Scott Hennen interviewed George W. Bush and several points are made, but two are intriguing: the “Bush” tax cuts and the Bush fiscal policy. Video below.
1) Bush advised the GOP to stop calling his tax cuts, his tax cuts. G.W. fully understands that he is a lightening rod with Liberals, so in essence suggests we keep his name off of anything we want to get done.
2) When asked if he has regrets about the amount of money spent during his presidency, he says his fiscal policy was sound, compared it to Reagan’s and said it’s a hallmark of his administration. I think I would have asked him why he never vetoed the pork, or at least spoke often about it.
Hennen also asks the president if he regrets not defending himself more during his presidency. “Don’t the gloves have to come off?”
