16. and even that statement - from him - is vacuous.
The first time he mentioned the 'who knows how historians will write about my presidency' type line that led into how other presidents were viewed differently by different historians over time came back around 2004 after a really bad press conference appearance where bush was asked if he had made any mistakes and he hemmed and hawed and basically said i can't think of any, but if you had given me that question ahead of time.... hehehe.... (ugh!)

Someone on his speech writing staff knew that he had to have a pat line of response to such questions in the future. Thus the now trite "historians view...." line is used. Right, we all believe he has read three books on George Washington (unless they were of the 'scholastic reader' type for 3rd graders). All part of his schtick. Totally vacuous.
