In recent news George W. Bush revealed in a C-SPAN interview with Brian Lamb he is done with politics. “I don’t want to go out and campaign for candidates, I don’t want to be viewed as a perpetual money-raiser ” stated Bush.
The former president added, “I think it’s bad for the country, frankly, to have a former president criticize his successor.” It’s tough enough to be president as it is without a former president undermining the current president.” Wise words from a former politician who knows his time is up.
This is the smartest move Bush has made since admitting the country was in a recession. I believe Bush has also seen the negative rhetoric coming from the Tea Party Express which hovers a dark cloud over the GOP or maybe he is just enjoying the life of a published author. In any case, it’s time to mend the damages he’s done and throwing politics out the window is a positive start.
Good luck Mr. Bush. Pa’lante!
