George Bush Sr.

Condition Worsens

Moved to ICU

breaking news

The condition of former President George H.W. Bush appears to be deteriorating ... he's been in intensive care since Sunday, and his people are hedging on his prospects for recovery, saying they're "cautiously optimistic."

88-year-old Bush was hospitalized in November due to a bronchitis-like cough, and has remained hospitalized since.

Bush suffers from a condition called vascular Parkinsonism, which Bush has described as a kind of leg paralysis where "you tell your legs to move, and they don't move."  It's unclear if the condition is related to his current hospitalization.

Bush's fever has gone up in the last few days, and doctors have been unable to control it.

People can be very cruel. He is a good family man, and for those who wish ill on unto others......

If anyone wonders why our country is going to hell, they only need to look at the comments here. Mr. Bush is a decorated war veteran and served our country honorably for many years, unlike most of you. He deserves our respect and best wishes. My prayers to President Bush and the entire Bush family. May you get well soon.

But isn't this also the guy that said he doesn't remember where he was when JFK was shot? Even though there's a picture of a person that closely resembles Bush in Dallas that day. You'd think any adult alive in the US that day would remember it.

While I detest the fruit of his loins, Hurricane W, with the heat of a thousand white-hot suns, I did like HW. He is a good, kind, decent man, and I am sending good thoughts his way.

Politics aside, he is a human being. Some of the comments being posted here by the mindless, disrespectful, hate seething imbeciles are absolutely disgusting, and only degrading to themselves. Why invest so much time and thought into someone you despise so much? Have some dignity and keep your insensitive and cowardly comments to yourselves. My thoughts are with the Bush family during what is always an extremely difficult and hurtful time, for anyone who loves someone and has to stand by while they slip away. There have been so many tragedies, especially in recent times, that deserve our thoughts and respect. Here's to hope.

Praying for your return to health President Bush. A true statesman whose service to the country is admirable, they do not make them like this anymore.

George is a good man, he is a true American. He spent the majority of his life serving the people of our country. We all should be praying for his recovery.

Youtube the clip of him speaking at Pres. Ford's funeral. Ask yourself why he smiled when he mentioned the death of JFK. What was there to smile about?
