First Question, regarding remaining $350 billion of the bailout.

Response, Obama hasn’t asked for it to be done on his (GWB’s) watch.

Yeah, I can hardly wait to be sleeping more soundly at night knowing I am being protected by the likes of Obama, Reid, Pelosi and their ilk.

President Bush always a gentleman.
He wants Hamas to stop firing rockets into Israel. Israel has a right to defend itself.

Yep. If GWB hadn’t fiddle-f*****d away the last few years, we wouldn’t have an Obama presidency.

W should have listed the attempted attacks that have been foiled on his watch since 9/11. The MSM can replay his parting message when we get hit again, courtesy of these morons.

Ever since the beginning of the war on terrorism, the Left has been claiming that President Bush lied. Well, at last, I have found a true instance of this: W started this presser saying that the WH press corps has always been professional and fair.

Bush: GOP needs to be more inclusive. Take immigrants, for example....

Party has to be compassionate, and broadminded.

[Yeah, that compassionate conservatism turned out to be a real winner.]

Ditto, my FRiend. He has kept us safe. My disappointment with him has been regarding the border, but who knows how many attacks his policies have foiled here and abroad? I am praying that the testing of the incoming president by the terrorists will not be horrific in terms of lives lost.

I am just astounded at how coalm he is at that lectern. As much as I dislike vulgar displays, I would not blame if he stood there and gave all of them the finger.

He said it....

He was responding to a specific immigration question.

Maybe you need more cotton in your ears so you can just hear what you want to hear.

I love this President. My only regret was that his administration didn’t fight harder in terms of PR and communications. It would have made a big difference.

Immigration again...”I should have proposed immigration reform instead of social security reform after the 04 election...”

Basically another Bush conference of misjoined thoughts put into a monotone response.

Taking no questions on pardons...tells me those border guys better expect to do their time, this jerk is not going to pardon them.

Thank you for serving President Bush. I respect you more today than the four other times I had voted for you.

This TEXAN welcomes you and Mrs. Bush back home.

I applaud your service to our country.

Right now he's reminding the press of what it was like right after 9/11. He's telling him congress was wondering why no one had connected the dots and the attacks had sneaked up on the US.

Then legal policies were put into place to connect the dots and the same ones were screaming about that.

He's right. He needs to tell this press corps what they should do to themselves but he has too much class for that. He will leave with dignity.

This guy has taken abuse and if I have a criticism of him, it's that he failed to communicate sufficiently with the American people and he refused to defend himself.

Long live President Bush

"Do you remember how it was around here after 9/11?"

He made his point just by saying that.

You are so right! I have been bemoaning that for years. I think he went about doing the right thing, thinking that these clowns in the press would finally do the right thing and actually tell the truth about his administration. He has been naive about this.

Me too. He has been far from perfect but he handled the job well - and it's about the most difficult job in the world.

Eight years of an openly hostile press and outright hatred from many of the very people he is sworn to protect and defend.

For some,I'm sure that is true.

However I appreciate what this man has done to keep this country safe since 9-11.

Just because that memory of that day faded for some,the threat never did, and this President understood that through all the criticism.

That will never happen because the MSM will never run anything that might cast obamessiah in a negative light. Instead, they'll run clips of The One and his lemmings on the campaign trail saying that we should have finished the job in Afghanistan...

What struck me most about his press conference is how serious he became during the question regarding “what is the greatest threat to the nation?” Deadly serious. The answer, of course, was an attack on the homeland. Made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.
