Possibly the quote of the century!
From commenter FreeThinke in THIS THREAD here at Always On Watch:
Sorry to have to be the one to say it, but Obama will win in November simply because he's so "cute." He has "charisma."
The average person doesn't know anything about "policy" and couldn't care less. Obama, whether YOU think so or not, has "Charisma."
Ever since the disaster of the Nixon-Kennedy debates, "Sex Appeal" has largely been the determining factor in American politics.
Most people do NOT think, do not KNOW, and do not CARE. They just FEEL.
If this were not true, why else do you think the Lie Factories of the Ad Industry have been so enormously successful?
The public has been deliberately "dumbed down" for the past hundred years. This has conditioned most of us to ACCEPT the ever growing amounts of [excrement] that gets forced down our throats every day.
We've been SEDUCED and then BRAINWASHED by crafty manipulators. There could be no other logical explanation for what has happened.
