Obama blink-communicating during the debate?

During last night's debate did anyone else notice 0bamugabe was communicating with someone off stage (his handlers/ Axelrod, Mooch etc.) by very deliberately blinking once (for Yes?) or twice (for No?)? Most video segments of OBozo waiting to rebut Romney seem to have some evidence of this, I know it was not just imagined.

What theories do you have on the types of questions he was answering? (This could be fun!)

"..it's a natural reaction because of that nerve that runs from your a** to your eyeballs...they blink excessively when your getting your butt kicked"

This can’t be fun without links to videos from the debate.

He was wearing a wireless earpiece and communicating by eye blink that he was understanding the answer he should give. Also, eyeblinks were used to turn the sound up or sound down. IMHO.

FWIW, I commented on the *live* thread, that I thought his face was twitching....and it looked like he needed a cigarette.

I didn't notice that, but I did see him flash the Queen of Diamonds.

He was blinking to Axelrod, Could you run and pull the fire alarm switch, so we can get out of here? This guy is torching my shorts off.

Did anyone notice his hair?
Looks like they were trying to straighten it a bit- as per
Sharpton.

Good grief, no.

0 isn’t smart enough to do that.

He was high on something.

His pupils were dilated, he was over-blinking and his eyes were downcast to avoid the bright studio lights.

I read that article this morning. Now after thinking about it for a few hours, it would make a good deal of sense that he is an addict. If true, this could easily be the reason he refused to meet with Netanyahu or any foreign leaders last week or when they were all here at the U.N. I am curious as to the last time he has met one-on-one with anyone who is not in his immediate circle.

His face WAS twitching. I saw it, too — the right side, in the second half of the debate. An involuntary tic, probably from stress.

One blink: Tell Davy that it’s over between Michelle and me.
Can he come by later?

Two blinks: Tell Joe that there’s really NOTHING going on between David Axelrod and me, and there he has nothing to worry about.

I, too, thought that the President was having nervous tics and that some of his facial movement was to disguise/calm the twitch.

I suspect zero’s drug use won’t really come out into the mainstream for many years - the rats won’t want everyone to know what they hid from us.

Kevin (hillbuzz) also thinks there is a possibility O has Parkinson’s - that would explain some twitches, why he looks ill, maybe medication to keep things under control ...

The University of Maryland Medical Center says one of the first symptoms of Parkinson’s disease is muscle tremors. These symptoms can be extremely mild, such as a twitching muscle in the face. The tremor can last a few seconds at a time to weeks at a time without stopping.

Could be Bipolar Disorder.

I have a relative on medication for this and one of his tells in a pronounced and distinctive facial tic.

I mentioned it here.@ 7:13:52 PM PDT...anyone wanting to see it could forward the debate to about that point. FR was very slow, so many of us posting blow-by-blow comments were getting *time outs* from the site being so slow. So anyone searching would have to account that several minutes before 7:13:52 PM PDT...the twitching occurred.

Jedidah, I agree with you....it was an involuntary twitch.

Kolb, your theory in nuts...I love it tho!

Lucky9teen, I'm reposting your great gif!

LOL, good ones all! I’ve been looking for video that captured what I saw but have not been able to find any (yet). These were slow, deliberate blinks and always preceded by a stare into the audience (same direction each time).
