Being led down the path!

Being led down the path!

Never before had one witnessed such an accomplished use of manipulation, propaganda, imagery and public relations wizardry to sell the public a man who was to take the baton from Bush and run with it in the race to destroy the economy, the rights of the people and help birth a nation totally controlled by those who have always lurked in the shadows of power.

I disagree, samD

Hitler was much more effective at propaganda than Obama. However, I think there are some reasons for that. Of course everyone knows that the German economy was truly in the crapper, much worse than ours, and Hitler gave the people a sense of national identity and a specific target for anger over the economic and social "injustice" the people faced. Something that is not addressed is the lack of opposing media that Hitler enjoyed. With the internet and so many channels of news, the government is not as free to operate as Hitler's was. I wonder how different things would be if communications were as limited as they were in the late 1930s

And, my dear runaway,

If the bear hadn't stopped to shit, he would have caught the rabbit.
Bad analogy, if there was an internet, Hitler would never have made it.
