PRESIDENT BUSH: Mr. Prime Minister, the floor is yours. I'm proud you're here, and thanks for coming.Later on, a reporter asked if Bush liked the belt buckle Harper had given Bush as a birthday gift. Bush hadn't yet seen or heard about the gift yet – which meant that the reporter essentially ruined the surprise. As if Harper needed another reason to hate the media.
PRIME MINISTER HARPER: Well, thank you very much, Mr. President, for the invitation and for the kind words. And thank you for doing something I never thought I'd see, which is have the Canadian media stand when I entered the room.
