After more than a month in hospital battling bronchitis, former US president George H.W.

Hope with prayer that President Bush recovers and he gets to hold that new great grand-baby.

I hope he makes a full recovery but I have been fearing this for a couple weeks now.

It is not uncommon for the elderly to will themselves to survive through the holidays only to fade fast afterwards.

I hope I am wrong but I fear I am not

“Full Recovery”, in my opinion, is being allowed to pass with both respect and dignity.

We all should be allowed to expect this respect… and dignity.

And, we all shall pass.

Give the man and his family the room (and grace) to privately mourn.

H W was a mature, respectable, and competent President and his long and honorable career serving his country has been matched by very few. I wish him and his family well in a worrisome time.

Steve, I have not often agreed with your views on matters politic, but I completely agree with your (well-stated) sentiment here.

H W was a mature, respectable, and competent President and his long and honorable career serving his country has been matched by very few. I wish him and his family well in a worrisome time.

I also concur with this. The first vote I ever cast for president was for George HW Bush, and I still have great respect for the man.

What Ohio said. The elder Bush was the last good GOP president, and I firmly believe his pragmatic policies set the ground for much of the good times that happened during Clinton’s administration while dealing with a war and a recession. He sacrificed his own presidency in order to tackle our debt and financial issues. A great man, and very under appreciated I feel.

This is from a recent Huffington Post… May it be so…

An aide to former President George H.W. Bush, who remains in intensive care after being hospitalized for a cough stemming from bronchitis, requested Thursday that Bush friends and family “please put the harps back in the closet.”
