After a sleepy performance in the first presidential debate, Barack Obama seems to have taken some coaching from his vice president. While the president certainly doesn’t have the teeth to pull off the dreaded “Biden smirk,” his coaches seem to have asked “What else you got?” and found the equivalent in the Obama “death stare.” But will it have a more unnerving effect on Mitt Romney or on the viewing audience?

Whoa, steady there Tagg! Enough with the violent rhetoric!

To paraphrase a certain presidential candidate, “A death stare is not a foreign policy.” Was Obama bowing to all of those foreign leaders so as not to harm them with his laser-shooting eyes?
