Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
He forgot Poland!

Press reports claim that outgoing US president George W. Bush failed to contact any Polish politicians while bidding farewell to various heads of state at the end of his term of office.

President Bush made phone calls to leaders of the major global powers, writes the Dziennik newspaper, including Russian PM Vladimir Putin and President Dmitry Medvedev, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and President of France Nicolas Sarkozy.

The outgoing president also found time for a conversation with leaders of Denmark, Georgia and Greece. But he apparently had no time for Poland's politicians, claims Dziennik.

This is not the first time, one may say. Even after that celebration:

And he certainly didn't call Rudd (the Australian press has already commented on that). Did he call Olmert, or was the call "in the middle of a speech" in effect his farewell call?
