN COMPARISON there isn’t any, Obama has been the Worst of all.

  • Ernie Kaputnik

    I agree with Post #1: “Screw Chuck Norris. When I grow up I wanna be as tough as Dick Cheney.” (No offense intended, Chuck Norris.)

    Dick Cheney possesses the character and cojones that we need in a president, unlike the Girlie-Man in Chief and his grifting wife, Moochelle. The nation expected to get a “First Couple” that represents the best of America, but instead we got a couple of turds.

    (FYI…You can’t pick up a turd by the clean end. You’re going to get filthy doing it. And that is exactly what those two grifters have done to the entire nation – made us filthy. Remember that before you pull the lever in November.)

    God bless him!!

    OT, i cannot believe the outright LIES that
    have just been aired via Face The Nation..

    which reminded me of the following article:

    to Trayvon’s Parents:
    ‘Get Off the Stage’ and Let Us Politicize His Death

    [Remember when Trayvon Martin’s Mother told the Today Show, she knew
    the shooting was an accident that got out of hand, and that Zimmerman
    couldn’t turn back the clock.

    We knew that would set off a fire-storm, and here we go. This is a wake
    up call America, obama is dividing this Nation, he is pitting us against one

    A well-known, mainstream media-vetted college professor named Dr. Boyce
    Watkins states that it’s time for Trayvon Martin’s parents to “step to the
    side,” out of an apparent fear that “being honest” could negatively affect
    the race-baiting political agenda that Obama allies like Al Sharpton have
    carefully crafted.

    Dr. Watkin’s stark admonishment, “Get her off the stage right now,“ came
    in a recent blog post that shows the goal of the politicization of the Martin
    shooting is not truth or justice.]

    According to the latest Rasmussen Report’s latest poll, 49% of American voters trust Mitt Romney over Barack Obama on the economy; while only 39% trust the President more. The Daily Kos recently reminded its socialist readers that Democrats do not have the same overwhelming advantages in this election cycle: “2008 all the GOP Presidential Primary Candidates were under the shadow of George Bush who was polling at around 30%. The GOP candidates were running on keeping the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq going”.
    With the primaries out of the way, President Obama will now face the prospects of trying to defend his own legacy. Last time around it was Obama who was battle tested from a bruising primary campaign against Hillary Clinton, when he faced a grizzled war hero, who was 25 years his senior and admitted to being not very knowledgeable about the economy. This time Obama faces a slim and trim executive, closer to his age and with a great entrepreneurial track record. Perhaps President Obama’s campaign dilemma is summed up by those road signs in Texas with the smiling and waving George W. Bush: “Do you miss me yet?”

    Blast to the past: Obama will cut deficit in HALF!! 😆

  • Dittogirl

    I always liked Cheney more than President Bush. When the lefties were screaming to impeach and remove Bush, I dared them to do it! Bring it on, so we can have Cheney for President!

    They called me all kinds of names, swore at me, and shut up. But I really did want them to put their money where their big fat mouth was..

    Women like men that act like men..we’re sick of metrosexuals, girly men, and sissies. Cheney is all man.

  • Dittogirl

    I was just reminded by your post about when Bush was leaving office and all the lefties were loudly singing na na na na hey hey hey goodbye…

    Its time to get even.

    Congressional Record January 10, 1963

    On January 10, 1963, Florida US Representative Albert Sydney Herlong, Jr gave a speech outlining what he believed to be the 45 methods communists were using to take over America. Ponder the staggering number of these goals already achieved, much to our mortal damage.

    11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind.

    15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

    16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

    17. Control schools. Use them to transmit socialist & Marxist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Infiltrate teachers’ associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

    20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

    21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

    22. Discredit American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression.

    23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. Promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art.

    24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them “censorship” and a violation of free speech and free press.

    25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

    26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as “normal, natural, healthy.”

    WE will not recognize America if Obama is re-elected. We see things that our just making us sick. Obama is not a positive nor uplifting person. The only time he laughs is when he is making fun of us. Haven’t you noticed, I have.

