I've written before about the problems with journalistic mind-reading and story-telling "analysis" about the president's visual appearance. Via a journalist to remain nameless, here's an especially egregious example of both from Newsweek's Evan Thomas:

As he japed and mugged and fidgeted, he seemed worried by something more than Iraq or the election returns; his whole character appeared to be wrestling with some more personal, inner demon.
Newsweek should run a disclaimer if it's going to publish this kind of garbage journalism. I have a suggestion -- just put this next to the offending text:
