Nixon in China
Via Exposure Compensation comes the top images from the Bush era, generally of him gurning as he makes a gaffe. Check out the emotion on Bush's face as he prepares to make his farewell conference here. However, my favourite is of Bush choosing the wrong door to leave a conference room in China.
