STEVE BRIDGES 1963-2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Steve Bridges. His passing comes as a shock to all of us. The cause of death is not known at this time, but we will publish more information as it becomes available. Steve brought joy and laughter to millions and was a great inspiration to all who knew him. He will be sadly missed. Our prayers go to his family at this time.

-----------

Steve Bridges imitated George Bush on the Jay Leno Show often during the eight years Bush was President. His make up and imitation were virtual Bush.

His newest imitation is of President Obama. The transition is incredible, however, the Administration has tried to put a stop to Bridges' act because Obama has made it known that he is deeply offended. You've probably never saw him on Leno during Obama's presidency, but you saw him all the time during the Bush years.

I actually met Steve back when he was doing Bush. He's a real nice, Christian, conservative guy. Here's his Obama impersonations.

I've been shocked twice in less than a week. Andrew Breitbart at 43 and now this guy at 48- both in LA. RIP Steve.

Oh no - he was so good at his craft. Another sad day. Andrew Breitbart, Davy Jones and now Bridges. Why do the good ones have to go so early in life?

I read somewhere a couple months back how Obama “was offended” by his impersonation.

Two months later he’s dead. Weird.

Well, the Chicago mafia is alive and well.

Is this what is going to be happening now? Make fun of or go after obama and die? Makes me wonder.

Is this a warning to Barack, or was the impersonation so good that the lightning bolt missed the intended target?

Mel must have had a crystal ball.

There is something very wrong going on here. Make fun of bambi and die. He no longer wants people to get in our faces, he just plain wants them dead so we will all live in fear. The scarecrow in the WH truly doesn’t have a brain.

Cannot forget Ronny Montrose.

IMHO, anyone who darers to disagree with Outstanding Leader gets knocked off ! Of course many people anymore are so thinned skinned withe no or little sense of humoer and of course they select thin skinned people for leadership especailly for POTUS.

Geez I remember that appearance at the Correspondent’s Dinner.

Both men were very funny. Bush is a class act and was a good sport.
Not like the weenie in the White House now.

That shows you the difference between a real man and President verse BHO. Bush invites the guy to do a bit together and Obama is offended.

Who has the self confidence issue?...

LOL

Does anyone remember the thinly veiled threats lodge by Missouri gov’t officials when it was Candidate Obama in 2008 towards those who spoke against him ? These were more serious charges than slander.

Let me guess.. the L.A. coroner will conduct this autopsy as well? As I said after Breitbart passed, if the regime had anything to do with it, the findings have already been dictated to that coroner`s office.

Bush loved Bridges` sendups of him and appeared side by side with him... meanwhile the thin-skinned candy-assed poseur finds himself “highly offended” when he gets the same treatment.

Obama is nowhere near the man Bush is.

RIP, Steve Bridges. ... thank you for the laughs.

48 is just too damn young.

My mom, the best mother in the world, died of cancer at 56. I miss her dearly. It seems as if she gave her entire life to raising 6 of us brats.

Live every single day to it’s fullest, there may be “another time”, no next year, no next month.... no tomorrow.

That was a good one and BUSH had a sense of humor. Unlike Bridges impersnation of Obama, that one is even funnier, based on fact. lol

Whoa... First I heard about Montrose. I was away at college in the early ‘70s and we had Montrose albums on the turntable often. Another icon of my youth bites the dust. Man, I am getting old. RIP, Montrose.

Has someone started an Obamacide or Chicagocide list yet? Sounds like one needs to be started to track the growing list of victims much like the Arkancide list back during Slick Willie's reign. If not, here's a start:

1. Andrew Breitbart
2. Steve Bridges
3. ?

Obama and dems are powerful thin-skinned bullies. Maybe dangerous bullies.

How soon until the New York Times comes to their defense against the powerless who dare to ask questions of the liberal establishment?? waiting... waiting... waiting.

All those homos in Chicago, and that guy in Chicago who supposedly ate tons of aspirin and died in some other horrible way. And the Chicago guy who shot himself by the river, supposedly. Both of the them had Rezko connections. Which means 0bummer connections.

Oh, and that woman in DC whose husband was some kind of high up liason between the WH and Congress, and she was a muckety muck in some “green energy” crap, whose car burned up in the garage on some kind of big day for the green energy corp or whatever it was.

Jack Wheeler’s death has never been solved either.
