Cheney returns to work with a cane

Associated Press


WASHINGTON - Vice President Dick Cheney walked with a cane Wednesday as he returned to work at the White House after weekend surgery to repair aneurysms behind both knees.

Cheney appeared to move gingerly in the Rose Garden when he appeared with President Bush and military leaders. Bush glanced behind him to see the vice president's progress down several steps.

"He's feeling good, getting along great," said Cheney's spokeswoman, Lea Anne McBride. She said his recovery was exceeding doctors' expectations.

Cheney was discharged from the hospital on Sunday and worked from home on Monday and Tuesday, McBride said.

45. I saw that too --this dumb ass is running our country?


Why would you walk out of the hospital when it is more than smart to go to the car in a wheel chair?

Then ---- walk on a cane two days later.

If this man is still alive 2 years from now, it will be a miracle made by the devil himself.

14. His hands have that gray look, to me. Looks kinda like
he's already been embalmed. He's much worse off than we're being told.

18. Well Strom Thurmond kept on and on (and on)
Satan's a generous guy when it comes to likes of Dick Cheney because his shrivelled soul barely constitutes an appetizer.

7. Bit by bit, he's becoming Mr. Potter
Of course, he's already like Potter on the inside; but interesting that he's physically resembling him more and more.

Now all he needs is a black cape and top hat for a truly magnificent retro Dickensian look.

when you get to be his age. Isn't he about the same age as John Edwards?

22. No! He's not that old, though. Mid-60's, maybe?
I'm still reeling over the photos they had of him as a young man before the 2004 election. You wouldn't believe it was the same guy.
