Bush's Last Time as Pres.

I caught the end of G.W. Bush's FINAL presidential press conference! It's almost over. Can you believe it's only 8 days away?
Over the last 8 years, I've often shied away from Bush's face, voice, ideas, away from his essence in every way. However, I thought, hey, what the hell, I'll listen to this dude talk for a minute. He clearly seemed frustrated and defensive about his policies, which is typical. Even more on par with his track record, he didn't fully or even sometimes, at all answer questions the way they were asked. I'm not going to say he's without his "charm," he is jokey, in a very traditionally un-presidential way, but I will say that he is a doof. He said Obama was a better "speech-maker" than he was, proving a point with his awkward wording.

Anyway, it seems it is the end of an era for the nation. I will be flying up to DC for the inauguration festivities. This is the time to celebrate a new beginning and a new approach to politics. Congratulations, America, we're getting somewhere, finally.

He seemed pretty annoyed throughout. Hilarious that he thinks very few people hate him.
