For noen dager siden hørte jeg et Bush-sitat som nesten var for godt til å være sant. Et søk i Google gir imidlertid en mengde treff, så det er kanskje noe mer enn en vits. Washington Post gjengir historien på følgende måte:

“According to Timesman Jack Malvern, liberal politician Shirley Williams — also known as the Baroness Williams of Crosby — recently recounted to an audience in Brighton that “my good friend Tony Blair” told her the following anecdote: “Blair, Bush and [French President] Jacques Chirac were discussing economics and, in particular, the decline of the French economy. ‘The problem with the French,’ Bush confided to Blair, ‘is that they don’t have a word for entrepreneur.’ “”

“Entrepreneur” er selvfølgelig et fransk ord.
