I was watching MSNBC and when this started, Keith, Rachel, and Chris were saying how disrespectful it was....also when the crowd starting booing Bush.

But guess what? It's America, and if we want to boo the president, we have that freedom. I'm not too worried about he or Cheney's "feelings".....they didn't worry too much about ours.

Rachel and Keith were both pretty perturbed by what they heard. I think it would have been best to do nothing .. don't clap, don't say a word. Shunning is apropos for Wonderboy. Let's treat him like someone who leaves the Amish.

I didnt see that part, but I did see the segment (posted on youtube, linked here by a nice poster) in which, just after the helicopter lifted off, the people began singing; the anchors talked right over it, though you know there were a lot of eye-meets in that moment.

It was the first time that they were allowed to voice their disgust outside of a "free speech zone". If you can't say anything and be heard for 8 years, you have a lot of pent up energy to dispel.

I can easily understand how it happened.

That's strange. I have heard that every 4 years since like Abe Lincoln left office too soon. And every 4 years after that there were lies lies and more lies and more of the same ol crap. But the people stood by their man and asked Americans to stand hand to hand. Only to be let down and double crossed again.

Voters never learn.

I hope all your enthusiasm works out. I really do. But I know in my heart that everything will go right back to the same ol politics soon enough. I hope Im wrong but I have a perfect record so far of being right when it comes to judging political clowns.

I predict in a year or so the posts on this forum will turn to hatred of this man who says he will bring change but never told us what that change is yet.

Man I hope Im wrong. But I do want the Dictator bush in prison with a soon to come world wide TV viewing of his public hanging from the same rope that Saddam did for crimes against humanity.

Dictator bush, I leave you with this memory:

You sure do have it right. Lets ask the families of those lost loved ones do to his dictatorship. This clown should not even be burried in Arlington. He should be burried in Baghdad since he seems to be so fond of it there.

If he was so concerned about liberating Iraq then perhaps he should have given them our Constitution. What the hell..........we ain't using it anymore.

Consider the source. CNN has a long history of deliberately lying to the people.

Someone upthread mentioned that Bush had class. Here's the last crappy thing he did to Obama:

Sorry, We’re Booked, White House Tells Obamas - The Caucus Blog - NYTimes.com

...The White House has turned down a request from the family of President-elect Barack Obama to move into Blair House in early January so that his daughters can start school on Jan. 5.

The Obamas were told that Blair House, where incoming presidents usually stay in the five days before Inauguration Day, is booked in early January, a spokesperson to the Obama transition said. ...

It remained unclear who on Bushes guest list outranked the incoming President.

“It’s not a public schedule,” said Sally McDonough, spokeswoman for First Lady Laura Bush, in refusing to disclose who was staying at Blair House.


More at link.
No international dignitaries; probably parties for the outgoing administration...
And, IMO, a nice little dig.

So please, don't tell me that Bush has class.
I'll never be that delusional.
