1. he definitely has been buzzed lately.
And it has to be something.
He can talk in sentences for the first time in his presidency.
And he is quick in his thoughts.

It's a miracle!

6. Or maybe it's just because he has a script to read from?

8. It's the script-plus CNN said it was the speech he was supposed to read
on Sept 11th, so he's had plenty of time to practice Terror Terror. I did one of these the other day when he actually had no scripted answers because it was a press conference taking questions-the "uhs, ums" show that if he can't read his stuff, he's stuck.

Bush's Crony Speeech with jerks, smirks and duhs

4. No--I ran into a non-DUer
who noticed changes in speech and appearance months ago.

15. It is very noticeable, and a fairly recent development....
I was watching some documentary on Sundance a while ago about Bush and the religious right, and in all the scenes of him speaking, he never ONCE moved his jaw from side to side like that, nor was there the tongue thing going on. I hate to make assumptions about people's drug use, but I've been around a lot of speed freaks and coke heads, and these tics are strangely reminiscent.

3. Very nicely done
Edited on Thu Oct-06-05 03:28 PM by Oreo
I especially appreciate the fact that I didn't have to listen to him speechify.

What is the freepers take on this? At the least it's a new nervous twitch he's picked up (why is he so nervous). At worst it's a side-effect from a drug he's taking or has taken (why is he still president?). Freepers and righties in general would be on this like flies on shit if it was one of ours.

Kicked and Nominated

10. Distraction
All the jaw wigglin and tongue dartin and lip hidin are meant to keep you from lookin into his beady, shifty, dead eyes.

As bad as it is to watch that video, reading that speech is a horrible experience. Who makes this shit up?

12. Check out the jaw jerk at 1:43 to 1:45. It actually evolves into...
...a lip curl and nostril flare.

13. Was that toward the end? It was like the grand finale of facial tics.

17. He may have done it then, too, but I caught it at 1 min. and 43 secs.
I tried to grab it but all I get is a black screen.

14. I really appreciate this
I've been hearing about the "coke jaw" for weeks. I could assume it was a sore tooth or loose dentures but it's clearly so involuntary!

P.S. Someone posted this morning that the applause was piped in because it sounded exactly the same each time. I've got two words for him or her--YOU'RE RIGHT!

16. Great video
You can really concentrate on his face without all that yammering.
His jaw has been wiggling and jerking for years..but what I've noticed in the last few appearances, and most especially in this beautiful video, is that his eyes show NO confidence whatsoever. None. It's a totally different look.

Perhaps he's lost the people that propped up his image of himself.
