STATEMENT OF GOVERNOR HALEY BARBOUR
“I want to thank President Bush for his service to our nation these past eight years. Our nation is more secure because of his unwavering leadership. Equally important for Mississippi, President Bush worked hard to help our state recover from the worst natural disaster in American history.
“Now, as President Obama has assumed our nation’s highest office I wish him great success for our country. His inauguration was uplifting and inspirational. I look forward to having a positive, productive relationship with him and his team.”
