Bush begins long farewell on world stage

Bush Begins His Farewell Tour With His Last NATO Summit and Final Meeting With Putin

TERENCE HUNT

Mar 29, 2008 09:41 EST



Winding down his presidency, George W. Bush is beginning his farewell tour on the world stage trailed by questions about how much clout he still wields.

Unpopular abroad, as he is at home, Bush nevertheless has been a commanding presence among world leaders for the past seven years. Now, with fewer than 300 days left in his term, other presidents and prime ministers are looking beyond Bush to see who will occupy his chair a year from now.

It's an open question whether Bush's foreign policy priorities will be embraced by his successor in the Oval Office. Other world leaders have to calculate how far they should step out on the ledge with a president whose days are numbered and whose legacy had been darkened by the long and costly war in Iraq.

Air Force One will roar out of Andrews Air Force Base on Monday to whisk Bush to the first in a long-planned series of global goodbye events. After a brief stop in Ukraine, Bush stops in Romania to attend his last summit with NATO leaders. A few days later, Bush will land in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi for his probable final meeting with Vladimir Putin as Russian president; his successor takes over in May.

3. He looks like a
crazier version of General Jack D. Ripper.

Uglier by far, too.

geez, louise, enough is enough, can Bush and Cheney just take vacation time until November, he's already spent over a year on vacation now, what's a few months more.

8. Bye-bye W - It's been sur_real
With apologies to Joe Walsh:

I have a mansion, forget the price
Don't like to stay there, they tell me it's nice
I been to I-raq and tore out the walls
I had my Congress just pay for it all

They say I'm crazy but I have a good time
Hook-ing up Dick's oil at the scene of the crime
Life's been good to me so far

My Air Force jet, it does six-eighty-five
I lost my license, now I don't drive
I have a limo, ride in the back
I lock the doors in case I'm attacked

I make hit speeches, my base they can't wait
They write me letters, tell me I'm great
So I got me an office, there's flags on the wall
Just leave a message, maybe I'll call

Lucky I'm sane after all I've been through
(Everybody say Al-Queda's my tool.")
Don't much like vetos, just sometimes I do
Life's been good to me so far

I go to parties, sometimes until four
It's hard to leave when you can't find the door
It's tough to handle this fortune and fame
Everybody's so different, I haven't changed

They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time
(Everybody say Oh, sama and Katrina who?)
I keep on goin guess I'll never know why
Life's been good to me so far

Come on DU - add a few new celebratory lyrics!

14. I hope his last stop is at The Hague at International Criminal Court
But he'll probably retire to Paraguay with the rest of the Nazis and the Bush Crime Family.

I really hate that bastard.
