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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.”
