No class shown for two classy Americans

I can see President Bush and Laura Bush sitting in their recliners in front of a fireplace with their feet propped up laughing right now. I think they are relieved. I know I would be. Thank you Mr. President for 8 wonderful years. You dutifully stood by this country while people tried to bring you down. You stood up for what was right and what you believed in. You made this country a safer place to be. You stood up for those who said that they were going to bring down the greatest nation in the world. Thank you for having faith in Americans. Too bad that the leftist liberal media didn't treat you with the respect that you deserved. Too bad the leftist liberals didn't treat you with the respect that you deserved today. Thank you again for being a great man and a great leader.

Bush Mocked As He Arrives on Inauguration Dais

@ 11:52 am by Hill Staff

The crowd packed on the west side of the Capitol grounds serenaded President Bush in mocking fashion when he took to the inaugural stage alongside Vice President Dick Cheney.

"Nah nah nah nah, hey hey, good-bye," a section of the crowd chanted.

The crowd packed immediately below the podium received Bush in stony silence when he took his seat on the stage surrounding the podium where Barack Obama was scheduled to take the oath office to become the 44th president of the United States.

The jeers are among the final public feedback Bush will receive as president.

First Lady Laura Bush and Lynne Cheney received light applause when they were announced to the crowd.

Bush is scheduled to depart from the East Front of the Capitol by helicopter after the swearing-in ceremony.

Obama received the loudest sustained cheers from thousands who chanted his name.

Before Obama took the stage the crowd gave its warmest welcome to former President Bill Clinton and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.)

Vice-president elect Joe Biden also Michelle Obama also received warm welcomes.

House Democratic lawmakers formed a raucous audience from the section of seats rising immediately south of the speaker's podium.

They launched into a "Rahmbo" chant when they spotted White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel.

UPDATE: As former President Bush's Marine helicopter departed the east side of the Capitol, much of the crowd cheered. But at least one man was seen giving the chopper what Bush used to call the "one-finger salute." -Sam Youngman

sad isn't it. I think history will be much kinder to Bush than his detractors!
