George W. Bush is back, with his autobiography, “Decision Points,” in hand. His performance in an interview with Matt Lauer, a portion of which you can see below, is getting some dismissive reviews, of course, from journalists who never liked him anyway and seemed shocked that he thinks he did a good job as president.
Bush says he hope history will judge him well, but remarks that by the time it does, he will be dead.
Well, the odds are stacked against him on both counts.
The people who write the last draft of history – the historians – have the same liberal leanings of the people who write the first – reporters.
And given the role of genetics in longevity, Bush, with two octagenarian parents, might just be around for some of the latter drafts.
