CAVUTO: The president had said today, take a look at whats happened under my stewardship, jobs are booming, the economy’s better, look what I inherited, look where things stand — I think he was talking about your brother — and saying we are now the most respected country on earth.

BUSH: Yeah, I saw that interview. It’s breathtaking. It’s like our president is living in an alternative universe. Median income is down in the sixth year of recovery, disposable income for families is down, workforce participation rate is lower than it was 30 years ago, people just have given up, and he’s saying that things are better. Look, it’s just not true.

CAVUTO: You do not agree?

BUSH: Mark me as ‘no’ on the subject.
