CNN Shows Faces Obama Was Making During Healthcare Summit
Newsbusters ^ | 2/28/10 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 02/28/2010 7:30:12 PM PST by Nachum

To emphasize Barack Obama's frustration with what Republicans were saying at Thursday's healthcare summit, CNN aired a montage of the faces the President was making as prominent members of the GOP spoke.

Candy Crowley introduced the segment on Sunday's "State of the Union":

As we mentioned earlier, President Obama's face said a lot last week. I was in the studio where you can watch what which call an ISO, that's the camera focused only on the president as Republicans made their points. We wanted to share.

Were all of these faces made before or after he picked his nose on camera? Or while he was doing so...

Obooger.

Shoot, if they considered those 'faces of frustration', they missed the big picture! [they just wouldn't publish these...

I watched a you tube video today “Downfall” about another infamous leader. I had to sort through all the trash to get to the original where Hitler goes absolutely out of his nut.

I can see the same thing here with this mental case in the White House.

I tell you..I see the similarity in many things with Obama.

I think all it would take is someone to really challenge him and he’d go off right smack in front of everyone.

One commentor at that site had a very accurate tagline...

Liberals don't want a Bi-partisan bills they just want Bi-partisan support

That sums it all up right there.

As you watch, consider how much differently this would have been presented if it was about a Republican President's reactions to what Democrats were saying.

No kidding!

Surely, the President and his advisors will not be entertaining another "summit" between himself and members of Congress any time soon. This event showed his worst qualities, live and unedited. It will become fodder for all sorts of future election material from anyone running against him or other Democrats.

From the Newsbusters article, Noel Shepherd says “The President demonstrated a surprising lack of leadership...”

C’mon, Noel. Have you not been paying attention the past two years? Where would Obama have ever learned or even experienced true leadership? He’s never been in charge of a single thing his entire life.

Agitating on the barricades is not leadership. Being a part-time senator in Illinois and then the US is not leadership. Palling around with convicted terrorists like Dohrn and Ayers is not leadership.

I see (at least from the thread) they didn’t put up the one where right after Ryan from WI says that they aren’t listening to the people, and Obama decides at that moment to place his hand aside his head holding every finger but the middle on down... I’m sure you’ve seen him do this on many occasions - it was a “regular” feature during the campaign...

I honestly couldn’t tell if he was flipping off Ryan for bringing up what the people want, or at Biden who was sitting next to him for saying the statement Ryan turned against him...

I can remember my 2 year old doing faces like that when they could not get their own way.

So sad that this lying spoiled little child is the current person soiling the Whitehouse.

I tend to think he was livid with Paul Ryan nailing him on all points, so I think the childish gesture was meant for Ryna, don’t you? Remember that Paul Ryan owned the floor for a full 6 minutes. He was awesome.

This reminds me of a scene from “Americathon”. During the last few minutes of a telathon to save America, Harvey Korman
points to his crotch “ Dignity, I got Your Dignity”.

At the very least it shows someone who was never taught (even as a child) to keep their hands DOWN at their sides, or folded, etc... when speaking in public, or perhaps even more importantly when someone else is speaking.

By making so many movements when someone else is talking he can attempt to distract from the other person talking (or make inaudible comments - like when he rolls his eyes, or sticks up his middle finger and lays it aside his cheek like he is fond of doing).

I’ve also heard that when you lie you tend to touch your face, but I’ve known people with stage fright and the like who touch their faces unconsciously simply due to anxiety - not necessarily caused by deception.

There is a lot more one could say about his mannerisms both when speaking and when acting in an official capacity. One can also learn a lot by watching his movements in interviews and the like. He would be no good at a poker table, that’s for sure...

I’m sure there are some out there who have already studied his body language, and do so whenever he speaks... Me? I can’t hardly stand to EVER watch/hear him speak because his elitist attitude is so clear to see it makes me sick.

What Cathy Crowley didn't say, or doesn't realize, is that Obama's job title includes "playing poker" with some of the worst tyrants on the planet - several of whom have avowed to kill us.

Yeah, for the most part I’m like 99.9% sure it was for Ryan - it was timed almost perfectly when he slammed them on listening to the people. I know Obama was biting his tongue trying not to interrupt him. You could tell it was killing him! LOL

Ryan’s speech WAS 6 mins. of pure awesome! LOL Really proud that we’ve got a few good folks left here in Wisconsin! I hope people here are waking up a little after what Gov. Doyle has done to this state during his time as Governor (and what it’s done to Wisconsinite’s pocketbooks).

The President was obviously anxious and terribly uncomfortable.

That's because he is beginning to realize his "Cloward/Pivin & Saul Alinsky" playbook isn't selling to the American public - and the Republicans, for once, were on the offensive.

Oh, you’re in Wisconsin! Double proud day for you!!! Yes, indeed, Paul Ryan is a well versed and brilliant young man I’ve admired him for the past couple of years, when he first caught my attention on the floor of the House. He’s the congressman for some good friends of mine who reside in Jaynesville. I know he appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning and I’m just about to watch the program now. I TIVO’d it.

Very nice talking with you. Take care!!
