Compare and Contrast

Senator McCain's senior aide, Mark Salter, is reported to be smiling today on the campaign trail: "The senior aide to John McCain, known for his gruff demeanor, was practically giddy this morning on the campaign plane. He was cracking jokes with reporters and describing an optimistic atmosphere surrounding McCain."

Salter says the staff is "jazzed" and they believe they have "a real good shot" at winning.

Senator Obama, on the other hand, gave Senator McCain the middle finger today as he ostensibly congratulated McCain for a hard-fought campaign.

Senator Obama did the same thing a few months ago when discussing Senator Clinton -- he began scratching his face with his middle finger.

Once may be a coincidence -- I gave him the benefit of the doubt at the time -- but twice? If it's truly an "accident," Senator Obama needs to brush up on appropriate body language for the campaign trail.

Whether or not he wins tomorrow, Senator Obama strikes me as an unhappy, graceless man.

Rush calls him a "thug" and that's what he is...and it shows.

I heard that comment and agreed with it, Jean...especially when you add in other examples of Obama behavior such as threatening political opponents with prosecution, trying to shut down biographers when they appeared on radio shows, the investigation by Obama allies into Joe the Plumber, and on and on it goes...

Best wishes,

I'm not with you on this one. I really don't think he really gave the finger. I think it makes us look silly to bring up things like that--it is quite a stretch.

If he didn't mean it, he has some very unbecoming gestures which he needs to rethink. I don't believe they're appropriate for a potential President and they make him look unprofessional, at best.

I would think it was a coincidence also- if it only happened once. But that is not the case.
Of course it's his rhetoric and his policies which is when he is really giving us the finger...

Sorry, he's already made the same gesture once to Hillary, not to mention brushing her "dirt" off his shoulders and looking at the bottom of his shoes. No way that gesture was an accident *again*. Plus the lipstick/pig thing. He's just a passive/aggressive little man with the maturity of a third grader, and it shows.
