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.

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.
