Steve: Our guy in Washington

Gosh its great that G.W. Bush is "impressed with his leadership style" and proud that Steve was there (bought him lunch too... Score!), and "proud to have allies like Steve who understand the stakes of the 21st century." George was soooo proud of Steve, he had to say it a couple times. We should put that in ads during the next election.

Still, it's nice to know that part of the US government thinks we're not a hotbed of terrorism, even if it is G.W. Bush:"It just goes to show how safe Canada is," and "people ought to be rest assured that Canada is on top of any plots." Can we quote him on that? I guess it probably doesn't mean much when its coming from G.W.. It's all just a bunch of fluff that won't count for squat with congress, or FOX news.

My favorite line from the Globe article:

"...both men managed to avoid uttering the word "Iraq," a first at a White House news conference for years and a lingering point of sharp difference between Ottawa and Washington."

Of course they didn't mention Iraq; it doesn't really fit in the 'Gratuitous Ass Kissing" category of topics, now does it?

HarperBizarro has a great catch from all this; he contrasts a quote that Steve makes during this press conference regarding 9/11 and Canada's reaction with a quote from Jean Chretien who actually was Prime Minister at the time... nice. Plus ├ža change, indeed.

Anyway, from now on, I'm calling him Steve.
