On the eve of the inauguration, a day filled with excitement, promise and tribute, it's time to thank President Bush. On the eve of the end of our eight year national nightmare, it is only fitting that something be said on the pages of this blog that recognizes the role W and his administration played in what we will witness tomorrow, 20. January 2009.
_For without George W. Bush, an Obama presidency would not have been possible.
_For without George W. Bush, we would have certainly accepted mediocrity as a result of the election.
_For without George W. Bush, we would not have been tested as a nation to how far low we would be willing to go before we said - enough.
_For without George W. Bush, the promise of America would have only remained in our history, and not in our future.
_For without George W. Bush, we would have never experienced our collective hunger for intelligence, curiosity, compassion and science.
So I'm only going to say this once, thank you President Bush.
