Joining Obama in Wishing Cheney a Speedy Recovery

Most people know about former Vice President Cheney’s recent hospitalization, but few know that President Obama called him “to wish him a speedy recovery“.  More should.

It was a classy act.

So, let me join other conservative bloggers in tipping my hat to the president for calling one of his staunchest critics to wish him well after his recent heart attack:

. . .this classy deserves some recognition. Good for Obama for swallowing his pride and doing the presidential thing. Why, even Jim Treacher was moved to tip his cap to Barry O — and he just got run over by one of Obama’s guys. Talk about goodwill.



  1. Kudos to Obama, and a speedy and full recovery to Vice President Cheney.

  2. Indeed.
    Glad he had it in him. . . Good Job Mr. President.
    Get well soon Mr Vice President Cheney.

  3. Soft bigotry of low expectations, anyone?

    Wishing a previous Vice President of the United States a speedy recovery is indeed a classy act. It is also something that previous Presidents did with little fanfare or notice, because there was a certain level of class that people took for granted. That this incident is an occasion of praise, is a measure of (1) how far down we’ve gone and (2) how partisan and classless is Obama most of the time.

  4. No classy it is not!!!! Politically nessary it is. I do not think it needed to be publicized. If you have class, you just do it

  5. Barry does nothing that doesn’t have something in it for him.
