Former President George W. Bush Talks About Life After the White House
"I'm a content man," says former President George W. Bush, talking for the first time about life after the White House.
He tells Today's Matt Lauer he doesn't lose any sleep about how people rate his time in office.
"This may seem strange to you. I really don't care about perceptions at this point in time. I served, I gave it my all," he says.
Bush is promoting his new autobiography, Decision Points.
"The book has been part of the transition process to private life and it's a way for me to put the reader in the environment in which I had to make decisions," says the former President.
Surprisingly, he tells Lauer the lowest point of his presidency was that much-publicized moment when singer Kanye West criticized Bush's response to the Hurricane Katrina disaster.
"George Bush doesn't care about black people!" said the rap artist.
Bush describes the comment as "disgusting" and writes, "The suggestion that I was racist represented an all-time low."
