The phrase 'burdens of the office' is overstated," President Bush said today at his 47th and final presser.

"You know, it's kind of like, 'Why me?'" he said, mimicking someone in whiney self-pity. "'Oh, the burdens,' you know. 'Why did the financial collapse have to happen on my watch?'

"It's just -- it's pathetic, isn't it, self-pity," he said. "I tell people that, you know, some days happy, some days not so happy, every day has been joyous. And people, they say, I just don't believe it to be the case. Well, it is the case. Even in the darkest moments of Iraq, you know, there was -- and every day when I was reading the reports about soldiers losing their lives, no question there was a lot of emotion, but also there was times where we could be light-hearted and support each other."
