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?

Know why news anchors don't have the left/right problem and are always looking into the camera at you? It's not because they're just that damn good and have memorized the script before the show, uh uh; it's because there is a plate of glass in front of the camera lens that is tilted at a 45 degree angle where their script appears.

The camera focuses on the person so that the words are invisible to the viewer. The presenter can look directly into the camera lens and read the script with no one being the wiser.

Now, do you know why Obama doesn't do that? Because he's a LIAR, and he knows that if he looks people in the eye that they will see it. "The eyes are the window to the soul" the saying goes, and it's true. The eyes don't lie.

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.

Oh, really? Well guess what, I WANT him to look left and right, and NOT into the camera!!!! Looks like he listens to me and not you.
