Locked Door Hinders Bush's Escape In China

Image hosted by Photobucket.comIn Beijing, China, and wanting to conclude a press conference today, Bush said, "Thank you," and walked stage right to a large set of double doors. He grabbed the handle to open the door and abruptly laughed. The door was locked.

With a slow Jack Benny deadpan and then a shy grin, Bush faced the reporters and said, "I tried to escape....but it didn't work!"

As the reporters laughed, Bush exited behind the stage backdrop.

The incident was very human and even amusing. You can read about it and even watch the video. But first you have to go to the BBC.
