Dick Cheney working on book about heart treatment

NEW YORK (AP) - Former Vice President Dick Cheney, one of the world's most prominent heart patients, is working on a book about his many battles with coronary disease and the revolutionary changes in treatment that helped keep him alive.

The 71-year-old Cheney is collaborating with his cardiologist, Dr. Jonathan Reiner, and with his daughter, Liz Cheney. Scribner, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, announced Monday that the book is scheduled for next fall. It is currently untitled.

"It explains and talks about all the developments in cardiology by going through my own case," the former vice president said Monday during a brief telephone interview. "I'm alive today because of the tremendous advances that have been made."

Well, you know it'll end up in the dollar bin after 3 months on the "fake" bestseller list (you know, the type that is bought by the pound)

That man should have been dead a long time ago. Evil fucker needs to drop dead right now.

4. I hope he acknowledges the American people for paying for his treatment.

If he's had that much care he can write a book about, I think he should mention us.

12. It's like...

It's like listening to a plant describe the motives of a mammal. How would Dick Cheney know anything about having a heart? He is one of the most heartless human beings ever.

13. I am a liberal, and I have a heart-The replies to the news article here are cruel and heartless

 

I could just remain silent because I know what shall follow

but I am sorry, this is wrong.

This man was born with a handicap. He has endured a lifetime of heart problems.

And he attained the highest of the high office in the land, with that handicap.

Now, in all his public life, we do not like his POLITICAL views.
Somewhere he turned to the dark side (could be that he was chubby and made fun of early in life, or bitter over his being handicapped and not perfect, who knows).

But are we not liberals? Can we not put the petty aside and look at a handicapped person
overcoming that and going on?

Can we not, especially at this time of the year, have a little compassion for a person with a family and kids and put aside what his political person is?

What if he was your grandfather? What if your grandfather was on the verge of death every single day of his life?

We are suppose to have compassion for those worse off than we are. Even if they are billionaires, and even if we don't agree with much of anything from him and his daughters.

I am sorry, but I don't personally wish him ill, or his kids or grandkids.

It is a form of bullying in itself.

Yes, he gets better care than all of us, but his job has that perk for life.
We all should have the same chance.

But it doesn't follow that we wish him ill now, while he is alive.
We should look and say wow, if he can do it, perhaps your grandfather or father can have hope that if they had the same thing, perhaps they could survive too.

And while a regular person might not have the same doctors, someone doing experimental surgery allows other doctors to later pass it along nationwide, worldwide

Didn't people here marvel when Steve Jobs lived longer than most anyone with his disease and aren't we happy Justice Ginsburg has survived longer than a regular person with a similiar disease?

Or at least, do like the Elvis Costello song does when he bitterly sang about Margaret Thatcher. Wait til they die, then "Tramp the Dirt Down".

His grandkids had nothing to do with anything he did. Do you wish them not to have their grandfather? I just find that heartless(pun is or is not intended)

And that more than anything, makes us as bad as them.
I thought the very difference in us vs. them is, we have heart.

(here come the barbs I know. Probably should just have shut my mouth and let the thread pass by without saying anything.)

14. The title should read, "How to Overhaul a Sludge Pump"

That's because he has no heart.
