A Quiet Farewell and Warm Reception

From the Wall Street Journal:
"President George W. Bush ....... returned to a warm public welcome in Midland, the West Texas oil town he's always called home. Mr. Bush offered a sometimes-emotional accounting of himself in speaking to an enthusiastic crowd in Midland Tuesday evening. "I gave it my all," Mr. Bush said, his voice growing husky. "Sometimes what I did wasn't popular, but that's OK. I always did what I thought was right."

George Bush, as usual, made a gracious and dignified exit!

The Bushes were accompanied on the trip (home to Texas)by a core group of aides who helped Mr. Bush narrowly win two terms as president and achieve some notable policy successes – but also (sucessfully)lead the nation through some of America's toughest times in recent decades, including the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, two wars, recessions, a financial meltdown and a devastating hurricane.

We all should remember that the Sub-Prime Policy of the Democrats, initially by President Jimmy Carter and standards later lowered by Bill Clinton and again later backed by Senate leader Nancy Pelosi, was the major cause of the financial meltdown.

Will Obama turn his back on this long-standing Democrat Policy or will it still be there as a threat to the world's financial future?
