    Really? That's it?

    You don't like what he did while in office, and you don't like his politics, so all you can say is that he is an asshole? One word back at ya.....Vapid.

    Turns out he suffered a minor heart attack.

    WASHINGTON -- Former Vice President Dick Cheney suffered a minor heart attack but is resting comfortably in a Washington hospital and will be released in a day or two, his family announced Tuesday.

    "Former Vice President Cheney was admitted to (George Washington University) Hospital after experiencing chest pain. Lab testing revealed evidence of a mild heart attack. He underwent a stress test and a heart catheterization. He is feeling good and is expected to be discharged in the next day or two," reads a statement from his office.

    Earlier in the day, a source close to Cheney said he remained in the hospital, a day after complaining of chest pains, out of an abundance of caution. Cheney family members said Cheney was stable and watched the Olympics Monday night.

    Cheney's family joined him at the hospital on Tuesday, where wife Lynne and daughters Liz and Mary and former White House aides all had lunch together. Cheney was planning to spend the afternoon editing a chapter in his book, Liz Cheney told friends.

    Cheney assistant Peter Long issued a statement Monday night that the 69-year-old Cheney was sent to the hospital where his doctors were evaluating the situation.

    Cheney has a history of heart problems, including four heart attacks starting at age 37.

    Maybe I'm in a very small minority here, but I like Cheney, and believe he would have made a much better president than Bush. I suspect that most people can't handle his matter-of-fact, straight-forward demeanor, but I like that in a person.

    As much as I loathe the man, I wish him a full recovery.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: Former U.S. VP Dick Cheney hospitalized with chest pains

    I have this recurring fantasy:

    Cheney is having a heart attack and he has a vision of Clarence the angel who shows him what life on earth would have been like had he never been born. Cheney suddenly understands all the harm he has caused to the world and wakes up, healthy and fit, and determined to undo all the evil he has caused.

    It'd make a great holiday movie, you have to admit!

    What harm would that be?

    I have often thought the same thing. He's a lot closer to the center on quite a few issues. A neocon, though. He would have been aggressive.

    Re: Former U.S. VP Dick Cheney hospitalized with chest pains

    It's his disrespect of the Constitution and the rule of law that I fault him most on. His ignoring of treaties, his claim that he is not a part of either the legislative or executive branch and therefore doesn't have to answer to anyone, his proud flaunting of the separation of powers.

    A true conservative who loved our Constitution and country would agree on that, and many have.
