On flight back to Texas, Gonzales cried, received a kiss from Bush.

Immediately after President Obamas swearing-in yesterday, George W. Bush and a group of his loyalists including Margaret Spellings, Karl Rove, and Alberto Gonzales flew back to Texas for a welcome home rally. Cox News reporter Ken Herman caught up with Gonzales, who shared some of the moments from the plane ride:

GONZALES: The last thing he said as he was getting off the plane he kissed me on the forehead and he said, Just stay strong. <>

HERMAN: Any tears shed on the plane by anybody?

GONZALES: By me, yeah. There were a few.

HERMAN: Why?

GONZALES: Just pride. Just love and appreciation for the man and what he did, Ken. I feel being on this trip did a lot for me, in terms of just making me realize it was a small part, but I played a part in protecting our country, and I take a great deal of pride in that.

1. Protecting our country?
He was the Attorney General. Are they all trying to cash in on the "no attacks since 9/11" meme?

I'm just shocked speedy can recall any of it.

Another shocker: "...Fox News was the only network to carry a live telecast of Bush's homecoming in Midland, TX."

These people are so predictable!

8. The country WILL NOT be missing Bush "real soon"
The country will be suffering from a chronic hangover due to Bush's irrational, ill-advised, and illegal decisions in office.

And if justice prevails, Bush and his cronies will be held accountable for their actions.

18. You can always tell a gathering of stinking Republicans.
There's always some simpleton, hillbilly music blaring in the background. Cause that's what those "Real Amuricuns listen to..." It's so nice to be free of redneck politics at last.
And a message to the asshole that thinks "We're gonna miss him real soon." Fuck you and the horse you rode in on.

they destroyed the lives of millions and they've tortured people needlessly, ignored Katrina, started a war that has directly/indirectly resulted in the deaths of about a million Iraqis, and they spied on Americans while outing an undercover CIA agent!
