President George H.W. Bush out to dinner Saturday night in Houston, first since hospitalization. #nbcnews #GHWBush

The former president was recently released from Methodist Hospital after a long stay, including some time in the intensive care unit.

Amen. Looking good, Mr. President!

Of course, Twitter has to weigh in as only it can:

Heh.

What a wonderful photo. Best wishes for your continued recovery, Mr. President!

    Mr. President, so happy to learn of your improvement.

  • Jasoturner

    Man, his son was such a mindless tool. What a shame. This guy was a good American.

    • Bob Khan

      That was very rude man, You do realize that Bush loves his Son very much and is proud of him for trying his best. You cannot insult one without insulting the entire family. That’s how we Texans roll.

    Meanwhile the bloodthirsty leftwingwackos are having conniptions. “How dare this guy still live? We want him dead” they say

    • Sons Thunder

      The Bloodthirsty LeftWingWackos? Aside from nutpicking some idiotic comments from a blog somewhere, do you honestly believe this is a sentiment held by a significant portion of the left?

      I can find plenty of similar comments regarding Hillary Clinton’s recent hospital stay. I tend to think it’s the work of a few trolls but don’t really believe those on the right are rooting for her death. Am I wrong?

      • Worship Dancer

        no but we would NOT mind seeing her BEHIND BARS WHERE SHE BELONGS.

        • Sons Thunder

          LOL – Well, that’s a different issue…

      • BeeKaaay

        I see. So those who are bloodthirsty and want him dead should not be criticized.

  • TitzyFritzensimmons

    What a lovely and patriotic gentleman he will always be. Glad you are better, Mr. President.

  • FATSAC

    I’ve seen that look before… I thought they said restaurant… that’s “The Men’s Club”

    Brings a whole new meaning to “Read my lips” :)

  • Bob Khan

    It’s comforting to see the President in good spirits. I hope both him and Barbara are enjoying time together back at home.

  • Bob Smooper

    That man is pure EVIL.
