British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, visiting the U.S., held a joint press conference with President Bush this afternoon. One reporter asked the two leaders if the "special relationship" between the U.S. and Britain had been damaged during the years when Tony Blair was Prime Minister. Bush assured everyone that the relationship was strong, and still special, and that he and Brown had a great personal relationship.
Bush then elaborated on why this should be obvious: "Look, if there wasn't a personal relationship, I wouldn't be inviting the man to a nice hamburger, or something. Well-done, I might add."
We're not really sure what Bush meant with that "well-done" comment, so let us know what you think in the comments.
