Looks like someone can’t sprint to the finish fast enough.
With the NATO summit meetings consistently running two hours over schedule most of the day, President Bush abruptly got up and left the last formal session of the day, not bothering to wait for an official summit photograph of all the leaders.

Bush is no fan of windy meetings and evidently had had his fill. He left behind Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates to represent him for the rest of the session, which concerned NATO operations in Afghanistan, but his departure was so sudden and unexpected that he left some of his motorcade behind, inculding his press pool, when he got into his car and headed back to his hotel.
This a day after incurious George tried unsuccessfully to cut short a press conference with Romanian president Traian Basescu, a faux pas that flies in the face of the tradition of allowing the host to determine when the presser is over.

Sprint faster, George! Faster! In fact, if you just want to go ahead and quit now, I think that would be OK with just about everybody in the world.
