Bush Leaves a Note for Obama

During his last moments at the White House, former President Ronald Reagan scribbled a note for his successor on a notepad with a turkey insignia that said, “Don’t let the turkeys get you down.”

Thus starting a tradition that George W. Bush apparently carried on today, leaving a note for Barack Obama. No word on whether it included a sketch of a turkey.

The tradition sounds a little like the old joke about Nikita Khrushchev.

And how is Bush this morning, reporters asked press secretary Dana Perino?

“He’s good,” Perino said, describing the president’s mood. “He’s the president of the United States, the way he always is. He hasn’t changed. He gave me a big kiss on the forehead.”
