Last week, former President George W. Bush started giving interviews in anticipation of his memoir, Decision Points, which will be released tomorrow. So far, he’s said some pretty incredible things. A few highlights from his tour so far:
- W says he has no regrets about using waterboarding as a form of torture to retrieve information from suspects in the 9/11 bombing.
- He’s been touting a new tale of the formation of his pro-life beliefs, this one involving a fetus in a jar. You can’t make this stuff up. And remember, his wife Laura admitted in her book tour earlier this year that she’s pro-choice.
- He’s calling himself a “dissenting voice” in the decision to go to war with Iraq.
- Bush admits that he almost removed Dick Cheney from the 2004 ticket, as a way to prove that he was in charge.
- He admits that Kanye West’s comment that Bush didn’t care about black people in the aftermath of Katrina was a low-point of his presidency, and Kanye responds by saying he connects with George W.
Finally, some parting words from George: “Whatever the verdict on my presidency, I’m comfortable with the fact that I won’t be around to hear it,” he writes. “That’s a decision point only history will reach.”
