Bush Legacy Bus unveiled today in Washington
WASHINGTON (AFP) - An exhibition slamming the legacy of US President George W. Bush was unveiled Tuesday in Washington in a 45-foot (15 meters) long, 28-ton bus parked just steps from the White House.
Emblazoned on the side of the bio-diesel powered bus are the words "The Bush Legacy," and bullet points to highlight, in the words of organizer Americans United for Change, "how eight years of failed conservative policies" under Bush have damaged the United States.
Interactive exhibits on the walls of the bus call for reflection on what the group has deemed the "worst policy failures" of the Bush administration, such as a collapsed healthcare system, the "endless Iraq war," record fuel prices, or the handling of Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
At the far end of the bus stands a petrol pump, with "Bush Cheney Oil" on top.
