In the first debate, Romney looked like he was suffering from a terrible case of gas. No smiles. Just that "look" of unease, like he ate something that didn't agree with him. Perhaps it was just a grimmace. Maybe it's just his nature when trying to seal the deal.

That was just my take on his facial expressions. Nothing to take away except for the sense he was not comfortable not being in charge. Perhaps this is what CEOs do when they are not happy with the way the meeting is going, a subordinate has asked an uncomfortable question, or the he made an attempt at a joke and nobody laughed.

Mr. Biden was rude and condescending with a cynical smile. Anyone with perception can tell a pasted on grin from a genuine smile. Joe was just being Joe and it wasn't pretty.

Smiling isn't a weapon. It's what humans do if they're not grumpy republicans.

I listen on the radio - never saw this "smile" thing.

I heard and witnessed only the facts and data; an entirely different debate.

BTW - Mr. Biden smoked Mr. Ryan.
again, facts and data....without the "smiles".

Its hard for republicans to feel good about themselves. They know what they are doing is wrong.
The rich like to take all the resources, and do not like to share with others.
The richest guy I have known looked liked he ate onions, and sucked on lemons.
