Bush's legacy:

The penultimate segment on ABC's World News tonight was about three colleges competing for the chance to have the George W. Bush library.

It ended with the reporter saying "Once Mr. Bush give up the bully pulpet, his library will help shape his legacy".

While he was saying that, the following static images were shown (with modest panning).

(1) Bush standing with the fireman at "ground zero".

(2) Bush holding a turkey while in some sort of uniform (when he went to Iraq near Thanksgiving).

(3) Bush standing below the Mission Accomplished banner.

(4) Bush looking out the window of Air Force One while flying over areas affected by hurricane Katrina.

Some legacy.


Do you think the editor(s) responsible for putting the segment together may have used those images on purpose, to inject some snark into the piece?

One can hope.

George W's library will have more book ends than books.

If I'm not mistaken, the turkey Bush is holding is plastic, not a real turkey...stagecraft.
