Once Again Obama Uses "Middle Finger Scratch" When Mentioning a Political Opponent - Video 12/4/09

UPDATE: Here's a compilation video of all three incidents:

Here is video of President Obama yesterday at an event in Pennsylvania scratching his face with a middle finger gesture as he was introducing Bethelehem, Pennsylvania mayor John Callahan, who was a supporter of Hillary Clinton.

It's not the first time Obama has used the "middle finger scratch" at the very moment he was mentioning a political opponent. He did the same thing when mentioning Hillary Clinton's name on April 17, 2008 during a speech in Raleigh, North Carolina:

And he did it when mentioning Sen. John McCain the day before the election on November 3, 2008:

I don't care for Barack Obama's politics and ideology. But even I can't hardly believe he would be this petty to consciously do this on purpose. However, either he is doing exactly that, or it is an extremely odd coincidence that he uses the "middle finger gesture / scratch" precisely when he mentions the name of political opponents. What do you think?

he's a very immature child in a man's body.

He's not the commander-in-chief, he's the coward-in-chief

Obama Is an idiot . An intelligent idiot but an idiot nonetheless. However we the people are idiots for not standing up sooner , but I guess it takes what it takes.
Hold on Obama here we come

I don't use that finger to scratch. Why would anyone use that finger to scratch? It's not natural. He's acting like a 13 year old and probably thinking he's oh-so-clever and that no one is "on to him". He probably has friends laughing their butts off in the audience over it.

Yeah, you gasbags have the guy figured out, all right. he obviously flips off his political opponents. I mean, how much more obvious can it get? Does Obama have a political opponent more threatening, more powerful, more openly critical than the Democratic mayor of Bethlehem, Pennsylvania?

What this petty little display of video clips shows is that rightwingnuts will pick up on ANYTHING at all to criticize this President. "It's not natural" to use one's middle finger to scratch? Are you JOKING?? Have you really studied this phenomenon enough to make that bald-faced assertion and claim it's a "fact"?

He's the "coward-in-chief"? Really? You can say that after an administration with a President who hid out in the Air National Guard rather than go to Vietnam? After a Vice President who received FIVE draft deferments to avoid service in Vietnam, because he "had other priorities"? After a Secretary of Defense who avoided the draft, too? You think THIS is the time to refer to the President of the United States as a "coward"?

As for "here we come" excuse me if we don't hold our breath waiting. You guys may have loud shrill voices, but you're few in number and you really don't want to haul your fat butts out of your Laz-E-Boys to actually "do" anything.

So stick with Faux Noise and whine on your rightwingnut blogs. That's about all you're capable of

Thanks for agreeing that we have Obama figured out. We do.

The Finger is not the problem. It's the lack of what's between his legs that makes him a problem.
A community organizer who's been packaged to the American people like an Iphone. Only ignorant impotent metrosexuals voted for The Joker. Real men voted for a real man. John McCain. The Joker is actually dumber than a bag of hammers!
Clinton was the first Black President. The Joker is the first Emasculated President. Kind of what the electorate did to America when they mistakenly voted for The Joker! Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. The only ones who will vote for The Joker again are masochist. DOPES!

Few in number Larry? You obviously have not been paying attention. Kiss your messiah goodbye in 2012.

Life is a "Seinfield" episode, remember the one where the waitress "gave" the finger to George on a couple of occassions?

"She could have used anyone of her fingers (to point at the menu), THAT ONE WAS MEANT FOR ME"!

The only difference, that was a sitcom and the show had NO impact on peoples lives other than supplying a little humor.

Moe, stick with Larry and Curly..... they make you seem like the "smart" one.

Rightwingers who feel an inappropriate need to "prove" their manhood online are pathetic creatures. I guess, if your contentions are correct, that there are a lot more metrosexual men with brains than there are cretinous redneck "real" men who play with whatever's between their legs.

I don't make rash overgeneralizations about who voted for who and why, but I do know this.... a LOT more people voted for Obama than voted for McCain. And odds are that it will recur in 2012, ESPECIALLY if St. Sarah gets th enod from the GOP. (We can only hope!)

Don't be too sure Larry. Obama only won 53%-46%, and that was with an adoring media totally in his corner, after eight years of a Republican in the White House, and an economic crisis.

Add to that the advantage he had in generating enthusiasm for himself because many wanted to vote for him to "make history," without respect to his policies or ideology.

In 2012, he won't be the fresh face anymore. He will be the President many people are tired of - especially his policies. It won't take that much of a swing to change the outcome of the next election.

Curley,  December 5, 2009 at 9:53 PM  

Geez, I guess the whole metrosexual thing really hit a nerve with Larry. He must feel a need to come to the defense of his emasculated President. Birds of a feather and all.
Must be one of those so called men that gets their hair done at a hairdresser then gets a manicure and pedicure. Now be a good boy and go do the dishes.
Moe your the MAN!

He thinks it is subtly funny - all it shows is that this President has NO CLASS and no concept of HOW TO ACT Presidential...

We're coming, Larry S. Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania were not a fluke, Larry. Here we come... ha ha ha!
