This isn't even half of it, I didn't want to take up that much room on the thread. You can go to the url below to see the entire interview.
The full text of President Bush's exclusive interview with Fox News' Brit Hume aired Monday night:
HUME: Tell me one thing. How often do you talk to your dad?
BUSH: You know, probably once every two weeks.
HUME: Really? Because I think a lot of people would imagine that you guys would be in touch constantly.
BUSH: No, I'm in touch constantly -- you mean like in terms of asking him...
HUME: Oh, yeah, calling up, saying, what about the Saudis, you know, you've dealt with them, what about them, and what should I do here, dad? You had a war with Saddam Hussein (search). What about that? I mean, sort of, you can understand how people would imagine that.
BUSH: No, I can understand. First of all, I talk to him really as son to father. I am worried about the fact that he is worried about me. You know you a very good question, did I take criticism of him or me easier, and the answer is, I take criticism of me easier.
BUSH: Now it's reverse. He reads everything -- he listens to everything, and I know he agonizes over every, you know, every tough word. And...
HUME: So you end up calling to comfort him?
BUSH: I call him to comfort him, really, yeah absolutely. And let him know that, you know, I'm doing good, don't worry about me. Seriously. And the -- but in terms of advice on how to make decisions, the best advice to get is from people like Rice and Powell and Rumsfeld and Cheney and Tenet and Snow and Evans and Card. I mean, the people that are actually living these issues on a daily basis. It doesn't hurt my dad's feelings, because he knows that they are more up to speed than he is. He does not get the daily briefs. He does not know all the insides and outs of what's going on here.
HUME: What about your brother Jeb? How often are you in touch with him?
BUSH: Maybe once a month.
HUME: Really? That few times. That's very hard -- a lot of people would find it very hard to believe.
HUME: Fellow politician, right? Finger on the pulse of a bit state.
BUSH: We're busy. Understand that. So when he makes a phone call, it's really not to spend a lot of chit-chat time. I do spend time with my brother Marvin and my sister Dorothy.
HUME: But they're right here, too.
BUSH: Right. And they come up for the weekends, to Camp David (search) with us. And it's a good chance to be with them. I love to be with my family, but we are not pick up the phone chit-chat people that much.
BUSH: I've hurt my knee, and...
HUME: How bad is it?
BUSH: It's bad enough that I cannot run.
HUME: What is it? Is it...
BUSH: It may have been a little meniscus. I might have torn it a little bit. I pulled my calf, then I hurt the meniscus, and I am hoping to find a lot of sympathy around here, but I haven't found any yet.
HUME: Looks like you hit the wrong town.
BUSH: Wrong place, exactly. Maybe I ought to go up to Capitol Hill...
HUME: Oh, yeah, that's a hotbed up there. What are you doing for exercise?
BUSH: Exercise. Elliptical (ph). Jim Ryan (ph), here at the White House during a t-ball game, I believe it was, suggested that I go to the swimming pool back over there and run in the pool, put a little floaty on and run.
HUME: Did it work?
BUSH: Yeah, it has, it's good exercise.
HUME: How often do you do it?
BUSH: I do it about three times a week now. And lift weights.
HUME: ... putting green out here.
HUME: Now, who put that in?
BUSH: President Clinton (search) had I think Robert Trenton Jones (ph)...
HUME: Put in the putting green?
BUSH: Well, it used to be there under Ike, and then dad had a synthetic putting green, which is kind of -- yeah, you don't play a lot of synthetic greens around when you play.
HUME: Do you use it?
BUSH: I do.
HUME: How often?
BUSH: I'll come out here -- see my man Barney (ph) over there?
HUME: I see Barney (ph) over there.
BUSH: He loves to play golf.
HUME: Oh, he does? Does he chase your ball?
BUSH: So in the evening, we'll come out here and play, and I'll come out here maybe once a week and walk the dogs...
HUME: So you're more of a golfer than people know?
BUSH: Kind of, but I haven't played much since I've been president. As a matter of fact...
BUSH: I played once or twice this summer, maybe.
HUME: And what about at Camp David?
