DescriptionYou recently described the vaguely Southern accent the president uses in speeches as “phony as his jaunt when he runs up and down Marine One.” What exactly is a phony jaunt?
Every time you see him climbing up or down stairs, he elevates his arms and does this pumping, trying to look like a well-trained and trim dynamic individual. It’s something he does all the time, particularly when he’s climbing up to a podium to speak or address a crowd. This president understands that he got elected on the basis of style and not substance, and I think he’s trying to preserve style.

Every time I see you on TV for Romney, I think back to 1988 when, as governor, you helped George H. W. Bush win the New Hampshire primary and then became his first chief of staff. Should Romney win this thing, what do you want to do?
Retire, play golf and ski. Really and truly. I’m 73 years old, I got into this because I was scared to death for my kids and my grandkids and I want to get Mitt Romney elected president so he can fix America.

What if President-elect Romney calls you and says, “I know that you know a great deal about nuclear energy, and I’d love for you to be secretary of energy.”
I’d say, thank you, Mr. President. I got you this far, don’t blow it. I’m going to play golf.
