GEORGE W. BUSH: This Is Why I Refuse To Criticize Obama

Former President George W. Bush has a simple explanation for why he almost never criticizes his successor: He feels it undermines the office of the presidency.

In an interview that aired Thursday night on Fox News' "Hannity," Bush insisted he would not attack President Barack Obama even though he continued to have strong opinions about national politics.

"I don't think it's good for the country to have a former president undermine a current president; I think it's bad for the presidency for that matter," Bush said, according to video posted by Mediaite.

Bush, who is promoting his book about his father (former President George H.W. Bush), "41: A Portrait of My Father," also said he had no interest in generating headlines for himself after serving in the country's highest office for eight years.

"Secondly, I really have had all the fame I want," he added. "I really don't long for publicity. And the truth the matter is in order for me to generate publicity ... I'd have to either attack the Republican Party, which I don't want to do, or attack the president, which I don't want to do. And so I'm perfectly content to be out of the limelight."

Though Bush has avoided criticizing the Obama administration, the same can't be said for his former vice president, ####### Cheney, who has repeatedly skewered Obama. Among other things, Cheney called Obama the "worst president of my lifetime."

The right wing nutswingers are avoiding this one like Ebola. :rofl:

I'm sure the usual suspects are completely confused by this statement from the original Preznit and have called a top secret meeting.

It was pretty much standard SOP until that idiot Jimmy Carter started doing it. Nothing really news here , it's standard protocol

I agree with you on this one. IMHO he was a terrible president but he has, so far, been quite a class act of a former POTUS.

I have a lot of respect for Bush because he has gone low key since he left office. He's not throwing stones at every opportunity. Good for him to sticking to his guns.

It's a shame that Obama's administration and current followers opts to blame so many things on G-Dub.

I think that Obama owns his Presidency, good and bad. There's always some carryover from the previous administration, but there are some key shortfalls that are all his. Like this supposed immigration reform BS. A slap in the face to all of here at VJ and to every legal immigrant.
