Bush: Ex-Presidents Should Be Seen and Not Heard « The Washington Independent
Is it possible that former President George W. Bush might actually be getting wiser now that he’s retired?
Getting two standing ovations at his first speech since leaving office, former President George W. Bush said that if President Obama wants help, ‘he can pick up the phone and call.’ Otherwise, Bush said: ‘He deserves my silence.’ ‘There’s plenty of critics in the arena,’ Bush told a crowd on the friendly turf of Calgary, Canada. ‘I think it’s time for the ex-president to tap dance off the stage and let the current president have a go at solving the world’s problems. If he wants my help and I agree with him, I’ll give it.’
We can only hope former Vice President Dick Cheney learns to display such maturity in his twilight years.
