"It's what you do when you don't have the basketball." - Larry Bird
A lot can be discerned by carefully observing other high level officials who are "in the know" during such important addresses as the The State of the Union - and one such example follows. Last night, at the 48:05 mark, Barack Obama continued:
"As Americans, we cherish our civil liberties – and we need to uphold that commitment if we want maximum cooperation from other countries and industry in our fight against terrorist networks. So while some have moved on from the debates over our surveillance programs, I have not. As promised, our intelligence agencies have worked hard, with the recommendations of privacy advocates, to increase transparency and build more safeguards against potential abuse. And next month, we’ll issue a report on how we’re keeping our promise to keep our country safe while strengthening privacy."
During the 48:37 - 48:39 segment, John Boehner then rubs his right eye. The timing and context of such a unilateral eye rub while listening to another person speaking, indicates either his own incredulity or Boehner's belief of blatant deception by Barack (Rubbing both eyes indicates something completely different - do YOU know what it means?). The Speaker of the House either does not agree with the President - or he believes POTUS is lying with respect to the issues of either keeping the country safe, strengthening the peoples' privacy - or both.
