Former Cabinet Secretary Tells '60 Minutes' Bush is a Dunce

Posted this afternoon on the CNN website:


President Bush "was like a blind man in a roomful of deaf people" during Cabinet meetings, his former Treasury secretary, Paul O'Neill, told CBS News' 60 Minutes in what the network said was his first interview about his work for the administration.

One-on-one meetings were no different, O'Neill told the network.

Describing his first such meeting with Bush, O'Neill said, "I went in with a long list of things to talk about and, I thought, to engage [him] on. ... I was surprised it turned out me talking and the president just listening. ... It was mostly a monologue."
