Bush Packs Up

Dubya may be many things, but a procrastinator he’s not: With 14 days to go until Obama’s inauguration, White House press secretary Dana Perino says Bush is already packing his things in preparation for his big move to Dallas. “The president’s style is always to be one that’s a little bit prepared early, and he and Mrs. Bush have been working to box things up,” she said. Perino added that Bush and the first lady don’t have a lot to move, so reporters shouldn’t expect to “see a big Ryder truck pulling up to the White House…They didn’t come with a lot of things; they didn’t bring a lot of furniture here. So mostly what they have are books, obviously their clothes, and then some of the things that they’ve picked up along the way on their travels as they’ve traveled.”
