Bu$h gives his uh heartfelt congratulations to Obama

George Duhhbya Bu$h at his best:

"There's important work to do in the months ahead, and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition, I will keep the President-elect fully informed on important decisions. And when the time comes on January the 20th , Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here -- and with profound gratitude for the honor of serving this amazing country."

US President George W Bush telephoned Barack Obama on his "awesome night" - a historic election win fuelled by the two-term incumbent's vast unpopularity.
Cloistered at the White House with family and senior aides while tens of millions of US voters flooded the polls coast to coast, Bush reached out to Obama and Republican rival John McCain when the outcome was no longer in doubt.
"Mr President-elect, congratulations to you. What an awesome night for you, your family and your supporters. Laura and I called to congratulate you and your good bride," Bush's spokeswoman, Dana Perino, quoted him as telling Obama.
"I promise to make this a smooth transition. You are about to go on one of the great journeys of life. Congratulations and go enjoy yourself," Bush told Obama, she told reporters by email.
After months of near invisibility during the campaign, Bush planned to make a public statement on the hard-fought 2008 White House race in the mansion's Rose Garden at 10.40am (0240 AEDT tomorrow).
And the president invited Obama and his family "to visit the White House soon, at their convenience", Perino said.
The US president also reached out to his defeated chosen heir, telling McCain "John, you gave it your all. I'm proud of you, and I'm sorry it didn't work out. You didn't leave anything on the playing field."
Bush also praised the Arizona senator's "fabulous and very classy" concession speech and sent his best to Cindy McCain, the candidate's wife, said Perino.
Vice-President Dick Cheney telephoned his successor-elect, Democratic Senator Joe Biden, to congratulate him, and planned to reach out to McCain's running mate, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, said spokeswoman Lea Anne Foster.
Earlier, at a private dinner that doubled as First Lady Laura Bush's 62nd birthday party and the kickoff to an election-watching party, Bush had invoked God's blessing on whoever succeeds him, Perino said.
"The president gave a toast at the start of the dinner thanking those present for all the work they've done and for their friendship. He ended by saying, 'And may God bless whoever wins tonight'," she told reporters. Continued...

Well, there it is folks, a nice picture of Bu$h on the desk phone, and Dana Perino telling us what he said to Obama. The picture of Duhbya and the video of Duhhbya are both on the website, but his actual conversation is released in an email to reporters by the Whitehouse press secretary...G:?

Remember what colin Powell said about January


  1. I would sure like to be a fly on the wall, or listen to Bu$hco's phone snooper. My only consolation is that Obama knows what he really said, if anything...G

  2. I'm sure the 'tag' ( as in tag-team ) will be smooth Geez.

    I really hope you regular partisan political believers are right and that Obama won't be as beholden to the global elites and we shumans will stop suffering so much.

    But the 2006 "Election" and "Impeachment is off the table..." Pelosi left such a bad taste in my mouth that for the past two years Listerine, Scope, Pine-Sol, Mr. Clean and even Clorox hasn't been able to get rid of it!

    Maybe the gristmill will slow down somewhat.

  3. Well, I'll do everyone a favor, and not say what's on my mind about all of this. After all, I'm a Canadian, and we have our own brand of foolishness to deal with.

    Quebec has an election coming up in December, also, and the folk there are fed up. I once hated the French, because I felt they were trying to rub our Anglais noses in it. It took me a while to realize that there has always been a select few elitists that have been the cause of all of man's troubles, (aside from our human imperfections) and that people would more readily cohabitate if given the chance.

    I will not participate in the insanity, anymore. Come what may, this highwayman will not be accused of having been complicit in this debauchery. I used to vote... no more! Watching Looney-Tunes, to me, is more productive, now!

  4. "I'm sure the 'tag' ( as in tag-
    team ) will be smooth Geez."

    So true Dad, smooth as cat sh*t. Now that I see that Rhombo is to be chief of staff I'm ready for the blue pill indeed. The reality of more of the same-bro may be more than I can handle...):

    "I'm a Canadian, and we have our own brand of foolishness to deal with."

    Yeh right, Highway, but it sure looks like we will be country men sooner that we thought. Hmm, I wonder which flag we'll use. I kinda like Mexico,cause it has some green in it. I'll still be voting though, mainly because it will probably be a subversive activity...G:
