Keith Olbermann talks to Margaret Carlson about the snub of President-elect Obama by the Bush administration with their request to stay at Blair House when their children started school. According to Carlson, they asked former Australian Prime Minister John Howard to stay there after the fact to justify it being occupied, and they cost the taxpayers a great deal of money by making the Obamas stay at another location due to the additional security needed. The hotel the Obamas are staying at did not already have the security that was in place at Blair House.
This is a small matter in the bigger scope of things, but just one more example of how Bush has managed to stay classy and never disappoint us with reinforcing what his real legacy will be right up until the end of his term. A petty man who never misses an opportunity to take a cheap shot when he has the chance and for good measure waste some taxpayer money in the process.
