    Thumbs down George Bush reflects on his legacy, rewrites history

    (CNN) Reflecting on his eight-year presidency, President Bush said above all he would like to be remembered as a commander-in-chief who remained faithful to his values and "did not sell his soul in order to accommodate the political process."
    In an interview with his younger sister, Doro Bush Koch, the president said he was forced to make several difficult choices during his tenure in the White House, but added "I darn sure wasn't going to sacrifice [my] values."
    Excerpts of the interview, released by The White House [PDF]
    "I came to Washington with a set of values, and I'm leaving with the same set of values," Bush told Koch in an interview taped earlier this month that aired on National Public Radio Thursday.
    Bush also indicated he hopes his legacy is evaluated on success in the War in Iraq, America's efforts to combat AIDS, and the passage of Medicare legislation in 2003.
    "I'd like to be a President (known) as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace; that focused on individuals rather than process; that rallied people to serve their neighbor; that led an effort to help relieve HIV/AIDS and malaria on places like the continent of Africa; that helped elderly people get prescription drugs and Medicare as a part of the basic package; that came to Washington, D.C., with a set of political statements and worked as hard as I possibly could to do what I told the American people I would do," Bush said.
    In the same wide-ranging interview, Bush said it was a "fabulous experience to be president," but said he would not miss being in the daily spotlight.
    "This is a job which, you know, obviously had a lot of stress to it; it has a lot of pressure," he said.
    The interview was conducted for StoryCorps, a national oral history initiative.

    'Values' and 'soul' are two words that Dubya should never mention when talking about himself. At least he didn't say he was 'smart.'

    January 20th can't come soon enough.

    He's right.. he didn't sell his soul.. he sold the souls of 300+ million Americans.

    lol, so his sister married into the Koch family? too funny, the only value they know is the value of the almighty dollar, what a pox on humanity they are, what a match made in hell.

    Idiot. I guess his sister was the only one left willing to talk to him.
    What a delusional asshat he is (as if we didn't already know).

    Bush will be remembered as the worse president of the United States ever,who never was elected by the people. This man has no shame.

    My first instinct was to jump out the window.

    After thinking about this, in echoing previous sentiments about this character, I believe that he is a man that is in incredible denial, similar to someone that knows they are guilty of something too horrible to comprehend, and would rather live in a fantasy world that to them is so real they truly believe in it.

    I don't know if that is being delusional or schizoid or whatever. But again wouldn't it trouble any person, let alone dubya, to know that your actions and inactions led to so much pain, destruction, misery, and suffering (make no mistake about it, his very own deliberate actions and inactions did in fact lead to a lot of this suffering). How can any person live with this but to act like you are in a fantasyland?

    Maybe one day it will dawn on him what he did, and the revelation will utterly destroy his soul. But then again probably it won't. To the end he'll believe in his own fantasy world that he was a liberator and savior of america and the world.
