I am not going to talk about the final presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama.
Instead, I am going to comment a little on the so-called body language expert's analysis of the body language of the parties to the debate.
Those of you who have watched the CNN interview with a body language expert's analysis will know what I am referring to.
On Romney's seemingly perpetual smirk especially when Obama was talking on Libya as an inappropriate gesture, and one that would not endear him to the American voters, I want just to stay that as far as I am concerned, that was a sign of someone who was sincerely cynical of what Obama was saying and not only that but also of someone who believed that he could do better than the president in handling the Libya situation.
I would myself have given Romney the vote based on that alone.
Now, although I am not an American voter, body language and its interpretation is supposed to be universal in nature and in its application. Either that or it is just baloney.
As to Obama's lifting up of his chin when Romney agreed with the former on a point as a sign that Obama was not only saying he led but that was like telling you that he was a leader and this would be how viewers perceive, I say only that that went to show up Obama as someone who lacked confidence and who needed to be authenticated. Not a sign of a good leader.
As to the president gesturing a direction to Romney to step out from behind the desk and go ahead of him at the end of the debate as Obama telling you that he was the one who was still the leader, well, do you know what I think?
Simple, I think that went to show you either Obama was polite, which would be as it should be, or that the president deferred to Romney and that was not a bad impression as far as the latter was concerned.
The constant slapping on the upper left arm of Romney as the two shook hands? Are we to take that as a sign of confidence and leadership?
Let me let you in on a personal secret. I am not one to tell too much of myself in public.
Whenever I am not particularly confident of myself on any matter, or feeling like the leader, I would do exactly what Obama did here to Romney, vigorously shaking my opponent's hand and slapping him repeatedly on the arm.
That is the measure of my confidence and leadership!
Ha ha. So funny. But I think you have been suckered.
