Former President George W. Bush defended PRISM, the Internet spying program he helped enact, while taking whistleblower Edward Snowden to task.

"I put that program in place to protect the country. One of the certainties was that civil liberties were guaranteed," Bush told CNN in an interview airing Monday.

"I think there needs to be a balance, and as the president explained, there is."

PRISM began under the Bush administration but stayed secret until The Washington Post and The Guardian (UK) revealed its existence last month.

His job approval rating hit an April 2008 low of 32 percent.

At the time the economy was in recession, gas prices neared record highs, and Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama jostled for the Democratic nomination.

Presidents

Bush, Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter were cheered by a crowd of former White House officials and world leaders.

They were joined on stage by their wives - the nation's current and former first ladies (below) - at the outdoor ceremony on a sunny Texas morning.

The leaders were putting aside the profound ideological differences that have divided them for years for a day of pomp and pleasantries for Bush, 66.

50 Cent and George W. Bush celebrate birthdays today. Give it up for firearms!

In a week that has already marked America's 236th birthday, as well as milestones for the bikini (66), Malia Obama (14), The Situation (30), Tom Cruise (50) and Lindsay Lohan (26 going on 47), we honor some all-stars today as well.

The only question? Will guns be more popular at the b-day party of 50 Cent ...

  • Bush Oh Face
  • 50 Cent, Hat
  • Sly Stallone

... or at the bash of our uber-intelligent 43rd President, George Walker Bush!?

We may never know the answer, but we wish 50 (36) and W (66) the best.

Also celebrating another year older and wiser (in some cases) today:

Nancy Reagan (91), Tia and Tamera Mowry (34), Brandon Jacobs (30), The Dalai Lama (77), Sly Stallone (pictured, 66) and Ned Beatty (75).

Toward the end of Game of Thrones Season 1, this HBO epic shocked viewers by slicing off the head of protagonist Ned Stark.

Now, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have given fans another major surprise: in newly-released DVD commentary, the creators admit that one of the heads depicted on a stick during last year's finale was actually of former President George W. Bush!

Look closely at the face on the left:

"It's not a choice. It's not a political statement," the creator insist. "It's just... we had to use what heads we had lying around."

But that explanation isn't enough for Brooklyn Republican Party Chariman Craig Eaton.

A release quotes him as saying during the interview:

“One of my concerns, like the concerns of other husbands and wives, was, ‘Was my spouse okay? Was Laura okay?’ My second concern was ‘Were our girls okay?’”

The chat was filmed two days after the death of Osama bin Laden.

When President Barack Obama authorized a Navy Seal team 6 to take out Osama Bin Laden in Abbottabad, Pakistan last weekend, the world was taken aback.

The world's most notorious terrorist, whose whereabouts (and whether he was even alive) were unknown for years, had been killed. It was a historic moment.

Naturally, Obama's predecessor, former President George W. Bush, used the occasion to speak on the demise of an old nemesis who eluded him for years ...

Nicole Polizzi is not known for her discerning tastes. Sexually, she'll get with almost anyone/thing. Last night on Jersey Shore, JWoww gave Snooki a "boner."

To that end, at the Washington Auto Show this week, Snook was asked if President Barack Obama or predecessor George W. Bush was cuter. Her response:

"I thought George Bush was pretty cute... for an old man."

NICOLE DIGS BUSH: Funny, Snooki normally prefers juiceheads over airheads.

Too bad Dubya's married. These two might actually work as a couple. Both oppose Obama's tanning tax, and neither one of them can balance a checkbook.
