Former President George W. Bush joked about his intelligence, said Dick Cheney is doing well following his fifth heart attack and took a shot at Jimmy Carter at a breakfast for the Bush-Cheney Alumni Association Friday morning. "This is going to come as quite a shock to people up here that I can write a book, much less read one," the former president said, according to Politico.Nice of W. to finally out against Jimmy "Worst President Ever" Carter's insane and reckless comments during his terms. Carter wasn't just an embarrassment as a President, but made himself into a jealous, prick for daring to criticize President Bush so openly. Then too, President Bush has shown a lot of class not responding to Barry as Obama continues to blame him for all the problems he promised to "change". Once again, Bush comes out on to here.
Mr. Bush is currently working on a memoir. He also reportedly told an audience of administration alumni that Cheney, who had planned to come to the meeting, was not able to attend following his recent heart attack. He said the former vice president is "feeling well" and "has a fierce constitution."
Added Mr. Bush: "I have no desire to see myself on television. I don't want to be a panel of formers instructing the currents on what to do...I'm trying to regain a sense of anonymity. I didn't like it when a certain former president -- and it wasn't 41 or 42 -- made my life miserable."
That appears to be a shot at former President Jimmy Carter (#39), who said back in 2006 that the Iraq war had been "a flat disaster" and that the Bush administration "and particularly the vice president and the secretary of defense have, I think, quite often deliberately misled the American people about the danger in Iraq to begin with, the causes for going to war in Iraq, and they have also misled the American people about what is happening in Iraq since we invaded."
Carter was also exceedingly critical of Cheney and called the Bush administration the "worst in history" from the perspective of its "adverse impact on the nation around the world," though he later walked back that comment as "maybe careless or misinterpreted."
