Bush describes Obama as "a good man"

world Updated: Jan 22, 2009 01:54 IST

Wishing success to Barack Obama hours after handing him over reins of power, former US President George W Bush has said "a good man" has taken oath of office.

"Today was a great day for America, and a good man took the oath of office," Bush said on Tuesday after reaching his home in Midland Texas from Washington.

"We all offer our prayers for his success," he said.

Obama, the 44th President of the US, has entered the White House at one of the toughest times for the country, when it is in deep economic recession and fighting two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
