Bush Gives Last Press Conference...Thank Goodness!!


Yesterday President G.W. Bush gave his final press conference as President, and we can be thankful our long national nightmare is nearly over! It was pure G.W., alternately self pitying, angry, humorous, finger pointing and flat out misleading.
He denied there was a slow response to Katrina. citing the work of the Coast Guard for rescuing so many in the immediate aftermath of the storm. The Coast Guard did perform heroically but Bush had nothing to do with it. We will never forget the dismal job done by FEMA and his hapless political appointee "Your doing a heckuva job Brownie" Michael Brown. He ignored the facts and put a very feeble spin on the story.
He said he made mistakes, such as the "Mission Accomplished" banner on the aircraft carrier. He ignored the fact that it was his policies which were disastrous.
He blamed the economic crash on Clinton! He said economic problems had started before he got there.
And, in an arrogant act of dismissal, he refused to recognize his longtime nemesis Helen Thomas. It would have been great to hear her question!
Of course there is much, much more to fault him for, torture, ignoring the constitution, tax cuts for the wealthy and the huge deficit he has left as his legacy.
Good riddance President Bush, and don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!
