Comparison photos of Bush's "Yurpeon" Vacations
There will be many more wonderful photos pposted of Obama's trip, so here are a few from our very own dear leader's visits to Berlin, & London...just so we can reeeeeealy enjoy the pictures were are seeing posted these days..

A trip down memory lane..

Most of these are post 2005..
Can never have too many barricades or empty streets..Locals LOVE being inconvenienced





This one was actually in Austria, I think


More more more love



A Fountain in London


Security but not many "fans


The day after the '06 elections


Germany has it BIG for our prez


and theirs too.


Germany.. What a Crowd..


Protest..Like you mean it


This was in the Guardian, apparently

from the Mirror in 2004


No protest zones. (can;t have him seeing dissent, now could we?


Germans prefer NUDE to NUKE (tame nudity..click to see it)

1. Gee...I wonder if Bush has any world travel/sightseeing plans
in the works for after 1/20/2009? I doubt he can ever leave the U.S. again and feel safe. He'll be quiet and rot away in Dallas bar rooms if he's smart.

4. He will go to his own private island in Dubai.
Rot there or in the Dallas bar. Either way, he'll have to hide and rot until he's hauled off for war crimes.

5. bush will make a trip to the netherlands and thats about as far as it will be
whether or not he wants to believe it he is going to the Hague along with a large part of his cabinet, vp for sure if he doesn't check out first which is what I suspect will happen.

9. Yesterday on NPR they were comparing Reagan's visit to Berlin to Kennedy's
apparently Reagan's crowd consisted of 20,000 hand picked "fans" (because he was hated in Germany), while Kennedy's consisted of 400,000 citizens who showed up on their own to cheer the American president. Some things never change.
