Got nothing good to say about Poppy Bush.

He was the one who decided that we were going to be a Spanish/English country with no southern border.

I can’t help but think the loss of his wife has something to do with this turn of events.

Stay comfortable, Mr. Bush.
He has a lot of blood pressure issues.
His age may be a factor, plus that he is non-ambulatory; cannot walk unaided. The big veins in his legs are not flexed enough to keep the blood flowing. More range of motion sessions may be helpful. Better physical therapy than yet another pill.

Low blood pressure can be indicative of sepsis. Not a good sign.

From ww2 to the cia director to an CHINA ambassadorship and eventually the WH, he has been in the midst of more history than most could ever dream of.

And maybe some he would prefer folks forget. It’s not easy being in a family dynasty, ask the Kennedys and the Rockefellers.

"I can’t help but think the loss of his wife has something to do with this turn of events."

That, or that he's almost 94 years old and has been sporadically hospitalized for years and years now.

“I can’t help but think the loss of his wife has something to do with this turn of events.”

My hale and hearty paternal grandfather died one week after his wife...of broken heart syndrome.

Deliberate non enforcement of laws and borders to change the demographics of the country against the will of the citizens and manipulating elections to make sure the citizens cannot stop the plan is not admirable behavior.

“George H.W. Bush hospitalized for low blood pressure and fatigue”

He should be hospitalized for signing the gun free school zones act for all the carnage that’s caused.

The Bush family tuned on Trump and Republicans. Bush Sr. sold the USA out to Mexico.

As with McCain, I’ve got little respect or care for those people.
