President George W. Bush to President Barack Obama
Jan. 20, 2009

There will be trying moments. The critics will rage. Your “friends”
will disappoint you. But, you will have an Almighty God to comfort you, a
family who loves you, and a country that is pulling for you, including

compassion of the people you now lead.
