Read His Lips -- and Smirk

An expert on non-verbal communication analyzes the non-verbal presidential campaignk.
"Over the course of the debates, the President's body language was inappropriate when faced with harsh criticism from Kerry or tough questions from moderators or town-hall meeting participants.

'He'd show fear on his face,' says Hill. 'His eyebrows go up and he gets 'bug eyes' -- his eyes go wide for a moment.' When challenged, the Pres sometimes lapsed into an upside-down smile, which, Hill says, reflects 'a combination of anger, disgust, and sadness.'"
In all fairness, Kerry came in for some criticism as well.
