President Bush hasn’t always been our favorite person, but the politico warmed our hearts a bit today when he addressed the nation to publicly congratulate Barack Obama on his White House win. Said Bush:
It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have awaited so long. I know Senator Obama’s beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol – and take his oath to uphold the Constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth.
What a gent – and we actually mean that!
