Former President George W. Bush has said that he doesn't need to defend his record (some highlights: PATRIOT Act, No Child Left Behind, War in Iraq, Medicare Part D). Bush made the comments only a few days before the opening of the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas, which he has described as a place to "lay out the facts," something that some might argue should have been done earlier.
From The Hill:
Former President George W. Bush said he feels “no need to defend himself” over the high-profile decisions that marked his two terms in office, saying he will leave those judgments to history.
“There's no need to defend myself,” Bush said in an interview with USA Today. “I did what I did and ultimately history will judge.”
