Exit Stage Right


George W. Bush: "I'm done with politics, fundraising for GOP, campaigning and appearing on TV
"I don't want to go out and campaign for candidates," he said in an interview that will air on Sunday. "I don't want to be viewed as a perpetual money-raiser. In spite of the fact that I'm now on TV, I don't want to be on TV. I don't want to be on these talk shows, giving my opinion, second guessing the current President. I think it's bad for the country, frankly, to have a former president criticize his successor."

It's funny how only former Republican Presidents seem to think that way.

@ rickl-Republican Presidents are the only ones that are confident in themselves; they don't need to build themselves up by tearing others down.

And Republican Presidents are mature enough to know the game is over for them, and smart enough to know they don't ever want to play it again.

Agree with George. A former President should keep away from politics. And make few comments.

And the current President and his staff should refer to predecessors very rarely.

Playing dirty is the only game the Dems know. They were born that way, so why would we expect them to change after having the honor of serving in the highest elected office in the most free and generous nation in human history? I love that, no matter how dirty they play, they will never, EVER get credit for America's exceptionalism.
