London, Apr. 24 (ANI): George W Bush's presidential library opening will be like a wedding without alcohol.
Visitors to his official library, which will open in Dallas on Thursday, will be presented with the interactive exhibit asking them to second guess four key moments in his presidency: removing Saddam Hussein, the US army "surge" in Iraq, bailing out the banks and responding to hurricane Katrina, the Guardian reports.
According to the report, the library opening marks a concerted effort among his supporters to soften the reputation of a president who left office with lowest approval ratings in recent US history.
They will be helped by the official pomp that surrounds such events, with Presidents Barack Obama, Clinton, Carter and HW Bush all due to give speeches highlighting the positive aspects of the 43rd presidency.
Danielle Pletka of the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute said that It will be a little like a wedding without the alcohol.
He added that it doesn't matter how much you hate the mother-in-law, people find nice things to say.
Aides said that a conscious effort has also been made to make the library look more 'approachable'.
It will also focus on less controversial aspects of his legacy such as support for Aids victims in Africa, the report added. (ANI)
