'He brought joy and laughter to millions': George W. Bush impersonator dies 'of natural causes' aged 48 Steve Bridges found dead in his Los Angeles, California home after dying of suspected natural causes Appeared alongside Bush at the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner in 2006 Also known for impressions of presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton

Comic actor and impersonator Steve Bridges, who was best known for his impressions of President George W. Bush, has died aged 48.

The comedian, who also portrayed presidents Clinton and Obama with the help of prosthetics, was found dead at his Los Angeles home on Saturday. It is believed Bridges died of natural causes. An autopsy is scheduled, but the Los Angeles County coroner's office said foul play was not suspected.

Bridges, who was a regular on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, began doing impersonations as a child, starting with the Three Stooges. 'Anything I saw on TV, I imitated,' he told Larry King in a CNN interview in 2006.

He had voice coaching and acting classes growing up in Los Angeles, and caught the public's eye with his impressions of Al Gore and Clinton. In 2003, he was invited to the White House to meet President Bush in the Oval Office.

Lets see he impersonated Clinton, Bush and Obama.

Bush isn’t known for any killings.

Even if some crusading reporter uncovered evidence that the Obama mob was behind these "deaths from natural causes", the charges would go nowhere and the MSM would not report it.

Remember when the RNC gave him the goat’s hook and yanked him off stage?

There’s an epidemic of death by natural causes going on with scarce mention in the “news”.

Now that you mention it, yes, but I remember him from the “Friends of Abe” summer confab two years ago. He brought down the house.

This is the second death reportedly by “natural causes” when, in fact, the media nor anyone else knows what the actual reason for expiration is. Autopsies have not yet been done or completed on Andrew Breitbart nor Steve Bridges. This type of reporting does nothing but raise suspicions on the part of discerning readers and followers of the American political scene.

Maybe this is WHY Dick Cheney had a pacemaker installed, maybe he didn’t really need it, but it works as a backup so they can poison him and his heart keeps on ticking like a Timex....

As much hate as the Left has for Mr. Cheney he should have been taken out YEARS ago....

Can you get a “preventative pacemaker” installed?

Look to see the list of “heart Attack” deaths grow in the next few weeks. Who is next? Newt? Beck? Palin? Savage? Bill Clinton? It sounds like we live in Putin’s Russia.

I wonder if he was the guy who played Bush in this rap song, “Curious G.W.B.”?

I think I saw this in an Email not to long ago. That was probably caused his death, like Britebart’s, naturally.

“Even if some crusading reporter uncovered evidence that the Obama mob was behind these ‘deaths from natural causes’...”, the reporter would probably die of natural causes!

Steve Bridges with W at the Correspondents Dinner...

Very good. Say what you will about the man, but George W. Bush has a great sense of humor. Something I'll miss.

Shame. He was a funny guy. His correspondent’s dinner performance with GWB was great.

Oh come on. James Q. Wilson, the great conservative legal/political thinker also died last week. Death happens, even for the young. Marc Levin, who has had some serious heart problems, lectured Brietbart about not taking care of his heart issues some time ago.
