Bush "just wants to be loved"
WASHINGTON With President Bush planning his library in Dallas, speculation has naturally grown that he and the first lady might end up moving back to the city where he built his pre-gubernatorial career.

Mr. Bush has made clear his disinterest in settling at the family compound in Kennebunkport, Maine, where he and his dad recently entertained Russian President Vladimir Putin.

As for the ranch in Crawford, it's pretty. And secluded. And it has all that brush that needs clearing, to keep a fellow busy in retirement. But it's a long commute to all the symposia and ceremonies that ex-presidents attend at their archives. Even so, the ranch sounds like the place Mr. Bush expects to call home.

"When it's all said and done, Ed, if you ever come down and visit the old, tired me down there in Crawford, I will be able to say I looked in the mirror and made decisions based upon principle, not based upon politics," Mr. Bush told a reporter Thursday, during his first news conference at the newly refurbished West Wing press briefing room...

"You know," Mr. Bush said, "I guess I'm like any other political figure everybody wants to be loved. Just, sometimes the decisions you make and the consequences don't enable you to be loved."

8. His best option is to seek reincarnation, and fast
trying to salvage things at this point would be a complete waste of time.

14. you know if he was a true believer he wouldn't be like he is
so the true believers should be able to see that for themselves, so my bet would be on the little man thinking he will be reincarnated and not be shipped off to Heaven

6. What a fucking Bozo!
He already knows he's screwed things up and his legacy is in the toilet so now he's lying to himself and wallowing in self pity. He is so unfit for office it's scary.
