    I was happy to read about this earlier today and see how he and Cheney are complete opposites right now.
    Or maybe because he is in no position to critisize anybody

    Honestly I think Bush just wants to fade away for a while.

    Bush has been in the spotlight for so many years and I would imagine that takes a toll on anyone.

    Whether he is remaining silent about Obama out of respect for the incoming president or some other reason, it is the right thing to do IMO.

    I will say this right now - Thank you, Mr. President, for choosing to put partisan politics aside, and for choosing the well being of America over hackery. Rush Limbaugh could learn a thing or 100 from you. If you had been like this during your presidency, instead of the "my way or the highway" approach you ended up taking, I believe things would be much different now. But hindsight is 20/20, so I will end this post in a very simple way, by saying "Well done". And yes, you ARE a patriot, Mr. President.

    Article is here.
    This part of the post left me scratching my head. Are you seriously suggesting that a sitting president facing stiff opposition from his opponents, as well as crises around the world, should behave in the same manner as former presidents who are traveling on speaking tours and raising money for his library and charities?

    Except we aren't suffering, we are making plans to counter the personal damage that the current government setup, we are laughing our asses off when Obama voters are shaking their heads and realizing what "change" means.

    Never mind that even if GWB HAD put 'partisan politics' aside, the Democrats would not have followed suit.

    And exactly how do you reach that conclusion? That's a pretty sweeping indictment of "democrats."

    I'm pretty sure he was talking about the clear with us or against us stance the administration took. If you didn't vote Republican. You were helping the terrorists.

    That's what former presidential tradition dictates and is a mark of class, so I agree with it.

    I will say this right now - Thank you, Mr. President, for choosing to put partisan politics aside, and for choosing the well being of America over hackery. Rush Limbaugh could learn a thing or 100 from you.

    Rush is an op-ed commentator, his opinion and voicing it is his job, so there is no equivalence to former president Bush's silence. Also, there are hints of the "my way or......." attitude coming from some aspects of the Obama administration as well, agree or disagree with a presidents politics, as long as what they are doing is legal and they are upholding the constitution(which is a lost art these days) then a decisive decision is doing their job in my opinion.

    I never see him backing things from either side of the aisle, mostly I see him siding with constitutional law and protocol of changing it.
