bush's last press conference: full of disappointment

bush: 9/11, 2 wars, katrina: 'we had fun'
from guardian: It was eight turbulent years: 9/11, two wars, Hurricane Katrina and the worst recession since the 1930s. But President George Bush's verdict at his final press conference yesterday was: "We had fun." He and his team had many joyous days in office, he said. "And people, they say, I just don't believe it to be the case. Well, it is the case... In the darkest moments of Iraq and every day when I was reading the reports about soldiers losing their lives, no question there was a lot of emotion, but there were times where we could be lighthearted and support each other."
