This is really interesting to check out, some footage from CNN that catches Blair and Bush talking together about the Middle East crisis in a very candid manner. It also gives you an idea of how these guys, that have great impact on our world, talk about things !
You can watch the video itself (the link to it is in the second paragraph). It's not mind blowing but is an interesting insight into this little world of power struggles.
This footage and the Bush comments captured are discussed at the WashingtonPost.com with an Associated Press video that covers the G8 summit as well.
But as the Newsweek article points out, the way Bush seems uninterested in the whole crisis that is brewing in the Middle East, is the most shocking, disregarding his vulgar remarks.
But what was even more jarring about the remarks Bush made to Tony Blair at the closing meal of the G-8 summit in St. Petersburg was what they revealed about his views of Mideast diplomacy. Or, more to the point, his lack of interest in personally taking part in any of it.
Update : An eye opener article at the International Herald Tribune covers some other bloopers and typically Bush style behaviour and remarks. It would be funny to see if any other country would like Bush to represent them in front of the world !
