President Bush and other world leaders were caught on tape today (or maybe it’s yesterday in Russia?) in a candid luncheon conversation that was not meant to be overheard. The Associated Press reports on some of the more enlightening conversation at the luncheon:
As he chats with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Bush expresses amazement that it will take Putin and an unidentified leader just as long to fly home to Moscow as it will take him to fly back to Washington. Putin’s reply could not be heard.
“You eight hours? Me too. Russia’s a big country and you’re a big country. Takes him eight hours to fly home. Not Coke, diet Coke. … Russia’s big and so is China. Yo Blair, what’re you doing? Are you leaving,” Bush said.
