George H.W. Bush doing ‘much better’ after bout with pneumonia

So why did they lie for weeks about bronchitis?

As usual DUers were on top of this.

He is still in hospital

Appearing on “Andrea Mitchell Reports” Friday, Former National Security Adviser General Brent Scowcroft said that his friend President George H. W. Bush is doing “much better” after a recent health scare:

“I think he’s doing much better now. He had some respiratory problems that they were very afraid would go into a serious form of pneumonia, and I’m not an expert on the medical diagnosis, but he’s doing fine now. I talked to him a few days ago. And he’s his old self… His spirits are fine.”

1. Lucky for him, he has the best healthcare money can buy

If only the rest of us had that experience. With no worries about the bill.

6. I want him to get well, and be around when Hillary45 kicks his son Jeb's butt in 2016

 

will be nice to see Bush lose to a Clinton again in a presidential election

Get well soon Mr. President. Hope the media again is in your hotel room like for some reason it was on election night 2000 when that coded message was sent out.
(never had I ever seen a tv camera in the room of one of the candidates families so often
WHILE THE POLLS WERE STILL OPEN on all the networks then. Seemed weird then, seems weird now.

7. Thought he had pneumonia from the start

Causing the hospital sojourn. They lied recently. He lied countless times in the past. It is what it is. The biography scrubbers are busy and the media will once more be complicit in buffing up a remembrance that bears no semblance to reality.

Supposedly a "nice" guy who wrote countless personal thank you notes and who authored into our political rhythms the most nasty of tactics along with eluding any responsibility for horrendous actions like Iran Contra just for one.

A facile, yet empty personage ultimately. Obviously no fan here. Just leave, already.
