Countdown: Bush Bolts After Photo Op At Middle East Peace Summit

icon Download icon Download

On Tuesday's Countdown, Keith Olbermann talked with Newsweek's Richard Wolffe about President Bush's failed foreign policy and his awkward cameo appearance at today's Middle East Peace Summit in Annapolis, Maryland. Looking confused and distracted, the president butchered the names of Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas *shock* and even needed guidance on where to stand with the two leaders for a photo op -- which was apparently the only reason he attended at all.

After all the hype and spin about how much President Bush cares about bringing peace to the Middle East, and how he's worked the phones and listened in preparation, our Commander in Chief took off after spending less than three hours at the summit.

The Seminal has five questions about the Annapolis summit.
