Is this some sort of new meme in interviewing? It's the second hard interview in a month with Bush where they're standing up so that Bush can get all up in the interviewer's face. I mean, look at the hand gestures Bush uses. In a normal conversation, if you had your pointing finger 8 inches from someone's face, you're being awfully aggressive. Watch as he dismisses questions, he swipes his hand 3 inches below Lauer's chin! Bush is attempting to intimidate the reporters into softer questioning. Very interesting.
I wonder if the interviewers are picking up on this and practicing against flunkies trying to throw them off their game like this.