    This is not the actions of a person who is serious about this nation. It is more in line with Chavez. Obama cannot dictate his attacks and expect Americans to be happy. I heard when Bush left office Pelosi was supposedly quoted: An anvil has just been lifted off her shoulders.

    We are well aware of how these leaders feel from the debt to the racism. When we re-elect anyone but Obama, there will be a bolder lifted off our backs. We can breathe in relief we have done our job well. No more of the hate and the attacks and depression that we all managed to muddle through because of the actions of this president.

    We are nearing the most important time in our life and God is on our side.

    Obama: War on the Classes

    War on the Women

    War on the GOP

    War on our civil rights under the Constitution.

    This does not make a president but a dictator.

    I’ve seen Dick Cheney fulfill every single requirement from that poem, except the very last one, in public. God blessed us by giving us Dick Cheney to look out for our national interests.

    Re bg #13 — I watched Trayvon’s parents being interviewed on 2 shows on Friday, I think, it was…

    First, with O’Reilly, his mother agreed with what it looked like O’Reilly was trying to accomplish: it’s best to allow the court to handle the matter now and not prejudge Zimmerman so we can all cool down. (His mother had already stated that she’d thought it was an accident, and I don’t recall her *restating* it during the interview.) The parents, their lawyer, all projected a loving, but understandably sad, manner – it was healing to watch the four of them.

    Not long after, I watched an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. At the point I started watching, he reminded TM’s mom that she’d said it was an accident and that maybe she wanted to “clarify” that remark. Well, she did. Or was she merely doing what she was told to do? What a sad, sad thing it was to witness: these words – the ugliest – came out: “he hunted down my son like a ( rabid animal? can’t remember) and shot him (might have been “in cold blood” again) — I wanted to run from what I was hearing again (those words hadn’t first been hers, I’m pretty sure – I think they were a congressperson’s)…I don’t recall their lawyer(s) being with them during this interview.

    I just felt awful for that woman. If she’s being used and manipulated by that DEMON party…they’re the most disgusting people on earth.

    The handling of this tragedy and the Ann Romney/”War on Women” are definitely clear indications that Breitbart was right: racial division and class warfare are at the heart of BO’s hope and change.

    The only thing he’s ever accomplished is DIVISION – divide people – stir up anger and resentment between them. There won’t be a minute of peace so long as that man and that party lead this nation. Guaranteed. Hell on earth.

    The above may have been posted. This vile and satanical person needs on the airways.

    But this give us more ammunition. I hope that Cheney never saw this vile and disturbing comment by MSNBC the proud network. If a republican had said this about a democratic president they would excoriated.

  • Patty

    needs to be taken OFF the airways.

    #22 I believe that obumer has declared war on black Americans also. He has emboldened the radicals (the thugs if you will) that proclaim to be the only hope black people have. He ignores the great hard working blacks and shame on them if they are conservative. It’s a shame but I don’t believe most of the back community realizes this.

    I have more faith in the blacks. We have seen the bad and the ugly of late. But their are some Great Americans who have step out of poverty and into a rich and full life. And yes, I said that. Because I am not a racist, I believe in equality and our Troops and I love my country. More and More every day because I DO see a renewed America and it is in the people and this next election.

    I love Dick Cheney. No, I mean I realllllllllly love Dick Cheney. Liz is great also.

    OT…………… about those 17 years of tax documents that Obama wants Romney to give up.
    Perfect opportunity to come back at him about sealed up documents. I would like to see Obama’s for his college years. How much did his school cost and who paid it? What did his tax return look like in those years? I hope Romney tells Obama that, like Obama, he will wait for 3 years into his term to release some for the public to see.

    This is a gold mine of opportunity in the making.

    Is there a video of Cheney’s address in Wyoming? Would love to see it.

    If you haven’t seen today’s Drudge check out the lead photo there of VP Cheney sizing up obie at That look would weaken carbon steel beams.
    IIrc that photo was snapped at obie’s swearing in.
    We have another guy, similar in many ways to Cheney in Newt Gingrich, if only Romney would recognize the fact and use him before we lose him.

    Aw, you meant he “verbally castigated” Obama.
