    Former U.S. President George H.W. Bush has been admitted to a hospital in Houston for a mild case of pneumonia but "is going to be fine," his spokesman said on Tuesday. Jim McGrath, official media representative for the 92-year-old former president, said Bush was hospitalized on Friday "for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest." "It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved," McGrath added in a statement.

    That wiley W. It's like he knew. Do you remember George W. Bush's Axis of Evil? At one time, the Washington Post considered it to be part of the 4th most important State of the Union address. "States like these, and their terrorist allies, constitute an axis of evil, arming to threaten the peace of the world. By seeking weapons of mass destruction, these regimes pose a grave and growing danger. They could provide these arms to terrorists, giving them the means to match their hatred. They could attack our allies or attempt to blackmail the United States. In any...

    Gorka says president made pragmatic call on Syrian strike, suggests little risk of escalation Sebastian Gorka, deputy assistant to the president, said on Friday morning that President Donald Trump’s populist supporters need not fear that the decision to strike a Syrian government target last week represents an embrace of neoconservatism. “It’s not a modification,” Gorka said Friday on “The Laura Ingraham Show.” “Donald J. Trump hasn’t changed from November 7 to Good Friday, April 14,” he said. “This isn’t 2003, this isn’t 1991 and the Gulf War, and the president has not changed one bit,” Gorka said. “This is not...

    Former President George W. Bush says he can’t remember if he said “that was some weird s***” after President Trump’s inauguration speech in January. He was asked about the alleged remark in an interview that aired on NPR’s “Morning Edition” Thursday. He does, however, clearly remember his awkward response to rain that day. “I wish I got the rain poncho on a little more cleanly,” Bush joked, referring to his struggle to put on a transparent poncho during the ceremony as it began to rain. “My daughters were aghast. ‘Dad, you’re a national tweet sensation. You’re trending,’ or whatever the...

    George W Bush, the former US president, is promoting a book of paintings, entitled Portraits of Courage: A Commander in Chief's Tribute to America's Warriors, depicting American soldiers - veterans from the ongoing "war on terror". The George W Bush Presidential Center tells us that the book "brings together sixty-six full-color portraits and a four-panel mural painted by President Bush of members of the United States military who have served our Nation with honour since 9/11 - and whom he has come to know personally". The hardcover edition costs an affordable $35; the deluxe, signed and personalised edition sets you...

    ere on the 10-year anniversary of the invasion of Iraq, I wonder how long it will be before we can discuss the war free from the contamination of myths. It may be sooner than many myth-purveyors expect. Just listen to this lecture by Mel Leffler, one of the leading historians of American diplomacy. He has been a harsh critic of Bush-era diplomacy and his speech does accept some of the conventional critique (specifically about the "hubris" of the Bush administration), but his analysis is far more balanced than the conventional wisdom on the topic. All in all, Leffler’s analysis is a...

    Let’s do a quick re-cap on the past 27yrs of America’s War in Iraq (1990-2017):1990-Iraq had the 4th largest army in the world (about the size of Spain, Italy, France, and Britain combined).  They had chemical, biological, and were working on making an atomic bomb (even had the bomb ready, but not the radioactive material).  1991-Iraq was invaded by a United Nations Coalition of forces, driven from Kuwait, and forced to agree to terms of surrender; terms which included getting rid of WMD.What’s WMD?  WMD stands for Weapon of Mass Destruction.   It’s a term often used to describe chemical weapons,...

    Yankees legend Derek Jeter and former Florida governor Jeb Bush are both working to put together bidding groups to make a run at buying the Marlins, according to a report from Charlie Gasparino and Brian Schwartz of FOX Business. There is at least one other rival bidding group, per the report. Jeter has already launched the popular Player’s Tribune website since hanging up his spikes, but could now seemingly embark upon another major business undertaking in advance of his likely Hall-of-Fame enshrinement in 2019. The former shortstop is said to be working with an investment banker who was previously affiliated...

    Former president George W. Bush reportedly said Donald Trump’s inaugural speech was “some weird sh-t.” Bush made the comments after the January inauguration ceremony, which was also attended by Presidents Obama, Carter and Clinton, according to New York Magazine. “That was some weird sh-t,” Bush said before departing the dais, where he infamously struggled to wrangle a poncho in the day’s downpour.

    Former Florida governor and Republican presidential primary candidate Jeb Bush criticized President Donald Trump for “saying things that aren’t true, that are distractions from the task at hand.” Bush made the criticism during an interview that aired Sunday with WFOR’s Jim DeFede. “He hasn’t shifted to being President in the way that people are used to, and I think that’s the problem,” Bush said, adding later: “He’s a distraction in and of himself.”

    While their husbands may be the ones in the Oval Office, first ladies have plenty of power of their own. In addition to playing hostess at one of the most famous residences in the world, America's first ladies have traditionally used their positions to shape policy, champion causes and help spark real change. Two months into her husband's presidency, though, first lady Melania Trump is signaling her role will be much more subdued. Though the first lady is viewed favorably by 52% of Americans — far higher than her husband's latest approval rating — Mrs. Trump has taken a hands-off...

    Former Florida Gov. and onetime GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush said Sunday that President Donald Trump is making life a little more difficult for himself. In an interview with Jim DeFede for "Facing South Florida" that aired Sunday, Bush said Trump "should stop saying things that aren't true, that are distractions from the task at hand." "He's a distraction in and of himself," he said. "He's got a lot of work to do, and some of these things — the wiretapping and all of this stuff — is a complete distraction that makes it harder to accomplish the things I...

    One day in late spring in the early days of the George W. Bush administration, FDA inspectors visited the headquarters of Sargento cheese in Plymouth, Wisconsin—a routine visit as part of the federal government's efforts to ensure the safety of the food we eat. The inspectors took samples of cheese to test for bacteria. Sargento conducted tests on cheese from the same lot. A week later, the results from both sets of tests were in—the cheese was bacteria-free. Sargento, having gotten the all-clear from the government, shipped the cheese to stores across the country. Two months later, however, the FDA...

    This is the 13th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War II. What if President George W. Bush had not invaded Iraq? I suggest this scenario: 1. Saddam Hussein would have become a bigger threat to the region. He had clearly come to the conclusion that the West would not stop him and was acting as such. 2. Iraq would have continued shooting at U.S. and UK planes enforcing UN resolutions. How many times do you allow someone to fire missiles at your aircraft? 3. What about Israel? We do know today that Iraq won't be attacking Israel or...

    California Democrat Rep. Maxine Waters complained that Barrack Obama didn’t get rid of Bush-era U.S. attorneys fast enough back in May of 2009. Maxine Waters: “As we understand it, the protocol has been that U.S. attorneys hand in their resignations and would give the new administration an opportunity to make new appointments, we don’t see that happening quite fast enough.” The fake news media has been wringing their hands over Sessions’ request for Obama-era attorneys to resign as if it’s something that has never been done before. This was standard operating procedure after Obama became President. They also failed to...

    Full title : "George W Bush praises Jimmy Kimmel's 'damn good' anti-Trump Oscars monologue and laughs along as the comedian roasts Donald" George W. Bush heaped praise on Jimmy Kimmel for his anti-Trump opening monologue at the Oscars on Thursday night, telling the comedian enthusiastically that his performance was 'damn good'. In a rare and lighthearted television appearance, Bush steered clear of mentioning the current president by name but was led into several subtle jabs at him by his mischievous host. Among the slights was a compliment for Kimmel's decidedly anti-Trump debut at the Academy Awards. 'I saw your opening....
