U.S. President George W. Bush took back presidential power after undergoing a routine colonoscopy Saturday.

The White House made the announcement more than two hours after Bush temporarily ceded power to Vice President Dick Cheney for the procedure at 7:16 a.m.(1116 GMT).

In a letter sent to both Senate and House leaders, Bush reclaimed his presidential power at 9:21 a.m. (1321 GMT).

Cheney served as acting president while Bush was under anesthesia during the colon screening.

The colonoscopy was conducted at the presidential retreat of Camp David, Maryland, while Cheney was at his home in St Michael''s, Maryland, 50 km east of Washington.
The colon screening lasted about 31 minutes and five small polyps were removed.

"None of the polyps appeared worrisome," White House spokesman Scott Stanzel said, adding that Bush is "in good humor and will resume his normal activities at Camp David."

After the colonoscopy, Bush had breakfast with some White House aides.
