George W. Bush getting used to normal lifeMay 23rd, 2009 - 4:36 pm ICT by ANI
New York, May 23 (ANI): George W. Bush is getting used to life outside the Oval Office and the former US President has no complaints about it.
The 62-year-old recently told students at Artesia High School in New Mexico, how he had gone from being a commander-in-chief to playing a chief pooper-scooper these days.
Bush told graduating high schoolers about the changes taking place in his life since the transfer of power in January, and how cleaning up after former First Dog Barney felt normal.
“And there I was, former president of the United States of America, with a plastic bag on my hand,” the New York Daily News quoted him as saying.
“Life is returning back to normal. I realized this was the first time I’d been walking in a neighborhood for 14 years.
“It’s not all that hard, by the way. You take one step, and then you take another,” he added.
According to a report in The Roswell Daily Record, the former Governor of Texas further said he did not feel the burden of responsibility after leaving his presidency.
He added: “I no longer feel that great sense of responsibility that I had when I was in the Oval Office. And frankly, it’s a liberating feeling.” (ANI)
