Most of the civilized world is hoping for a speedy recovery by George H.W. Bush after his recent hospitalization. No so among a few sickos on Twitter who are actually hoping for the 41st president's demise.
In "Daily Download: Spotlight On The Media" journalists Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn take to task those wishing the former president ill. "George H.W. Bush wasn't even that polarizing a president. I think a lot of this is anger being vented at his son," says Kurtz.
In a separate "Daily Download" post Kurtz calls the Bush-hating tweets "beyond pathetic."
"So what did Bush do that was so terrible? He broke his read-my-lips pledge and cooperated with Democrats in raising taxes. He presided over the end of the Cold War. He liberated Kuwait by assembling an international coalition, though there is plenty to criticize in the way the Persian Gulf War was handled," Kurtz writes. "I guess this minority of hate-mongers must be disappointed that Bush senior seems to be rallying."
