Bush Scheduled to Deliver Farewell Speech to Nation
President George W. Bush, giving his 47th and final news conference today in what he called "...the ultimate exit interview...", plans to deliver his farewell speech to the nation on Thursday night, January 15th.
Bush will deliver the speech, expected to run 10 to 15 minutes, from the ornate East Room of the White House. He will have a small audience of people in the room, chosen for their stories of personal courage.
White House press secretary Dana Perino said Monday that Bush will "uphold the tradition of presidents using farewell addresses to look forward — by sharing his thoughts on greatest challenges facing the country, and on what it will take to meet them."
Bush will speak in prime time, at 8 p.m. EST. The White House has requested airtime from the major television networks.
