Is This Why He’s So Popular?

Has Barack Obama hypnotized the American public?


From the AAPS (Association of American Physicians and Surgeons) website: 

Is Barack Obama a brilliant orator, captivating millions through his eloquence? Or is he deliberately using the techniques of neurolinguistic programming (NLP), a covert form of hypnosis developed by Milton Erickson, M.D.?

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.”

    This is the most inconsiquential drivel I have heard in al long time. Why are we looking for so many strange reasons why Obama is our 44th president. WE need to face simple facts, He won because more Americans wanted him to be President. Very simple, very accurate, totally true. No need for abject speculation……..The End…..
