Obama calls younger Bush ‘a good man’

UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas — President Barack Obama joined all of his living predecessors Thursday to pay tribute to George W. Bush as the arguments of the past decade gave way, at least for a day, to a more generous appraisal of a leader who responded to great challenges with determination and grit.

The current and former presidents gathered to dedicate the George W. Bush Presidential Library and Museum here on the campus of Southern Methodist University. Joining them was a collection of current and former foreign leaders and lawmakers as well as hundreds of former Bush administration officials and thousands of his admirers.
