We have a GMA exclusive with former First Lady Laura Bush. We caught up with Mrs. Bush in her new hometown of Dallas, Taxes for a look at life five months after leaving the White House. We talked about a whole host of issues, including her new mission and the latest comments from the former Vice1 President about the current Administration while her husband has chosen to remain silent.

 

He does not want to speak about the current Administration. He didn't appreciate and he didn’t want that when he was in the office, 'cause he understands how difficult it is. But others have been extremely vocal2. His, his Vice President. (Are you trying to name one?) No, his Vice President Dick Cheney has been extremely vocal and, and, and criticizing the current Administration. Do you, do you agree all of what he's saying or how he’s going about it?

 

Well, I mean, I think that’s his right. As a citizen of the U.S., and I think he also feels obligated, and so, you know, I understand why he wants to speak out. On the other hand, George feels like as a former president, that he owes President Obama his silence on issues, and that there's no reason to second-guess any decisions that he makes. And you're right. George is very gracious. That's one of the reasons I’ve loved him so much. And I think people are saying that about him.

 

You both are proud of Republicans (That's right.) You have done a lot of great work for your Party. There's been a lot of in-fighting. As you know, do you all ever discuss, what's going on …?

 

We do a lot. We talk about it a lot. We look at it in sort of the long historical view, not that long of a view, I guess. It comes and goes in cycles, since everybody knows you'll have an election where a whole lot of one party wins. And then a couple of years, terms later, you'll have another election where everybody else on the other side wins. So that's what I think this is. I think it's just a, a very typical political cycle and we'll see what happens at the mid-terms, and...

 

But what about the in-fighting within the party?

 

Well, I think that's also probably not that bad. It's like creative tension within a party for people to talk about what it is, they, how they wanna be represented. And that's one of the great things about the United States of America. And that is we can discuss every side of an issue, and I think that's important.

 

A lot of people were pleased with President Obama and that all of his nominees4 that he was considering for the Supreme5 Court were women, all of his top candidates were women, and with Sonia Sotomayor, that people are very excited, of course, in Hispanic community. (… community as well) Well, what were you thoughts when you saw that he…

 

Well, I think that, I think she sounds like a very interesting and good nominee3 with them, you know, as a woman, I'm proud that there might be another woman on the course, court and then so we'll see what happens, but I wish her well.
