George W Bush- Won't Second Guess Obama On Iraq

During a discussion regarding the dangers of leaving Iraq too soon (which has led to the current ISIS problem), Brian Kilmeade of Fox & Friends asked George W Bush whether he felt the same way as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey (and the military) regarding the importance of leaving "a residual force of 10 to 15,000 maybe more."

Bush responded:

"I did. Yeah. The president has to make the choices he thinks are important. I’m not going to second guess our president. I understand how tough the job is. And to have a former president bloviating and second-guessing is, I don’t think, good for the presidency or the country.”
Earlier he said:

“I tell people all the time — off the record, by the way — that Condy Rice’s relatives were enslaved in the greatest democracy ever for 100 years." “Democracy takes time to take hold. Yet there is an impatience with that process. Americans have got to understand that the lesson of 9/11 is still important today as it was right after 9/11, and that is the human condition elsewhere matters to our national security.”
What a class act.
