Bush delivers his "Farewell Address"

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

Finally. Finally. Finally.

And, he's got all his family, staff and friends in the White House for a little pep rally.

I can't promise that I'll capture every word the guy said -- and on some level, it doesn't matter.

It's over. He's done.

In five days, he'll be out of our lives. We'll be dealing with the disasters from his administration for a long, long time.

8:03 PM: And, of course, he leads with September 11th. He's never been the same since then...every morning, he received a briefing on terrorists. Too bad he wasn't paying attention to the briefing on August 6, 2001 when he was warned that terrorists were going to hijack planes.
