(h/t My Left Nutmegger for the vid)USA Today:

President Bush welcomed the press back to the White House this morning before he cut the ceremonial ribbon and invited correspondents to ask questions that he had no intention of answering.

"Let me cut the ribbon ... and then why don't you all yell simultaneously -- really loudly -- and that way you might get noticed. I'll listen, internalize, play like I'm going to answer the question and then smile at you and just say God, thanks, thanks for such a solid, sound question," Bush said at the end of his remarks.

And that would be different from other Bush pressers...how?
