The Eyes Have It: Obama
Blinks 1,000 Times More
than Romney During 1st Debate

Smart Politics [University of Minnesota], by Eric Ostermeier

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/6/2012 6:38:28 AM

The president blinked at a rate of 71 times per minute while speaking during Wednesday's debate - 1,000 times more than Romney (53 per minute). Mitt Romney almost universally received the nod as the winner of the first presidential debate - not simply for scoring the most political points, but also in terms of style. For while Romney seemed in his element, Barack Obama was criticized for appearing uncomfortable, grim, and dour - and was often caught looking down at his notes, particularly during split-screen shots. But there was another facet of the president's non-verbal communication

Very interesting. The blinking contrasts with the lackluster demeanor. Hillbuzz thinks Jarrett has him on beta blockers and other drugs to get him off coke. Shocking claim to some but not so much to me. Obama has always seemed to be on something to me even though I personally have not been around many druggies. Will we ever know with the propaganda media behind, before and all around him?

I thought that was a common body language trait for a liar.

Go to Hillbuzz.com. Scroll down(as of now on p.2)to the article"10 things to know about the Denver debate". Interesting take on why Obama was blinking and acting manic at the beginning. Traffic gets heavy there so you may have to try a few times to get in.

There could be another reason for the rapid blinking - a chemical one. A certain white powder when snorted through the nose does that to you.

My advice to the non-math types who try to write articles involving the count of something:

"Who blinked more times during the debate? Obama did - by a margin of a thousand additional blinks..."

Awkward, but far clearer.

Confusing headline - I even got out paper and pen to work out the math, and came up with Obama blinking 1.3 times more often than Romney. Until I figured out that they they meant that they COUNTED 1,000 more blinks on Obama's part than Romney's. Still, Obama blinked about 30% more than Romney, which is a lot.

But the article doesn't really state the significance of the excess blinking. Many moons ago, I took some acting classes and the teachers frowned on blinking as a distraction for other actors in the scene that are feeding off of your lines. If you watch some of the more classical actors, they blink very little or none at all on stage. Does it indicate the person is being less than truthful? Possibly, but more likely a case of nerves is the real reason.

I wonder if there is a timeline of blinks by candidate? I saw the blinking by both, but IIRC, Romney's blinks may have slowed as the debate progressed.

Good Morning site friends. Wife and I watched the debate very closely together. Though my sweetheart is a disabled Air Force Veteran, she is also a mental health counselor and human behavorial specialist with more years experience than we like to admit, serving and assisting our local law enforcement and court system with individual assessment and clinical treatment of criminals being processed through the system. This is what she saw. Obama is very uncomfortable, angry that his authority and position is being challenged, does not want to be where he is, intimidated by a one on one challenger unafraid to look him in the eye, hiding his inner feelings, issuing responses best suited for the moment, (whether true or false) repetative comments indicating signs of talking points or planned responses, uncomfortable with the subject matter, looking for an exit to a comfort zone, unsure of himself, and generally misrepredenting the facts (spelled lying) not knowing what is actually fact and what is fiction. Overall assessment would be to deny him parole pending further evaluation.
Straight from a pro folks, just wanted to share this with you. Looking forward to November 6th.

I was watching wishing I knew Morse code, thinking that surely with all the distracting blinking he was trying to send a secret message to his Muslim Brotherhood buddies or something. "Achmed, do not dispair. Our cause is great. Allah be praised."

Not getting bogged down in the headline, it seems that Obie was nervous, flustered, caught flatfooted by Romney's informed onslaught. And Romney was relentless, not giving an inch. Obie is not used to that.

He and his minions seriously underestimated the opponent.

With that blinking, you can almost hear him muttering "But, but, but...." as the quicksand engulfs him.

These comments, especially #15, have placed a very scary scenario on these events. What will be his response? Will it cause him be better prepared and more able to respond? Or will he just bow up and start with his Exec. orders and clear the room? We may not really understand the depth and breadth of his fear of blowing it. I'd hate to see him pitch a fit and make a glass parking lot out of Boston.

#18's description of Romney is a good sketch of the Western style of combat: focussed, planned, organized and relentless. As opposed to Obama's natural style, which is also the traditional Muslims style: quick, opportunistic bandit hits on a weak target, then melting away before the surprised target can hit back. Take away the element of surprise, and you see what you saw at the debate: hopelessly outgunned amateurs stumbling and being ground up by a disciplined fighting force. If only we could consistently apply those tactics to actual wars with Muslims, we'd never lose.

He didn't appear to be blinking so much when he was looking down so wonder if it was a tactic to throw Romney off his game. Given how low down and dirty he is, it wouldn't surprise me. You could tell he was pretty irritated at times when you saw his jaw clinch. He laughed at I inappropriate times as well like when Romney said he only picked losers. More than likely he was given the questions and only knew how to respond to them not everything that Romney brought up. All in all, very bizarre!

