The Dalai Lama loves Pres. Bush as a person

The Dalai Lama is likely to respect Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, and Mother Teresa among others, but one person he is impressed by may surprise you: President George W. Bush.

In an interview with CNN’s Piers Morgan, the Tibetan leader said, “I love President Bush.” When asked to confirm by Morgan to which one he was referring, he responded,
“The younger one.“

All Morgan could muster was, “Really?”

While the Dalai Lama disagrees with many of his policies, he said he did love Bush, “As a human being. Not as a president of America. Sometimes his policy may not be very, very successful. But as a person, as a human being, very nice person. I love him.”

Didn’t see that one coming…
