Excerpt from "Observations after the Debate" at The American Sentinel website
A recurring and grating image throughout the debate was that of Obama looking down and snickering. It was a projection of a contemptuous attitude, the sort of facial expression worn by members of the “in crowd” in junior high school. I was waiting throughout the entire debate for Obama to let us all in on the joke, but he never did. Someone should have told Obama that he was not at one of Bill Ayer’s wine, cheese and brownie parties where everyone is in the same mindset.
John McCain by contrast looked straight at Obama. It seemed as though he were mentally noting holes in Obama’s logic and errors in his factual presentation. When he gave Obama backhanded compliments on his gift of gab, he expressed the thoughts of many that Obama was great with packaging but spotty on substance.
Someone should have told Obama that jotting on a notepad would have been far more effective than grinning and snickering. It would have conveyed the impression of a man thinking on his feet and attentive to his opponent.
I am waiting for a video to show up on You Tube of all of Obama’s snickers and smirks spliced together. It would make a nice sequel to the” Umm” videos.
