I was furious in his debates because he never answered the question, he usually made a joke about the person asking the question for not being as "brilliant" as he thinks he is.
I know many who claim he is a great orator, but if thats what they wanted they could have done alot better with Morgan Freeman, or even Ron Howard for that matter, Frozen Bluth Banana any
I was a communications major and i have yet to find ANYTHING the man has said that i would consider to be insightful.
i have noticed a plethora of NLP though, each sentence out his mouth is BRAZEN Nuero linguistics placement, but thats presidential talk for you.
It is clear that the "change" mantra has resonated with Obama supporters. Thirty-seven percent of his supporters cite "change" as the reason for their support, by far the largest single response category for his voters.
Other reasons given by those supporting Obama include his economic plan/ability to handle the economy, general agreement with his values or issues, the respondent's propensity to vote Democratic, Obama's support for the working and middle classes, his plan for the Iraq war, and his honesty.
These themes in general appear to reflect the dominant thrusts of the Obama campaign: change, fixing the economy, helping the working and middle classes, and Iraq.
