Bush: 'History is going to have to judge'

Breaking News

President Bush calls his failure to win Social Security reform “the biggest disappointment’’ of his presidency.

In an interview with the Fox Business Network, Bush said: “The biggest disappointment is not getting a Social Security package, Social Security reform, because that truly is the big deficit issue. I'm sorry it didn't happen. I laid out a plan to make it happen, to enable it to happen. I'm the first president to have addressed it as specifically as I did. I wish Congress wasn't so risk-averse on the issue.”

And Bush, who first campaigned with a promise to restore dignity and honor to the office, was asked if he had accomplished that.

“History is going to have to judge,’’ Bush said.
