    Is this the longest farewell tour in our history, or what? Hey Bush, we got it, you're trying to convince us "you done good." Problem is, we have you on miles of tape, so save it.

    @Barack Obama still just B.O.: What are you talking about – he hasn't been sworn in yet. You must be one of those folks we can all thank for voting for Bush not once, but TWICE! You definitely "done good."

    Ohh boy, this is it. There goes my boy were we go way back...were tight, you know? Were tight like that...

    Believe it or not, I am gonna miss him. Is just sometimes that's how it is. Plus, if the Prez is worried about getting attacked, TRUST ME, we are already looking ahead and as a matter of fact, we are already having debates to what can happen later. I will say we had an interesting one that i think is fascinating in many aspects and while everybody is breaking down "analysis" to what people expect and want, let's go back in time.

    For example, I could break down the "play-by-play" video on Hillary's 3:a.m ad. Or the most infamous "Shame on you." Give me the video, and I'll break that analysis better than breaking X's and O's! I'm telling you, got my "analysis" but since I am a Conservative, it is controversial, LOL!!

    I am amazed that we are not hanging our heads after the end of these 8 years. I listened today with much sadness. We need to get away from the time of not being accountable for our actions and President Bush is the inventor of not being accoutable. I keep going back to being sad....may Jan. 20, 2009 be our proud return. I just keep shaking my head after todays press converence by Bush!

    I'll miss him for nothing else than how angry he got the left; it brought me joy everytime I read a message board like this one. Guess you'll all have to start thinking for yourself now...

    And he should get it. Oh, I forgot, better let Osama know so that he can purchase some airtime and grandstand over the Presidents time.

    Sure he should get network time, why not? As long as Dennis Kucinich gets equal time for rebuttal.

    This is why I and other independents will never vote Republican again. How can you republicans call liberals idiots when you voted for him twice? I could respect you all much better if you could acknowledge that this man messed up the country and the world big time. Instead you choose to be stuck on a stupid ideology. I hope he has a lot of time to reflect on what he did. Instead he has this bogus attitude like so what, and you republicans are willing to accept that.

    Stop hating on Obama. I think you are all more scared that he will do a good job of getting us out of this mess that the republicans created, and you won't be able to rag on him.

    Bush and Cheney both deserve a third term...in Prison!
