HOUSTON (AP) A spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush is in the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital.

Bush's spokesman, Jim McGrath, said late Wednesday that the former president was admitted to the ICU on Sunday at Methodist Hospital, "following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever."

***** “He is a good and decent man.”*****

He is also a Man of tremendous Presence (and a fantastic memory) ... I have met him twice, both times he was Vice President.

The second time we met he remembered and addressed me by my “First” name (Last Name being on the Uniform) and it freaked all my fellow shipmates out... they asked “You know him?” (It is a good story)

For a Man of such accomplishment he is so humble and down to earth.

GOOD STUFF TO HEAR. THANKS!

Maybe we can get a movie made of his life, by someone we can trust, like Gary Sinese.

Bush’s first real job led all the way to the Presidency. That is the reason he smiles.

He was very much a CIA spook and with all his ominous NWO speak, one really does have to wonder...

However if the NWO conspiracy theorists are correct you would think Bush Sr. would have access to all that infamous supposed CIA life extension tech...

Best wishes to George HW Bush and for his continued good health. I have been recently socked with a number of bugs over the last 3 months (contracted from a co-worker who has a daughter in a Chicago day-care center and he was pretty sick for quite a while from all the bugs going around in 0bama’s old stomping grounds) and now I am almost over it - one thing that helped with stomach problems and coughing was in my case was making sure I ate broccoli - it helps suppress stomach infections and cancer and suppressed a nausea problem I had.

I’m sure GHW sees this like I do. He’s had a long and exceptional life, filled with achievement and fulfillment far beyond the experience of most Americans. There is no doubt that he’s lived a blessed life.

There’s every chance that his body has finally worn out, and is ready for final retirement. No shame in that. If that’s the case, then I wish him smooth passage to the next life.

Funny you should mention broccoli in a thread about GHWB. x41 is notorious for his presidential anti-broccoli statement.
I do not like broccoli and I haven’t liked it since I was a little kid and my mother made me
eat it. And I’m President of the United States and I’m not going to eat any more broccoli.
Now look, this is the last statement I’m going to have on broccoli. 22 March 1990

...”I’ve had a bad feeling for the last week. When you are 88 an in the hospital that long its not good. I hope something happens and he recovers but Fox News says all three sons are there so I’m sure the doctors told them to stick around. Very sad.”...

And, I think a daughter is flying in from somewhere else. Where there is life, there is hope, but he has been sick now for a few weeks and his age makes resistance harder. I had my flu shot but got an upper respiratory viral illness anyway about four weeks ago..Some effects are still with me..Lots of folks around here have had this virus..I expect President Bush began with something like that..The elderly are very vulnerable during flu season.

Nope, not possible. Only W and Jeb, of the 4 sons. The other two sons have absolutely nothing to do with politics for themselves, never have, never will.

The daughter likewise.

Many grandchildren in the family so there’s that.

Jeb’s son George P is getting ready to run for office in TX so I hear. Haven’t heard which office.

To: GraceG; Revolting cat!

His other two sons (besides W and Jeb) have never been into politics for themselves and never will be. Same goes for his daughter. Time to get real. All of these people are getting old themselves. Their life patterns are long ago established. So, no, what Revolting cat! wrote about the number of potential presidents isn’t true.

There are quite a few grandchildren. Of those, the ONE we hear is planning to run for office (here in TX) is Jeb’s son George P.

It isn’t correct that his surviving children are possible presidents. Neil Bush, Marvin Bush and daughter Dorothy have never, and will never, run for office. Time to get real. They are all getting old themselves and personally desire no political office. Of the grandkids, so far only Jeb’s son George P wants to run for office. He’s expected to do so in TX but don’t yet know for which one.

No one was advocating that any of them would actually ever run for president, exactly. Unless you are a Bush family member using words such as never, really are not correct either.

The scriptures tell us that in order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, one must be born again. I have NO idea what god you worship, but mine so loved the world that He gave His only son, that we might have eternal life.

I don’t know what scriptures you read and don’t much care.

Unless you have God on the phone and can put him through to me, I file your stuff away with the rest of the fundamentalist nonsense.

I will not tell my son, a Jew, that he is somewhat less than because some vituperating snake handling reverend from the bible belt says so.

Your belief is in a sheaf of paper, not the Almighty. otherwise you would repent yourself of your narrow minded Calvinist bigotry.
