Please Define Joyous

In a speech before the Conservative Political Action Conference this week, Bush called his presidency a "joyous experience." I used to think he was just slightly on the wrong side of reality, but this comment has made me realize how certifiably delusional he is. How could a president who presides over 9/11 and a protracted war in which more than 4,000 American and countless others have died call his tenure joyous? Isn't that a complete insult to all the families whose children and spouses have come home in caskets? Has his tenure been "joyous" for post-Katrina New Orleans residents that have been ignored by his administration?

I could understand (although disagree) if he proclaimed that his administration had done "the right things" over the past 7 years. But to call it joyous is beyond disrespectful to all the Americans who have lost their lives and livelihoods as a result of his administration.
