On Fox News...
WALLACE: Do you think there's a rush to judgment about Barack Obama. Do you think voters know enough about him?
BUSH: I certainly don't know what he believes in. The only foreign policy thing I remember he said was he's going to attack Pakistan and embrace Ahmadinejad. I think I commented that in a press conference when I was asked about that.
WALLACE: I hope not. But so you don't think that we know enough about him or what he stands...
BUSH: It doesn't seem like it to me, but this campaign is plenty of time for candidates to get defined. He is yet his party's nominee.
WALLACE: So why do you think he's gotten this far if people don't know what he stands for?
BUSH: You're the pundit. I'm just a simple president.
Responds Obama spokesman Bill Burton:
“Of course President Bush would attack the one candidate in this race who opposed his disastrous war in Iraq from the start. But Barack Obama doesn't need any foreign policy advice from the architect of the worst foreign policy decision in a generation."
