KENNEBUNKPORT, ME - If you`re ever President of the United States, it`s pretty much a given that you`re going to eventually write a book about your administration. Apparently your son`s administration is fair game, too.
George H.W. Bush wrote about some key figures in son George "Dub-Yah`s" inner circle. Forty-one specifically slams Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld.
According to the New York Times, the elder Bush writes that Vice President Cheney "built his own empire" and asserted too much "hard line" influence in Bush 43's white house. Meanwhile, Defense Secretary Rumsfeld is portrayed as "arrogant." Bush says he "served the president badly."
Apparently Cheney admits to being a bit more hard line post-9/11. Rumsfeld has made no public comments about the book which will be published next week.
