The Rainbow Connection


Something I stumbled across that I thought I should share—President Bush, speaking at a March 9 joint press conference with Romanian President Traian Basescu:

President Bush. […] I'll never forget my trip to Bucharest–it was the rainbow speech. [Laughter] It was a mystical experience for me. It was one of the most amazing moments of my Presidency, to be speaking in the square, the very square where Ceausescu gave his last speech. And the rainbow that I saw in the midst of the rainstorm ended right behind the balcony, from my point of view. It's a clear signal that, as far as I was concerned, that freedom is powerful and—-

President Basescu. It meant the signal of destiny, Mr. President.

President Bush. Well, we'll see.
