George W. Bush Surfaces: VIDEO


George W. Bush is beginning to try and shape his legacy. The opening of his presidential library is today in Dallas. He did a Nightline segment last night in which he spoke about the recent bombings and their relationship with the terrorist attack that happened under his watch. He also spoke about his paintings (“It may reflect my precocious nature, me painting myself in a bathtub.") and encouraged his brother Jeb to run for President.

  1. Anyone here speak Bush? What word did he actually mean instead of "precocious"?

    When your presidency makes people nostalgic for the statesmanship and actual accomplishments of Richard Nixon (yes, he actually did some decent things as President), it is time to go deep into hiding and never emerge again.

    Go play with your golf clubs, George. The country is still trying to piece itself back together, and doesn't need you spouting gibberish.

  3. Well he needs to speak a lot and for a long time to shape his shamful legacy (it is also global legacy).

  4. The "shape of his legacy"? A scab on the history of America.

  6. "Precocious nature?" Does he even know what that means?

  7. Diane: "Do you have ONE WORD for the Republican Party?"

    Bush: "You will exist in the future".

  8. He's aged terribly

  9. Since his scope of knowledge is truly infantile, I think his use of the word "precocious" is quite appropriate.

  10. "Hey, Brother Jeb! If Dad can do it and I can do it, anybody can do it! Run, baby, run!

  11. His legacy is that of a war criminal who is opposed to democracy.

    He is the scum of the earth.

  12. *fingers in ears* La La La. Not listening. Now that I don't have to care what he says, I'm completely ignoring this moron.

  13. Another part of his legacy is that he has seriously damaged the US' reputation and influence on world affairs. In effect his presidency will guarantee a speedier emergence of the Chinese superpower.

  14. PRECOCIOUS? WTF! The Dumbest man since Reagan to inhabit the Oval Office and probably one of the four worst: Bush Jr, Reagan, Grant and Andrew Johnson.

  15. Obama authorizes the use of drones. At least Bush didn't do that.

  16. If only he'd channeled his "precocious nature" solely into painting instead of the presidency ...

  17. He needs to be sent a bill for the total costs of the 2 wars he got us into that he put on the countrys' credit card. I believe the most recnt estimates are around from $ 3-6 TRILLION dollars. That amount of money wasted would sure go a long ways towards dealing with the many, many issues that have surfaced since we started to end both wars.

  20. Adam (aka Rick/Jason/David Hearne), of course you, Towleroad's resident troll, would try to deflect attention to Obama. Republican trolls like you are THE WORST.

    Posted by: MateoM | Apr 25, 2013 10:42:25 AM

  21. Adam- Had the use of drones been perfected during his "regime"...he most CERTAINLY ordered them used. Are you kidding HE loves new gadgets.

    I cannot believe that $500 million was raised(wasted) to open this hall of mirrors. That money could have been so much better used...he might actually have a new codicil of his "legacy" if he applied it the the astronomical debt he left us with....nah..
    He would have done anything to get that monstronsity of waste erected in Dallas. Glad it is in Dallas. It seems appropriate given the politics in that city.That is why he "retired there, where he can still hear "hosannas" on a regular basis.
    Good riddance to the loser.

  22. Adam, bush did authorize a number of drone strikes in his last year-especially in Pakistan. True, Obama has vastly increased their use, but it's incorrect to say that bush never used them.

  23. Adam, you're not one of the smart Republicans are you? Bush started the drone policy.

  24. I'm still trying to figure out WTF he was trying to say with "precocious." Usually you can figure out what word he was going for by context, but not this time.

  25. We do owe him some thanks. He forced the hideous truths about Republicans to become visible to more people. Republicans continue to pay the price for his disastrous presidency. They can't embrace the future without disavowing almost every aspect of their past. It's a no win and they will continue to pay the price for decades, if they survive at all. Much appreciated, Georgie.
