Obama Guaranteed To Win Election! 30 Minute Infomercial is Basically Meant Just to Rub It In

11 of the Top Google Searches as of 8:46 Central, October 29 are for Obama’s Fabulous New Product That Everybody is Talking About! It breaks down like this:

1. obama infomercial
2. obama commercial
4. obama tv
5. obama speech
6. obama 30 minute ad
8. obama infomercial october 29
9. obama prime time

Boy, Obama’s got you hypnotized. I mean, he’s really using advanced Neuro-Linguistic Programming Techniques to hypnotize you. Seriously. Conspiracy Central has more on the HypnObama.

I think it’s simpler. He’s promising to fix folks problems, and lots of people believe bullshizzle when it’s presented nice and sounds good and it confirms that their lives suck, all sorts of people have it better than them and that’s unfair, and he’s gonna fix it. 

He’s gonna change with hope and hope about change, and it’s going to magically make everything better. Awesome!


Barack Obama Is Gonna Bring Change We Can Believe In

Barack Obama Is Gonna Bring Change We Can Believe In

He won’t. But we’ll have plenty of time to see if he just stagnates or fails massively. You can’t coax the economy with your charm, and you can’t use NLP to hypnotize terrorists from afar or make socialism work at home, when it has always failed, every time it’s tried. 

BTW, kudos to CNN for not running the Obama infomercial. They have a little more integrity there than I would have given them credit for. 

As linked to in the top image, AP has already decided that Obama has won. We can skip this stupid election formality and just coronate our new Glorious Leader.

ABC also passed, but said it was because of the trouble they would have filling the second half hour. They could have just had their news people comment on how brilliant Obama’s infomercial was. That’s what they’d typically do. Fortunately, 7 other networks agreed to run the ad for the Obamanizer and His New Wealth Redistribution Workout. Guaranteed to take unwanted weight from our wallets and your bank accounts, and trim excessively fatty jobs. 

The New York Times thinks the Obama Infomercial is the Greatest Thing Ever. To quote the great philosopher Gomer Pyle: “Surprise, Surprise, Surprise!”

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! The MSM Loves The Obama Propaganda Special!

Surprise, Surprise, Surprise! The MSM Loves The Obama Propaganda Special!

Not everybody thinks it’s a great idea, or that Obama is The Messiah. Just most people.

    Obama’s use of hidden hypnosis techniques in his speeches

    The media had better get on this one because everyone is interested in this story and blown away by this document.

    Unless you have a better explanation for why nothing sticks to this guy, he has no accomplishments, draws crowds of hundreds of thousands chanting “change” and “yes we can” with no idea of what it means, there is a cult-like infatuation going on around him, he has no experience and is about to become President ….Read this.

    You’ll note, I refer to the NLP/hypnosis thing in the text of this very blog post.

    I think there are other explanations. People like the idea of getting Something for Nothing, even though that’s usually the most expensive somethings we get, in the long run.

    People like to think people with more than they have don’t deserve it or didn’t earn it or whatever excuse you like, and they want the stuff those richer people have. So “spread the wealth” resonates.

    The economy is in the toilet, and Bush is very unpopular in the polls. That always redounds to the benefit of the challenging party.

    David Axelrod is a good strategist, writes great speeches, Obama has run a very slick campaign, with or without NLP and secret hypnosis techniques. Maybe they work. Im sure on some people they do. But man, I’m going to barf if I see him using Anthony Robbin’s Personal Power strategies to associate himself with the presidency and the Oval Office and Air Force 1 again.

    Yeah, he is definitely using versions of NLP and Anthony Robbin’s Personal Power, which I guarantee you he has listened to. However ,it’s not hypnotizing me to vote for him, though I do, in generally, have positive feelings towards him as a person and how he has run his campaign. But when he was reading Anthony Robbin’s, he really should have absorbed some Brian Tracy. Particularly Something for Nothing, listed above, and Action Strategies for Personal Achievement, which is a great product, BTW.

    Hi there,

    whoever you are, Barack is not using NLP. I am a Master Trainer in NLP and trust me he does not know NLP. If he does, he will not use negations against him. Thanks.

  4. 4 memetrics October 31, 2008 at 8:05 pm

    I’m just the messenger here. I don’t know much about NLP per se, but I do see a lot of stuff out the Anthony Robbins Personal Power playbook going on. And, just cuz he uses something, doesn’t mean he’s perfect at it, or uses it all the time.

    Maybe he’ll get better before the first State of the Union.

    I,m With Obama/Biden ,change is comming soon!

  6. 6 memetrics November 3, 2008 at 2:29 pm

    Yeah, lots of people are apparently “with Obama”. Change is coming soon. Coming out of your wallet, coming out of your paycheck, coming out of your electric bill . . . wheee!

  7. 7 Darren November 3, 2008 at 10:28 pm

    There’s far too much slouching around here! But the spelling’s tellingly okay…

  8. 8 Darren November 3, 2008 at 10:40 pm

    Something that’s bothered me is Barack Obama’s support for the US military testing their technology on the Pakistan or Syrian borders. The ‘american public’ Should know that America is sending Predator robots to vapourise people including children.

  9. 9 memetrics November 3, 2008 at 10:50 pm

    Yeah, I slouch. What of it? It mixes well with my finger-dyslexia typos. Makes it more of a pose than some kind of congenital defect.

    Barack supporting US Military testing technology on borders–well, that may change. Some of that may be a pose to look tough on national security. Might change.

    If if he did support it, I understand why he wouldn’t want full transparency. Alas, anything made publically available to the American pipples is also available to the terrorists and whatnot.

