    Your body languiage "expert" inadverently revealed her own bias against Mr. Romney. She said that Romney was showing disgust when he winkled his nose and lip. Interestingly, a close examination of her face shows these same signs of disgust when she is describing Mr. Romney's body language. Please at least try to find someone objective next time.

    Not so much about body "language"...how about body "SIZE"?..Did anyone else find it a tad odd that in all the split screen shots (most of the debate was split shot formated)...The Presidents head was approx. 10% larger?!! SERIOUSLY...compare also the size of both mens shirt collars and tie sizes, Obama was zoomed in closer, hense he came off larger than Romney, a subluminal "more intimate" for the viewers, more powerful...LIKEWISE, look at the backround (which was the same for each man)...in Obamas backround, the text on the wall is all blurry, in Romneys it's very sharp and clear, When they zoomed and enloarged Obama, it distorted the backround...Gads, Obama has a big enough over inflated self image, the techno bias wasn't necessary, he comes off over inflated without any assistance!
