If you’ve been watching the Olympics this year, chances are you’ve had your share of George W. Bush sightings. The president isn’t exactly known for his worldliness, but he found the spirit of international understanding and friendship to be a pleasant surprise—a “very uplifting experience,” as he put it. Imagine that.

President Bush said Monday the Beijing Olympics exceeded his expectations, calling them a “very uplifting experience” that he won’t forget.
“The whole thing is genuine,” Bush said in a short interview Monday with The Associated Press before returning to Washington at the end of his weeklong Asia trip. “That’s the good thing about the Olympics. It’s been a lot of fun.”
