Could you please explain why you can say that?
I mean seriously. You are saying Yes, sure he is hypnotizing crowds at his rallies, and over the TV in his speeches (not debates so much though). And "I" see nothing wrong with that. It's the way things are done, all over.
Heck, if McDonalds does subliminal messaging, they are gonna get slammed by the FCC - because it is illegal
But a rising star politician, who really has done NOTHING significant in his career except go for the next highest job position, can use techniques that are supposed to be only for clinical professionals to hypnotize massive amounts of people, and you think it's OKAY?

To fall for the hypnosis (again noting that EVERY public/media figure employs these tactics) one must remained focused on the speaker. If you are distracted, busy, biased, etc . . . you don't fall for the methods employed. But, again, this is not something unique to Obama . . .

If he is doing this , why is it that some people are not affected by it?
From the first day I heard him speak I've not liked him at all.

Have you guys ever looked into Reverse Speech. First go and listen to and read the lyrics of "Stairway to Heaven backwards" on YouTube. Then go and look up Reverse Speech Obama. Also there is an interesting occurence of several people passing out at his rallies, sometimes these people even pass out at the very same time.
