    ...Has anyone else noticed that, when he speaks to a large audience (I have no idea what he does in private, smaller gatherings), President Obama frequently tilts his head back, almost as though he is looking down his nose at us?

    Yeah, the "looking down his nose at us" part was meant to prod discussion.

    I don't really mean it as an insult, consider it more of a catalyst if you will. I may not have voted for the guy but I feel no real animosity towards him either. Color me indifferent about him. Some of his policies, well, let's just say I don't cotton to some of them. I do my best to watch every speech or address he gives (apologies to my wife), just as I did with Clinton and Bush before him, and this head tilt is something I have noticed in almost every one. My wife and I were laughing about it this evening and I started to wonder if anyone else had noticed.

    He does a great condescending snob impression, no doubt.

    Ever notice how, when somebody hates somebody, they can read nonsense into everything? Every little gesture and breath has a dark and annoying meaning.

    Really? I wouldn't know as I hate no one.

    I guess after eight years of Bush, you can speak from experience, so I'll just take your word for it...
