Former President George H.W. Bush celebrated Christmas in a Texas hospital with his family Tuesday after a series of health setbacks that have delayed his release, his spokesman said.

The 88-year-old was first admitted to Methodist Hospital in Houston on Nov. 7 for bronchitis treatment and released on Nov. 19. But he was readmitted on Nov. 23 after his cough flared up again.

1. Prayers for his health. No one should have to spend Christmas in a hospital.

God bless him. Merry Christmas all!

and not lose their homes.

3. I wish him a speedy recovery

Hey, it's Christmas.

Bush, Dole, Kemp... I'm not saying I ever would have voted for them, but at least they were actually sane.
