"Anything I say is not to be critical of my successor. I didn't like it when my predecessors criticized me. He [President Clinton] never did, by the way. He was respectful. Can't say that for every one of them. And I didn't appreciate it, and I'm not going to do the same thing to [President Obama]. There's plenty of critics in American society. I think you heard a few. I know I did."
- former President George W. Bush
