The 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, says he is tired of the spotlight and does not long for has had enough of fame and power.
“I don’t long for [fame]. Nor do I long for power,” Bush told The Huffington Post at his annual Warrior 100K bike race held at his Texas ranch. “I’ve come to realize that power can be corrosive if you’ve had it for too long. It can dim your vision.
“And so I came to the conclusion that, you know, I don’t long for fame. And really, gonna shy away from it. Not shy away from it. Avoid it. I’m not very shy. Avoid it.”
Considering he spearheaded two wars that left our country trillions of dollars in debt all while turning away from corruption on Wall Street that led to the worst economic collapse in the United States since The Great Depression, I can understand why he would want to avoid the spotlight.
Bush also gave his thoughts on his successor, President Barack Obama.
“I’m not surprised the president is having a difficult go,” Bush said. “It’s just amazing how history repeats itself.”
History doesn’t repeat itself; it’s just a continuation of the mess you left President Obama with, Mr. Bush. Clichés aren’t going to fix the problems in this country or let the people forget about the dastardly things you did!
I digress; we commend you, President Bush, for not continuing your terrorizing of the American political system, and we wish you the best as you ride off into the sunset.
