Remarks by the President and Prime Minister Tony Blair in Photo Opportunity
On the Grounds of Camp David
3:23 P.M. EST
Q How is it going so far?
THE PRESIDENT: Pretty darn good.
Q How was lunch? Is it true that Churchill once came to this cabin?
THE PRESIDENT: That's exactly right.
Q How goes the get-acquainted session?
THE PRESIDENT: Good, John, thank you. Ambassador Johndroe was telling us where to go.
Q Sir, can you tell us the historical significance of where you're standing?
THE PRESIDENT: This is where Prime Minister Winston Churchill, the first visitor to Camp David, stayed. It's a huge honor for Laura and me to welcome the current Prime Minister and his wife. And we're about to have a press availability to answer all these difficult questions that you're throwing at us, John. I promised the Prime Minister that you in particular would behave well during the press conference -- and Fournier.
All right, we're actually now going to go for a walk of a couple miles.
Q Mr. Prime Minister, where's your coat?
MR. BLAIR: It's around somewhere, but actually it's a lot warmer than Canada.
THE PRESIDENT: You shouldn't have noticed that.
