From the Los Angeles Times:
The choreography was smooth and the smiles were gracious, but all the same, George W. Bush’s exit from Washington carried a measure of pain.
I had no internets connection last night (thank you, Tropical Storm or Hurricane Fay) , so, in order to have a poster for you kids tonight, I had to rely on what I had on my computer. I found a comic book cover that I didn’t even remember I had and thought I would go with that. Of course, that means I had to find a story to match it, and I came across this from Jack Cafferty at CNN :
Commentary: Is McCain another George W. Bush?
NEW YORK (CNN) — Russia invades Georgia and President Bush goes on vacation. Our president has spent one-third of his entire two terms in office either at Camp David, Maryland, or at Crawford, Texas, on vacation.
His time away from the Oval Office included the month leading up to 9/11, when there were signs Osama bin Laden was planning to attack America, and the time Hurricane Katrina destroyed the city of New Orleans.
Sen. John McCain takes weekends off and limits his campaign events to one a day. He made an exception for the religious forum on Saturday at Saddleback Church in Southern California.
And then we got a housing issue, not in Houston – evidently not in Dallas, because Laura’s over there trying to buy a house today. I like Crawford. Unfortunately, after eight years of asking her to sacrifice, I am no longer the decision-maker. She’ll be deciding.
