In a news cast cut-in on IMUS In The Morning broadcast - MSNBC, the crowd on IMUS made these comments (paraphrased) observing Andrew Card's demeanor.
"He looked as if he had a couple of hooded gunmen off to the side"
... "He should have been sat down in front of the podium with a hood on with demands of the release of prisoners from around the world."
Or this, "... we see Andy get into a cab and drive off before the final, in cab, interview" (ala The Apprentice)
... "and the rest of the staff is being told, as they leave the room, our approval ratings are down so your task this week is to get them back up, and if they aren't up, we will go to the board room where one of you WILL be fired!"
