Dick Cheney's book does not anger George Bush.
The former president spoke with Fox & Friends on Thursday about the former vice president's memoir.
I'm glad members of my family are giving their version of what it was like to serve our country, Bush said. I did the same thing. I put my version out there. And eventually, objective historians will analyze our administration and will draw objective conclusions.
Cheney promised his new memoir would cause heads to explode in Washington.
Former secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell have derided the book.
Rice took offense to Cheney writing that she had misled the president and denied that she tearfully admitted to Cheney that he had been right about a press issue, Reuters reported.
Powell said the book was filled with cheap shots when he spoke with Bob Schieffer of CBS on Sunday.
It's not necessary to take these kinds of barbs, Powell said.
He also defended Rice and scoffed at the tearful comment Cheney made about her.
I think it's a bit too far, Powell said. I think Dick overshot the runway with that kind of comment.
