To Conservatives he’s too hot! (That Socialist!) To the Liberals he’s too cold! (Gays want more love!) If you’re a moderate you’re still wondering if he can fix this economy. For the 60 percent who love President Obama — he’s just right.
Unless you’re George W. Bush.
“I told you I’m not going to criticize my successor,” he said. “I’ll just tell you that there are people at Gitmo that will kill American people at a drop of a hat and I don’t believe that persuasion isn’t going to work. Therapy isn’t going to cause terrorists to change their mind.”
The critique extended to Obama’s domestic policy.
“Government does not create wealth,” Bush said. “The major role for the government is to create an environment where people take risks to expand the job rate in the United States.”
Asked during a question-and-answer session if he thought his successor’s policies were “socialist,” Bush began saying “depends on…” then stopped and concluded, “We’ll see.” (Huffington Post)
… Said the man who left office with the largest national debt ever, who grew the government larger than his predecessor (Homeland Security, anyone?), gave out no bid contracts, kicked off the bank bailouts, started a war under false pretenses, was in charge during the nightmare that was Hurricane Katrina and is generally not well received by anyone, even members of his own party. Yes. THAT GUY had something NEGATIVE to say.
Me thinks someone’s got themselves a case of the Dick Cheneys. Hey, Bushie! Shaddditup!
