BBC journalist's diary of the bush Europe visit
Advertisements [?]
To Nato and the Bush news conference.

The president is wonderfully un-European - refreshingly so in the view of those of us who have worked in Brussels.

He is unsmooth. He stumbles over his sentences. He uses short, plain, sometimes almost babyish words, while the sophisticated multilingual Euro crowd prefer obfuscatory long ones.

And he gets a clear message across, like it or not. He has no need of spin.

It was interesting that on the White House bus back into town, the journalists did not need to compare notes or discuss the president's words and what they meant.

He reminds me of a 10 year old kid trying to fill in for his dad on "kid's day" at work.
