George W. Bush visited VSU

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

Former President George W. Bush is headed back home to Texas now after spending the evening at Valdosta State University.

He was the keynote speaker at Georgia Christian School's centennial celebration dinner.

540 people were there to hear him talk about his new presidential library and his life after leaving the White House.

One guest told us he enjoyed listening to the President and would like to go fishing with him.

“Instead of a president, they got to see a real human being and what he really is all about. He truly cares about the United States of America. He cares about the veterans, he cares about the world,” Brad Lawson, Georgia Christian President.

I wouldn't care whether we caught a fish or not, I'd just like to talk to him about his stories. It was great,” said Brig. Gen Troy Tolbert, U.S. Air Force, Republican.

The Secret Service refused to allow us to record audio of the President's speech.

President Bush signed copies of his new book for troops at Moody Air Force Base, before the dinner.
