Bush Tries The Ol' Reverse Psychology - Tells London 'Bring 'Em On!'
Why do I think he's somehow less than sincere? Note how he still can't help telling people what they should
WASHINGTON (AP) - President Bush said Thursday he welcomes the massive protests expected in London during his visit next week because "I don't expect everybody in the world to agree with the positions I've taken."
"I'm so pleased to be going to a country which says that people are allowed to express their minds," Bush said. "That's fantastic. Freedom is a beautiful thing."
"The fact that people are willing to come and express themselves - I'm going to a great country," Bush said during a brief question-and-answer session in the Oval Office.
While saying that people don't have to agree with him, Bush said, "But certainly they should agree
with the goals of the United States, which is peace and freedom."
