The Bushes took Putin on a speedboat tour of the choppy Atlantic waters shortly after his arrival on Sunday and they went to sea again on a fishing expedition on Monday morning.
Putin was the only one to hook a fish within sight of news photographers watching nearby. The Bushes clapped while a smiling Putin posed with his trophy before throwing it back, apparently for being too small to keep under local rules.
Well, that is certainly a promotion we could do with in Europe. When shall we see Mrssrs. Sarkozy and Durao Barroso landing a fish?