I noticed an odd and disconcerting habit of Obama nodding at Romney whenever Romney took Obama to task. It was like saying "You're right. I'm an idiot!"

Also, Obama's face is very long, like John Kerrey's face. Debate night, his jaw was clenched so much, his face was round. Very odd. Then his eyes were bugging out and didn't even look like Obama's eyes. Again, very odd.

Sydney Leathers was a girlfriend for hire and any old creep with a thousand bucks to spare could have had the pleasure of her companionship, such as it was. The news that Anthony Weiner’s former sexting partner sold her services via so-called “sugar daddy” Internet sites was not exactly shocking to anyone who has paid attention to the mores and manners of American youth in the past couple of decades. Popular culture has been so corrupt for so long that many young people are incapable of making any distinction between vice and virtue, categories that sophisticated people are expected to reject

Edwin Alemany is a career criminal and he had an EBT card. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. The Mass. Republican Party got it right in a tweet yesterday. Not everyone with an EBT card is a criminal, but it appears that every criminal has an EBT card. Of course Gov. Deval Patrick would dismiss this as just another “anecdote.” Please don’t ask why the state is supporting a guy who has 10 convictions at age 28, not to mention 52 citations on his CORI record.

Chris Christie and Rand Paul are in the midst of a food fight. Not literally, but very much figuratively. Their debate has devolved from one about warrantless federal surveillance programs to the question of which state, New Jersey or Kentucky, receives more “pork.” You can read some of the lowlights here. For the record, I’m with Christie on the original issue — warrantless federal surveillance programs — and agnostic on the question of who is the bigger porker. Both Christie and Paul probably would like to be president. Indeed, their food fight appears to represent the preliminary round

Two months ago, President Obama declared again, that the War on Terror is over. As if the side under attack can simply decide that the hostilities are ended just because they are tired of defending themselves. (Snip)And although innate prejudices cannot be legislated away, I think it’s safe to say that the hopes and dreams of the civil rights pioneers of the 1950s and 1960s have been met and some would say, wildly surpassed. But there are others whose thirst for revenge and reparation will never be satisfied: • Even though the practice of affirmative action

Anthony Weiner had a good life: a congressman who was a possible heir to the Chuck Schumer throne and married to the adoptive daughter of the Clintons. He had a personal net worth of nearly a million dollars, millions more in campaign donations, and a future written in political fantasies. So why wasn’t this enough? Everyone knows an Anthony Weiner. They don’t all run for political office or live their lives in the public eye. But they do have a good life that they are hell-bent on destroying. The disease of discontent is rampant in America,

The nation´s leading climate change advocate, former Vice President Al Gore, is creating a mini army of "climate leaders" to push governments and companies around the world to adopt policies aimed at reducing global warming. On Wednesday in Chicago Gore will host his second "climate reality leadership corps training" this year where his Climate Reality Project will show supporters how to talk about the issue and push for solutions to carbon burning. Just last month, he held a similar event in Istanbul where one attendee said she was "moved to tears" when Gore spoke about global warming.

The news that NBC is planning to film a miniseries on the life of Hillary Clinton may be interpreted in some quarters as just another lollipop being thrown by the network at its Democratic crush. The movie will star actress Diane Lane as the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state and will cover her life from the 1998 Monica Lewinsky scandal up until the present day. Though we are told the work would include “aspects that were both critical of Mrs. Clinton and supportive of her,” it’s not likely the network with a cable news outlet

That lawsuit was filed by attorney Gloria Allred on behalf of Filner´s former press secretary, Irene McCormack Jackson.

Delay Is Better than Defund

There has been a fair amount of discussion in recent days about whether Republicans should try to defund Obamacare. The instinct to do something about Obamacare is right. But Republicans can learn something from the American people. As polls have consistently shown, Americans like the idea of delaying—and of repealing—Obamacare. But they don’t like the sound of defunding it. In terms of policy, either approach would produce essentially the same result. (Whether the Obamacare exchanges are delayed for a year, or its exchange subsidies are defunded for a year, the result would be no taxpayer-funded Obamacare exchanges next year.)

Abbas said that no Israeli settlers or border forces could remain in a future Palestinian state and that Palestinians deem illegal all Jewish settlement building within the land occupied in the 1967 Six Days War. The forceful statements appeared to challenge mediator US Secretary of State John Kerry´s hopes that the terms of the talks,

Circumventing Congress and with no fanfare, President Obama last week issued an executive order enabling him to send an additional $500 million directly to the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank — much of which you can bet will wind up going to the Iranian-backed Hamas terrorist organization.

Karl Rove and more than one hundred Republican donors sent a letter to Republican members of Congress on Tuesday, urging them to pass a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would include, among other provisions, granting "legal status" to illegal aliens who meet certain criteria. Anticipating that lawmakers will face resistance to the bill when they go home for the August recess, the letter marks the escalation of a campaign in which Republican leaders and donors are pressuring House Republicans to act on an immigration reform bill.
