The first time he did it to Hilary you might could make the argument that it was accidental but you would think he would be careful not to do it a second time.

Oh please! Are you listening to the WORDS he's saying? Try that next time you watch it.

HMM maybe just maybe (I know you will certainly tell me how wrong I am) he does that all the time, like pointing or talking with your hands. I know several people who do that with "that" finger but I don't take it as a #1 gesture and I know they don't mean it that way either. Oh well it seems you just want to find fault with Obama and if this is all you got well keep digging. You can find things wrong with anyone if you look hard enough. May the best person win this election and again I will stick by whomever it is, instead of finding things wrong with them I will look and dig hard enough to find positive and do my duty as an American Citizen and stand behind them and YES even if it is McCain who wins.

Whether he was scratching his nose or being flippant doesn't really matter. You would think his PR people would have tapped him on the shoulder and mentioned to him that some people (the press) might take that gesture the wrong way and blow it out of proportion.

"Sir, that might be a little habit you try to break..."

That's a bit of a stretch there, Froggy Moo. A bit of an unwarranted stretch.

Considering his poignant pauses and he makes these gestures, I see it as sarcastic comments made with the gesture as a direct insult to the person he is talking about. Additionally, the response he gets from the crowd makes it obvious that they KNOW what he is doing and saying and are enjoying it and he laughs in response (during the Hilary one) to their response. I think it's rather obvious, but I didn't drink the kool-aid either.

When he meets with Mwai Kibaki as US President, let's watch and see if his scratches his nose then.
