    Strange that he's in ICU. If he's just got a fever that sounds a little extreme.

    This is not good. Hope he gets better soon.

    Poor guy. I'm sure I speak for this forum and the bulk of the American people when I wish him the best.

    You would do something kinder if you wished him a swift and painless journey.

    Sorry to see he's bad off. He's probably the classiest president we've had in my life time. If he's got to go, I pray it's quick and quiet.

    I didn't vote for him but I did respect him. When he raised taxes, he was classy about admitting his error and that made me respect him all the more.

    Now, everything is "blame the other guy - admit no failings".

    He has my best wishes.

    Re: George H W Bush in ICU in Houston

    The only reason I'm concerned about the President's being in the ICU is because this is new info. He'd been hospitalized early in November for what was described as a "persistent cough" from bronchitis, and then he went back later last month. I thought surely he'd be home for Christmas, but the fact that he wasn't and that now the info is that he's in ICU makes me wonder.

    But I wouldn't shuffle him off to Buffalo just yet; just a couple of years ago, he was skydiving just a couple of years ago to celebrate his 85th birthday!

    It's hard when you are older. Small things become big things. Especially a cold sliding into a pneumonia kind of thing. Hope he can pull through. He was just jumping out of airplanes what... a couple years ago?
