Bush has “something to do tonight”

The G8 summit is currently underway in St. Petersburg and it’s been revealed that President Bush has been caught speaking into an open microphone during a lunch-time conversation with other world leaders.
I’ll give you a brief summary, missing out the boring bits;

On the Middle East crisis: “The irony is, what they need to do is get Syria to get Hezbollah to stop doing this sh!t, and it’s over.”
On presenting to the G8 leaders: “I’m just going to make it up. I’m not going to talk too damn long like the rest of them. Some of these guys talk too long.”
On the secretary-General of the United Nations: “What about Kofi Annan? I don’t like the sequence of it. His attitude is basically cease-fire and everything else happens.”
On flying to Washington from St. Petersburg: “You eight hours? Me too. Russia’s a big country and you’re a big country. Takes him eight hours to fly home.”
On sizes: “Russia’s big and so is China.”
On movement: “I just want some movement. Yesterday I didn’t see much movement. The desire to move.”
On leaving the summit: “Gotta go home. Got something to do tonight.”
Small talk with Tony Blair, the UK Prime Minister: “Yo Blair, what’re you doing? Are you leaving?”

It was also revealed that Bush drinks Diet Coke and that Tony Blair “absolutely” personally picked out a jumper given to Bush as a gift. I want to know what he’s got planned tonight though.
