Obama: Bush Only ‘Thinks’ He Won The Presidency
At least Bush thinks. Obama just goes with his feelings.
Check it out:
Then-Illinois Senate candidate Barack Obama disputed then-President George W. Bush’s presidential legitimacy in a 2004 interview with entertainer Puff Daddy, who was then starring on his “Vote Or Die” tour.
During the interview, Puff Daddy, who later changed his moniker to P. Diddy and later Diddy, asked Obama about the importance of youth voting.
“Well, some people just got to remember what happened in Florida,” Obama said. (7:00) “George Bush won the presidency, he thinks, based on just a tiny margin of votes. If just a few thousand people more vote in Florida, you got an entirely different direction of the country. We probably don’t go into a war in Iraq. We’re probably spending more money on schools, more money on job training, more money for programs for ex-offenders.”
Obama has recently come under fire for the unilateral release of Taliban leaders. And just weeks earlier, his attorney general announced “Clemency Project 2014” to grant clemencies to drug offenders sentenced during the Bush administration.
