For John, BLUF: Former Presidents should be seen and not heard. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Over at the Althouse blog we have a question, a thought problem.
"I know you're trying to subtly rope me in to the issues of the day. I refuse to be roped in."Remember, Professor Althouse voted for Senator and President Obama.
Said George W. Bush, handling questions about Syria in precisely the style that befits a former President, speaking publicly.
But what if President Obama were to privately consult with George Bush? This is something I've fantasized about. I imagine Obama talking about how much he understands now what Bush went through and how Bush is the one person in the world who understands what he's going through. I picture Bush supporting the younger man in a completely empathetic and patriotic way.
I like the fact that "W" has stayed out of the spotlight but has been doing good works in his post-presidential years. An fine example for all.
