From the impromptu presser this afternoon:

And so I want to thank the former spinmeisters for joining me up here. Tell my people how to do it, will you? I mean, it's -- (laughter) -- but anyway, Laura and I wanted to come by and wish you all the best as you get to move headquarters for a while. Look forward to welcoming you back here in, I guess, six or seven months. Is that right?


BUSH: Nine months?

QUESTION: (Off mike) -- Mr. President.

BUSH: That's what you get when you bring your crackpot up from Texas. (Laughter.)

QUESTION: No comment, sir.
