Olbermann: Bush vacations as Middle East burns
Current British PM Tony Blair cancelled his vacation plans in light of the evolving and escalating Middle East conflict. But not President Bush...he's hanging on the ranch and letting Condi hold down the fort. Literally.
Check out what transcribed at a recent press conference.
Reporter: ""Have you spoken with Prime Minister Blair and Chancellor Merkel about this...have you spoken directly with Prime Ministers Olmert and Senora, and if not, why not?"
Bush: "Because Condi is handling those conversations, and shes doing a fine job of doing so."Olbermann recounts how another world leader once went on vacation during an escalating world conflict...and returned home just in time for WWII.
