We're Going to Miss You, Too

Unlike some of Bush's earlier misstatements, this one was supposed to be a joke.

At the 2008 G8 summit in Japan, President Bush attended a private meeting with other world leaders to discuss carbon emissions.

Then he reportedly punched the air and grinned while Britain's Gordon Brown and France's Nicolas Sarkozy stared at him in shock.
