Bush: Obama Is Doing Just Fine
You probably wouldnt expect former President George W. Bush, in his first speech since leaving office, to praise his successor.
But thats exactly what he did Tuesday.
In a folksy address to 1,400 people in Canada, he expressed confidence in President Obamas ability to mend the economy and financial system, Jason Enns, a financial advisor who attended the speech, told Bloomberg. Media werent allowed at the event.
He told us: Wall Street had a big party and now were dealing with their hangover, Enns says.
Enns said Bush told the audience that he expects Obama will do a fantastic job and that he will provide help and advice if Obama asks for it.
Bush told the crowd in Calgary, which is the base for much of Canadas oil and natural gas industry, that the U.S. will need the crude extracted from northern Albertas oil sands, the largest reserves outside the Middle East, Enns said.

What a tool.
I’m talking about both Presidents.
Well, I’m sure he wouldn’t have voted for a liberal radical like Jim Webb, unlike yourself.
Maybe he’s trying to get hired by the Dixie Chicks.....
Bush takes the loyalty of conservatives and rubs our noses in it.
There’s such a fine line between courtesy and outright stupidity.
No, actually, I guess there isn’t.
He’s just going along with the Bilderbergs, just like his old man did, too.
Papa Bush also got along famously with the Chinese Communists when he was ambassador to China. There is such a thing as being too nice....
Came for the third-party whining. Left satisfied.
I thought President Bush understood how to speak Southern.
Shouldn’t he have said: “Obama’s doing fine; bless his heart”
Ladies and Gentlemen, we have no party.
Ooooh, did I hurt your little hero again...tsk, tsk. Be a man, sentinal, not a backer of spineless jellyfish! Do something for your country like most "real conservatives." Get off your computer and see a recruiter.
These threads crack me up. We know the Dems effectively made the last election a referendum on the President, after failing four years earlier. Now the question is, how many votes will swing in 2012 by making that election a referendum on Bush also?
This is hysterical on so many different levels, I hardly even know where to begin.
His legacy will show what Americans thought of him and his lack of character.
This is all third hand information, no direct quotes from President Bush. Believe what you will if you can believe the media. This article is crap.
Hey George, shut the Hell up and go away. Both of you are AWFUL.
Oh good lawd... Here comes the chorus of old washroom bitties cackling about Bush making a classy statement...
Did he say POTUS or TOTUS (Teleprompter of the United States)(Thanks Rush) was doing just fine????
Olddog, you're a traitor for voting for Jim Webb (and a liar to voot for trying to deny it). Way to stab people in the back. If there was medal for that, you could share it with Ho Chi Kerry.
You read the article?
Bush told the audience that he expects Obama will do a fantastic job and that he will provide help and advice if Obama asks for it....
Who is writing this crap?
Maybe Bush has borrowed OBozo’s teleprompter?
I think they got trampled by the people rushing here to whine.
What time-zone is Bush in?
Apparently original story on Bloomberg.com (cannot post on FR because of complaint). I trust this source (Newsmax) however.
Behind the scenes he has got to be laughing!
Yeah, his support for Specter, our new “leader,” was real classy, too. Our party is in shambles.
Bush is just a little more competent than Obama.
Shut up George.
Just when it was becoming obvious that every mistake they made since TARP 1 is their own....They will use this statement against him again and again for the next year now.
And you're just a plain fool, little guy! And, if you were anywhere near where I was I teach you'd a bit of repect for your eleders.
If Obama goes down big time, the country may very well go with him.
Besides, this sets a very good example for getting back to not bitching about what your replacement is doing, as X42 seemed to enjoy doing so much.
I read the article. Like I said its all third party he said she said. There were no direct quotes at all.
Its unfortunate how so many have so much time on their hands to bash President Bush. I guess you will all still be sitting with your thumbs up your a$$es, yelling it’s Bush’s fault in 2010 and 2012 instead of mobilizing and getting conservatives into influential offices.
No, actually, he really means it.
That's why W. was always Charlie Brown to the Democrat's Lucy.
Agreed, however neither the Canadians nor many northern Americans would understand. In fact, my guess is there are a substantial of the elite who would consider it offensive...after all it *does* imply the existence of some sort of *gasp* God.
I'm sure you can. It doesn't change the fact you're a liar and voted for a raving liberal lunatic.
It goes back to Bush being quoted in Canada yesterday that he wanted Obama to succeed. The perpetually-aggrieved think that he should’ve slit a rooster’s throat, drank the blood, and cursed him instead.
President Bush knows Obama will end up making his own administration look good.
Oh, wait a minute...
Wow, what a thick skin he has. After the daily trashing from the obamanauts, I think he would come out swinging.
Bush is trying to save his behind by NOT saying anything derrogatory or inflaming. He knows Obama and Congress has threatened to go after him on war crimes and could do it...and they have gotten to him. That’s my take on this crap. One day he will write a book about it but maybe by having Cheney do the talking at LEAST he’s trying to get the message out on Obama!
Hahahahahaha..could you imagine?
He has more allegiance to his fellow elitists than he does conservatives...
Bush was not a conservative...how will the Bushbots on this board explain this??????
“You’re doing a heckuva job, Brownie!”
/I can’t believe I typed that, I can’t resist the low-hanging fruit
All FReeper Bushbots should be forced to read just what their hero the zero supporter is saying.
SCREW BUSH, and heck McCain and all RINO’s.
Look, I hated it every time a former president ... i.e. that jerk Carter and sometimes Clinton....criticized the current one....so....I think this is ok - besides Bush knows we all know the truth.
