Spokesman: George H.W. Bush in intensive care

Source: Boston.com

HOUSTON (AP) — A spokesman says former President George H.W. Bush is in the intensive care unit at a Houston hospital.

Bush’s spokesman, Jim McGrath, said Wednesday evening that the former president has been in the ICU at Methodist Hospital since Sunday.

No details were immediately provided. But earlier Wednesday, McGrath said a fever that kept Bush in the hospital over Christmas had gotten worse and that doctors had put him on a liquids-only diet.

A bronchitis-like cough initially brought Bush to the hospital on Nov. 23.

Some rich guys were standing to lose a lot of money, and they just happened to be rich guys that have something we want, whereas, the rich guy who started it was someone we didn't like, and wasn't a good friend of the Bush family.

when it was time to betray her mother by facilitating her father's liaisons with his mistress who was with him when he died. Eleanor found out after the fact. Double betrayal. One of the greatest First Lady's we've ever had and her children hated her -- thought she shouldn't be involved in the country's politics. Not ladylike don't 'cha know.

Aside from him being a giant asshole, he has lived a long, productive, and fruitful life. While I will not dance on his grave or wish him ill, I will not wish him recovery either. His time in existence is at an end, I see no reason to prolong it, especially when doing so comes at the expense of others.

Sure, he might not have been our choice and for the time he seemed like an ideologue but compared to most of the clowns running the GOP today we was downright moderate. Before that, though, he is a human being and I wish him well. if this is to be it for him, then I hope it's quick and peaceful. If not, then a speedy recovery. Whatever will be will be but it's not cool to wish him ill just because his opinions differ from yours. That's something conservatives do.

12. There is something intrinsically wrong..

 

with a person who sent thousands and thousands of people to an early grave over a long sustained career, dying comfortably in a warm bed while being well cared-for in his old age. There are so many thousands of people on five continents that were never given that chance thanks to his work over the years, to say nothing of the fine work of his spawn to keep the tradition of suffering and profits going, but perhaps that sort of thing isn't really polite to inconveniently remember at such at time.

45. I know if I had a cough and bronchitis, I would not be admitted to a hospital

I would end up sitting in a crowded Dr. office for up to an hour or more to see the doc
and be handed a script, then have drive across town to wait to have the script filled
then come home and take care of the animals and house while I waited for the meds to to work.
Because I earned all my money in the non-profit clinics, taking care of other people, and saving more than a few lives,
so there was no golden parachute when I retired.
THAT's what I know.
And I am not alone, either, am I?

52. rather like the English Princess who was hospitalized for morning sickness!!

 

the absurd largess of their class(*) raises a question--is this relative frivolity the reason why they have so many people killed and kept down in order to maintain their status?! Seems a slight bit out of balance, but that's how some like it.

You're not alone, and a life of such great work should not be considered as virtually irrelevant as it basically is at present. But again, that's how some like it--our subject above, for example.


(*)--the Bush's and the Clinton's, among others, representing American Royalty, or at least its near enough equivalent to their European cousins (--often a literal relation, now that I think about it)..

60. The English princess

as you refer to her, suffered from a extreme form of morning sickness that, untreated, is very serious and has actually killed other expectant mothers.

While I understand and agree with the underlying premise (that the wealthy often receive superior health care), this particular example isn't valid.

70. I suffered what "the English Princess" has, and its the most awful thing I ever went through

It is NOT morning sickness....Hyperemesis can kill you...I was hospitalized twice...threw up every 15 mins....couldnt even keep water down...the bile was coming up...collapsed due to dehydration...suffered electrolyte imbalance and heart issues due to this...had to have home nursing care for 7 1/2 months of my pregnancy with an IV giving me saline & potassium and a drug used by cancer patients for nausea during chemo called "Anzemet"....had a Pik IV inserted in 5th month because I had gotten down to 95 lbs (from my 130 lbs pre-pregnancy) in order to feed me intravenously....

When I see a post like yours, its a painful reminder of the suffering I went through and the insensitivity I had to know was out there, even from some family memebers of mine who made similar comments thinking I was being a primadonna and that millions of women get morning sickness and "deal with it"....

Hyperemesis is NOT morning sickness....

72. it has become painfully clear..

 

that sometimes, talking out of my ass is not always a great idea. some misfires, this being one of them.

However, while Her Highness had an army of orderlies and candystripers (does England have those, or is that just a Canadian thing? I adore the phrase, anyway), my newly pregnant friend was going through much the same suffering, but without insurance nobody really gave much a flying fuck. Well, I did, but I don't have "M.D." following my name, so the royal treatment seemed a bit obscene by contrast and that was the impression left.

New impressions have replaced that, so this was not altogether without purpose.

there was no way the old man could avoid WWII. Not with Kennedys, Roosevelts and a hosts of other celebrities and sons of the rich signing up.

But there was something odd about his being the only one who managed to escape that plane - as a rule pilots make sure the rest of the crew is on their way out before they make their escape.

34. Go look at some of the evil he did while at CIA and done under his reign

A truly evil son of a bitch, I cant believe how nice and chummy people here are being.

The man was in Dallas when JFK was shot, but would never talk about where he was or what he was doing. He was brunching in NYC with bin Laden's and other Saudis when the planes hit... He was behind Reagan while he was demented from alzheimers, pulling hte strings on Iran Contra, the hostages........

My only thought was if he died within the next 3 months politically it might change things and stall the negotiations to get all of this stuff done.

35. Read the Book: Family of Secrets

It's circumstantial evidence, but it sure raises a lot of questions.

You just can't believe the number of famous people that were in Dallas
the morning, or night before, or day of, November 22, 1963.

They gave us whitewash, conspiracy theories galore. None of them
intimated an internecine struggle. And the records have been slow
to be released. Congress slowed it down, the Church hearings.

