Bush Says History Should Be Judge of Bonds's Home-Run Record

Breaking News

President George W. Bush said Barry Bonds's breaking of Major League Baseball's home-run record shouldn't lead to a rush to judgment on whether the San Francisco Giants slugger used steroids.

Bonds hit his 756th career home run last night, breaking the mark for most homers that Hank Aaron held for 33 years. Dogged by suspicions of steroids use, Bonds has denied knowingly taking them and has never been penalized for using performance- enhancing drugs.

"There is speculation about Barry Bonds, and my only advice for people is to just let history be the judge,'' Bush, the former owner of the Texas Rangers, told Fox News, according to a transcript of the interview. "Let's find out the facts, and then everybody's opinion, one way or the other, will be verified or not verified.''
