Ex-President George H.W. Bush Hospitalized Over Christmas


By Jonathan D. Salant - Dec 24, 2012 7:05 PM GMT-0400

Former President George H.W. Bush won’t be home for Christmas, remaining in the hospital because of a fever. Plans to send the 88-year-old to his Houston home for the holidays were put on hold after he developed the fever. Bush was hospitalized Nov. 23 with bronchitis. No date has been set for his discharge.

“We were hoping to get him out but he’s just got a few setbacks that they think they’ve got a handle on,” said his spokesman, Jim McGrath. “Doctors express confidence that they have the situation under control and are cautiously optimistic going forward.”

Bush had a lingering cough and remained in the hospital to improve his strength. Then came some “low-energy days” and the fever, McGrath said.

“It’s been one thing after another,” McGrath said. “He’s just had a couple of steps backward.”
Bush is the nation’s 41st president and father of the 43rd president, George W. Bush.

4. He would be better off at home, less hospital germs to sicken him. Be less expensive too.

I'm sure their insurance covers 24/7Nurses and home Doctor visits.

6. BUSH I

 

This guy carried reagan and this was his crime.

I never voted for this guy and I am so happy when he was voted out of office to end 12 years of rotten GOP rule.

When the bush croaks the GOP will lose another of their kind.

8. We all die

I can't bring myself to feel anything empathetic for him. I believe he did a lot of evil in his life. Head of the CIA, the Carlyle Group, helping steal the 2000 elections, and things we'll hear about in 20 years from now. The entire family starting with Prescott Bush have symbolized the Shadow side of this country. The underbelly dark side.

9. Well put

I could not have expressed this as well, if I tried for a million years. He may be talking now, in some fevered delerium dream. Giving away the family secrets. The country secrets and the CIA secrets.
