    Ok, so I've been looking at the photographs that show the bulge in the back of the president's suit, and the feeds from different networks at different times show the same thing, so its definitely not photoshopped. But there's definitely something there. I don't know about the credence of a device used to transmit audio, but to those who believe its so, go to cspan.org and check out Bush response around 40 minutes and 40 seconds into the debate. He pauses with about 20 or so seconds remaining in his response, looking directly at the CSPAN3 live camera, and says 'Let me finish' kind of under his breath-- he's not addressing Jim Leher the moderator because he'd have to be looking significantly to his left in order to do so (the podiums are angled more towards each other, and not directly at the moderator, as is the custom). Go look at this-- it'll take 30 seconds.

    Who is he talking to? He's addressing neither Jim Leher (who wouldn't have interupted him anyway, he had 20+ seconds remaining) nor John Kerry. It does actually seem like he's slipped and has addressed someone who had begun to speak to him over a microphone.

    The bulge in his back, the GOP insistance of having no cameras BEHIND the debators, and Bush's long pauses where he seemed to be off in his own world, lead me to believe something fishy was going on.

    Its been documented that reporters got microphone interference from a prompting device during bush's speech and during the Q&A session at the D-Day memorial in France. Its not a new occurence.

    Anyway since we entertained 'pengate' I think this deserves more mention that it has gotten on this board.

    Do you really think that the Bush campaign people are so stupid that they would overlook an obvious detail like this? Hell, for all we know that's a wrinkle in his shirt.

    I'm pretty certain that if Pres. Bush were wired, it would have not have been done in such an amateurish fashion.

    not to mention the fact that technology has certainly gotten to the point where a wireless receiver would NOT be as big as the bulge in his back shows in that picture.

    As the President he would have access to the best of technology, there wouldn't be a huge receiver on his ass, it would be wireless and fit inside his ear. I mean crap you can get those at the local Security store. This sounds a little bit contrived, just like Pengate was.

    Let's generate a scenario where you are United States President today. As we all know, we are involved in a global war that has no frontlines or confined to just one region of the planet. With that said you are the perhaps the key player of this war. People want to take you out either enemy operatives or some deranged Michael Moore fan.


    WOULDN"T YOU WEAR A BULLETPROOF VEST IN PUBLIC TOO?

    I don't know. It seems like he was talking to Lehrer who might have thought his answer was over and had turned to give Kerry his next question. I'd like to see a video showing Lehrer.

    Yeah the only thing with that is that to address lehrer he has to turn significantly to his right, which he'd one seconds earlier in the clip. He was staring straigh ahead when he said it.
