In fact, instead of constantly bashing the 43rd president, Mr. Bush offered, perhaps Mr. Obama could learn something from him, especially when it comes to ignoring the Washington chatter. “This would break his heart, to get advice that applies some of the lessons of leadership my brother learned, because he apparently likes to act like he’s still campaigning, and he likes to blame George’s administration for everything,” Mr. Bush said, dangling a ketchup-soaked French fry. “But he really seems like he’s getting caught up in what people are writing about him.”
Lets remember that "Mr. Bush" here refers to Jeb, since GW has not (and according to Jeb, will not) speak out against what is being said about him.
Lets also remember that (a)Obama has been in office for over 18 months and (b) not everything that's wrong happened under the Bush administrations and (c)the Congress are the ones who have put us in the economic state we are in, not the Presidents for the most part.You know this is the best sum up of Obama yet:
“By and large, I think the president, instead of being a 21st-century leader, is Hubert Humphrey on steroids,” Mr. Bush said. “I don’t think there’s much newness in spending more money as the solution to every problem.”That would really explain why I have always felt an intense dislike for the fellow from the moment I first heard his standing on things. I always thought it was because he was to the Left of Wellstone ... who, lets face it, was to the Left (in a whacky way) to Humphrey too.
