Here is Ann Althouse on W:
He seems so gentle and modest. If he has any actual opinions on these subjects, he’s completely hiding them. And yet I’m sure many people think what he’s saying accords with what they think. He’s speaking the language of traditional American politics — the language Trump eschews. Me, I’m a proponent of clear speech. But Bush is being civil and diplomatic and continuing to follow his policy of not trying to cling to presidential power.
What a nice man. And yet they called him Bushitler.
He is a nice man. He was a good president and an even better ex-president. Like Truman and Ike he was able to walk away. His sucessor should take notice. So should the press.
