    Former President George H.W. Bush is in intensive care with a blood infection. He buried his beloved wife Barbara on Saturday after 73 years of marriage. From CNN:

    “President Bush was admitted to the Houston Methodist Hospital yesterday morning after contracting an infection that spread to his blood. He is responding to treatments and appears to be recovering. We will issue additional updates as events warrant,” spokesman Jim McGrath said in a statement.

    Bush was admitted to the hospital on Sunday morning, he was suffering from an infection that led to sepsis, which can be life-threatening, according to a source close to the former President. He was in critical condition, the source said.

    The source told CNN that “Bush’s blood pressure kept dropping and a couple of times there was serious concern about whether he was going to come through, but that he had been stabilized.”

    Bush stayed by Barbara’s side and held her hand all day when she passed away.

    Last April, Bush stayed in a hospital for two weeks due to pneumonia. In early 2017, he was in the hospital for pneumonia as well for 16 days and needed a ventilator in the ICU.

    Bush served as a congressman, CIA director, and vice president under President Ronald Reagan from 1981 to 1989. He served as president from 1989 to 1993.

      Used to work in DC and live in suburbs – traffic occasionally get messed up whenever Sexret Service convoys had to secure a route – came with the territory, unfortunately. Didn’t mind too much – especially as normal DC traffic was often messed up anyway and the then presidents (Carter, then Reagan) both had reputations as normal, nice people when interacting with the public.

      Bush Sr., (even Jr.) as well. Clinton’s…. Not so much. Probably why so many press outlets jumped on the $200 haircut shut down LAX story with both feet.

      Yup, I know already know snopes says the story was fake. But – snopes pro Lib bias set aside, a LOT of friendly to Libs press ran the story. The Clinton’s had recently fired the WH travel office to turn what had always been a smoothly running non-partisan function into a patronage prize for a relation who had some teething problems with taking over. Pissing off the press who LIKED the nice, professional guys and gals who saw to it that there were few or no snafus when the press traveled with the WH folks.

      Then to put the lipstick on the pig, the WH (cough, Hill, cough) illegally back-dated docs on opening an investigation to try to make it look like the firings were for just cause, instead of patronage. The investigation into the investigation never proved WHO back-dated the docs, but it did prove that they WERE back-dated. And the list of possibles was pretty small.

      There’s more than one reason Hillary had such high negatives. The fact that she and her husband have a looooong history of getting away with mistreating folks and shady shenanigans had. IMHO, a lot more to do with her recent electoral defeat than any fakenews conspiracy by “they” or “them”.
