Bush-Obama Summit

The current President and the President-elect met yesterday at the White House, the meeting lasted approximately 2 hours according to this story, “Bush, Obama Meet At White House”.

Here is a shot from the happy occasion,

I’m sure the 2 were very cordial though I would have loved to see what would have happened if Pres. Bush had kicked it up a notch and gone diplomatic (below) on the President-elect.

    notice how he’s got the tie off in the second picture…do you think it’s “george and ma’am” or the other way around…ya, judging by gas prices up until last month, it’s probably the other way around…

  4. Laz says:

    Since the high gas prices were blamed on Pres. Bush’s “failed energy policies” then we must also lay the blame for the recent drop in gas prices at the foot of his “failed energy policies”.

    Whatever the case may be, it’s great to be paying under $2/gallon…

  5. Bobbo says:

    It is great, and i think the low gas prices have actually been attributed to deflation…or the idea that people aren’t buying oil now because they expect prices will keep falling and they a) don’t want the oil they buy today to be worth less tomorrow, and b) don’t want to pay more now when they can get it cheaper later.

    I don’t know if the high gas prices were “his” fault…he’s written so many darned law-bending executive orders, it’s impossible to keep track of them all…the real problem is with bad regulation loopholes written by congress combined with bad regulation enforcement by the administration. It’s also our fault for being so addicted to oil as consumers.
    The bottom line is that while we’re paying less at the pump, our retirement and pension plans that are tied into oil stock are also making less, and our great state is making less in oil revenues…This situation truly is deserving of Vee-Yay’s classic (say it with me): “Nobody wins…”

  6. Oh no, after the third look I recognized that they are holding each others hands. What a game!?
