Dick Cheney shows off heart device in interview, says Obama is a one-term president

Former U.S. Vice President Dick Cheney has had five heart attacks. He turns 70 later this month. Below, he shows off his battery-powered heart.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney is a changed man, sort of.

President George W. Bush's right-hand man has a battery-powered heart, and uses a BlackBerry and Kindle.

"I didn't have even a cell phone in the White House," Cheney admitted in an interview with NBC's "Today" show.

Cheney, however, remains a die-hard Republican who thinks President Obama will get booted from office in 2012 because he overestimated the public's support for health care reform.

"I think he'll be a one term President," Cheney said.

He added that President Obama now understands that the Bush administration's war on terror was the right course of action in the years following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Critics have blasted Cheney's support for harsh interrogation tactics, such as waterboarding, for suspected terrorists.

"I think he's learned that what we did was far more appropriate than he ever gave us credit for while he was a candidate," Cheney said of Obama.

Cheney declined to say who he thought would unseat President Obama in two years, but called former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin "interesting" and praised her reality show as "very good."

"She's clearly a factor within the Republican Party," Cheney said.

As for his relationship with Bush, Cheney said it is "pretty good."

Cheney noted that his upcoming memoir will detail some of the differences the two men had.

"I have a bit of the sense that I'll have the last word," Cheney said.

He admitted that Bush considered dropping him from the ticket in 2004 and even offered to step down as vice president three times because of his controversial image.

Bush released his memoir, "Decision Points," last fall.

Cheney, who turns 70 later this month, has not decided whether he will get a heart transplant. He suffered his fifth heart attack last February.

For now, he is outfitted with a battery-powered heart pump.

"It's a wondrous device," Cheney said. "I'm here today because we have that technology."

Dick Cheney is the devil himself.  About his "Obama-one-term-comment..."...his reasons for saying that are strictly vindictive however, regarding Obama...let's just can only break so many promises and push a New World Order agenda, for so long...before the public "wises up".

But when you look at this Cheney never got the chance to be president and never will so he is just a SORE LOSER and need to shut the hell up. Cheney you will never be president so even if President Obama and I say it again for you President Obama only serves one term he will still have one up on you because you will NEVER EVER and I say it again NEVER EVER become president.

Who can believe Cheney with his lying ass??!!  Further, I am tired of people proclaiming President Obama a "one-term president" when they give no specific reasons.  There are many whites and Blacks who were always on the "anti-Obama" bandwagon and they see themselves as "intellectuals," "sophisticates," and they like.  They want us to believe that they are so "enlightened" but actually are selling us a crock of garbage!  These pseudo-intellectual sophisticates never put forth any valid arguments, but merely talk in enlightenment double-speak.


Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld (Rumsfield), Sarah Palin, the Bushes, and Clintons worked very hard in concert with big business to further subjugate the masses.  And while President Obama recognizes that he must "play ball" with big business he has accomplished a lot more than any of them ever did.  Cheney and his ilk are fearful that THEIR status quo is threatened and may ultimately be changed!

He should talk, at least Obama had the chance to be the #1 man, while he Chaney, settled to second best and not to the smartes man in history. He should just shut up and try to enjoy some happy times with his battery-powered heart pump.

May be a one term president but not a thief and a murderer.

U know what praise be that President Obama will be a one-term President, at least he won't go on interview showing how a gadget has to keep him alive.   He will leave the office, happier and healthier and as my mother always said "the corner stone that the builder refuses, will eventually be the one the foundation needs" then they'll miss him!!
