No. Look, we understand that there are some domestic issues involved here. And we respect King Adbullah's decision to postpone it, postpone the meeting for a couple weeks. And we look -- the President looks forward to meeting with him the first week of May.
Press Secretary, Scott McClellan, Aboard Air Force One En route Buffalo, New York, upon being asked if President Bush feels snubbed by Jordan King Adbullah's decision to postpone a meeting with him, following his unprecedented support of Ariel Sharon's Middle East policy that differed from his original "roadmap" and excluded Palestinians. Aside from the question being stupidly phrased, the reality is that regardless of whether President Bush feels it or not, he was snubbed. Tough shit Tootsie.
