Actually, We All Do
I refrained from making this joke yesterday, but it's too tempting:
Bush declined to critique the Obama administration in his first speech since leaving office in January. Former Vice President Dick Cheney has said that Obama's decisions threatened America's safety.
"I'm not going to spend my time criticizing him. There are plenty of critics in the arena," Bush said. "He deserves my silence."
At this point, given the criminal activities of your government and the catastrophic results, Mr. Bush, silence is probably the best policy across the board. If you wanted to STFU for the rest of your days on this planet few people would miss your dulcet tones.
Impossible to finish this post without highlighting the money quote:
Bush said that he doesn't know what he will do in the long term but that he will write a book that will ask people to consider what they would do if they had to protect the United States as president.
He said it will be fun to write and that "it's going to be (about) the 12 toughest decisions I had to make."
"I'm going to put people in my place, so when the history of this administration is written at least there's an authoritarian voice saying exactly what happened," Bush said.
Like I said, silence, Mr. Bush, silence. Although, the admission of authoritarianism at least shows a glimmer of honesty.
