DALLAS (AP) - Former President George W. Bush talked in a
relaxed Facebook Live webcast about everything from the joy of
spending time with his parents to some of the hard decisions he
made as president.
When Facebook founder and chief executive Mark Zuckerberg asked
Bush Monday why he decided to appear on Facebook, Bush quipped:
"Because you've got a lot of people paying attention to us, and
I'm trying to sell books."
In the hour-long chat webcast on Facebook's live video streaming
channel, Bush stood by his vow to not criticize the current
administration, but he did respond to a question asking what he
thought the Obama administration had handled well. Bush said he
thought they'd done well with Afghanistan so far.
Bush's book "Decision Points" was released this month.
