They were his idea and he advocated for the policy extensively, and yet, former President George W. Bush hates that everyone refers to the tax cuts under his administration as “the Bush tax cuts.” I’m sure President Bush has heard the phrase “You break it, you bought it” before. Then again, perhaps it’s that kind of reality check that has the former commander-in-chief saying he doesn’t miss his old gig.

Politico reports:

“I wish they weren’t called the Bush tax cuts,” the former president said as he kicked off the Bush Institute Conference on Taxes and Economic Growth in New York City. “If they’re called some other body’s tax cuts, they’re probably less likely to be raised.”

When President Barack Obama agreed to a two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts in December 2010, it outraged many congressional Democrats. But on Tuesday, White House campaign strategist David Axelrod said that Obama was “absolutely” committed to blocking any continuation of the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthy.

Meanwhile, the former president also said that he doesn’t miss his old job.

“I’m often asked ‘Do you miss the presidency?’ I really don’t.” Bush said.

“I have decided to stay out of the limelight. I had plenty of the limelight,” he said. “I enjoyed it. It was unbelievably interesting experience.”

“It’s inconvenient to have to stop at some stop lights coming over here — I guess I miss that,” he said jokingly.

Well, I’m sure the feeling is mutual among many, Mr. President.

On another note, Bush commented that when it comes to the notion of undercutting our current president by way of public criticism, he’s dead set against it. On President Obama, Bush said, “I don’t think it’s good, frankly, for our country to undermine our president, and I don’t intend to do so.”
