"The President's position is that this should be about the athletes and not necessarily about politics," said White House spokeswoman Dana Perino.So why is he going then? If it's not about politics, surely he should stay away.
But in making the trip, he will be able to speak his mind to President Hu Jintao, spokeswoman Dana Perino said.Hasn't he got Hu's phone number? Can't he book a trip some other time?
And if it's not about politics, shouldn't this trip count as an addition to Bush's already record tally of goof-off holidays?
