Live Blog: President Bush Booed at Inauguration

By Ben Cohen

As the inauguration of Barack Obama commences, George Bush received loud boos from the thousands of people in the crowds – a sign of just how unpopular a President he was.

The press also took a final swipe at Bush as editorials around the world trashed his Presidency as an utter failure. Said the French paper Le Monde:

“It’s hard to find a historian who won’t say that Bush was the most

catastrophic leader the U.S. has ever known,” the French daily wrote.

“One success: since September 11, 2001, there was no attack on U.S.

soil. But this sits alongside an interminable list of failures,

starting with the war in Iraq.”
