    George Bush Interview- Hannity

    Did anybody watch the Bush Interview on Hannity?

    Please forgive me if this is in the wrong section. Not really sure where to put it. I was thinking political platforms, but in the interview Bush said that he is genuinely wanting just to talk about his father. It was as non-political as you can get.

    Here are some highlights:
    Both recent Presidents have written about their fathers. While Obama hardly ever knew his, Bush's father lived to see and praised his son becoming President.
    Bush has a deep loving relationship with his father.
    Bush 41 never wrote a memoir and his story is often overshadowed.
    Bush 41 refused to help Bush 43 on major decisions except in an effort to make him laugh, smile or feel loved.
    The Bush's don't think of themselves as a dynasty. Each man had different advisers, political beliefs, and were President during different times in History.
    The Bush's and the Clintons are actually quite friendly. Bush said that if/when Jeb beats Hilary. His friendship with Bill will remain in tact.
    Obama has great admiration for Bush 41. It is unknown if they talk regularly.
    Obama has only once called Bush 43 and that was after the Osama Bin Laden raid. He doesn't seek advice from other Presidents. Unlike, any other President.

    Another thing I noticed was how humbled Bush 43 was in this interview. I can detect most BS a mile away and I didn't see any of that in the interview. It is easy for me to point out if someone is just trying to sell me a book just to gain publicity, but he just wants to talk about his father. To anyone that would listen.

    He seemed reluctant to even answer specific questions about world events like ISIS. He said he was happy to stay out of the limelight because he doesn't like attacking people or the Presidency. He thinks the people have complete control over the electoral process, as proven by the recent Republican wave.

    Let me know if I have left anything out. Here is part of the interview. The longest I could find: Exclusive: George W. Bush on growing up in the Bush family | Hannity | Fox News

    Actually, Bush wasn't that bad of a guy until he became president. That's when he got conned by the Neocons. He wasn't a bad Governor for Texas, and was well known for reaching across party lines to get things done here. The best thing that Bush did while President was to kick the Neocons to the curb during that last part of his second term. But it was too late. The Neocons ruined any kind of a legacy that Bush might have had, and he will long be remembered as the President who started a war based on lies.

    Actually I don't think so. Most people now have a luke-warm feeling about Bush, but that might just be because Obama is dong bad now. The left wing nuts are being drowned out. Bush's legacy will remain intact, as long as he keeps to his message.

    We can agree to disagree on this. BTW, Bush was not the only President to lead us into a war based on lies. The Tonkin Gulf Resolution, signed by President Johnson, that got us mired in Vietnam, was based on an attack that never happened.

    From the parts I have read, Obama's book was not so much about his father as himself and his relationship to a father he never knew. Frankly it read to me like a great big elaborate advertisement saying "like me, like me, I do!"

    What emerges here, and I have been a fierce opponent of GWB's policies, is that Bush the Jr. choose to write about his father, as seen by a later president, rather than like most president who write their memoirs, sometimes for money like Nixon.

    He emerges here very much humble and real, this is a man that expects nothing, having been bashed so meanly by his opponents he is absent of bitterness, there is no attitude like "I am the ex - next president".

    I am also struck by his candor:

    "G.W. BUSH: And next thing I know, I'm marching into the store, apologizing to the store owner and returning these little -- pathetic little toy soldiers. And that was it. There was no yelling, screaming, haranguing. It was...

    HANNITY: Lesson taught.

    G.W. BUSH: Yes, lesson taught.

    HANNITY: And then you urinated in the hedges.

    G.W. BUSH: Yes, I did that, as well.

    HANNITY: And then you had a little too much to drink after a tennis match and knocked over a garbage -- you were a troublemaker.

    G.W. BUSH: Well, I was -- you know, I was testing his patience."
    ""You know, when we sell to other countries, even if they're allies -- you never know about an ally. An ally can turn."

    I've read Obama's book. Unlike most people haha. And towards the end there are two chapters about his father, him meeting him and visiting what he kept referring to as his home in Kenya. Not sure why he does that, but I think it might be the culture from growing up there he thought of it as his home then. If we were to ask him now, he would say something politically appeasing so maybe we have to wait until, 2022 to get any straight answer out of this guy.

    The rest of it, was a whole bunch of condescending racist BS that I could barely get through. Also the title Dreams from my Father is related to him meeting his father and being disappointed and let down. I think that's why Obama is not very close with much of his family and has one of the tightest circles in the history of the White House. He didn't have the advice of a fatherly figure. It was always his mother. Now Valerie and Michelle.

    This is a large factor in the African American community, and it's shocking why Obama does not ever talk about this, or helps the community out with this issue. It is left up to others to analyze Obama's disappointments with his father and why he has turned his back on the issue.

    Bush I did a pretty credible job as president. It's too bad he didn't get a second term. Bush II might have been a lot better for the country if he hadn't listened to the Neocons and their rattling of sabers. Unfortunately, his legacy will remain the war in Iraq, thanks to Cheney, Rumsfeld, and Wolfowitz.

    The Africans I know who live here revere family, a cousin is a brother or sister, and ancestry is not something you express disappointment over.
