Bush Pulls A Cheney
I’ve been praising George W. Bush for saying, unlike his former partner in crime, Dick Cheney, that Obama “deserves my silence.” It appears as though the former president has had a change of heart. In particular, Bush went after Obama on health care.
“There are a lot of ways to remedy the situation without nationalizing health care,” Mr. Bush said. “I worry about encouraging the government to replace the private sector when it comes to providing insurance for health care.”
Asked by the evening emcee at the 104th annual Manufacturer and Business Association meeting if he finds the new president’s policies “socialist,” Mr. Bush started — then stopped.
“I hear a lot of those words, but it depends on –” he said, breaking off. He later offered a more diplomatic assessment: “We’ll see.”
Other criticisms were implied, as when Bush insisted his administration’s actions on interrogation were within the law and when he claimed it would be the private sector rather than the government that rights the economy. But, then who started the bank bailouts?Click here for reuse options!
