The White House China of President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush is offered in this Important Presentation.
FIRST LADY LAURA BUSH PRESENTS THE OFFICIAL CHINA OF LAURA AND GEORGE BUSH JUST NINE DAYS BEFORE THE ARRIVAL OF PRESIDENT-ELECT BARAK OBAMA AND MICHELE OBAMA
Total Press Scrutiny was avoided by President George W. Bush, with the Intriguing late arrival date of the 2009 Official White House China, by Lenox, Inc. By arriving during the George W. Bush Administration, with only 9 days to go until Inauguaration Day - January 20, 2009, Near Total Press Attention was Focused on Barack and Michelle Obama, as opposed to Scrutinizing each and everything that the Overzealous Press seem to specialize in – that being - looking hither and yon for every tidbit of Bush activities that the Press thought it was their duty to dig up - even if their attention might better be focused on more Important Domestic and International matters. But, when all was said and done the President and First Lady spent zero tax-payer dollars on this Half-Million Dollar Porcelain purchase. All 320 Official State Dinner Pieces were bought and paid for by Donations from Friends of President George W. Bush.
