Former President George W. Bush Says It’s “ESSENTIAL” to Help Obama

In his first public speech since leaving the Presidency, George W. Bush says he wants President Obama to succeed.

Former President George W. Bush, making his first public speech since leaving office in January, says he wants Barack Obama to succeed and that it’s “essential” to support the new leader.

Bush declined to critique the Obama administration in Tuesday’s speech, saying the new president has enough critics and that he “deserves my silence.”

“I love my country a lot more than I love politics,” Bush said. “I think it is essential that he be helped in office.”

Bush also said he plans to write a book that will ask people to consider what they would do if they had to protect the United States as president. “It’s going to be (about) the 12 toughest decisions I had to make,” he said.

“I want people to understand what it was like to sit in the Oval Office and have them come in and say we have captured Khalid Sheik Mohammed, the mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks, the alleged killer of a guy named Danny Pearl because he was simply Jewish, and we think we have information on further attacks on the United States,” Bush said.

In the meantime, Bush Derangement Syndrome protesters lined up deep to protest the President’s speech.

Bush shows his class in wishing Obama well. But, never fear – Dick Cheney and Karl Rove are set to be the attack dogs for Bush and the GOP.

Politics is politics and why the LEFT continues to hound W.

  1. I think our country is heading in the wrong direction under the current administration and 42 czars. We are headed for a train wreck and I really think ‘president BHO is steering the wreck with the help of various anti-American ‘advisors’.
