Bush Recalls ‘awesome’ Presidency: ‘I was famous and powerful’

What is he, a twelve-year-old or does he just have the vocabulary and mind of one?

Or did they mix up some quotes from a Justin Bieber interview?

I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that this man was president for 8 long years….

But we all know it’s true and we are still paying for the mistakes of those who put him in office….

From RawStory.com:

In a recent interview, George W. Bush fondly recalled his eight-year presidency as “awesome,” but said he wasn’t eager to get back into public life.

“I really don’t want to be in the public eye anymore,” the former president told the Hoover Institute’s Peter Robinson in an interview posted to YouTube on Tuesday.

“Look, eight years was awesome,” Bush explained. “You know, I was famous and I was powerful, but I have no desire for fame and power anymore.”

“I don’t want to undermine our president — whoever is president,” he added. “And a former president can do that. And I think it’s bad for the presidency itself.”

“I have found that life after the presidency is awesome.”

Bush left office in 2009 with a 22 percent approval rate, making him one of history’s least-liked presidents, according to CBS News. In all, 73 percent said they did not approve of the way he ran the country for eight years.
