When Bush Leaves Office

It looks like he will be living in Dallas.  Texas is a big state, and he already has a ranch, can’t he just move down there?

Here are a couple of things I found interesting in this article: 

  • But in an interview with a book author in the Oval Office one day last December, he daydreamed about the next phase of his life, when his time will be his own.First, Mr. Bush said, “I’ll give some speeches, just to replenish the ol’ coffers.” With assets that have been estimated as high as nearly $21 million, Mr. Bush added, “I don’t know what my dad gets — it’s more than 50-75” thousand dollars a speech, and “Clinton’s making a lot of money.”

    Then he said, “We’ll have a nice place in Dallas,” where he will be running what he called “a fantastic Freedom Institute” promoting democracy around the world. But he added, “I can just envision getting in the car, getting bored, going down to the ranch.” 

  • In response to Mr. Draper’s observance that Mr. Bush had nobody’s “shoulder to cry on,” the president said: “Of course I do, I’ve got God’s shoulder to cry on, and I cry a lot.” In what Mr. Draper interpreted as a reference to war casualties, Mr. Bush added, “I’ll bet I’ve shed more tears than you can count as president.”

    ” I can just envision getting in the car, getting bored, going down to the ranch” … doesn’t sound much different than how he operates now. He’s on a pace right now to have taken more vacation days than any president in history.

    I’ve read a few Administration neocons, as well as the President, are now stating they never intended on disbanding the Iraqi army. In a new book just out Bush says he isn’t sure why that was done. Looks like they preparing to dump a lot of the blame for this mess on Bremer.
