I saw George Bush's press conference last night, his final one as President. To me, he sounded combative and whiney, and when asked about his mistakes, couldn't come up with any more substantive than he shouldn't have put up that victory banner on the aircraft carrier, because it "sent the wrong message," and that he should have waited on social security reform.
Absolutely didn't think that Iraq was an error, that U.S. prestige around the world was in the toilet, along with the economy, and more than two out of three Americans believed he had done a crappy job.
Not a lot of bright lights in the sea of darkness that was Bush the Younger's administration.
There's an old Irish saying about being happy to see the back of a man. Works for me.
