Former President George W. Bush says he's an interested observer when it comes to the 2012 race for the White House and also discusses former vice president Dick Cheney's new book.
Former President George W. Bush talked about the upcoming presidential race and the recent release of his former vice president's book before a charity event Thursday in Dallas.
In an interview prior to teeing off Patriot Golf Day, Bush was asked about the 2012 race for the White House.
"I'm going to support our party's nominee," Bush said. "In the meantime I'm going to remain an observer, an interested observer."
Bush said while he follows politics he also follows baseball. Bush is a regular at Texas Rangers home games.
Bush was also asked about his cabinet being in the news after the release of In My Time, a book from his vice president Dick Cheney.
"I'm glad members of my 'family' are giving their version of what it was like to serve our country. I did the same thing, I put my version out there," Bush said. "And eventually objective historians will analyze our administration and they'll draw objective conclusions."
Bush was at Dallas National Golf Club Thursday to urge Americans to pay an extra dollar while golfing over the holiday weekend in order to raise money for the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships for families of military service members killed or disabled in the line of duty.
