Professional prick that he is, ex-president George W. Bush chose to ride the bomb until it made contact.
In this case, he provided cushy, high-paying jobs to high-level GOP donors upon his exit. These posts appear to require little in the way of job duties, yet yield extremely “ample” compensation.
As Bush retreats to his formerly gated, multi-million dollar refuge in the heart of Texas, he can find comfort knowing that he rewarded those who made his presidency possible. It’s called “selective memory”. You gotta’ give him that.
