President Bush Says Farewell

A great man addressed the nation tonight. With class and humility, President Bush said farewell:

I thank the American people for the trust you have given me. I thank you for the prayers that have lifted my spirits. And I thank you for the countless acts of courage, generosity and grace that I have witnessed these past eight years.

Bush honored those who kept us safe since 9/11.
... America has gone more than seven years without another terrorist attack on our soil. This is a tribute to those who toil night and day to keep us safe -- law enforcement officers, intelligence analysts, homeland security and diplomatic personnel, and the men and women of the United States Armed Forces.

Our nation is blessed to have citizens who volunteer to defend us in this time of danger. I have cherished meeting these selfless patriots and their families. And America owes you a debt of gratitude. And to all our men and women in uniform listening tonight: There has been no higher honor than serving as your Commander-in-Chief.
President Bush will be missed. He kept us safe. Without regard for the relentless barrage of hate filled slanderous attacks, President Bush put country first and popularity last.

It has been refreshing to have a President who didn't follow the polls to find his way or substitute theater for leadership. President Bush came to Washington with sincerity, honesty, and the unique ambition to fulfill campaign promises. He understood that the Office of the Presidency belonged to the people and not to the occupant. And when he spoke, he said what he meant and meant what he said. We're going to miss this.
