Great clip, thanks for the link.
Yes, he looks worried, but I think that's the face he's trying to present. He's trying to look concerned. The funniest part is where he talks
about Colorado Springs and NORTHCOM, and says "I need to learn more about how that works." It sounds plausible enough for the average
Bush-believer, I imagine.
And yes, Chertoff looks like he's minding a teenager or something. He's visibly uncomfortable when Dubya goes off script. Aren't all of the
prez's people scared when he does that? God knows what he'll say when he doesn't have a script or an earpiece. Personally, I think Chertoff comes
across looking like an even bigger cheeseball. He's got 'incompetent doofus' written all over his face.
But this scene isn't overtly weird. I think he flipped the comment about his 'entourage' fairly well, making it sound like a joke. Considering
how bad his extemporaneous speech abilties are, I'd say his people probably gave it a 7 out of 10. All they want is for him to not look too stupid,
which he doesn't really.
