A Romney ad showing Obama’s body language in the debate. (I should have watched in full screen mode, on my C Span feed, all I saw was a little picture of both debaters on the split screen part) This is sort of an Al Gore sigh debating Bush thing, only there’s likely a lot more of it.
At this page with a collection of links on ABC website:
“Behind the “Smirk”- Frustration – according to a facial recognition expert, who saw passion and anger and Romney’s face and distance on Obama’s – abcn.ws/Rg28xJ”
The link at the end goes here:
The word “smirk” appears once in the story in the last paragraph:
“Republicans claim in a new ad that Obama sported a “smirk” at times during the debate, which they suggest is a sign that he was “uncomfortable” and struggling with his answers. Kowal, however, said that in that moment Obama’s face registered more frustration than uncertainty, according to his software.”
