From chants of "Obama! Obama! Obama!" and songs being taught to SCHOOL CHILDREN, the left is really trying hard (& have been for awhile) to hypnotize America.
It ain't workin'...

I remember attending a group talk (session? discussion? seminar?) circa 1984-ish held in a college dorm where I was attending. The leader (cultist? budding lefty lib? community organizer in training?) was going to HYPNOTIZE us all! We, the happy volunteers excited to go under, all laid down... slow breathing, quiet, soft voices, yadda yadda yadda ... and ummm.... I waited..... while others seem to go under...... but not me.
I tried to give myself over to it - isn't that what you're supposed to do? Give the POWER OF YOUR MIND to someone else? For me, zip, nadda... nothing happened. I think the people in the group I was in, who semi-appeared hypnotized were just following the power of suggestion. They wanted it 'so bad' so they just followed what the instructor said. (hmm, sounds like liberals?)
Is hypnosis real? I'm really not even sure. I think the power of suggestion can be quite real. If people really want to believe something, they can make 'it' happen whatever it might be.
I think people who were briefly hypnotized to believe the crap ... errr... stuff coming out of BHO's mouth, have really started waking up. Some are snapping out of it very quickly. This week I saw a posting on a blog from Hillary supporters, previous sufferers of BDS who now boldly profess their new love and admiration for Laura and President George W. Bush.
Why the turn around for them? Did they just snap out of liberal hypnosis? Maybe... Interesting how over 1000 people have felt the need to comment on this one posting. Does the sentiment ring true for all their readers? Some of their words:
If you have been reading us for any length of time, you know that we used to make fun of “Dubya” nearly every day…parroting the same comedic bits we heard in our Democrat circles, where Bush is still, to this day, lampooned as a chimp, a bumbling idiot, and a poor, clumsy public speaker.
Oh, how we RAILED against Bush in 2000…and how we RAILED against the surge in support Bush received post-9/11 when he went to Ground Zero and stood there with his bullhorn in the ruins on that hideous day.
... & what turned these bloggers around:
As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.
The Bushes went and met privately with these families for HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.
If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.
You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, Geraldine Ferraro, Stephanie Tubbs Jones, and the other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.
Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, you’ll answer to us
I don't think these guys will be buying the Oba-Mao t-shirts then...?
If a group of previous Democrats who are also gay, Hillary supporters can turn around and recover from BDS, there is real HOPE for America... They also state Nov 10th, they are no longer Democrats and are now Independents. Their recent posts even support Sarah Palin ... they really have fully recovered...
Annnnnnnd, SNAP... you're back in the room...