Fifty years later, soon to be delayed some more.

the Bush family treason & murder go back to the 1930s at least. The uplifting part about this news is that he's not actually a vampire, so eventually his malignant family will die off.

His Iraq War and his incubator baby lie which helped get the American people behind the war is plenty bad enough. What the US did to Iraq during the following twenty years can never be forgiven.

91. Nurse Nayirah

http://www.prwatch.org/books/tsigfy10.html

How PR Sold the War in the Persian Gulf

Excerpted from Toxic Sludge Is Good For You, Chapter 10

"If I wanted to lie, or if we wanted to lie, if we wanted to exaggerate, I wouldn't use my daughter to do so. I could easily buy other people to do it."
--Saud Nasir al-Sabah, Kuwait's Ambassador to the United States and Canada

<snip>

At the Human Rights Caucus, however, Hill & Knowlton and Congressman Lantos had failed to reveal that Nayirah was a member of the Kuwaiti Royal Family. Her father, in fact, was Saud Nasir al-Sabah, Kuwait's Ambassador to the US, who sat listening in the hearing room during her testimony. The Caucus also failed to reveal that H&K vice-president Lauri Fitz-Pegado had coached Nayirah in what even the Kuwaitis' own investigators later confirmed was false testimony.

If Nayirah's outrageous lie had been exposed at the time it was told, it might have at least caused some in Congress and the news media to soberly reevaluate the extent to which they were being skillfully manipulated to support military action. Public opinion was deeply divided on Bush's Gulf policy. As late as December 1990, a New York Times/CBS News poll indicated that 48 percent of the American people wanted Bush to wait before taking any action if Iraq failed to withdraw from Kuwait by Bush's January 15 deadline.85 On January 12, the US Senate voted by a narrow, five-vote margin to support the Bush administration in a declaration of war. Given the narrowness of the vote, the babies-thrown-from-incubators story may have turned the tide in Bush's favor.

93. The babies-thrown-from-incubators story may have also helped dehumanize the Iraqis

which may have contributed to our gratuitous slaughter of them.

Congressman Lantos received a massive funeral after he died. It was far larger than any funeral for any congressman I've ever seen. With his terrible human rights and war promotion record, it was entirely undeserved.

plus all those cronies who ended up "coincidentally" in Dallas that day.

Hell, I was age 11 and I know where I was, sitting in 6th grade class when we got the news.

and was able to tell you the names of all the people in a crowded elevator he used at CIA to get to his office. Strange how with this rare capability, he was unable to remember where he was on the day JFK was assassinated. Strange to those in denial that is.

43. From my view

The first amendment of the Constitution says we the people have a right to free speech. However, as the Bush family and the American Congress specifically both Republicans and Democrats, and the whole of mainstream media helped to pass the Patriot Act give many the feeling that to be able to criticize our government implies one can get thrown in jail for whatever reason the president or those insiders see fit to take action on.

That is the basic feel one can have when thinking about the Bush legacy is a whole notion, a concept that is “facitical” yes as in fascist. Or the whole era of that war spectrum. Which is carried over to our present time is eclipsed by paid political historians in our paper news media and electromagnetic news cable media.

It was not until I read the book by Gerald Posner called “Secrets of The Kingdom” that revealed to me the striking and harsh reality that the Bush family likely held the door open for America to be ambushed by extremist Arabs. The Bush and Cheney families are very close business partners with the Bin Laden family for decades. Both families have made millions because of regular commerce and military commerce. But, to me that time lag as George Bush was telling a goat story, at an elementary school in Florida, between the first plane crashes to the second plane crash raises the flag of gilt. To me it was displaying a reason that George already knew, gave George W. Bush the reason needed to go to war.

There is so much about the war in Iraq and Afghanistan that is suppressed many can firmly believe the media, hate radio, and hate cable have no recourse but to lie for that simple reason they are complicit in the worst historical leadership dysfunction the world was ever been presented. Meaning the American leadership has no place in the world of the future because American leadership is basically a crime Congress, Senate, and Supreme Court in just this time span.

Yes those are very harsh words, but as I said before America will never have a golden era unless these crimes of torture and those up on top are be addressed and convicted for sacking the treasury. This is definitively the moment.

51. Death tax goes back in December 31st. Poppy doesn't have much time.

There are some wealthy family members who will make a boatload more money if he does not last till 2013, and some CIA retirees who would prefer he doesn't talk before he goes.

Fever makes for an innocuous media report and yet when he goes, it's suddenly expected. It also discredits a deathbed confession.

Have a good week Mr. President.

78. Bush family confident ex-president will be released soon (25 minutes ago)

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/12/27/bush-family-confident-ex-president-will-be-released-soon/

Houston (CNN) - The family of George H.W. Bush expressed confidence Thursday that the former president will be released shortly from an intensive care unit at a Houston hospital, where he is being treated for an elevated fever.

Bush family spokesman Jim McGrath said Bush was moved into the ICU so hospital personnel could more easily keep tabs on his condition, and that his family members were fully confident in the medical staff treating him. His most recent illness does not relate to his diagnosed Parkinsonism, McGrath said. On Wednesday, McGrath said Bush was in guarded condition and on a liquid diet. He added Thursday that the 41st president was being treated with Tylenol, among other things.

Doctors were initially treating Bush for bronchitis and a lingering cough. More recently he had been undergoing physical therapy in preparation for returning home, but developed a fever last week and began experiencing other complications that McGrath described as "a series of setbacks."

Bush was visited on Christmas by family members including his wife, Barbara, son Neil, daughter-in-law Maria and grandson Pierce. His daughter Doro visited Wednesday. At 88, Bush is the oldest living former president, edging out Jimmy Carter by about four months.
