(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.
Like a dog with tail between legs.
THE WORLD WILL BE DANCING IN THE STREETS WHEN BUSH IS GONE. WORST PRESIDENT EVER.
Why is it I could... But CNN couldn't.... Barack Obama will go down in History as America's Destruction..,.. He will have all the Problems!
No other American President as had his Problems.... They were not Muslim. Not Black. Most not Ambition Green....
Jan 20th will be the most wondrous day we've had in 8 years. Good riddance Bush.
Too late, Noah, this Liberal nut bar already had his say, so... 3, 2, 1, B–e me.
Okay Jan, name 8 things the GWB has done put this country in a better place. And I am a very moderate independent, so much for your lib attack theory, Noah and Jan. Jan you either obviously are joking or you must be an inmate that has not been in the real world in the past 8 years.
Do ya think he can leave this afternoon instead?
Just leave the keys to the WH under the front door mat, I'm sure the Obamas will find it....
He's going to Waco? How appropriate.
WISH HE COULD LEAVE SOONER!!!!!!!! WHAT AN IDIOT. THANKS BUSH FOR TRYING TO RUIN OUR COUNTRY.
Maybe he still has time to start another war before the 20th and judging from some the blogs it just might be civil.
Heeee Haw...Must be nice to be rich rich rich....
Wow, you people are so immature, you think Bush makes the U.S. look bad? Take a look at some of the comments on CNN and then think who really looks like the idiot. For goodness sakes, GROW UP.
The paper cowboy.Go back to the state of your birth,Conn.
"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!"
"Jan, it's idiots like you who are to blame for putting the idiot in office"!
Texans – you still have a chance – maybe his plane will go through the Bermuda Triangle and he'll never be heard of again.
MIGHT I HUMBLY SUGGEST ALASKA.
YOU & PALIN CAN KEEP AN EYE ON RUSSIA &
YOU CAN KEEP AWAY FROM OUR EYES AT THE SAME TIME.
Thank goodness we will be free of bush once and fore all. The sooner the better. Do we have to wait?
@ Proud Americans
Don't lump all Texans in that village. All Texans don't want him back either.. especially in Dallas. He's not a true Texan anyway.
The “welcome home event” in Centennial Plaza should be at The Hague.
They should fly him straight to the Hague to be tried in the World Court for criimes against humanity and/or war crimes. Cheney too.
Thank You President Bush for your service. You did an admirable job during a very tough time in our history.
You are to be commended and thanked by All Americans for your service
Don't let the door hit you on the way out!!
Take care George. We know that you had help doing all the damage. You were just following the instructions given to you by the evil ones. You had a choice to deal w/the scrutiny of the public, or the wrath of the string pullers.
Joe buddy, by mid July you'll be singing a different tune.
Can't we just place him into a Wylie Coyote-ish slingshot and launch him through the air out of Washington?
