CURL: W outclasses Barack and Bill, without even trying - Washington Times

We reminisced about all the places we’d been, all the crazy days and wild nights, all the history we’d seen — first hand. Just before we said our goodbyes, I asked her if she’d miss covering President Obama.

“Not at all. He’s an inch deep. Bush is a bottomless chasm, a deep, mysterious, emotional, profound man. Obama is all surface — shallow, obvious, robotic, and, frankly, not nearly as smart as he thinks. Bush was the one.”

Her words, so succinct, have stuck with me ever since. By the way, she’s a hardcore Democrat.

Bush the Elder was at least a grown-up. The others scarcely bear contemplating.

History (if we have any to come) will be far kinder to GWB that the contemporaies, and far less to some of the others
