In a hush-hush ceremony in the Rose Garden, Bush was to turn over the mantle of Worst President Ever to current sitting President Barack Obama.

Bush also fretted that the upcoming sequester played a part in the changing of the guard.
"I know it took me an extra sequester or two to get through Yale, but c'mon, are we really gonna hold that against this guy ... learning is fun and mental."
The assassination of Osama Bin Laden not withstanding, analysts tabulated the remaining failures of the Obama Administration, and determined the surprising outcome.
"I can't believe I lost to this shmuck." Bush lamented, unaware that Senator John McCain was the Republican nominee who fell to Obama in 2008.
The ceremony concluded even though President Obama, who cited more pressing matters — failed to show.
Bush placed the golden ass on the empty lectern, shrugged and walked out of the Rose Garden.
