Praying for him and his family.

We’re praying for you President G. H. W. Bush and for your wife, Barbara.

We’re praying for you too President GW Bush and for your wife Laura and your children.

I would hope and pray President George H. W. Bush would make it to his 90th birthday. At 88 years old he is doing MORE than well. God bless you Mr. President!!!!!

You don't get to heaven on the sins of others.

Only 4 Presidents lived past their 90th birthday—Ford, Reagan, John Adams, and Hoover. Truman lived to 88 years and 7 months. George H. W. Bush is now 88 years and 5 months old, so the 6th-longest-lived of all 43 Presidents (I’m counting Cleveland only once). Carter is three-and-a-half months younger than GHWB.

Still Bush 1 or Bush 2 were night and day better than any damn democrat in the last 100 years.

As to Bush’s sins, anyone without sin cast the first stone.

I don’t disagree! I think we could possibly continue to exist for a few decades with either Bush at the helm. With Obama, maybe another year.

Prayers for G H W Bush. Much more of a man than the joker currently in the white hut.

He is a GREAT GUY. Funnier than crap - I’ve met him twice (once as prez). As nice as they come.

Only problem is that he wasn’t up to playing hardball in the world of politics - and the Dems ran over him.

I am beginning to grow rather fond of the idea of Republic of Texas2.

I have had a chronic cough since the week before Thanksgiving.

It is miserable and you miss thing like 2 Thanksgiving (my family and Mr. hummingbird's family). Who wants to through a Thanksgiving with all of that delicious food when someone's cough sounds like an espresso machine. And it goes on and on and on.

Just started feeling better yesterday. Had to go to one of neighborhood emergency centers TWICE.

Saw pulmonary doctor last week. I wonder if I would be able to see the recommended specialist under ObamaCare.

Get well soon, Me. President. Methodist Hospital is an excellent hospital so he has that going for him. Our prayers couldn't hurt, too.

"I had read somewhere that he is not able to walk anymore either."

He has been very weak, even before all this. He was in a wheelchair before getting this coughing episode.

I have read he has Parkinson's also - can't verify that, though.
