I once considered doing a study of the persuasion and crowd manipulation techniques in Obama's speeches. Since I have studied a few, I can see them clearly.
But some bonehead put out a study already and went waaaaaaay over the mark, claiming Obama hypnotized the American public into voting for him. It was so propaganda-like itself it became a laughing stock and later efforts to discuss Obama's presentation and crowd control skills were either channeled into vague generalities (like he has a lot of communication talent and so forth) or dismissed as quackery.
Some of the stuff in the study was correct, some interesting stuff that could lead to further investigation was spun out of character with speculation parading as fact, and some of it was just plain dishonest.
The guy actually helped Obama hide what he does from the general public. Here's the PDF if anyone is interested: An Examination of Obama’s Use of Hidden Hypnosis Techniques in His Speeches
These idiots just don't get it. When you fight lies with lies, everyone's a liar and accusations don't stick. The yelling buries what truth there is once the "everyone's a liar" narrative sets in with the public.
Only objective truth presented dramatically blows large-scale deception into oblivion in the short-term, like, say, the ACORN videos of James O’Keefe.
