I still think he will OD on whatever antidepressant he is currently on. His little escapes from reality aren’t getting it for him any more.

~He sometimes can’t fake it.~

That’s a lot of “sometimes” on display.

The expression on his face tells what he thinks about the people he’s waving to, what a putz.

There was a sitcom back in the 90's that included a character played by Loni Anderson, a former beauty queen who's now "of a certain age" and has a new career. In one scene, she's teaching a young how to be a beauty queen. At one point she explains:

"and when it's time to wave to the crowd, all you have to remember is one, simple thing ... reaching up and twisting her wrist ... screw in the light bulb!"

Apparantly Obama missed that episode.

He’s probably just pissed because he has to wear that American flag pin on his lapel.

It’s such a bore having to wave at the morons who voted for me. Do it enough times, I start to feel like moron too. Jeesh.

They need to get in there and replace the battery pack - the old one is shorting out.

this is another mystery that has never been explained.

Has he ever written about or told of any major injuries?

I've long called him a PPP (Pretty Programmed Puppet) But maybe I'm closer to the truth -

He believes that it is beneath him to have to wave to the peons. It’s written all over his face.

that scowl that his wife has perfected is obviously an impression she has shared. He hid it the “I am above all this” for awhile... but, now it’s out! I’d rather see this than that fake smile....

Except for the one with the gold background, he seems to be squinting/grimacing because of either sunlight or photographic lighting.

[The president is supposed to be a friendly and folksy character, and waving as if he gives a shit helps to foster such an image. Usually, Obama pulls it off just fine, with a big happy grin. But sometimes, he just can't fake it, and the look on his face reveals how grudgingly and unenthusiastically he is performing this charade for us.]

Interesting commentary; on the 'wave, that is not'.

Obama has another interesting and IMHO, very irritating, body language MO. . .whereby he reveals either an insecure Obama; or simply, his arrogant self - or both - as he makes greeting.

While in 'handshake'; Obama's hand goes immediately to the 'others' shoulder, elbow. or back - or just, his hand on top of handshake, as he attempts, literally, to gain the upper hand or ommunicate dominance. Altogether, obnoxious. . .

And we know obnoxious, of course and as well, when Obama's fingers, get into his messaging. . .

Yes, this (and post 43) re the 'down-turn' mouth or 'upside down' smile per Obama; this is expression, we see so often. AmazingObama's 'facials' that always seem to betray his worst.

Michelle, also, has 'face' and expression, that invites speculation. . .and often, confirms the worst.
