ALARM - Bush, indisposed without gravity in G8, maintains her program

HEILIGENDAMM (Germany) - president George W. Bush suffered Friday morning from a light indisposition of the stomach at the top of G8, but of nothing “low register”, and was to turn over “as quickly as possible” to its activities without changing its program, indicated the White House.

As long as he doesn’t barf on a Prime Minister or President or something...like Daddy did.

Not exactly a pleasant memory of International Relations.

Even so, I hope he’s okay. Between the travelling and the food, it’ll sure do a number on you.

Seriously, my Prayers for the President’s well-being. Maybe he can’t stomach some of the German food.

Probably happened after Putin told him to bend over so he could show him his new proposed location for the missile defense system!

Or, maybe, he had just learned that the treasonous Senate Amnesty Bill (S. 1348) got shelved!

Yesterday evening, the President enjoyed beer (maybe alc-free) at the summit. And this morning, he has already met with Sarkozy for one hour.

Stuff like this is usually not reported. I truly hope it is nothing serious. The President is a good man, even if he is misguided on some issues. Prayers.

Bummer. I’ve had the same problem recently, so I can empathize. Blech.

I will pray for his healing and that it is nothing more than a tummy virus.

Is it possible you´re over-reacting? All I proved is, that he was fine yesterday, and I added, that he has already met the French President today in his private rooms of the Hotel.

At most, it's interesting in a gossipy sort of way, because quitting drinking on his 40th birthday was part of his bio in 2000 (what pundits hall his "story"). I've seen photos and video from other events where he was sipping something with a yellowish color -- clearly not water, and looked like white wine to me. Early in his presidency, he made a point of toasting with water.

I've seen no indication, even in the most hard-left rumor mill, that Bush has gotten intoxicated at any point in his presidency. Certainly, few of our presidents have been tee-totallers. So again, it's a mildly interesting bit og gossip, of no real importance or relevance.

Hmmm...

Yeah. If he suddenly lost gravity, that would explain the illness. Why do you think they call the NASA training plane the "vomit comet"?

It was a non-alcoholic, but that still would IMO upset ones stomach if not accustomed to it.

Let’s hope that little “not serious” illness isn’t the same one that the Russian spy got. Or the Ukranian president, for that matter.

Prayers and well wishes for the President. Putting aside my recent, well deserved "frothing at the mouth".

Jeez, I don't trust any of those freaks over there, and the man just spent time with (ras)Putin. That could be dangerous to anyone's health.

“llness Sidelines Bush at G-8 Summit”
By JENNIFER LOVEN 06.08.07, 3:53 AM ET

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “President Bush came down with a stomach ailment Friday at the G-8 summit in Germany and is resting in his room.

“I’m not sure if it’s a stomach virus yet or something like that,” Dan Bartlett, counselor to the president told reporters. “He’s just not feeling well in his stomach,”

Although ill, the president did meet for an hour with French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but, as a precaution, the meeting took place in Bush’s private room.

“The president felt that they established a real personal rapport,” Bartlett said, adding that they discussed s myriad of issues, including Iran, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Darfur, trade and missile defense.

Dr. Richard Tubb, Bush’s doctor, is monitoring the president’s health, Bartlett said.”

“Counselor: Bush stomach ailment ‘not serious’”
Associated Press - June 8, 2007 4:33 AM ET

HEILIGENDAMM, Germany (AP) -

ARTICLE SNIPPET: “Dan Bartlett has told reporters Bush has an upset stomach but he’s not sure if it’s a virus or something the president ate that didn’t agree with him.

Aides say Bush was dressed and about to meet with France’s new president this morning when he realized how sick he felt. A doctor was called, Bush scrubbed an appearance at a summit session and France’s President Nicholas Sarkozy came to see him.

Bartlett says Bush is going ahead with a visit to Poland.”

Turned out his Daddy really was sick at the time. He had a hyper-thyroid condition and had his thyroid gland killed not long after that incident. It isn't very well known.

There was also some tin-foil stuff in there because his dog Millie developed the same symptoms (Graves Disease) around that time.
