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
