This clip was amazing. It is unreal how I intellectually know that Obama is a marketing figure for the corporations but every time I hear him speak he literally mesmerizes me. I know he is saying untrue statements but his personal charisma is so overwhelming it suspends my ability to reason for the whole time he is talking. Has anyone also noticed his sex appeal and his exploitation of it? In a couple of health care appearances lately, Obama has been taking his coat off stating to the crowd that he was "hot". I think this occurred on more than one occasion. Unreal. Manipulation of the masses for sure. Tonight when I was taking a walk, I noticed the number of televisions in the homes I was passing. How? Because they were HUGE televisions. Home after home. And all I could ponder was: can people even think anymore with all of that noise, all of that advertising? Can people even think for themselves anymore?

24186 I've listened to Pilger before about Obama. He is terrific and lays everything out well. Since September of 2009 I have turned the sound down whenever I hear Obama's voice. I can't stand the sight of him. In July 2009 is when I started to suspect that Obama was the one running the entire show on HCR, but he didn't want to get his hands dirty. But then it was all confirmed, first by Dr. Margaret Flowers on Bill Moyers and then a little later by Greenwald citing an August 2009 NYT article. And then, of course, there's the continued drone attacks, which I had prayed would end shortly after he came into office. Talk about naive. And now looking at what he is doing with regard to public education? I see a drive towards privatization picking up. Just like with HCR we're going to see millions, if not billions, shoveled to private corporations for charter schools -- our taxpayer money.

But I agree with JB in the respect that Obama is really able to mesmerize and it will be our undoing. Obama is Bush on steroids -- but, then again, if Obama does it it's must be okay -- because he's cool, he's hot and he really does care about us, right?

As a non-American, i must say i never noticed the charisma people constantly allege Obama exhudes. To me he always seemed like another slick politician, like a phoney.

But then, i'm afraid people these days often prefer fake-personalities to real ones.
