President Bush knows something that you don’t: The Washington Post’s Michael Fletcher is all about the bling.
THE PRESIDENT: There you go. Now, the other thing is, is that the big money here is, of course, with the press corps. And I would fully expect you all to shop. (Laughter.) Fletcher, how about it?
Q Yes, sir.
THE PRESIDENT: All right, thank you. Good to be with you here.
But Fletcher disagrees:
He then uttered his funniest line of the day (to us print folks, anyway) about the real money being with the press corps and urged us to shop. But there was no time as we in short order loaded up and headed out.
