Bush Pulls A Cheney On The New Mexican President

On Larry King last night, Bush was asked this:

KING: We're back with the Bushes. And the Mexico elections have been decided, apparently, and the conservative, Mr. Calderon, narrowly wins. Any thoughts?

BUSH: I look forward to working with whomever the Mexican people have elected and...

KING: Do you know him?

BUSH: I don't know him. Looking forward to getting to know him.

KING: Apparently he won. I'm glad to bring you the news.

BUSH: You sure did.

Now let's go to this news report :

Calderon wants to rely on Mexico's many free-trade accords to create jobs and crack down on rising crime, and says he'll try to smooth U.S. relations without letting Washington dominate. "I want to establish a very constructive relationship without bowing my head and lowering my eyes to the Americans," Calderon said in heavily accented English during an interview with The Associated Press. "I have met with President Bush several times. I have interviewed with President Bush and several members of the American Congress, and I know it's possible to establish a more constructive relationship, and that would be very good for both countries."

Bush said it with such certainty that it makes one wonder.

(h/t Dino) I'll post the video later.
