    "The campaign works hard to cultivate the rock star image. After he's introduced, Obama routinely waits about 30 seconds to enter the arena.

    The excitement grows, until his entrance is perfectly timed with the soaring chords of U2's “City of Blinding Lights.”

    "I can't really verbalize exactly what it is about him," says Avila. "Part of it is just beyond explanation."
  2. it's all media driven. obama is a fairly good public speaker and somewhat sharp. but they are trying to sell sex and thats a stretch. throw a walmart uniform on him and this dude aint gettin no action. he could be an adult Urkel.

  3. It is not media driven.

    The media doesn't drive the consumer, the consumer drives the media. The media conforms to the audience. For years we heard the right wing blame the media for all the ills of the world, even after the media was what facilitated the election of George Bush.

    If you would stop blaming the media, and try to find a candidate that comes across well on the media of the day, i.e. video, then you wouldn't be blaming the media on the lack of success of your candidate.

    The media is not going away, it is completely fickle in its nature as it is just a response to the money trail...it is all corporate driven, $$$ driven, advertising revenue driven...

    People have dumbed down in America, that is not the fault of the media, Americans have become vapid, shallow, and sheepish. They abdicate critical thinking and warranted suspicion of pols for the warm stupid feeling of "Yes We Can" and "Hope."

    Before video, people blamed the print media for all the problems, same old story...

    People are falling in love with Obama just like desperate horny lonely men fall in love with unknown available ugly women when the are drunk enough close to closing time at the bar...and when they wake up to the reality they vacate in as many ways as possible...as quickly as possible.

    I just see the same type of cult of personality I saw in a smaller way with the RuPaul stuff earlier in the year.

    People don't walk around proudly saying they voted for Bush these days, they hide that shame, blame the opposing party, criticize Bush, etc, never take personal responsibility for voting in that moron Bush....same will be true of Obama when people eventually come to their senses. Obama has nowhere to go from a mania like this but down. They will blame Obama, they won't blame themselves for their unwillingness to apply critical thinking to the political process.

    If you chart Obama's rise, it looks like a typical American bubble phenomena...he will crash, reality will rear its natural head in the end.

    Barack Hussein Obama, your next American Idol...

  4. you really are a very simple simple person. its all media driven.. they have been doing it for years. i pity those that can't see it.

  5. You crack me up.

    Do you know what circular logic is?

    You are trying to prove media is to blame by using the media of youtube, which is a big part of the problem as it appeals to information that is not process though active thinking, but rather by passive and adoptive thinking.


    Make a change in your life, try reading and thinking for for yourself...

    You fell in love with Bush, then you fell in love with RuPaul.

    You are the classic follower who blames the media because they perceive everyone as they are, simply followers, not independent thinker.
