Bush 41 in intensive care
with ´stubborn fever´

CNN, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/26/2012 6:11:50 PM

Former President George H.W. Bush remains in an intensive care unit at a Houston hospital with a "stubborn fever that is slightly elevated," his spokesman told CNN on Wednesday. He has been in the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital since Sunday, spokesman Jim McGrath said, and has been hospitalized there for over a month. McGrath said earlier Wednesday that Bush had spent Christmas with members of his family and was in good spirits. Bush was in guarded condition and on a liquid diet that took effect with his transfer to the ICU, but McGrath could not offer more details about

Up until 2008, I have said the greatest mistake American voters ever made was to cast this good man aside in favor of the arkansas pervert.
Now I consider it to be the second greatest mistake...
Our prayers will be with George H.W. Bush, an authenic American president.
How far we have fallen.

I´m very sorry to read that GHWB is not doing so well. It will be a sad day when this good, honorable man is no longer with us. I hope he has many more years.

I had severe coughing about the same time President Bush got his bug. Took me 4 days to get over my bug, then 2 weeks to recover from weakness. This is a very bad sickness from which to recover.

Yikes. Just a few days ago he was in for a few days so he could get stronger. Now he´s in ICU. Hoping for the best, but this sounds bad.

My church and my family have started a 24 hour prayer vigil for this patriarch of the finest political family America has ever produced.
The Bush family is the closest thing we have in America to a royal family. As far as I´m concerned, a Bush should should hold the Executive Branch of our government going forward , as per the constitution.
All of this said, President Bush did RAISE taxes. God will punish him for that...and now is the time when the chickens have come home to roost.

This is not the time to talk about policies. This is the time to offer our prayers and support to a man that has given a lifetime of service to his country. Pres Bush was putting his life on the line in service before 99% of us were even born. So anyone wants to criticize his policies while he is lying in an ICU hospital bed and fighting for his life should maybe reexamine their own lives.

I wish him well. So far we are still allowed free speech in this country and there is no reason why people on this site should be attacked for their opinion. Lets not pretend that any of the Bush´s are conservatives, they are Rinos. We thank them for their services but Bush 41 announced the the New World Order back in ´91. I personally never want to see another Bush in any office.

What #10 and #13 said. BTW, let´s not "pretend" that Conservatives would denigrate a fine man who served this Country for more years than some can count, and who may be near the end of his days on this earth. It´s not "opinions" that are being "attacked", it´s the appalling lack of empathy for the Bush family.

This doesn´t sound good :-( He has a rare form of Parkinson´s that may be making this worse. Praying that he pulls through and is allowed more time with his family, and if that is not to be, that he will slip into eternity quickly and painlessly. He´s a good man, who is human and has made mistakes, just like all of us. I wish President Bush and his family the best.

Bush is a good man and was a good President. Not perfect, but who is? He didn´t have a chance to finish the job, unfortunately. He certainly had a better grasp of world affairs than his successor, BJ Clinton, and his love for his country is without doubt.

Lucianne staff - are there or are there not rules here on this site about etiquette? I thought we are not to address one another directly. I find the comments by posts #10, #13, #15, & #19 to be as rude and insulting as they thought other comments were. Are we are now allowed to be rude and disrespectful to one another if we are not in full agreement?

A friend once said that he voted for president based on what he thought the person would be like if he was a dictator. Under this rule, I think #41 and #43 would have still gotten my votes.

I first met #41 when he was a congressman and I was impressed every time I met him or saw him in person.

I think he was exposed to something really dangerous a few years back but don´t remember what it was? Some chemical or biological agent he was exposed to in Iraq
back during Desert Storm? The same kind of agent blamed for Gulf War Syndrome? I remember reading something about it, it was a wonder he is still alive? It may have weakened his overall health?

GHWB is a genuine patriot and fine man who proved to be a pretty good president. In some alternative universe, knowing what I know now I would gladly vote for him again.

RR would have been a tough act to follow for any Republican successor. And even he made his share of mistakes, which we on this board tend to gloss over.

But now ought not be a time for politics. Thoughts and prayers for President Bush and his family.

Bunkersville, Nevada — Cliven Bundy’s ranch, recently the site of a tense stand-off that started over two weeks ago between the federal government and the Bundy family, had morphed into a good old-fashioned family picnic complete with live country music, hamburgers, and hotdogs Friday. A week after the Bureau of Land Management’s armed force left Bunkersville, Bundy and his supporters continue to make the family’s case relating to Bundy’s right to graze his cattle on public land his family has been on for many years.

The president´s speeches may need to be accompanied by a laugh track from now on, considering the crickets he received at his appearance in Community College of Allegheny County, in Oakdale, Pa., on Wednesday. Although he tried to tout his new spending program, both Obama´s talking points and attempts at humor didn´t go over so well: At the end, when the president walked back from the podium to smile and wave at the roughly 60 people in the bleachers 20 feet behind him, he faced a unfriendly wall of faces. The White House video of the bleacher’s front rank shows three men with their hands crossed, one with his hands stuck

Two Democratic Party candidates in the primary race for California´s 33rd congressional district in West Los Angeles have accused local party officials of using an arbitrary fundraising minimum to favor established insiders--then raising that minimum at the last moment to exclude them from a recent candidates´ forum. Democrats Kristie Holmes and Barbara Mulvaney issued a joint press release earlier this week, accusing the Pacific Palisades Democratic Club (PPDC) of "uninviting" them from a forum on Sunday, April 13 "after first zealously pursuing them." Only candidates who participated were eligible for the club´s

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

On Tuesday morning, a plane owned in trust by the Bank of Utah showed up in a very visible area of the Mehrabad Airport in Tehran, the capital of the Islamic Republic of Iran. What was it doing there exactly? Nobody knows, reports The New York Times. Under President Barack Obama, the United States has eased some of the long-standing punitive economic sanctions against Iran. Still, very little American — or European — economic activity is allowed inside the religious theocracy. The Bank of Utah is certainly no Wells Fargo. The Ogden-based community bank has all of 13 branches including

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
