It seems Texans can’t handle the pressure of summits if their dearly beloved ‘family’, the Bushes are anything to go by.
The above video reminds us of Bush senior’s embarassing moment in Japan 1992 when he ended up in the host’s lap after fainting under the pressure of international negotiations. Now his son joins him today in Germany after bottling out of this mornings G8 sessions with other leaders. Both tried to blame the host’s food for their problems. Charming. It appears that Texans just can’t cut the mustard then the pressures on.
The leaders were filmed yesterday evening on the terrace of their summit building, sitting around the table enjoying a beer. Bush is shown pouring his bottle of beer into his glass. Next thing we see is his beer shooting out over the top of his glass and all over the table. Bush rather embarassingly leans over and slurps up the excess, … from his glass.
These Texans just can’t handle their beer.
And on Climate Change, well ain’t that ‘some sort of cocktail Ms Merkel? I’ll have one of those!’ Bush may well have said.
