OK, just for the record: I do not hate George W. Bush. I’ve met him a couple of times. He’s a friendly guy, wouldn’t hesitate to have a beer with him.

No, I do not hate George W. Bush. But I still disagree with most of his policies, I still think he was a mediocre president — and I’m not going to change my mind just because he’s out there trying to sell a self-serving book.

No matter what smiley face he tries to put on his presidency, this is still the same man …

Who turned a huge budget surplus into a record deficit in order to give millionaires and multimillionaires an unearned tax cut;

who presided over the biggest expansion of federal government since FDR, without paying for it;

whose economic policies put this country in a tailspin and destroyed the life savings of millions of Americans;

who told a pack of lies in order to build support for his invasion of Iraq; and …

who put John Roberts and Samuel Alito on the Supreme Court.

Forget all the hype about George Bush’s new book. It doesn’t change a thing. He’s still the worse and least successful president of our lifetime.
