SHOTLIST 1. US President George W. Bush walks to podium 2. SOUNDBITE: (English) George W. Bush, US President: "Good morning. Last night I had a warm conversation with president-elect Barack Obama. I congratulated him and Senator Biden on their impressive victory. I told the president-elect he could count on complete cooperation from my administration as he makes the transition to the White House. I also spoke to Senator John McCain. I congratulated him on a determined campaign that he and Governor Palin ran. The American people will always be grateful for the lifetime of service John McCain has devoted to this nation, and I know he will continue to make tremendous contributions to our country. No matter how they cast their ballots, all Americans can be proud of the history that was made yesterday. Across the country citizens voted in large numbers. They showed a watching world the vitality of American democracy and the stride we have made toward a more perfect union. They chose a president whose journey represents a triumph of the American story. A testament to hard work, optimism and faith in the enduring promise of our nation. Many of our citizens thought they would never live to see that day. This moment is especially uplifting for a generation of Americans who witnessed the struggles of civil rights with their own eyes; four decades later, see a dream fulfilled. A long campaign is ended and we move forward as a nation. Embarking on a period of change in Washington, yet there are some things that will not change. The United States government will remain vigilant in meeting its most important responsibility: protecting the American people. And the world can be certain this commitment will remain steadfast under our next commander in chief. There is important work to do in the months ahead and I will continue to conduct the people's business as long as this office remains in my trust. During this time of transition I will keep the president-elect fully informed on important decisions. When the time comes on January 20 Laura and I will return home to Texas with treasured memories of our time here, with profound gratitude for the honour of serving this amazing country. It will be a stirring sight to watch President Obama, his wife, Michelle, and their beautiful girls step through the doors of the White House. I know millions of Americans will be overcome with pride at this inspiring moment that so many have waited so long. I know Senator Obama's beloved mother and grandparents would have been thrilled to watch the child they raised ascend the steps of the Capitol and take his oath to uphold the constitution of the greatest nation on the face of the earth. Last night I extended an invitation to the president-elect and Mrs Obama to come to the White House and Laura and I are looking forward to welcoming them as soon as possible. Thank you very much." 3. Bush walks away STORYLINE: US President George W. Bush fully embraced the election of Democrat Barack Obama as his successor on Wednesday, paying stirring tribute to the election of the first U.S. black president-elect and hailing the campaign of change that led Obama to victory. Bush promised Obama his "complete cooperation" during the Democrat's 76-day transition to the White House. The president said he would keep Obama informed on all his decisions between now and January 20, and said he looked forward to the day - soon, he hopes - that Obama and his family would take him up on his offer of pre-inauguration White House visit. The defeated leader of his own party, John McCain, won accolades not nearly so glowing with Bush hailing his lifetime of service to the US.

What an admirable statement! There is not the tiniest speck of the partisanship that is everywhere in our current administration. Instead, the emphasis was on the smooth continuity of our government, now under new leadership. Then he said that our country could be so proud of the historic development, that an African-American man was chosen president. The Republican party does not need to be as hyper-partisan and racist as it is today. Good Republicans can reclaim the noble heritage contained in these remarks.

He should've spoken up after Obama got sworn in and GOP was openly out there spreading hate and racism... But, GWB, with all his faults, was a REAL STATESMAN... in the end he knew country should be above politics when the time comes... compare that with KGB agent we have now in the White House...

For all that Bush is and ever will be, for all the things he said and did that I believe he was wrong on, he is a decent human being. Unlike the absolute cunt that occupies that office now. Namely the criminal known as Donald Trump.

I love how President Bush doesn't point fingers, show anger, and make a fool of himself like president 45 does. I simply dont respect "45". He doesnt show repect for others so I will not or ever show respect for him. But im just commenting about how presidential and respectful Bush is in welcoming the new president into the white house i totally respect his respect lol.

The world changed a lot under Bush’s two terms. He was hated, he made mistakes, but in hindsight he’s an honourable and classy man. The nightmare of this bastard in power now has been a continuous shock. Each and every day division between people goes on. The day he’s no longer President can’t come soon enough.

There were no conservatives republicans marching in the streets wearing vagina hats destroying private property unlike democrats and leftist lunatics in 2016.
William G (26 дней назад)
If a Democrat wins in 2020, Trump will refuse to congratulate him/her. He will refuse to help that new president with the transition period, even though Obama willingly helped Trump, Bush willingly helped Obama, etc.

Sarah Palin represents what the Republican base is all about. Some say she is a dingbat and loonie tune but that's not true. She is a true republican. Think what you want about her erratic and unusual crazy behavior with her screecher's voice but she is a true republican. Some say she has a crazy family always getting arrested but that's not true because she is a true republican. Those are the Democrats trying to make her look ridiculous and stupid. Sarah should run for president so the far left media can make fun of her stupidity. She wholeheartedly endorses another idiot as some Democrats say by the name of Donald Trump. She believes in our Lord Jesus Christ. I think he talked to her a few times and told her to run for VP. She knows the Lord will guide her into the future and make her see Russia. Excuse me for a minute... I have to take a wicked shit. I hope this one doesn't have Sahra's eyes.

He was raised by a gentleman (Nr. 41) and a loving mother (Barbara). But Donald Trump's dad taught Jr. how to buy properties under "fake" names from those he now pretends to defend and promote. Trump also asked journalists to publish articles revealing the personal and family secrets that a CEO had shared with Trump in tears without mentioning him as a source. Pathetic. To do that is already being cursed. (The above-mentioned journalist refused to do so, as he explains in recent Bloomberg article (published last Sunday I think...).

Didn't vote for this guy, but served under him. And was proud to do so. I guess I'm cut from a different cloth than most. While many laughed when the Iraqi threw the shoe at him, I was pissed. "How dare you throw a shoe at "MY" President. In light of current circumstances, and never believing I would say this, I miss this guy. We have all had our favorites, and we have all disagreed with several former Presidents. But never in the history of our Nation have so many lost faith in the Office of President as it is today. No matter which side of the isle you sit on, you must agree that our political landscape looks like shit to the rest of the world. That's not good. President Bush outclasses President Trump at every level. Again, I didn't vote for this guy but he owned his mistakes, held himself accountable, and held others accountable when shit hit the fan. I will always respect a man who practices humility while in possession of power. Him and his wife maintained a level of credibility and respect to the office. Mrs. Bush was a class act, still is. That's not a dig at the current first lady. I think Mrs. Trump got dealt a bad hand. She's playing it out with grace and dignity. I never liked Donald Trump. But I will always support the Office of President. I hope and pray he wakes up one day and realizes that he needs to consult and listen to his staff as well as humble himself sometimes while accepting advice, counsel or suggestions. I will never hope our President fails. That's not why I wore the Uniform. I'm an American. And being Americans we have the right and the ability to disagree. But as Christian Americans (for those that are), we are charged to do so respectfully and with grace. Sadly, it seems those days are gone. Heck, even an Atheist can disagree and show respect while voicing that opposition. Either we need to clean this mess up, or close our living room blinds, because the rest of the world is watching.

Wow, for all his faults I cannot remember seeing this speech at all so moving and gracious, wait. Now. Theres a point, has someone explained to trump he will have to give up the white house after 4yrs?

Bush made a few mistakes as president, but even in the worst points of his presidency he delivered an inspiring speech with class to America. If Trump does this to a Democratic President-elect, he will fail miserably.

And he got the right door from the first attempt! :) Seriously, a class act. Wish all his presidency, albeit not so disastrous as often berated, had more moments like this.

Though he was pretty ignorant for being in the office, Bush was presidential, just like many presidents. With the exception of our current one.
