He's just not that into you

Tomorrow Stephen Harper, George Bush, and Vicente Fox will sit down together in Cancun to discuss issues of relevance to all three countries as laid out in the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America.

Yesterday White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan announced it this way:

"The president had a good discussion with Prime Minister Martin yesterday," McClellan said. "That was the call that Prime Minister Martin had initiated really to thank the president on behalf of the people of Canada for the efforts of our coalition forces."
"The president looks forward to visiting with Prime Minister Martin and strengthening our relations."

And from FoxNews:

"Bush plans to spend less than 48 hours in Cancun, squeezing in bilateral and group meetings and a visit to the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza — a rare cultural detour for the president who normally keeps a tight diplomatic schedule on foreign visits."

Uh-huh.
Yeah, she called me ... I dunno, some name like Happy or Bambi or something ...oh fer sure I will if I'm feeling like it but it's not like I'm going to blow the whole day on her...I dunno, maybe visit some ruins or something later while I'm here...

Is anyone else mildly bothered by the fact that apparently Harper phoned Bush to thank Bush for the efforts of American troops? Aren't we in Afghanistan supporting them? Maybe it's just me, but that seemed odd.

Bazz, iirc, that thank you call was for the rescue of the hostages in Iraq.
And I don't think I'm gonna go down the road of pointing out that the hostages would never have been hostages if Bush hadn't invaded Iraq in the first place.
