Skip to comments.NBC’s Matt Lauer Lands First One-On-One Interview With George W. Bush

With his new book, Decision Points set for release the next day, former Pres. George W. Bush will sit down with NBCs Today show anchor Matt Lauer in a one-hour prime time special.
It will be the first one-on-one interview Pres. Bush has agreed to since he left office. From the Today show site:
Since leaving office, President George W. Bush has never granted a one-on-one television interview about his presidency. But hell sit down with TODAYs Matt Lauer in a special Matt Lauer Reports airing in prime time on Monday, Nov. 8.
President Bush will also join Matt live on TODAY on Wednesday, Nov. 10. He will talk about his book Decision Points, which will be released by Crown Publishers Nov. 9, and about key choices he has made in both his political and personal life.
Choosing NBC, over say Fox News, to tell his story shows the mass audience George W. Bush is looking for in anticipation of his book release (he also recently joined Facebook). Also, the interview takes place nearly a week after the 2010 midterm elections.
Lauer has interviewed Pres. Bush a couple times during his presidency in 2004 and in 2006
W is an IDIOT for going on this show!
Don’t do it W.
These people are *NOT* your friends, neither are they even Americans.
They consider themselves to be “citizens of the world”.
Expect a lot of cutting room mischief.
Why would a great man like George W. Bush was his time talking to a liberal douchebag like Matt Lauer?
No doubt, the first question will be. “Mr Bush, it is true, is it not, that everything is your fault?”
Bush Please just stay gone until after the elections you have done enough damage here.
probably going to help his daughter Jenna, who does features for that idiot today show...
Book tour - it should be harmless
Even after his Presidency, he’s still allowing the leftist media to manipulate him.
Of all people. Who is his handler these days?
What you said!
By the same token, W is a big boy and knows that Matt Wower is NOT his friend!
I guess GW book is about to drop.
Ridiculous. What it "shows" is that President Bush's daughter, Jenna, works for NBC.
Knowing Lauer he’ll ask something like, “Mr. Bush, had it not been for your policies and actions causing the recession, wouldn’t you agree that President Obama is doing all he can to turn it around?” (I hope “W” isn’t shy about standing up for himself).
Or maybe, "Will this book list those mistakes that you would not admit to while you were President"?
After they trashed and destroyed his presidency...
“No doubt, the first question will be. Mr Bush, it is true, is it not, that everything is your fault?”
I’ll give even odds that Bush, either directly, or by failing to defend himself, will essentially agree with that blanket leftwing assumption from the NoTalent Lauer.
Go W! unleash the beast. Lower gets silly, a pop in the schnoz is a great way to get someone to settle down.
Kudos for showing courage though, that will definitely not be a sympathetic interview.
Yep Jorge is back to hanging around w/ his “Ivy League” loving MSM buddies. GET THIS THROUGH YOUR HEADS The Bushes were and are NEVER conservatives.
