Bush Trashes Obama, Palin

He may be in the running for worst president ever, but George W. Bush still talks a big game: Matt Latimer, a former speechwriter for George W. Bush, writes in his new memoir, Speech Less: Tales of a White House Survivor, that Dubya dissed pretty much everyone, including Barack Obama. "He came in one day to rehearse a speech, fuming," Latimer writes in an excerpt in GQ’s October issue. "'This is a dangerous world,' he said for no apparent reason, 'and this cat [Obama] isn't remotely qualified to handle it. This guy has no clue, I promise you.'" When it comes to Sarah Palin, Bush was equally harsh. “This woman is being put into a position she is not even remotely prepared for,” he said. “She hasn’t spent one day on the national level. Neither has her family. Let’s wait and see how she looks five days out.”
