George W. Bush Issues a Mea Culpa for the Crap Economy, Being Unprepared for War And Losing It for the GOP
This is not a joke.
Our lame duck president, George W. Bush, sat down with ABC's Charlie Gibson Monday and showed that he doesn't totally have his head up his ass.
W on Iraq:
"I think I was unprepared for war. In other words, I didn't campaign and say, 'Please vote for me, I'll be able to handle an attack. In other words, I didn't anticipate war. Presidents — one of the things about the modern presidency is that the unexpected will happen." He also says that the use of incorrect intelligence for warmongering, i.e. that Iraqi President Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction, is the "biggest regret of all the presidency."
W on the economy and government bail out:
"I'm sorry it's happening, of course. Obviously I don't like the idea of people losing jobs, or being worried about their 401(k)s. On the other hand, the American people got to know that we will safeguard the system. I mean, we're in. And if we need to be in more, we will."
And, acknowledging that he effed things up for the Republicans:
"And I'm sure some people voted for Barack Obama because of me. I think most people voted for Barack Obama because they decided they wanted him to be in their living room for the next four years explaining policy."
This W interview is definitely a must see!!!
