Today I watched an interview that took place on 2013 with Jay Leno and George and Laura Bush.
You know, we haven’t given President GW enough credit for not criticizing Obama during Obama’s presidency. Nice to see this side of Bush. I am not sure with what attitude people will be watching this interview, but I did not watch this as a young man judging the past political iniquities of a ruling man, (since no ruling men are politically omniscient). In watching this video without political bias, I found myself enjoying the interview, a lot.
Laura Bush is lovely and Jay Leno does a great job leading and pacing the conversation. And ya know, Bush is not a bad painter. He actually paints a portrait of Leno and gives it to him on the show. I guess I found myself enjoying the interview because I didn’t watch it with a “politically critical eye”. I just watched Bush, for the first time, as a regular guy who had an extremely tough job.
