Bill Clinton to Undergo Bypass Surgery

Bill Clinton to Undergo Bypass Surgery

NEW YORK (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton will undergo heart bypass surgery after complaining of mild chest pain and shortness of breath, his office said Friday.

Clinton was being admitted to New York Presbyterian Hospital-Columbia, a statement said. He had seen a doctor first on Thursday, and additional tests Friday revealed the need for the surgery, it said.

My thoughts go out to the Clintons. Lets hope Bill makes a full and speedy recovery.

Probably not much to worry about though. Even triple bypass procedures have become quite routine.

I question the timing of this bypass.

(I wasn't going to stoop so low, but after watching the Kerry/Edwards lie-fest last night, I felt obligated. Then again, maybe it was thier performance that caused ole Bill's ticker to erupt.)

You bet Clinton is having heart failure. After the whopper week that the GOP had, he must realize the fact that he, his wife and the Democrats will be sitting on the outside of the White House for a lot longer than he thought. Do the Dems really think they have a chance? They all look like nervous cats on a hot tin roof as they feverishly blink ans stammer their way through their response to media queries. See ya in November.

OK, that doesnít make any sense. This is the kind of paranoia that you experience after 8 years of the Clinton Administration. I feel much better now.

Get well real soon Bubba! (note the sarcasm)

PS: I'm sure Hilary is very worried about losing Bill ( there's that sarcasm again).

Rob:

C'mon people. Be nice.

We may not like Clinton. We may disagree with a lot of what he stands for. We may make him the butt of some fairly mean jokes from time to time, but I don't think any of us wish he would die or become seriously ill.

Lets leave those kind of ugly comments to the left.

AsExpected:

WEST ALLIS, Wis. (AP) President Bush on Friday wished Bill Clinton ``best wishes for a swift and speedy recovery.''

``He's is in our thoughts and prayers,'' Bush said at a campaign rally.

Bush's audience of thousands in West Allis, Wis., booed. Bush did nothing to stop them.

Who cares? That took up more space than the Russian seige! I need a bypass but do you see me saying anything about it?? I don't even like Clinton but I don't wish him harm; I just don't think he should take up all the news with so much news going on in the world. Where are people's priorities?

Best news I've heard all day.

We may not like Clinton. We may disagree with a lot of what he stands for. We may make him the butt of some fairly mean jokes from time to time, but I don't think any of us wish he would die or become seriously ill.

We don't? ;]

You're right - I wouldn't wish a bypass and heart attack on anyone, even Bill. That said, I'm not even going to pretend to cry for him. Mean or not, I'm not nearly dishonest enough to be able to do that with a straight face.

Cool Tester:

We've had some negative comments about Clinton needing bypass surgery. I'm not thrilled with that at all. It sounds like something the left would do, and in fact did with Ronald Reagan. In my opinion, Clinton was one of the must ineffectual presidents in history. I did not vote for him and I was happy when he was out of office, and even more happy Gore didn't replace him. Even so, he was the president and that deserves a measure of respect (and I respectfully disagree with Ironbear, wishing Clinton well is not dishonest - it's just the human thing to do).

I wish Clinton well and hope for a speedy recovery. We already lost one president this year, we don't need to lose another.

So please, don't be a liberal, keep the comments civil.

Yeah, c'mon guys, Clinton was no angel, but snide remarks for a man who needs heart surgery belong on DU, not here.

LF:

We do need to keep it civil. Part of leadership is leading by example. I don't think any of the people posting comments are running for office, but most of us probably do feel that ours is the superior position. We should hold ourselves to a higher standard than our opposition.

Good luck Bill.

Tropean:

Clinton's failure and/or refusal to adequately respond to the first World Trade Center attack, the bombings of the African Embassies, and the attack on the USS Cole led DIRECTLY to September 11.

And now we are supposed to feign concern over his declining health?

Please.

Tropean:

Meezer gets my nomination for Oxymoronic Post of the Week. I do "respect the office." But, as you make clear, Bubba is the "ex-President of the United States." Which makes him now just a chump with a fat book contract and a bad heart.

And blood on his hands.

Ain't karma a bitch?

Best wishes to Bill Clinton on a speedy and full recovery.

Thoughts and prayers are with you.

"Clinton's failure and/or refusal to adequately respond to the first World Trade Center attack, the bombings of the African Embassies, and the attack on the USS Cole led DIRECTLY to September 11."

I might agree with you Tropean if you could prove Clinton did this on purpose. Liberals accuse Bush of causing 9/11 and increasing the risks of terrorism through his foreign policy. This thinking is no different from yours. Clinton was inept in his handling of these situations, I agree (one of many things that I did not like about his presidency). However, you are making a mistake liberals make all the time in regards to Bush - you hate the man's policies, therefore you hate him on a personal level and assume he is a bad person on all conceivable levels. If I'm wrong, and you making such a rash assumption, then I can only assume you would make such judgements about anyone who irks you. Perhaps they guy who's dog crapped in your yard should suffer a heart attack?

I am relieved by one thing. Having searched through a number of blogs on this subject, I find that conservatives like Tropean are rare. Interesting, as the liberals were more than happy to celebrate the death of Ronald Reagan (and Strom Thurman, for that matter).

firstbrokenangel:

By the way, as noted in an article by Kevin above, NO ONE BOOED when President Bush wished him well. Bush is a decent man and he brought up both Clinton and Russia and nobody booed. Bush is an honest man, he sincerely cares even if he doesn't agree with you but the man was our president (gag, gag) and he was giving him his just do.

Now what was weird was how Kerry put it - anybody notice that???

Mr. President, I love you so much.I wish you a complete and speedy recovery. I pray to Allah that you come out from this surgery with no scratches. I know you will make through this. You made it through all those bad things they did to you while at the white house. I hope I can meet with you and shake your hands one day. I believe my hands are the some of the very few in this world you have as yet shook.

Thanks
