Former Pres. George W. Bush told Jay Leno he doesn't miss being the butt of late-night jokes these days.

On Tuesday's "Tonight Show," Leno asked Bush how he felt about Pres. Obama getting all the jokes. "Better him than me," the former president said.

Bush also said he didn't think it was right for a former president to criticize his successors.
