A Day in the Life of President Bush (many photos): 1-16-09
WhiteHouse.gov & other sources ^ | 1-16-09

More lasts today …

This morning President & Mrs. Bush departed the White House for Camp David, Maryland, where they will spend their last weekend as the First Couple before Tuesday’s inauguration.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice gave her final press conference today at the State Department in Washington. She also met with Israel’s Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. Dr. Rice’s last official act as Secretary of State was signing a memorandum with Foreign Minister Livni that will help prevent arms smuggling to terrorists in Gaza.

And today Press Secretary Dana Perino delivered the Administration’s final press briefing (Transcript). Dana took time to pay tribute to her predecessor Tony Snow and to all the members of the White House press staff. But one name was conspicuously absent from her remarks.

Q Dana, you mentioned Ari and Tony, but I don't think I heard you mention Scott. Was that a slight or was that -- was anything deliberate --

Dana: No harm meant, I just didn't mention him.

What did you think of his comments [on MSNBC] last night?

Dana: I didn't bother watching them.

Enjoy your visit to Sanity Island

White House Press Secretary Dana Perino waves good-bye to a reporters after giving her final daily briefing, Friday, Jan. 16, 2009, at the White House in Washington.




Q Is there anything more you can tell us about who's going to be at Camp David over the weekend, foreign leader calls?

Dana: Oh, it's just a small group of people. I think that his daughters will be there, and then Secretary Rice is headed up, and Steve Hadley and Josh Bolten are the ones that I know of. But it's not going to be a big crowd. I think it'll be just them, and it's supposed to be really cold.

Q What about Monday, Dana? He's coming back here. It's a federal holiday --

Dana: He'll be back on Sunday.

… Does the President have any plans on Monday [Martin Luther King Jr. Day]?

Dana: No, nothing public. I'll try to let you know that day -- but I do expect we'll have some foreign leader calls that we can update you on, on Monday.

...

Thanks, everybody. (Applause.)

I have got the impression over time that Condi and Tzipi Livni have developed a good relationship

Tonight I’m reading this thread with a heavy heart! I’m going to miss President George Walker Bush. I want to thank you Mr. President for your loyal support of the American people over these last 8 years. May God bless you and your wonderful family. May you live in peace and some day in heaven we shall meet.
