ABC NEWS ANCHOR CHARLES GIBSON TO SPEND THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 7 WITH PRESIDENT GEORGE BUSH
But will they cuddle?
President Bush took no questions after he and the emir of Kuwait made brief statements (see transcript) in the Oval Office. Afterward, CBS pooler Bill Plante asked: “You don’t want to take any questions?” When the president ignored this query, Mr. Plante said: “I guess not.” As the pool was being ushered from the room, Mr. Bush called out: “Pay attention to the speech.” He added: “You can’t fool me, Plante, you old pro. You old wily pro, you.”
