(CNN) –- The White House said Wednesday President Bush will go directly to Midland, Texas after leaving Washington on Inauguration Day.
White House spokesperson Dana Perino said the President and First Lady Laura Bush will leave Andrews Air Force Base, and fly to Midland for a “welcome home event” in Centennial Plaza on the town square. They will fly on one of the jets he used as Air Force One during his presidency, though it will have a different designation that day.
Midland was the site of his send-off rally when he left for Washington before taking office in January 2001. The president lived in Midland as he was growing up, and it is the first lady’s hometown.
The President and Mrs. Bush will then fly to Waco, and go to their ranch in Crawford for the first night after leaving the White House.
GOODBYE and GOOD RIDDENS!
I thought this day will never come. Thank God!!! Do you need help packing Mr. President? I can have a convoy of Uhauls up to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in no time. Good riddance.
Midland Texas should be wiped off the face of the Earth for being the launching point of this bumbling buffoon's reign of error
George W. Bush – all hat, no cattle.
Just go now. why wait two more weeks. Trust me no one will miss you.
What? He didn't book the Blair House!! Bush knew this day would come no big deal 8 years and you're out. It's not like he's leaving the job broke or without medical coverage for the rest of his life.
Where'd he get that hat from?
So If I understand this article Midland wants this Idiot back? Now that speaks volumes for Texans. it must be a village thing.
I expected to hear him say "I'm goin to Disneyland..ha huh" I'm sure going to miss the laughter he gave me on Youtube!
don't come back
I HOPE TO HEAR FROM THEM NO MORE. THE BUSHES ARE ALL CRIMINALS.
What a wonderful day when he leaves. This country is ready for a real president!!..Fly away on BONE HEAD1.
Do we have to take him?
Good Luck, President Bush and thank you for 8 years of hard work against all odds–you will be known as one of the Great Men in the future! Can't wait for the libs to spew their hate on this article..after all, they have freedom of speech thanks to you and others like you!
Cue the Liberal nut job posts in 3, 2, 1 .....
Rats. We had a hot bucket of tar, a big bag of feathers, and a long hard rail all ready for him in D.C. for his trip out of town.
Waving good bye to you along with millions of other happy Americans.
Thank the Lord! I cant wait until January 20. Its not coming fast enough!
And by the Grace of the Lord, we will never ever have another Bush in the White House in the Future!
Good. I would have made him walk back to Midland.
Now all we gotta do is convince Mexico to take Texas back.
Goodbye and Farewell, only thirteen days to go.
Wouldn't a more appropriate "welcome home" be in Connecticut as he's actually from there?
