Lame duck President George W. Bush may be going but he's far from gone.
Bush is papering the federal government with last-minue executive orders putting his stamp on everything he can and paying off debts to those who supported him during his controversial Presidency.
Outgoing Presidents often issue last minute rules that they not only hope will last long after they leave office but that will also not be immediately overturned by the incoming resident of the White House.
But Bush's last-minute glut of rules goes far beyond what has been done by other departing Presidents and often stretches the boundries of what may or may not be legal.
It's typical Bush and shows the outgoing President is not going quietly. He will be defiant to the end.
