WASHINGTON (CNN) - As outgoing Press Secretary Dana Perino handed out presidential M & M’s to the White House press corps Tuesday morning, she said that President Bush went to the Oval Office at 6:50 this morning and spoke by phone to Condoleezza Rice, Andy Card, Stephen Hadley and Minister T.D. Jakes, who is a close friend of the outgoing president, and will be giving the sermon at the St. John’s service this morning.
Perino says the President took a last walk around the South Lawn and spent the rest of the morning with his family.
When asked how the president is feeling, Perino said that this is an emotional day for everyone.
It is interesting to see the Obama supports spew hate and venom when even their own elected President is asking for responsibility and love. I now support Obama but also wish the Bush family the best. I don't think I saw any of the hate mongers names running to serve their country... Talk is cheap.. Go do something and be productive to make this country better rather than blame...
Mick of Mesa – you remind me of the type that nailed Jesus to the cross.
Dana Perino bids farewell to the press.., progressively selfish morons who have become capitalism's number one enemy.
Dana Perino, best of luck in your future endeavors. God bless President Obama.
My ,my, we sure are catty this morning.
Carol- 9/11 STILL happened on W's watch. Nothing will ever change that. "Kept us safe"- what a crock.
the bible tells us so, right?
or... was it rush who babbled on painkiller... ?
hard to tell.
The level of animosity and outright hatred towards Bush is so over-the-top. If Bush had found a cure for cancer, the media would have blamed him for destroying medical and pharma jobs.
In contrast, with Obama I'm reminded of a Benny Hill skit. It was quiz show where the host wanted the attractive woman contestant to win.
Host: What is the name of the major tennis tournament held in London?
Host: [makes sound like "wuh"]
Host: [makes sound like "Wimble" while pretending to sneeze]
Contestant #1 (attractive woman): Wimbledon!
Host: How many people attended Wimbledon last year?
Contestant #2: 10,000
Host: I'm sorry, it was 10,002. Thank you for playing.
Host: What were their names and addresses?
Contestant #3: [blank stare]
Host: Thank you for playing
Obama is contestant #1. We've got four years of softball questions and Chris Matthews with a hard-on.
@ Al and Carol
What have you two been smoking the last 8 years ?
"President Bush was successful in preventing more terrorist attacks on this country since 9/11."
What a revolting load of self-justifying sophistry. There is no vast, capable terrorist conspiracy. "The Terrorists" are a bunch of losers, spending their lives hiding out in caves, nursing their frustrated sense of entitlement. These are the guys who send their nephews out to be made into involuntary martyrs, worse than pimps sending little girls out into the streets to be used. WE MUST NOT FEAR THESE PEOPLE.
Also, a heartfelt "good riddance" to our nation's current Mistress of Mendacity. She never met a politically-expedient lie she wouldn't repeat in the President's name.
