4 years ago we worked to re-elect him. And tonight he's off the ballot for the first time in 14 years. He's doing the right thing to make this about the future- as the Obama/Biden campaign should have done from the get-go.
But anywho... I'll stand by our work in 2004 and the President's record. Blame Karl Rove all you want and Congress for hijacking spending- and Bush for not using his veto power - but at the end of the day, it's not about what America thinks. America is moving on.
Perino blamed the President's low 28 percent approval ratings in part on unpopular actions he's taken like proposing the 700 billion dollar financial rescue plan.History will judge a lot of things. The Bush legacy, and tonight. We'll just have to wait and see.
"And often when you do big things and you make tough decisions, they're not popular. President Bush understands that," said Perino. "When he goes home to Texas, President Bush will be able to look in the mirror and know that he was true to his values and true to his principles. And that's what keeps him going."
