Barack Obama at an April 4th news conference, responding to a question by Austrian Television journalist Sonja Sagmeister:
It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There's a lot of -- I don't know what the term is in Austrian -- wheeling and dealing -- and, you know, people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics.
Uh, that would be German.

Will this get anywhere near the media attention devoted to George W. Bush's reference to "the Grecians"?

Bush thought Austria was where everybody said "G'day" all the time.
