Bush: "Can I Stop Being President Now?

WASHINGTON—In a press conference held this morning on the White House lawn, President Bush formally asked the assembled press corps and members of his own administration if, in light of today's election, he could stop being the president now. "So it's over, right? Can I stop being president now?" Bush said after striding to the podium in a Texas Rangers cap and flannel shirt, carrying a fully packed suitcase. "Let's just say I'm done as of now. Presidency over." When informed by Washington Post reporter David Broder that his presidency would continue through early January, Bush stared at him quizzically, sighed, and shuffled silently back into the White House.

I love President George W. Bush. He is my favorite president of all those during my lifetime. I hope to write a letter to him while still in the White House. I hope that he will be vindicated someday. He may not be perfect, but he has kept us safe since 9/11. I don't believe the problem with the economy is his fault. He has integrity, and does not retaliate against the tirade of criticism against him.

I like him too. He's a good man who has done right the most important thing in his presidency. He deserves a lot more credit than he has gotten these past few years. I expect that people will realize this one day.

I'm so glad to hear you say that W. B. I was afraid I'd get flack for saying the things I did in this post!

I liked his honesty. Didn't so much like his stimulous package, bail out banks moderate..ness.

I've heard Dems say he is a liar! Glad to hear you say the opposite. I'm not smart enough to know if the bail-out was a good thing. From what I understand it was necessary.
