    Default George H W Bush in intensive care

    I've always had a bit of time for Bush # 41, he fought bravely in the Pacific and served his country both in military and civil life. He also made money in his own right in the oil industry.
    He understood international relations and is the anithesis of the Tea Party loons who have destroyed the GOP.

    Sadly he's in ICU in Houston. Obama has been notified of his condition which is code for Bush being gravely ill.

    I hope he pulls through.

    I really hope the MODS are awake and present. This could get messy
    Stand there in silence, look up to the sky and remember how brave they were.

    Unlike his son, I have great respect for this man for standing up to Israel for a while by holding up funds for the resettlement of Soviet Jews in Israel. He tried to pressure them to stop the settlements but failed. But it was very brave given the all-powerful nature of AIPAC. He also saved Panama from narco-statehood by deposing its dictator Noriega. I wish him a speedy recovery. The last of the reasonable Republicans. You know - the ones that didn't talk like they had a direct-line to God or were fulfilling Old Testament prophesy with the stroke of a pen. The ones that didn't hate gays.

    This is President 41 a moderate. Not his son President 43.

    the use of the word setbacks and appraising Obama of Bush's condition is what makes me fear the worst.

    A man who served honourably as Vice President to Reagan and a man who governed as president well. Despite my admiration for clinton I still wonder why he didn't get a 2nd term, despite a tiny recession.
