ARTESIA, N.M. (AP) - Former President George W. Bush says he's
relieved to be out of office.
During a reception today in Artesia, N.M., Bush told the crowd
that he no longer feels what he calls "that great sense of
responsibility that I had when I was in the Oval Office, and
frankly it's a liberating feeling."
Bush was invited to speak at the ceremony for Artesia High
School seniors receiving scholarships from the Chase Foundation.
He received a warm welcome in the southeastern New Mexico
community and after his speech he was presented with a sculpture of
an eagle taking flight. The sculpture will be dedicated at City
Hall on Memorial Day in honor of Bush and America's veterans.
Bush joked about walking his dog in his new North Dallas
neighborhood and picking up after him -- proof life is returning to
normal for the former president.
