Is Bush snr still high from invading Iraq?

He is in bucolic retirement whilst coaching Jeb

I suspect Bush snr is not responsible for the chaotic mess in Iraq. Inability to see past ethnic divisions and masses of uneducated populace did for them

No, I live above Sunset Plaza, it's a little house I rent and it's a little rundown but has a beautiful view, what about you?

I can think of far worse personal habits which originate in the mouth that one could be offended about - smoking and spitting for starters. Personally, I would have thought that the Chinese would have been more offended by his political stance.
(mostly harmless)

Gum chewing offends Chinese! So no-one is offended by both children and adults spitting, peeing and
poo-ing in the street! No-one is offended when someone turns to sneezes, or coughs over you whilst on the train, bus, metro, worst still enclosed in a plane or elevator. No-one is offended when others are spitting or clearing their chest when sitting in a restaurant. Yeah sure ever so polite nation.
