Our Prez was down in Russia with his peeps for the G8 summit
. Here is the Dudya uncut, showing off his dipolmatic skillz
Bush to Putin: I gotta leave by 2.15. They want me out of town so they can free up your security forces.
Someone asks Bush whether he wants someone to prepare his closing remarks for the end of the G8 summit.
Bush: No. Just gonna make it up. I'm not going to talk too damn long like the rest of them. Some of these guys talk too long.
With the camera focused elsewhere, it is not clear to whom Bush is talking, but it is thought to have been President Hu Jintao of China.
Bush: Gotta go home. Got something to do tonight.
Go to the airport, get on the airplane and go home. How about you? Where are you going? Home? This is your neighbourhood. It doesn't take you long to get home. How long does it take you to get home?
Reply is inaudible
Bush: Eight hours? Me too. Russia's a big country and you're a big country.
At this point, the President seems to bring someone else into the conversation.
Bush: It takes him eight hours to fly home.
He turns his attention to a server.
Bush: No, Diet Coke, Diet Coke.
He turns back to whomever he was talking to.
Bush: It takes him eight hours to fly home. Eight hours. Russia's big and so is China.
Tony Blair approaches.
Bush: Yo, Blair. How are you doing?
Blair: I'm just . . .
Bush: You’re leaving?
Blair: No, no, no not yet.
And to think, we have two more years, oh joy!
