It's President Bush's own spin-doctors' picture of his "legacy". Frankly I don't know whether to mock or vomit. In the interests of brevity, I'll confine myself to the one cheap shot.
"Since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the President has carried with him a symbol of sacrifice and courage: a police shield given to him by the mother of an officer who died at the World Trade Center."
I can't help but wonder what a police shield is meant to be a symbol of. "Protego et ministro" hardly seems to describe what GWB has done for his country. "Fabricate diem, pvnc" would come closer, in spirit at least.
