Fox Only Major Network That Covered Bush's Texas Homecoming

Alone among networks, Fox News gives Bush homecoming cheer
04:07 PM PT, Jan 20 2009

Former Vice President Dick Cheney and other Bush administration officials sometimes let it be known that they stuck with Fox News for their informational needs. And on Tuesday, Fox News returned the favor, even as the rest of Washington remained gripped by Obama fever.

Late Tuesday afternoon, Fox News was the only major national TV outlet that carried a live telecast of former President Bush's homecoming speech to cheering supporters in Midland, Texas.

"Sometimes what I did wasn't popular," a smiling Bush told the crowd. "But that's OK. I always did what I thought was right."

The rest of the networks, however, did not see the Bush address as news fit to broadcast. At 6:40 p.m. EST, MSNBC was in the middle of "Hardball," with host Chris Matthews and guests batting around the meaning of Obama's swearing-in. CNN was carrying live ongoing coverage of the final moments of the inaugural parade, with the Obamas beaming from the White House reviewing stand.

1. I didn't give a shit about seeing him when he posed as president
I sure as hell don't want to see him now.

Except to see him in handcuffs leg irons and an orange jump suit standing in front of a judge at Gitmo.

4. That's because we averted our eyes in lieu of having him cuffed and taken into custody.
He should be grateful he's only being shunned at the moment.

7. One of the highlights of my trip to DC...
We were on the mall standing next to the Washington Monument and there we were seeing * being hauled out of there by helicopter! We gave him a real salute as he flew by!

5. A radio station played a clip
On their morning show which had Bush saying he had SIX words for his arrival back in Texas: Good to be home.

SOB still making a fool of himself. Hopefully, that is the last of the coverage of him for quite some time.

6. I believe it was KO that reported that 1800 tickets went unused
at the Midland speech, and the tickets were free! Just thought i'd mention that, it seems so apropos...

Peace!

9. If they're so loved over there in MIldew, that's where they should stay!
But instead they plan to infest Dallas.
