Love him or hate him, there’s no denying that President George W. Bush has faced tough economic and diplomatic issues during two terms in office.

Daughter Jenna Bush’s upcoming wedding has presented its own challenges.

“I had to face some difficult spending decisions and I’ve had to conduct sensitive diplomacy. That’s called planning for a wedding,” George W. Bush said, eliciting laughs from the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.

President Bush, who will be replaced by Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton or John McCain on January 20, has bigger things to stress out about – wedding planning.

Proving that even being Commander-in-Chief can’t get you out of shelling out too much for your daughter’s wedding – or get you control over the details, the Prez quipped when asked how the planning is going:

“They’re letting me spend money, that’s how it’s going.”

Jenna Bush is set to wed Henry Hager at her parents’ ranch in Crawford, Texas, on May 10. The couple’s engagement was announced in August.

Bush, 26, and Hager, 29, who make a very cute couple, recently enjoyed respective bachelorette and bachelor weekends in Florida.
