You didn't really believe that pathetic press conference did you?... I've never seen a more pathetic, scared, overmatched kid. He can't even speak well from the podium. He fumbles with his water bottle and gets mad at reporters who ask tough questions. That's the same guy people have faith in to make the right decision on a GM...
Regarding his speaking...For some reason I always had this image in my head of both he and John York being well-spoken an intelligent. This image was shredded in London when I watched John Sr. speak at the Trafalgar Square fan rally. It was staggering how poorly he came off, like a senile old man. His pants were even belted up to his armpits, and he spoke to a crowd of mostly drunk adults like they were 3 year olds.
The Brits around me absolutely had a field day at his expense, and it definitely did no help to image of dumb Americans abroad.
