RUSH: Marcia in Peoria, welcome to the EIB Network. Nice to have you here.
CALLER: Thank you. We watched a program on a channel called History International earlier this week —
CALLER: — about what your body language says about you.
RUSH: Oh, Bill O’Reilly has one of those specialists that’s on now and then, a body language expert.
CALLER: Yes. Well, they had five experts and they went through, oh, Paris Hilton, Bush, Clintons, and they got to Obama. And they said that people, because of Obama’s cadence and the inflection of his voice —
CALLER: — tend not to listen to what he says, but they’re almost hypnotized by how he says it. And I thought —
CALLER: — it was really dead-on on what they said about him.
RUSH: Now, did you see Obama’s press conference today?
CALLER: No, I didn’t. But I heard you talk about it and these people —
RUSH: The old Obama on the campaign trail, I think these body lingo experts that you saw on History International are probably accurate. I don’t think anybody watching today would be mesmerized. I think they’d be puzzled.
CALLER: Oh, yeah. They had Bush on correctly, too. They said he was almost childlike in his mannerisms and became endearing and likable. When he made a goof, he would laugh and they showed how he scrunched his shoulders up and —
CALLER: — made a funny face, they had him dead-on, too.
RUSH: Right. And Obama never makes any mistakes, so he never has to laugh at himself.
CALLER: No. Anyway, I thought it was interesting and I thought they had it right.
RUSH: Well, thank you. I’m sure that you’ll have a chance later today to see some videotape of this press conference. You ought to watch it. I’ll tell you what you’ll be struck with. It’s the exact opposite of what your experts on that show told you. This guy looked tiny. I really don’t like saying this. This is not healthy for the country. He looked tiny, dwarfed by the whole office, looked small, frail and uncertain, the halting speech and all that. Maybe it’s just me, folks, but there are times that Obama has reminded me of Imam Faisel Rauf, the Ground Zero mosque imam during his press conference. Well, straightforward, plainspoken when he answers questions, leaves nothing to doubt.
Anyway, a brief time-out. Thanks much.
