This does not seem to be getting much traction in the US press, surprise..surprise...

After draggind down any serious talks on carbon emissions and pollution control, George had something to say before he left his final G8 summet.

The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."

He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock

Bush insults G8

I know this is a short diary...but what more needs to be said?

UpdateWOW....Thanks for putting this on the Rec list!  This really is only being reported by the UK press at this time. WE need to get the story out there to see if the MSM might pick it up. Not even the CBC seems to have it (and they don't hesitate to show Bush in a bad light. So...pass this story around. Share it. Make it known.

UPDATEII: Wonkette has it! Front page...maybe we'll see a few more

UPDATEDIII The Huffington Post now has it and Drudge has it front paged.

UPDATEDIIII This WAS on the front page of the Drudge Report. It has now since dissapeared.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
