|The source to this assertion might be too controversial for this forum but you can visit a link to his book where he makes the allegation. All I know is that it does explain how Obama rose so fast.|
Well this description of the book from the link sounds accurate:
"The Making of a Manchurian Candidate Barack Obama is a troubled personality, the megalomaniac front man for a postmodern coup by intelligence agencies using fake polls, mobs of adolescents, super-rich backers, and orchestrated media hysteria to short-circuit normal politics and seize power."
As a matter of fact, I think fake polls and orchestrated media hype are being used to push Romney to the front at this time.
