A Year in the Life of President Bush (a lot of photos): Part 4 (October - December 2008)
www.yahoo.com/news www.whitehouse.gov/news | 19th January 2008 | Snugs

Posted on 01/18/2009 5:29:31 PM PST by snugs

This is the fourth and final part of the 2008 review and as was true for parts one and two and three the following photos may not necessarily be the best photos or the most important but they are chosen because they appeal to me and hopefully to you as well. It maybe because of the content, the expression on the face(s) or just an unusual photo.

As I explained there are so many photos I have split this thread into 4 the first one being January - March, the second April - June, the third July - September, and this one the fourth and final part October - December 2008.

Links to the previous 3

A Year in the Life of President Bush (a lot of photos): Part 1 (Jan - Mar 2008)

A Year in the Life of President Bush (a lot of photos): Part 2 (April - June 2008)

A Year in the Life of President Bush (a lot of photos): Part 3 (July - September 2008)

As with the normal Day in the Life Thread I would request that photos are not posted until the all clear so that we have a chronology series of photos.

Only one more full day for President and First Lady Laura Bush to be in the White House. I’m sure they will make a mad dash to Prarie Ranch when the inauguaration is over. I know I would. I wouldn’t have that job for a million dollars or a billion or trillion. Thank you for posting so many nice things over the years of the President and his First Lady. You are to be commended for the good work you did towards that effort. So again...thank you! :)
