Haven't seen Pres. Smartass in a while. Not entirely sure I like it coming from the Oval Office of course, but to me, this is really the likeable part of the GW Bush personality.

"I want to thank you all for your hard work in the campaign," Bush informed the reporters. "I told you that the other day and you probably thought I was just seeking votes." This provoked general laughter.

"But now that you voted...I really meant it. I appreciate the hard work of the press corps. We all put in long hours and you were away from your families for a long period of time. But the country's better off when we have a vigorous and free press covering our elections, and thanks for your work.

"With that overt pandering, I'll answer a few questions."

The first query, related to Iraq, was in the usual three parts.

"Now that I've got the will of the people at my back, I'm going to start enforcing the one-question rule," Bush responded. "That was three questions." More laughter.

Not much later, another multi-part query came.

"Again, he violated the one-question rule right off the bat," Bush said. "Obviously you didn't listen to the will of the people."

I choose to believe that last line there is Pure Comedy Gold.
