Bush: I miss being pampered

2010-11-14 13:17

Washington - Former President George W Bush says he doesn't miss much about the White House, just the pampering.

Bush told more than 3 000 people at a sprawling central Florida retirement community on Saturday that he misses the convenience of Air Force One and never waiting in traffic jams. The 43rd president said, most of all, he misses being commander in chief of the US military.

In his 30-minute speech, he talked about what it was like to return the salute of men and women.

The Villages retirement community is heavily Republican. Many in the crowd waved American flags and wore hats noting their military service.

Bush is on a national tour promoting his new memoir, Decision Points.
