Al Madrigal visits the George W. Bush Presidential Library and aces the test based on the former president's pivotal policy decisions. (4:17)

SO BAD.

A LOT LESS MOON DEATHS IN HIS

PRESIDENCY.

ANY LIBRARY WILL HAVE TO GRAPPLE

WITH THE DECISION MADE BY THIS

PRESIDENT-- IRAQ, KATRINA, THE

FINANCIAL CRISE.

>> VISITORS CAN GO AND THEY CAN

GET ACTUAL ADVICE FROM THE REAL

ADVISERS TO PRESIDENT BUSH, AND

IT ALLOWS VISITORS TO MAKE

DECISIONS LIKE PRESIDENT BUSH

DID.

ONE OF THE KEY PARTS OF THIS

MUSEUM IS WHAT'S CALLED THE

DECISION POINT THEATER.

IT'S AN INTERACTIVE EXHIBIT.

>> Jon: YEAH, I GUESS

THAT'S BETTER THAN ITS ORIGINAL

TITLE-- "DISASTERPIECE THEATRE."

FOR MORE, WE GO LIVE TO

ALMADRIGAL WHO JUST FINISHED HIS

TOUR OF THE GEORGE W. BUSH

PRESIDENTIAL LIBRARY.

AL, YOU FINISHED THE TOUR--

WAIT, WHAT IS THAT IN YOUR HAND?

>> GEORGE W. BUSH STAKE ON A

STICK, JON.

STEAK ON A ( BLEEP ) STICK.

THIS IS LITERALLY THE GREATEST

LIBRARY EVER.

THE EXHIBITS, STATE-OF-THE-ART.

THE ARCHITECTURE IS SIMPLE YET

ELEGANT.

I USED THE BATHROOM.

I DON'T THINK IT HAD EVER BEEN

TOUCHED BEFORE.

WAY IN THE BARK SO QUIET, SO

CLEAN.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT, AL,

LET'S NOT--

>> IT WAS LIKE TAKING A DUMP IN

A BRAND NEW CADILLAC.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT.

( LAUGHTER )

IT'S NICE WHEN YOU FIND THOSE

SPOTS.

>> AFTER-- AFTER A COUPLE OF

THESE BAD BOYS I HAD A LITTLE

SHOCK AND AWE OF MY OWN.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT, LISTEN,

CAN WE-- CAN WE TALK ABOUT THE

MUSEUM?

>> YUP.

IT'S INCREDIBLE.

DECISION POINTS THEATER,

AMAZING.

I ACED IT BY THE WAY.

INVAED IRAQ?

YES.

RESCUE NEW ORLEANS?

NO.

BAIL OUT WALL STREET?

PASS THE CHECKBOOK.

>> Jon: AL, WHY, KNOWING

WHAT WE KNOW NOW, DID YOU CHOOSE

"YES" ON INVADING IRAQ.

>> THE CHOICES WERE A., LEAVE A

MAD MAN IN POWER WHO WILL

DESTROY WESTERN CIVILIZATION.

OR B., BE A LITTLE BITCH.

>> Jon: WHAT?

( LAUGHTER )

>> HARD TO CHOOSE B THERE, JON.

>> GL JUST OUT OF CURIOSITY,

COULD YOU CHOOSE B.

WHAT IF YOU HAD CHOSEN NOT TO

INVADE?

>> A VIDEO OF GEORGE W. BUSH

COMES UP AND TELLS YOU THAT YOU

MADE THE WRONG DECISION.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: YOU'RE MAKING THAT

UP, RIGHT?

>> NO, NO, NO, THAT'S ACTUALLY

WHAT HAPPENED AT THE GEORGE W.

BUSH MUSEUM.

( LAUGHTER ).

FOR REAL.

>> Jon: SO WHAT ELSE IS IN

THE THEATER?

>> IT'S MOSTLY GRISTLE.

>> Jon: WE'LL WORK ON THAT

NEXT TIME.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

>> THANK YOU.

( LAUGHTER )

>> TAKE YOUR TIME.

LISTEN, I DON'T KNOW THE

HEIMLICH.

NOT THAT YOU'RE HERE, I'M JUST

SAYING IF YOU WERE HERE, I DON'T

KNOW THE HEIMLICH.

I CAN'T SEND ANYBODY TO WHEREVER

IT IS THAT YOU ARE THAT WE WOULD

SEND SOMEBODY IF YOU CHOCKED ON

THE STEAK WHERE ARE YOU

CLEARLY-- JUST ( BLEEP ) GO.

JUST GO.

( LAUGHTER )

>> WELL, JON, YOU REMEMBER THAT

TIME HE GROPED ANGELA MERKEL AT

THE G-8 SUMMIT.

>> Jon: GEORGE, I REMEMBER

THAT?

>> THAT WAS A BIG EMBARRASSMENT,

RIGHT?

>> Jon: YES.

>> IT TURNS OUT IF YOU COMIEWZ

NOT TO DO THAT, ANGELA MERKEL

HAS A FATAL PANIC ATTACK AND

DIES.

>> Jon: SO THE-- SHEIDIZE

FROM A PANIC ATTACK.

DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN?

IS THAT EVEN A THING?

>> TELL THAT TO THE GAME, JON.

PANIC ATTACKS ARE FATAL FOR

GERMAN LADIES, AND THE ONLY WAY

IS TO SHOW THEM HOW WE RELAX IN

"HEY GIRL."

THERE'S A DECISION POINTS ROOM

AT THE CLINTON PRESIDENTIAL

LIBRARY GLI DIDN'T KNOW THAT.

>> WELL, ACTUALLY, IT'S JUST A

CROTCH-LEVEL HOLE IN THE WALL.

( LAUGHTER )

>> Jon: SO THEN YOU-- YOU

DECIDE WHETHER OR NOT TO... TO

PUT YOUR--

>> YEAH, EXACTLY.

AND I HAVE TO ADMIT-- I GET IT

NOW.

>> Jon: ALL RIGHT, THANK

YOU VERY MUCH, AL.

HERE.
