The American leader, who has been condemned throughout his presidency for failing to tackle climate change, ended a private meeting with the words: "Goodbye from the world's biggest polluter."
He then punched the air while grinning widely, as the rest of those present including Gordon Brown and Nicolas Sarkozy looked on in shock.
Mr Bush, whose second and final term as President ends at the end of the year, then left the meeting at the Windsor Hotel in Hokkaido where the leaders of the world's richest nations had been discussing new targets to cut carbon emissions.
Our Shrub, ever the petulant little twit, has again given the rest of the world the finger. It's a national shame that he hasn't been impeached.
Only one Senator missed the vote today -- presidential candidate John McCain, who is busy on the campaign trail. McCain also missed votes earlier today on terrorism surveillance legislation. The Arizonan Republican's campaign did take the time this morning to lambaste Sen. Barack Obama for his alleged flip-flopping on
the surveillance issue, though at least Obama showed up for the vote today.
Yesterday marked the
two-three-month anniversary of the last time McCain cast a Senate vote, on April 8. The Medicare vote marked the 76th consecutive tallyMcCain has missed.
This man wants to be promoted to president, but has no interest in his current job of serving the American people. I may not be a huge fan of Obama, but at least I have reason to believe he'll show up for work most of the time.
