1. Was he expecting a reply while her mouth was full?

2. I can't believe he has the nerve to do that.

Her body language reflects her disgust, IMO.

9. And he refuses to join the Obamas for dinner, but he thinks

it's okay to act that familiar with the FLOTUS. He's probably drunk already. That why she is disgusted with him.

12. He's a Republican. Which means he does not respect women.

Remember Bush's treatment of Germany's Angela Merkel?

Disrespectful.

10. The tape looks altered. It actually looks like they are conversing and getting along pretty well.

Let's not make up problems where none appears to exist. The rolling of the eyes looks playful, not as if she's really annoyed.

13. Wrong. After he hits her, she acts just like a woman who has been treated

disrespectfully by some despicable man at a dinner table. Been there myself. That's exactly how a woman reacts.

That tape looks real but slowed down.

15. He touches her in the first 5 seconds and she rolls her eyes. You don't know what was happening

or being said prior to that so the tape does not give you a complete context. The tape is edited because it shows him touching her again midway through which is a repeat. My comment is simply that whomever posted this did not show the entire picture and hearing what is going on would help put it in context. Prior to the touch on the arm, they could very well have been having a joking conversation. I repeat, we don't need to create issues where none exist, and with just that little bit of an edited tape being shown you don't know whether they were joking or not. You seem to be more annoyed than Michelle was. That's it for me. I don't want to debate further something that neither of us knows for sure what the circumstances are. A picture is said to be worth a thousand words. An edited tape, even more.

18. Yes. The tape is repeated in the middle. But it is not edited as to content, merely

repeated at one point.

And I base my opinion on what happened in Michelle's mind on the fact that I am a woman and have sat by cads like John Boehner in my life. I have acted the same way.

She rolls her eyes and moves her arm because she is defending herself from Boehner's physical aggression and from his caddish behavior. She would have liked to tell him off, but reminded herself that she is supposed to act like a lady even if he acts like a brute.

Boehner was being much to familiar with Michelle Obama. He was way out of line. Boehner would never have treated Laura Bush in that fashion. I leave it at that.

16. I saw it on TV live when it happened. The tape is not altered and the

idea that it is is just silly. Nobody is making anything up and it wasn't playful.

You were wrong all the way around.

I posted about this within a minute of it happening: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=2231527

20. That was my takeaway as well

Barack looks pretty amused by whatever he said.

19. If you look at the shot, Barack laughs while Michelle rolls her eyes

Given the expression on Boehner's face, to me, it looks like he told a joke she didn't necessarily find amusing.

21. Looks like she was irritated with the what they were discussing

She was seriously focusing on her food, Boner tried to draw her in (irk her further) and she blew him off with indifference.
