What George W. Bush Misses About Being President (ABC News)

President George W. Bush has made a point of staying out of the political limelight since he left the White House five years ago, but there’s still one perk he misses from his time as president – Air Force One.

“A lot of people ask me, do I miss much about being president? The answer’s really no,” Bush said in Dallas, Texas today. “I mean I miss people I served with. I miss Air Force One. In eight years, they never lost my baggage.”

Bush made his comments while highlighting the Bush Institute’s Military Service Initiative with Dr. Jill Biden, the wife of Vice President Biden.

“I do miss saluting men and women who volunteered to defend our nation during war,” Bush said. “Many are coming home and are preparing for new missions as civilians and I intend to salute these men and women for the rest of my life.”
