Good for him. Obama tried to put on a 'show' to save himself but it's Crowley who is the winner!

That picture is so fake. If you look at it carefully, Joe Biden actually appears to be alive.

I sure hope he is willing to hit the campaign trail to get loser dems thrown out in 2010. He just may have an effect on some union votes.

I find BO’s body language in that picture very offensive.

I saw part of Crowley’s speech. Is there a video of it yet?
He said this has all been very hard on him and his family.
gates and obama should be sued for what they did to him.
Spit!!!

I don’t know. I’m sure one of the local stations have it. You’d think they would.

He just looks relaxed to me but I’m a woman and not used to reading men’s ‘body language’ while with other men.

I don't see relaxation in BO's shoulders at all. I see tension. Look at his arms on the armrests. He looks like he's faking the laid-back look and is getting ready to fly up out of his chair at a slight provocation.

Gates looks too tense, he's all hunched over.

Biden looks somewhat normal. Crowley is OK.

Every now and then Biden is able to pull off 'normal'...

Wasn't Crowley that sparked the debate. Wasn't Crowley that poured gas on the fire, either.
