Classy all the way, we miss you Mr. President:
Former President George W. Bush isn’t just talking with Matt Lauer next week – he’s sitting with Oprah Winfrey as well.
Besides the fact that it should be huge for book sales, the former President also talks about the current political climate, his picks for 2012 and more.
If anyone thought former Pres. Bush would follow in the footsteps of former Pres. Bill Clinton, who has been extremely active on the campaign trail this year – think again. “I’m through with politics,” Bush tells Oprah. “It’s hard for people to believe. I already said that. I am through.”
For that reason, he wasn’t even going to comment on politicians, left or right. When asked about Pres. Obama, he said, ” I want to treat my successor the way I’d like to have been treated. I don’t think it’s good for a former President to be out there opining on every darned issue. He’s got a plenty tough job.”
And how about Sarah Palin? “I am not a political pundit. I’m really not. And secondly, a lot is gonna happen between now and the nominating process. I have no clue.”
Well it took Clinton a few years before he got back into the game – maybe if Jeb Bush runs for office we’ll see George W. come out of political retirement.
