Look at his smirk afterward once the audience notices what he did.

Intentional, eh?

Weird thing is.... won't that GET him some votes on the one hand, but turn a bunch of folks off as to whether he's presidential on the other?

yup the turd pile is growing and they are ready to implode go democrats!!!!

I think the smirk is more in reaction to the crowd's reaction to what he said, not the "flipping off".

He did if he doesn't normally itch with that finger like that.

I know people who push their glasses up with their middle finger, but it's not to give anyone the bird.  It's simply easier.

Good point.  

But the lovely thing is that with the Dem. nomination up in the air, these  two polarized sides will keep attacking each other all over this shit, while McCain sits on the sidelines and watches them continue to damage their election chances.

The crowd makes the sound before his next sentence and right after he does it.  He has a smirk while he does it as well.  

Who knows.  What he said before didn't sound the least bit interesting to me.

BHO can absolutely be dragged to the mat in an open honest intellectual debate.
Let's face it, the guy knows very little about economics, foreign policy or military affairs.
Poor old me could win a debate with him.

But we're berating him for scratching his face?
This is exactly how Republicans lose elections, by bringing up stupid shit like this. Lets slaughter him on facts and issues, not tabloid gossip.

I thought he was supposed to be a great speaker?  I am not seeing that.

We don't have to bring it up and berate him for it... Hillary will do that for us.

She's the best thing for the Republican party right now.

Do you think McCain will be able to debate him on issues like free speech and immigration?

Thats "The Finger"... in context, and relished afterward. No question.

The guy is every bit as bad a public speaker as GWB.

"Uh...Ya know...Uh..."
Link Posted: 4/18/2008 11:53:46 AM EDT
whether he gave her the bird or not. the people in the audience thought so and apparently some of us thought so too. Me included

remember, when being judged by your peers, the D.A. always says what would a reasonable person do. Well, looks like the reasonable person thought he was giving her the international "HI" sign.

My opinion, it will cost him.

DUHHHHHHHH


Yup.   And this clip was very popular among GWB supporters.   I think people turned off by Obama's bird prolly were voting for Hillary anyway.

Wasn't that way back when he was running for Governor?
