George H.W. Bush Hospitalized Again But "Doing Fine"

Tyler Durden's picture

For the second time in four months, former President George H.W. Bush, 92, was readmitted to the hospital in Houston where he was treated earlier this year for pneumonia but "is going to be fine," his spokesman said on Tuesday.

His office issued the following statement:

"President George H. W. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest. It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved.  President Bush is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength."

“He is already well on the path to recovery and going home,” McGrath said.

The former president spent two weeks in Methodist  back in January with pneumonia. He was on a ventilator and in ICU but rallied, and had been doing fine. In February, Bush and wife Barbara, who was also hospitalized in January, took part in the pregame coin toss at the Super Bowl at NRG Stadium.

In March, the Bushes were honored by the Mensch International Foundation, for their service to others. Earlier this month, "41" was visited by former President Bill Clinton, who gave him a pair of colorful socks.

Was Clinton just delivering socks or was he there to orally deliver a message too confidential to write down.

Fucking spymaster. This seemingly mild-mannered bumbler was most likely involved in most of the intrigue of the last half of the 20th century, from the assassination of Kennedy to the attempted assassination of Reagan to 9/11.

Funny how these war criminals can laugh things off and live like Kings to a ripe old age despite being responsible for the blood soaked soil of many nations.

Yet, those ASU students will protest Trump. Where were they as Hillary murdered thousands of Libyans and Bush killed > million in Iraq?

Please, if there is anything good in the universe, put the world out of its misery and deliver us from evil.

And bury him face down in case he tries to dig his way out.

Trump takes the presidency, both houses of Congress and this bastard through his stooge Ryan is still trying to take Trump down.  Can't wait to enjoy the funeral.

I hope in his last days that SOB is sweating the possibility of burning in hell, forever.

Not this bastard. He's so evil he's looking forward to running his own wing of hell.

The three crimes Sam says, or at least it sure looks like it, and a few others, perhaps:

Bay of Pigs boondoggle


treasonous deal with Iran to hold hostages until Carter was gone

Vietnam heroin

JFK cover-up/sabatoging HSCA

incubator lies and slant drilling for first Iraq war


mentioned in Franklin cover-up

financial exploitation of Russia after Soviet breakdown? How else to word this?

S&L scandal, helped his son "lose" millions

I thought you were going to blurt out some major truth there about how GHWB was head of CIA when they murdered JFK.  Alas, it wasn't mean't to be.

BTW - I hear this old turd will be going the way of Rockefeller soon.. (Godspeed)

Nothing to worry about.

A bit of extra help crawling out of his old skin is all he needs

This is his second time w/pneumonia in 3 months.  Wonder what the Vegas odds are...gotta be pretty short

I wish him a speedy recovery, a healthy body and a really very long life, like 140 years or so..... that the mob can drag him through the streets of Washington, and deal with him in the old European style, but only after making him spill all that he knows of everything, especially what happened in Dallas on 22 Nov 1963 and what did he do to deserve position of the President of the USA.

They'll have to pin back his ears to pull it off.

"doing fine" as in the ghost of JFK sitting by his bedside. Are we beginning to perspire yet, George?

I was hoping this could be the second feel good story of the day.

"BUSH IS DEAD" would have been as great as "suspect in manhunt shoots himself."

You know when he dies, they're going to pickle his body just like Lenin and put him on permanent display in the Capital rotunda.

Why do all the most evil bastards just keep on ticking? You think God would send a lightning bolt, or the Devil would collect early on the contract.
