Fmr. President George W. Bush says he has left politics for good and has no plans to raise money or work for Republican candidates.
 “I don’t want to go out and campaign for candidates. I don’t want to be viewed as a perpetual money-raiser,” Bush said on C-span.

My own view is I think he’s right if you’re talking in terms of 500 years. I think it’s wrong if you’re talking in terms of 50 years. What has to happen is they have be, frankly, inbred. And, you just, that’s the only thing that’s going to do it, Rose.
Former president Richard Nixon • Talking on his just-released audio files about black people. Does that sound racist to you? Well, that’s because it’s pretty racist-sounding. It’s one line from 265 hours worth of tapes, and since we know you’re not going to dig through all of them, let this be the main message you take from these tapes: Nixon taped himself saying racist things. On tape. (And he says worse things abut Jews.) source (viafollow)

I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful and I think she’s very happy in Alaska — and I hope she’ll stay there.
Former First Lady Barbara Bush • Saying something basically designed to piss off Sarah Palin. Bush, most recently in the news for this strange number, was interviewed (along with her husband) by Larry King in an interview to air Monday. George the elder, for his part, likes some of the Tea Party’s ideas but is confused by what the party is and their plans ”to get Republicans in Congress to do something.” source (viafollow)

I thought about my meeting with Danny Pearl’s widow, who was pregnant with his son when he was murdered. I thought about the 2,971 people stolen from their families by al Qaeda on 9/11. And I thought about my duty to protect my country from another act of terror. ‘Damn right,’ I said.
George W. Bush • Explaining in his coming memoir, “Decision Points,” why he allowed the CIA to waterboard suspects being interrogated, specifically Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. While it’s clear from the quote that he thought the decision through, the off-the-cuffness of his response strikes us as a little, you know, stark. We appreciate Bush caring so much about the lives of Americans that he’s willing to waterboard a 9/11 suspect, but waterboarding is about half a step away from torture. In fact, depending on who you ask, lots of people consider it torture. Also in the book, Bush (who claims to be through with politics) compliments Obama’s political skills while criticizing those of John McCain. He is also keeping his nose out of the whole 2012 race out of respect for Obama. This is impressive restraint that he at times didn’t show in office, by the way. source (viafollow)
