REMARKS BY THE PRESIDENT IN PHOTO OPPORTUNITY WITH METRO LAW ENFORCEMENT Dwight D. Eisenhower Executive Office Building Steps
10:25 A.M. EST
THE PRESIDENT: Well, first of all, you guys look good on the steps here. (Laughter.) Maybe you should just stay all day.
I want to thank you for all the help you've given us these last eight years, in all my many movements and, often times, in very crowded times of the day and difficult circumstances, and I'm very, very grateful to all of you. And before I left I just wanted to have a chance to get everybody together and say thank you.
I've had a wonderful time these last eight years. And I was able to do my job in no small measure because of what you did and I hope you'll always be glad that you did it. I thank you very, very much. Merry Christmas.
