Waving Goodbye

Of all the photographs amassed during the inauguration of Barack Hussein Obama's white-slavery sharia socialism, this is my favorite (source): President Obama and VP Biden with their wives waving goodbye and good riddance to former President Bush -- mark that, former President Bush -- as Marine One delivers him on a one-way trip to who-the-hell-cares-where, Texas.

Goodbye, George W. Bush. Don't let the chopper blades slice you on the way out.

And snarks aside, here's a really good reason for rejoicing:

President Obama signed executive orders Thursday directing the Central Intelligence Agency to shut what remains of its network of secret prisons and ordering the closing of the Guantánamo detention camp within a year ... [T]he orders bring to an end a Central Intelligence Agency program that kept terrorism suspects in secret custody for months or years, a practice that has brought fierce criticism from foreign governments and human rights activists. They will also prohibit the C.I.A. from using coercive interrogation methods, requiring the agency to follow the same rules used by the military in interrogating terrorism suspects ...
Goodbye and good riddance indeed.
