Bush Coming Out of Retirement

Sunday on NPR, host Liane Hansen was celebrating her 20-year anniversary on the show. So, just like she did 20 years ago, she had senior news analyst Daniel Schorr on to talk about the four previous presidents who were living and the work they’re doing. At that time, the presidents were Nixon, Regan, Ford, and Carter. Today, they are Carter, both the elder and younger Bush, and Clinton. Here’s what Schorr had to say about George W. Bush:

HANSEN: And the most recent former president, George W. Bush, what’s he up to?

SCHORR: Well, George W. Bush in a recent interview said, “As president, I made calls as best I could and I didn’t sell my soul.” He also refers to himself, his new title he said is “retired guy.”

It looks like he’s coming out of retirement today to speak at SMU to kick off his public policy institute.
