HuffPo has a lengthy piece on GW Bush, but this Moment of Idiocy caught my eye:
I asked Bush what he thought of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who has put his reputation on the line with the immigration bill and is seen as a likely frontrunner if he seeks the GOP nomination for president in 2016. Bush, who has said he wants his brother Jeb, the former Florida governor, to run, didn't have a lot to say about Rubio.
"Rubio's articulate. I met him once, maybe twice. My brother likes him, so I like him," Bush said.
He likes articulate people. How ironic.
So now Jebby (who doesn't agree with his mother) is Bush's brain? Well, clearly W can't think for himself ::coughCheneyRovecough:: which, of course, does require a brain, so his reliance on others is understandable.
By the way, my brother likes guns. I don't. My sister-in-law likes cigarettes. I don't. And they're both articulate, so I like them.
Then there was this:
"I don't long for [fame]. Nor do I long for power. I've come to realize that power can be corrosive if you've had it for too long," Bush said. "It can dim your vision. And so I came to the conclusion that, you know, I don't long for fame. And really, gonna shy away from it. Not shy away from it. Avoid it. I'm not very shy. Avoid it."
As for power being corrosive, he should know.
And if anyone is an expert on being dim, it's GW Bush.
