Former Pres George W. Bush has a new book, Decision Points coming out and the man is dishing on what people want to know most…his presidency and his alcoholism! Bush says he wasn’t a “knee-walkin’ drunk” and that he could throw down when it came to drinking.
“I could easily have a beer or two, or a martini, before dinner, bourbons, B&Bs. I was a drinker.”
Bush also recalls his worst drunken moment,
“So I’m drunk at the dinner table at Mother and Dad’s house in Maine. And my brothers and sister are there, Laura’s there. And I’m sitting next to a beautiful woman, friend of Mother and Dad’s,” says Bush. “And I said to her out loud, ‘What is sex like after 50?’ ”
After that, one could hear a pin drop. It was “total silence,” says Bush. ” And not only silence, but like serious daggers” from my mom and my wife.
He says that, with a case of “after-dinner remorses,” he later called the woman to apologize. But she got the last laugh. Bush says that on his 50th birthday, when he was Texas governor, the woman sent him a letter reading: “Dear Governor, Well, what’s the answer?”
Wow, what anÂ embarrassmentÂ for his parents and he become the President ofÂ theÂ U.S. Pres. Bush says he quit drinking the day after his 40th birthday and has never looked back!
