Somehow we suspect that the big fat pissed-off de facto Republican party leader named Rush Limbaugh probably pooped in his pants when he heard former president George W. Bush say he wants Barack Obama to succeed and that it’s “essential” to support the new leader.
After all, Bush and Limbaugh are supposed to be best buds, you know, BFFs. And of course Limbaugh has gone on record saying he “hopes Obama fails.”
In a speech he delivered yesterday in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, Bush declined to critique the Obama administration, saying the new president has enough critics and that he “deserves my silence.”
We’ll have to take him at face value because we’re not really sure what he means.
It’s also interesting because his former Vice President, Dick Cheney, recently told CNN’s John King that Obama’s decisions threatened America’s safety.
“I love my country a lot more than I love politics,” Bush said. “I think it is essential that he be helped in office.”
Even though he’s saying the right things, we find W’s comments very interesting because Obama often has to remind his critics that he inherited the economic mess we’re in from W. But as the former prez said, he loves his country more than he loves politics. Good Lord, are we witnessing a different George W. Bush emerge?
