I also know the Obama team has deeply appreciated the degree to which President Bush and his staff
went out of their way to make for a smooth transition. Aboard the Bush Plane by Mark McKinnon :mad: :grr: :puke: Oh yeah, went out of their way.....made the Obamas move twice in 5 days for some has been from Australia.

In a Daily Beast exclusive, a former Bush advisor files his accountand his photosfrom aboard the former presidents flight back to Texas.

Knowing it would be impossible to get out of the city Tuesday morning, many of us arrived Monday night at the very funky Econo Lodge by Air Force Andrews Base. The Blair House it was not. But good to be humbled on the way out.

We jumped in a van in the morning and watched Obamas inaugural address from the lobby at Andrews. The group of 100 or so watching, of which 100 percent were George Bush supporters, all offered their enthusiastic applause for the new commander in chief. Not to say there werent some critical reviews of the speech, complaints about taking unnecessary shots, and grousing about borrowed ideas, but there was an absence of malice one normally sees among the constituencies of the vanquished.

And then we all boarded the plane. Among the passengers, longtime Bush family, friends, and staffers included the former presidents mother and father and daughters Jenna and Barbara, Karl Rove, Karen Hughes, Dan Bartlett, Josh Bolten, Joel Kaplan, Jared Weinstein, Mike Meece, Andy Card, Don and Susie Evans, Blake Gottesman, Clay and Ann Johnson, Ed Gillespie, Barry Jackson, Joe Hagin, Israel Hernandez, Jeanne Johnson Phillips, Margaret Spellings, Alberto Gonzales, Brad Freeman, Jim and Debbie Francis, and Roland and Lois Betts.

full article if ya want to gag through the whole thing....

1. And just when you begin to think
that plane crashes are a bad thing . . . .

This proves there is no god. If there were, that plane would have disappeared in the Bermuda Triangle.

3. Aw, jeez, not the Bermuda Triangle.
Then there would be rumors of Bush sightings and whatnot for the next 200 years.
