This would be odd in and of itself, but if you go back and look at Bush's speeches you'll find the exact same pattern. Odd that both would do the exact same thing, given that solving the problem is simple. In fact, several times Bush used and earpiece to feed him lines and still did it. The look just like, exactly like, the animatronic characters at various amusement parks.
Clinton did not follow the pattern. Regan looked down, then up and side to side on occasion, but did not have the robotic moves.
I wonder why they make robotic, un-human like moves when speaking to people?

He's the President. He doesn't have to do anything you ask.
Same reason Bush didn't have to be intelligent.
Wrong my friend. Being the President means he has to do EVERYTHING we ask. Seems like a lot of people, especially the bunch of numbnuts we keep sending back to D.C., forget that the government works for us and not the other way around.
