HOUSTON (Reuters) - Former President George H. W. Bush is being treated at a Houston hospital for complications related to bronchitis and is in stable condition, the hospital said on Thursday.

"President Bush has been in and out of The Methodist Hospital in the Texas Medical Center being treated for complications related to his bronchitis," Bush's office said in a statement released by the hospital. "He is in stable condition, and is expected to be released within the next 72 hours."

The Houston Chronicle reported Thursday that Bush, 88, has been in the hospital for a week.

Bush, a Republican and the 41st president, took office in 1989 and served one term in the White House.

The father of former President George W. Bush, he also served as a congressman, U.N. ambassador, envoy to China, CIA director and was vice president for two terms under Ronald Reagan.

As president, Bush routed Iraq after Saddam Hussein invaded Kuwait in 1990 and his approval ratings soared to the 90 percent range. But just 20 months later he was defeated in his re-election bid by Democrat Bill Clinton.

Get him in your death pool kids. I'll be shocked if he makes it to 2014.

Why would they have a wing for horses in a hospital? Seems awfully unsanitary.

All right, feel free to click it. I deserve it...

Read...my...post...no new posts about how he didn't take shit from liberals and could be depended on to lose to Clinton (thanks to Perot).

Edit: Liddy kinda went where I was going somewhat...oh well.

And of course the left is full of nothing but good wishes for the guy.
Oh stop. Leave the politics out of it, the dude is closer to death than Carter is and I doubt anyone will have anything nice to see about that guy when he finally buys the farm.

All of the polling showed that perot took equally from both sides.

I must have had a stroke with this post, insert "the right will have anything nice to say" in the middle there. Hmm...

One of the nicest guys I've ever met. Real genuine man. It's heartbreaking to see him in this condition.

The documentary on HBO about him was pretty sad as well.

When he was 20 he went swimming and had to be rescued by the Navy.
