At the next rally they’ll be throwing away their crutches and walking out of wheelchairs.

Just what I was thinking and it is a scary thought! Obama the Antichrist.

I've listened to many an Obama snippet and some whole speeches, along with people like Laura Ingram stating (today for example) that Obama has such a way with speeches and crowds.

In every case I find Obama to be pedestrian, downright boring. Our level of "excellence" has fallen so low it is ridiculous. Obama is a damn bore.

My favorite was his recent victory speech in which he told about running a jobs fair - which no one attended! It was pathetic.

Hitler had better body language and jestures. So did Stalin and Mao.

It’s fixed

I’d do it myself, but actually having fainted from going to heat after riding a bike, wearing jeans and a heavy black T-shirt into a small, well air-conditioned place, it wasn’t a good experience. I could’ve lost an eye when I blacked out.

It’s the HOLY GHOST! Hey, did you know that Obama is the conservatives’ choice for 08? Ann Coulter’s going to campaign for him! Hell, maybe she’ll date him. They can hang out, chain smoke and not eat.

Wouldn’t it be funny to pack an Obama rally with about 40 or 50 freepers in the front row and everyone faint together on cue?

Probably faking it but I'm not about to send the link to the article to all my friends until after the primaries. I don't want to hurt Obama's Mama's son's chances of getting the nomination........

"I find Obama to be pedestrian, downright boring"

Count me as another who doesn't get it. There is nothing special or even appealing about his presence or oratory in my opinion.

He is boring! And his drone brings the sound of beating on a barrel with a stick to my mind.

Madison, Wis., Oct. 22, 2007. "Before the senator arrived, students were tossing around an inflatable cow above the crowd. Three people fainted in the midst of all the enthusiasm."

Uhhh. Okay.

Was Benny discussing Iraq?

No, they won't do that because John Edwards would sue for copyright infringement

Spot-on...Obama puts me in a coma every time he speaks. In his TV ads, he sounds very "preacher"...which is not going to appeal to all the folks.

Hussein Obamalama does a great stylistic impression of MLK, Jr. But there's no THERE there.

Did you ever see the Hitler piece on The History Channel?

They managed to get some rare footage of Hitler before the beginning of a speech, before he morphed into character.

And, a "covert" Finnish audio recording of Hitler out of public character. His normal, conversational tone sounded pretty normal to this non-German speaking listener.

As for Obama's shenanigans, I'm thinking he was in contact with that Iraqi psychiatric facility guy for some plants.

Or at least on how to select plants....

who cares anyway?

Every Freeper should care.

imho this fainting is an integral part of the Obama campaign, and it will be an important part of the technique that will bury John McCain and hurt the Republicans down-ticket as well.

The Obama campaign is not about substance, it is about image, emotion, feel.

When Obama visits a city you can sense the excitement as though a major historical event were taking place. (When McCain visits everybody will yawn.)

Obama's handlers are playing this "rock star" approach brilliantly.

Can the public be manipulated?

You bet they can.

btw there is a way to defeat a rock star candidate. Since Hillary hasn't figured it out yet and I don't want her to before the primary is over I will keep my thoughts to myself until after she concedes.

(I got your attention, right? That is how it is done!) :-)
