    Smile a Rose Garden statement? (About Bush)

    WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush asked Congress on Wednesday to permit drilling for oil in deep water off America's coasts to combat rising oil and gas prices.

    "There is no excuse for delay," the president said in a Rose Garden statement.
    Hi! What does "a Rose Garden statement" refer to? Is it a set phrase?
    If my memory serves me right, White House has a garden named "Rose Garden.

    Thanks in advance!
