Vicente Fox On Bush : "The Cockiest Guy I Ever Met"

Well, that observation should come as no surprise to anyone who has had even a passing interest in the presidency of George W. Bush. He's probably the cockiest president in American history.

Former Mexican leader Vicente Fox has a new autobiography out and, seeing as his own career as a leader synced with that of Bush, it's no surprise to learn the book mentions W. more than a few times. But Fox isn't full of praise for President Bush.

According to Washington Whispers, Fox has settles a few scores, and makes some pointed observations about the behaviour and attitude of President Bush :
...Fox raps his border pal as stubborn and "the cockiest guy I have ever met in my life."

While he expresses a kinship with W, he breaks with the prez on the war and slams the GOP's immigration platform. He blames Bush's stubbornness on Iraq for bad international relations, calls his Spanish "grade-school level," and admits he didn't think Bush would ever become president.

"I can't honestly say that I had ever seen George W. Bush getting to the White House," he pens.
On that final point, he's certainly not alone.
