Bush: Mother Calls Clinton “My Fourth Brother”
CBS News ^ | January 17, 2010 | Michelle Levi

Posted on 01/17/2010 12:49:15 PM PST by presidio9

Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton have joined President Obama to spearhead American relief to victims of Haiti’s devasting earthquake. During a Saturday interview for "Face the Nation" at the White House, the two politically opposite former President’s admitted how close a relationship they actually have.

Moderator Bob Schieffer asked both men if they consider one another good friends. “Yeah I do,” Bush replied. “Me too,” Clinton echoed.

“My mother…calls him my fourth brother,” Bush admitted. “The black sheep of the family,” Clinton joked.

President Bush admitted that on occasion he would call his predecessor while in the White House.

“I was always pleased when he called me,” Clinton said. “I’d try to make it a practice never to bother the president. I don’t call President Obama either, I don’t think it’s you know, they’ve got plenty to do. But I, we have developed a very honest, good friendship,” Clinton explained.

“We’ve made our disagreements respectful and we’ve had a good time doing it,” he added.

The Bush's East Coast elitist noblesse oblige, and Clinton doesn't get it.

I know. The libs won’t ever stop laughing at him and he just lost more respect of those who supported all the way. I never believed that the serenity part of the AA prayer meant “step on me so I can absolve my guilt”.

Bush the elder is more than a passing acquaintance of Slick Willie.

See:

“Compromised: Clinton, Bush and the CIA” by Terry Reed.

ISBN 1-883955-02-5

Got my copy 3 weeks after publishing, just after Slick Willie’s inaugural. It is credible except for some accusations on the cover that are clearly wrong. (to sell books)

Slick was bought with money off Contra effort cash flow. As miserable as Slick Willie is, he is Not nearly as bad as Obozo is.

Not everybody who quits drinking goes to AA. To my knowledge George Bush was never "in" the Program.

There fixed that!

I can't stand RINOs. It is time to get rid of them all.

As much as I always respected the Bush’s, I have to agree with you. Now if we can keep that skank Hellary from running for the Presidency again, all will be well. :)

There are only a handful of men who understand what doing that job is like. I can understand how they develop a camaraderie. I didn't like much...well most....of what Clinton did but when you compare him to zero then Clinton seems like a cakewalk. I wonder how zero will fare in the Past Presidents Association?

What a load of rubbish. Slick Willie will continue to lie right until the very day he passes from this earth..
Anyone remember Bill Clinton's campaign in Florida against Jeb Bush? And the anti-Goerge Bush hate he actively stoked up?
