How Obama Got Elected

Posted in politics by roving on February 25, 2009

The campaign over the summer was the most frustrating thing I ever witnessed. The out right lies and distortions were unbelievable.

After years of buying my local paper, I couldn’t stomach the biased any longer and  emailed the editor and told him the reasons I could no longer buy his paper.

Two weeks before I canceled, the editor had written a editorial about getting complaints of its seemingly biased commentary in the editorial page. The way it normally looked, there would be three editorials pro Obama and one pro McCain. Sometimes all were pro Obama. Letters to the editor were mainly anti McCain. The editor said the paper would be more fair. Well I waited two weeks and nothing changed so stopped buying it.

It wasn’t just that 90% of the time the editorial page was pro Obama, it distorted the facts about obama in a good light and in a bad light whenever anything was printed about McCain or Palin.

Now our local paper will no longer have a Monday edition. Gee, I wonder why? Who wants to read  a paper like that? I want to read about the truth.

John Ziegler made a documentary about the biased and lies in the media through out the campaign. You can see a preview on the website He has also been making the rounds in the MSM and has been tearing them apart. It was great to watch.

Words. Just Words.

Maybe its good I never liked Obama from day one. I can’t stand the way he talks and how he talks about nothing. The way he pronounces the letter S is like fingernails on a chalkboard. I live in IL so  know how corrupt and pretty much useless he was in doing his job. (When he decided to do his job anyway.)

Feeling this way may have saved me from falling under this spell he put people under during his campaign. All I could stomach to watch were bits and pieces and I saw how he talked a lot but didn’t say anything, but the crowd acted strange. People fainting when seeing him.

July 2008 Barack Obama returned to Chicago Sunday and made an appearance before the UNITY minority journalists’ convention

Obama received a standing ovation from many in the audience at the start and end of his appearance. There was also a rush toward the stage after his speech, as Obama shook hands and signed autographs.

One journalist was also overheard wishing him luck, while another squealed, “He touched me!” as she left the ballroom.

I seen the article written by the psychologist saying Obama hypnotized the crowd and he made some really good observations. It made complete sense to me. I know hypnotism can work. I’ve been hypnotized before.

Washingtonpost “I am going to try to be so persuasive, so that those of you who are still wavering…will suddenly come to the conclusion — a light beam will shine through — will light you up — and you will experience an epiphany — I have to vote for Barack!  When you do, we would love you to fill out one of these supporter cards to memorialize this moment.”

“If you believe…

“If you believe…

“If you believe…”

A fundamental tool of “conversational hypnosis” is pacing and leading—a way for the hypnotist to bypass the listener’s critical faculty by associating repeated statements that are unquestionably accurate with the message he wants to convey.

In his Denver acceptance speech, Obama used the phrases “that’s why I stand here tonight,” “now is the time,” and “this moment” 14 times. Paces are connected to the lead by words such as “and,” “as,” “because,” or “that is why.” For example, “we need change” (who could disagree?)…and…that is why I will be your next President.”
Techniques of trance induction include extra slow speech, rhythm, tonalities, vagueness, visual imagery, metaphor, and raising of emotion. Hypnotists often have patients count. In a speech after the primaries closed, Obama said: “Sixteen months have passed (paused)…Thousands (pause) of miles…(pause)…Millions of voices….”

South Carolina: “At some point in the evening, a light is going to shine down and you will have an epiphany and you’ll say, ‘I have to vote for Barack.’”

Obama McCain win New Hampshire’s first votes. That morning at a rally Obama praised his brown shirts, er student volunteers: “My job is to be so persuasive that if there’s anybody left out there who is still not sure whether they will vote, or is still not clear who they will vote for, That a light will shine through that window, a beam of light will come down upon you. You will experience an epiphany…and you will suddenly realize that you must go to the polls and vote for Obama.”

Obama had used that same “If you believe” along with “You will experience an epiphany” phrase over and over in other stump speeches. And the people stood there in awe.

There were quite a few pictures of Obama taken. What I noticed were more then a few would have a light above or around Obama to give him a almost a divine saviour look.

The question is, how long before more of the people under the spell will join the others that have already “seen the light” and now are saying what have I done!??
