Have any of you seen this? BTW, it does sure look like she said all this for a flag. It makes no difference what was said, it is how and the reaction and facial expressions during a solemn moment.

Maybe he was proud of the ceremony? Shaking his head and smiling? Maybe she shows her pride by shaking no?

Also, not sure if this is original true footage, or if it was editted.

Heh. Yeah, nothin to see here. I'm sure a professional lip reader can determine what she said, and I actually think it was something nice and respectful. I've seen people do the slow "shakehead" when they see something nice.

Take this for what it's worth...

Beck had a guest today who has been deaf his entire life. This guy says he's almost certain she's saying, "Look how they're folding that flag". His audience made up entirely of college kids were pretty much split on whether her body language was positive or negative. Beck of course thought it was negative and used passed quotes and actions from the First Lady to make his case. The deaf guy pleaded the fifth.
