Retirement or Exile, Show Bush The Exit
As far back in May 2007, BossKitty mused at a possible interview with retired Buuush.
It’s 2020, a reporter interviews ex-president GWB and hears the now familiar mantra, “How many times do I have to tell you? We are making progress in Iraq”. The reporter rolls his eyes, “but Mr. President, there is no more Iraq”. The president smirks, “another liberal media twister, trying to oscillate the facts, ‘you people’ just make fun of my legacy. I was given the mission to spread freedom by God during one of our more intimate consternations”. Reporter, “Does God still talk to you, sir”? George, “Well, of course he does, sonny, we have iced tea on the back porch every afternoon and watch the Gulf of Mexico at the edge of my ranch. He tells me that I have played right into his hands, I have given the world an image to remember and a model for future generations to use as a lesson”. Reporter, “What lesson is that, sir”? Bush, “Well, he said that he’ll tell me when the time is right, and I’m OK with that. I’m the ‘Lesson Giver’. I’m more concerned about moving that fence again, never thought I’d have ocean front property out in the middle of Texas”.
And so, the story goes that King George will remain clueless until “God” is ready to reveal what the world REALLY learned from Bush, the Lesson Giver.
What legacy would you write for King George?
My first thought is that King George may just extend the “border fence” around the rest of Texas to protect his sorry butt. All those border guards will have to protect “Winkie Country” for him.
The Bushes would be moving to Preston Hollow, where some of the richest Texans live, the first lady’s press secretary said.
The White House has declined to give the address of the couple’s new home. But property records show that Robert McCleskey, a Bush family friend, bought an 8,500 square foot (790 sq m) house worth $2.1m on October 1.
McCleskey said he could not say for whom the home was bought. It is on a cul-de-sac with six other houses.
A gate at the top of the driveway affords some privacy to the four-bedroom house, which was built in 1959 and has a wide front yard and dark shutters. The home is described as having “four and a half” bathrooms, a wet bar and a fireplace.
According to news reports, President George W. Bush and wife Laura will make their home in Preston Hollow in Dallas TX. What used to be referred to as the “Countdown to Crawford” has become the “Countdown to Preston Hollow”.
The house is located at 10141 Daria Place in Dallas and its estimated value is $2,078,660, according to the Dallas Central Appraisal District.
News reports say that the adjacent house on the cul-de-sac is expected to house Secret Service agents, and with all the attention the house is receiving from visitors and passersby, the once-quiet neighborhood may not be quiet for much longer.
And those rocking chairs are an annoying symbol of the comfortable retirement he anticipates, after being such a lousy president.
President-elect Obama recently said, “if I found out that there were high officials who knowingly, consciously broke existing laws, engaged in coverups of those crimes with knowledge forefront, then I think a basic principle of our Constitution is nobody above the law.”
Attorney General-designate Eric Holder recently said top Bush Administration officials “authorized the use of torture, approved of secret electronic surveillance of American citizens, secretly detained American citizens without due process of law, denied the Writ of Habeus Corpus to hundreds of accused enemy combatants, and authorized the use of procedures that both violate international law and the United States Constitution.”
The Bush administration has refused to investigate its own crimes and President Bush may issue blanket pardons before he leaves. President Obama must appoint a Special Prosecutor – ideally Patrick Fitzgerald – to fully investigate these crimes and prosecute those responsible to demonstrate that we are truly a Nation of Laws and no one – including the President – is above the law.
There are so many hiding places in Texas – the secret service assigned to protect King George will have their work cut out for them. Whether he opens a ‘shoe store’ or a ‘fast food’ cholesterol joint, The King in exile will not be hard to find. His supporters, on the other hand, are fleeing to the woods.
BUT WAIT! They had to buy another multi-million dollar home for the Secret Service, Hmmm, my tax dollars are being spent to provide luxury and safety to the worst character ever upchucked by Texas … why oh
why couldn’t he have gone back to Kennebunkport? . There are rumors that a group of “Tinky Winkys” will set up another house on King George’s cul-de-sac to keep an eye on the Secret Service.
