ABC News:

In a personal and wide-ranging interview conducted by his sister about his legacy, his faith and the influence of his father, President George W. Bush said he hopes to be remembered as a liberator of the Iraqi people.

“I’d like to be a president [known] as somebody who liberated 50 million people and helped achieve peace,” Bush told his sister, Dorothy Bush Koch, in a conversation recorded for the oral-history organization StoryCorps for the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress.

An excerpt of the interview was aired on National Public Radio Thursday, and the White House released additional excerpts with both the president and first lady Laura Bush today.

“I would like to be a person remembered as a person who, first and foremost, did not sell his soul in order to accommodate the political process,” Bush said, according to White House excerpts.


Bush said his No Child Left Behind policy, which has been widely criticized by educators as too focused on test scores, is one of his significant achievements.

“I think the No Child Left Behind Act is one of the significant achievements of my administration because we said loud and clear to educators, parents and children that we expect the best for every child, that we believe every child can learn, and that in return for Federal money we expect there to be an accountability system in place to determine whether every child is learning to read, write, and add and subtract,” he said.


“I would advise politicians, however, to be careful about faith in the public arena,” he said.

  2. to happen as is bush being remembered as a “liberator” by Iraqis.  Jeez he really is delusional, isn’t he?  

    BTW, we can add a little bit more to the legacy of the bush era:   5 members of Congress in Bribery Probe. Oh yeah, Dubya, those were the good old days, weren’t they–no regulations, no restrictions and no rules to stop all you fine GOP’ers from doing whatever you pleased.  Unfortunately for the rest of us what you pleased was to start and maintain unnecessary wars, trample the US Constitution, and rob the Treasury.  Heckuva job George.

  3. emotional and mental energy it must take to try to rationalize something productive from the colossal failure these last 8 years have been.

    I get the feeling he’s just kicking back, pouring down “the sauce” and counting the days til its over.
