US President George W. Bush late Tuesday telephoned his apparent successor, Democrat Barack Obama, to congratulate him on his "awesome night," according to White House spokeswoman Dana Perino. "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," she quoted Bush 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 said.
The president also invited Obama and his family "to visit the White House soon, at their convenience," Perino said.
Bush was also to reach out to Obama's defeated rival, Republican John McCain, who conceded the fight shortly after 11:00 pm (0400 GMT).
bush screwed over mccain in 04 and he did it again.
I’ll give President Bush the credit for making a night like this possible.
I love George W. Bush. He has been a great President. I will miss him so much. After January, he can go to the ranch and be shed of the hideous , incessant , evil attacks of the media and Dems. They have their lil messiah now...and took their numbers....666
And where did class get them? Now we've got a full-fledged Marxist headed for the White House.
Thanks Bush for your lack of communication possible to allow this Communist in the Blackhouse.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
One thing F15, this should be the day that affirmative action ended. If a black man can become president, there are no glass ceilings for minorities anymore, IMO. What say you?
I am believing now in conspiracy...why did Bush do this to us....the huge spending and the deficits and not doing anything about immigration....
he welcomes this fascist into the White house?..MY white house?
Can't argue with that.
I’d like to congratulate the “messiah” by offering him the opportunity to kiss my ass on Main Street and I’ll give him 15 minutes to draw a crowd. I do not like fascist dictators.
Bush’s idiotic $700 Billion bailout was the last straw. All that fear and doom and gloom ruined McCain’s chances.
Thanks Bush for four years of 0bama, the socialist — the least qualified President ever.
Obama 2008 ... brought to you by George W. Bush!
NO cheers, unfortunately.
I’m going to join John Birch.
Bush, a big middle finger to you, dumbassed “compassionate conservatism” that made you look like a drunken democrat sailor spending money like there was no tomorrow and treating democrat-socialists with respect instead of crushing their political windpipes.
Obviously, i`ve changed my mind about bush.
Give it a break.
I know you’re frustrated and angry. I am, too. But direct your angst to proper targets. Bush and McCain are not responsible for Obama’s win. Millions of ignorant American voters are.
Easy for him to say. He doesn’t have to observe the prick on the other end of the line scratching his nose in a most peculiar way.
