Bush: I may be responsible for losing my poodle
http://rawstory.com/showarticle.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fne...

From the BBC:

Appearing at a joint press conference at the White House, Mr Bush was asked if he was responsible for the end of Mr Blair's premiership.

He said: "I could be", before saying he would work with his successor Gordon Brown, adding he was a "good fella".

(snip)

Asked whether he was "partly to blame" for Mr Blair's departure, Mr Bush joked: "I haven't polled the Labour conference, but, could be."

He added: "The question is, am I to blame for his leaving? I don't know".

And he rounded on British journalists asking about Mr Blair's retirement, accusing them of trying to "tap dance on the prime minister's grave".

2. I read a thread to that effect on DU earlier..
It was in quotation marks so I assume it was a quote. Bush apparently meant a meaning other than poodle. Poor choice of words.
