Former President George W. Bush has defended former President Bill Clinton and called him his
"brother" in their first ever appearance together on stage.
Bush said in their Friday appearance at a Toronto forum that he never liked it when previous
administration officials criticized his government but says Clinton was respectful and never did.
Bush declined to criticize the Obama administration. Former Vice President Dick Cheney has been a very vocal critic of Obama.
Bush says his mother, Barbara Bush "said president Clinton and Father (former President George W. Bush) share the stage so much, he's like a son to her." He says, "So, brother, it's good to see you."
They faced questions from moderator Frank McKenna, Canada's former ambassador to the United States.
