Bretton Woods, Somewhere Between Peyton Place and Dallas

President Obama gave a masterful performance at the G20 Summit. Many participants characterized it as the most important world economic parley since 1944, when the postwar financial system was remade even as WW II raged on. That summit meeting, hosting all the allied powers, was held at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods, New Hampshire.

Meanwhile, in the sleepy Preston Hollow enclave of Dallas, Texas, where the booze flowed freely since the arrival of faux President and Mrs. Laura “Pickles” Bush, No. 43 watched for any missteps by No. 44. He was also taking bets on how soon before his old buddy Berlusconi made a move on that babe, Cristina Kirchner, president of Argentina.

The President was speaking to the press:

PRESIDENT OBAMA: "There's been a lot of comparison here about Bretton Woods... you know, last time you... saw the entire international architecture being remade,'' he said. "Well, if, if it's just Roosevelt and Churchill sitting in a room with a brandy, you know, that's an easier negotiation.”

W.: “Hey Pickles! Ain’t Bretton Woods that gated community just down the road from this here Preston Hollow??? Ah didn’t know Roosevelt and Premier Churchill met for drinks over there?!”

LAURA “PICKLES”: “Ah’m not sure George, honey …”

W.: “Hell, woman, check the INTERNETS, do the GOOGLE. If OHBAHMA – he KNOWS things -- says our Dallas, Texas neighborhood’s hosted a presidential summit, we oughta have those folks over for a barbecue …"

Really, that's all I have to add.

Strange thing, Preston Woods really is a gated community in GWB's Dallas neighborhood.
