How Former Presidents Conduct Themselves; George W. Bush Says He Avoids Criticizing Obama Out Of Respect For Presidency
The former president said that, though he follows politics and is “very aware of what’s going on,” he has no interest in generating headline for himself by bashing his successor.
“Secondly, I really have had all the fame I want,” he continued. “I really don’t long for publicity.
And the truth of the matter is in order for me to generate publicity I’d have to either attack the Republican Party, which I don’t want to do, or attack the president, which I don’t want to do. And so I’m perfectly content to be out of the limelight.”
Mr. Bush is currently making the media rounds to promote his new book, “41: A Portrait of My Father,” which he calls a “love story” about his dad, Former President George H.W. Bush.
