So long and thanks for the memories

It's only a few hours before George W Bush will be nought but a painful memory. Dave Letterman has marked the end of the Bush presedency with a recap of his "great speeches".

So just watch and enjoy, and know that once Obama takes office, such easy laughs will be no more:

In years to come the young will ask, so seriously, who was President from 2000 to 2008?

For the record, my favourite Bushism is:
"And there is distrust in Washington. I am surprised, frankly, at the amount of distrust that exists in this town. And I'm sorry it's the case, and I'll work hard to try to elevate it." --George W. Bush, interview on National Public Radio, Jan. 29, 2007

oh wait no this one:
"You know, one of the hardest parts of my job is to connect Iraq to the war on terror." --George W. Bush, interview with CBS News' Katie Couric, Sept. 6, 2006

ok, maybe this one:
"It's in our country's interests to find those who would do harm to us and get them out of harm's way." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., April 28, 2005

perhaps this:
"This notion that the United States is getting ready to attack Iran is simply ridiculous. And having said that, all options are on the table." --George W. Bush, Brussels, Belgium, Feb. 22, 2005

no, I'll leave him with this one:
"But all in all, it's been a fabulous year for Laura and me." -George W. Bush, summing up his first year in office, Washington, D.C., Dec. 20, 2001
