About a million or so "articles" (if you can call them that) will have to be reviewed if they are forced to accept such a simple little easily sourced statement.

He doesn't have to admit to being WRONG, because his point was that what occured was nothing more than traditional pranks that have been going on for some time as administrations transition. To take umbrage at just one administration's pranks, and ignore other administration's pranks is not exactly displaying any sense of fairness or proportion.

Talk about spin!

But really, kudos to Bush and his administration for finding other ways to play pranks on this administration. Like those executive orders he issued just before he left. Or the mess he left behind. Not in the offices of his administration, but in the policies and rules of the government, in the nation as a whole, divided politically and economically being pounded, in the world with anti-American sentiment running rampant, and political stability at an all-time low. Kudos to Bush! Maybe he just didn't have the heart to keep up with the tradition, or maybe he just ran out of steam. Or maybe he knew Obama would have his hands full dealing with all the other stuff Bush left behind, and he decided to be kind.

Clinton Pardons more than Bush did and more controversial people but Bush is bad....http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bill_Cl...ns_controversy
Clinton passed 41 executive orders in 2000 and 12 in 2001 of which many still have no record but Bush is bad... http://www.archives.gov/federal-regi...s/clinton.html
The tech bubble but that's also Bush's fault...
9/11...Bush's fault
Katrina... Bush's fault....

Oh, but you have to be careful here. NONE by the Bush admin---which Buch admin??? Because there certainly was some by the first Bush admin. Which you are very conveniently ignoring. Does it not suit your argument?
