Bush: 'Clinton and I are buddies' By: Patrick Gavin November 14, 2010 08:21 PM EST Updated: November 15, 2010 08:04 AM EST
Despite their political differences, the Bush family has really taken to Bill Clinton. (Clinton has worked with both the 41st and 43rd presidents on humanitarian efforts.)
And CNN's Candy Crowley, during her Sunday interview with George W. Bush and his brother, Jeb, had a little fun with the relationship.
"Your father, 41, has said that he looks at Bill Clinton like another son," said Crowley. "So who's been the better brother, Jeb or Bill?"
"I knew that was coming," said Jeb.
"You did? Why didn't you warn me, Jeb?" said George W. Bush.
"We're fond of Bill Clinton," Jeb said. "He's - I tell you, he's been incredibly gracious to our dad. And if somebody is gracious to our father - he ingratiates himself to us. And we are grateful to Bill Clinton."
"Who'da thunk it?" said Crowley. "That's a pretty bipartisan - I mean, would have going into - I mean, you know, you're out there restoring honor to the White House and ? "
"Listen, Clinton and I are buddies," the former president said. "First of all, we're born one month apart. We're now members of the former presidents club. We have done speaking engagements together. And I generally like him."

not for me known this for a long time. they are all puppets of people like soros
My respect for the Bush family just took a hit.
Clinton is trailer trash, with no disrepect to those who live in trailers.
Com’on, Dubya. Please don’t make yourself look silly.
Nobody is a buddy of Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton is Bill Clinton’s buddy.
Uh, Jeb. Do you remember any of the 1992 campaign? Remember Clinton's dirty tricks squad spreading rumors that your dad had an affair to reduce the impact of the Clinton affair stories? Remember the Clinton whisper campaign that suggested Bush Sr. was an incompetent pilot in WWII? This isn't evidence that the game is rigged. Its evidenced that liberal, Rockefeller Republicans like the Bushes are too stupid to realize they are getting used by the Dems.
This whole Bush re-hab tour is sickening.
Yes I applaud him for what he did after 9/11.
However, so many of his other actions were so bad that it can be argued that they equalled out any good he did.
Patrick Gavin = pot stirrer.
Political differences? Other than the fact that Clintoon spent a lot LESS of our hard earned money than Bush I didn't see all that many differences.
You needed that to lose respect for the Bush family. The Mom seems fine, but the boys.... Jeez.... Economy dead, Islamic Militants on the march, and Mexico invading the US. How is that Bush, Clinton, Obama change treating you....
You know the Bush’s have to be great people to like Bill Clinton after the way he and his campaign TRASHED George H W Bush in the 1992 campaign! It was DISGUSTING!
I suspect that this is a transcription error. The normal phrase is "I genuinely like him".
Frankly, I'm not thrilled by this, since I think Clinton should be shunned. But, I'm prepared to cut a little slack here in the name of gentlemanly behavior.
But if a Bush ever says nice things about Obama, then -- well, there's just no cause for that at all.
Are you saying the quote is false?
“Rockefeller Republicans like the Bushes are too stupid to realize they are getting used by the Dems”
It’s unplausible that people so stupid could reach the presidency.
burds of feather....
Bush already has. Obam has used Bush as a pinata for three years now and Bush has not done one thing to even remotely stick up for himself.
And spare me the but he is “classy” nonsense. Its not classy to be a putz and a whipping boy for a communist hack like Obama.
Elitists sticking together, definitely.
"Life is like a box of ex-presidents..."
Does anyone doubt that Bush is a RINO (economic liberal, social conservative)? Both he and his father are globalists. That is, one-worlders.
Yes, the game is rigged.
They are a part of the global banking/investment conspiracy. Soros is just one of them. Take a look at the investment groups that Daddy Bush works for, even today. Same crowd as the Clintons, Gores, and the Obama trash.
“I will turn over the keys to the kingdom if you let my friends pilfer the system.”
Democrats and most Republicans agree to this philosophy.