    Frankly, I’m not sure what the best solution is. Big wars are mostly won by killing a lot of innocent people–usually on purpose. That was certainly true in WWII. It’s also a great reason for democracies not to start pre-emptive wars, but let’s not go there right now.

    If the choice is between killing a small amount of innocent people and a whole lot of them, what do you do? Sucks.

    But Obama has lots of different positions on stuff, depending on who you talk to. When the rubber meets the road, you may see him put an end to that stuff. Or open it up to lawsuits. We just won’t know until the time comes.

  10. 10 Darren November 3, 2008 at 11:06 pm

    Slouch comment was meant to be ironic. Really I was looking for Memetrics you’re a child! Think again about children being vaporised by robot drones. It’s really happening! You’re privileged enough to have an internet connection, read pakistani newspapers.

  11. 11 memetrics November 3, 2008 at 11:45 pm

    Dude, I understand. It wasn’t an endorsement. Vaporizing kids is 100% uncool. Given my child-like nature, I’m obviously not going to support the vaporization of children.

    Jeeze. Come on. Give me some slack, Ironic.

  12. 12 Darren November 3, 2008 at 11:54 pm

    Sorry Mem. It’s just that americans r so up their own arses generally. They/you have no idea about the broader world?

  13. 13 memetrics November 4, 2008 at 2:39 am

    Sometimes. Not always. But most folks (and I’ve found this to be universally true when talking to Europeans) don’t know all that much of what goes on outside their own backyard, and those that do think they know a whole lot more than they actually do. I’ve heard the most azz-fuggled descriptions about how America works from Brits. And a few Swedes. Or they may have been Danes. Can’t tell ’em apart.

    And they are so certain about it. So sure they know how it all works and they are so cynical and superior and everybody who doesn’t understand it all as well as they do are idiots. And then they tell me how arrogant Americans are. It’s awesome.

    But knowing more than a portion is tough work. I’m a history buff, and I’m always finding out stuff I didn’t know about things that happened years ago. Add that to what’s going on every day in the world, and it’s a big sandwich to chew up. There is aplenty going on out there I don’t know about. America itself is frickin’ huge. I haven’t even travelled to more than, like, 25% of it. I’ve been to Europe twice in my life, all tourist stuff. Although the hotel in some sort of weird Paris ghetto at age 12 was kind of broadening. I’ve been to Tourist Mexico. I need to travel more. Don’t deny it.

    Got a link on Obama and/or McCain supporting predator drones playing around the Pakistani border, let me know and I’ll pop a blog on it. Make a point of it.

    BTW, noticed you might be .uk . . . I was gonna complain to you about BBC4 dumping the Now Show podcast in favor of some kind of weird BBC player that never worked right for me, and then I found they’ve bundled it into some kind of bulk comedy podcast, which isn’t as good as the individual podcast, but I’ll take that. Love the Now Show. And now I can get it again! And I only went and discovered that, thanks to you.

    It may make me parochial, but after a few months of listening to the BBC news digests, I couldn’t take it any more. I felt like I was being drugged. I actually find Al Jazeera (English) a better news source than the BBC. Is that wrong? Probably.

  14. 14 Nina November 5, 2008 at 4:51 am

    You rock so hard for actually posting a blog about the NLP/Hypnosis people still don’t know what the hell is going on.

  15. 15 memetrics November 5, 2008 at 6:28 am

    Thanks, Nina. Obama picked most of his strategy (regarding building positive associations, associating himself with power, etc) from Tony Robbin’s Personal Power. Which picks a lot from NLP, but isn’t pure Richard Bandler and John Grinder type stuff. I am not an expert at NLP, I just know the basics. But I’ve listened to Tony Robbin’s Personal Power twice, and I see a lot of that going on the Obama campaign.

    And, hey, it works. Maybe next time the GOP candidate can try to make some positive associations. Run a consistent campaign. Be actually conservative, rather than Democrat-lite.

    Gotta give props where props are due. Obama ran a great campaign. He went to the Saddleback forum and did a bit on O’Rielly. He made a lot of gutsy moves and ran a polished and impressive campaign. I disagree with dudes espoused policies, but he seems like a good guy. Although, even the nicest guy isn’t the best person to have driving the bus, when he can’t steer and doesn’t know the brake from the accelerator. I’m just saying.

    But maybe that’s just cuz he hypnotized me.

    RE: Robbins and NLP. I was personally trained and certified in NLP by NLP co-founders Richard Bandler, Todd Epstein, Judith DeLozier and Robert Dilts. Tony Robbins learned NLP from Bandler and took the Fast Phobia Cure and interviewed on radio stations in Canada where NLP was yet unknown. Threatened by lawsuits by Mr. Bandler, Robbins changed the name of it from NLP to his own name NACS (Neuro-Associative Conditioning Systems). I also know first-hand from an NLP co-founder that Robbins’ first book was ghost written.

  17. 17 Shane S. November 9, 2008 at 7:30 am

    I don’t know about NLP, but Obama’s advertising contained many techniques of consumer psychology to influence people. Read the book Cashvertising to learn about them.

  18. 18 memetrics November 9, 2008 at 12:46 pm

    Eric: Could Well Be. Personal Power ain’t a bad overall program, from what I recall, but then he ends up divorcing the wife that was with him on the climb up to marry some Playboy bunny . . . I mean, can’t say that I blame him, but it certainly wasn’t consistent with a lot of the stuff he says. Cuz he has to go faster and harder and whatnot, and the woman who helped him build the empire was getting wrinkly . . .

    He’s all right, but haven’t listened to him in almost 15 years now, seriously. I still listen to the new stuff from Brian Tracy. Brian Tracy rocks.

    Shane . . . of course he did. All political adverts use varying mixes of consumer psychology and manipulation to try to sell you on the candidate. They are ads.
