Just like old times - boot lickers and buffoons

I'm not going to miss these two nor their old chum John Howard. AFP:

President George W. Bush praised three "true friends of the United States" as he awarded the nation's highest civilian honor to Tony Blair, John Howard and Colombian leader Alvaro Uribe.

The three men were given the Presidential Medal of Freedom at a ceremony at the White House in the final days of Bush's presidency.

"This afternoon I'm pleased to award the Medal of Freedom to three extraordinary leaders," Bush said.

Each of the men was "a true friend of the United States who met historic challenges with great tenacity, and who provides a lasting example of statesmanship at home and abroad," he said.

Blair and Howard were Bush's staunchest allies in the 2003 US-led invasion of Iraq, and the outgoing president paid lengthy tribute to each of them and their "firm adherence to the principles of freedom and democratic values."

"They're the sort of guys who look you in the eye and tell you the truth and keep their word," he said.
Um, sure. Too bad all of the "truth" was a pack of lies and distortion. Doesn't The Poodle have to grab coffee for some Wall Street execs or something?
