George Bush - the intellectual's intellectual

The president is vague about his own future. When he leaves office he hopes to shave some time off his 90-minute bike ride, and maybe build a freedom institute: "an institute that really, you know, just kind of imparts knowledge and deals with big issues". He's discovered reading, too. When he was governor he was fond of saying that he learned by "doing", not reading, but now he consumes history books voraciously - "I'm on my 87th book this year".

From here.
