Yesterday during the closing lunch at the G8 summit, a stray microphone picked up a private conversation between President Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Bush is seen munching on a buttered roll and using an expletive to express frustration with Hezbollah. Watch it:
In another segment in which the president was apparently speaking to an aide who asked about his plan for upcoming remarks, Mr. Bush said, “I’m just going to make it up, right here — I’m not going to talk too damn long like the rest of them.” [...]
At another moment, Mr. Bush was clearly itching to return to the White House, saying to someone, “Good job, gotta keep this thing moving “” I gotta’ leave at 2:15 “” you’ll want me out of town so to free up your security forces.” .
“Gotta go home. Got something to do tonight,” Mr. Bush said, then, apparently turning to Mr. Hu, adding, “How about you? When are you going home?”
