Minister Tony Blair after his arrival to the Bush ranch in
Crawford, Texas, Friday, April 5, 2002. Bush and Blair begin
two days of talk dominated by the rise of violence in the Middle
East. The war on terrorism, particularly Bush's plans for Iraq,
are also on the agenda as Bush hosts the America's closest ally

Well, if Arafat had it all planned, then Clinton played into his hand. So I agree with Bush (and Fleischer before he apologized): Clinton deserves blame.
Bush: "Howdya like this set of wheels, Tony? Can't beat a Ford truck, now can you?"
Blair: "I must admit I am impressed, Mr. Bush. Over in England we are such limp-wristed socialists with such high gas taxes that I could fit three of my government's biggest cars into the back of this thing. What do you call this, anyway -- a Ford Battleship with the diesel locomotive engine option?"
