Comments on The Belmont Club,
"Words and the man"

In order to create followers, the Transformational Leader has to be very careful in creating trust, and their personal integrity is a critical part of the package that they are selling. In effect, they are selling themselves as well as the vision.

Rezco. The one thing that can destroy a politician are the twin convictions among his audience that he is a Hypocrite and that he is playing them for Suckers. For some reason children are usually better then adults at detecting the fraud and adults are better then children at detecting a megalomaniac.Obama is surrounded by cynical frauds and may be one himself. The public could handle that he is a successful fraud if the machine wasn’t so cynical in manipulating and abusing people. The media have worked to infantilize the audience so they could be easily manipulated by mass imagery. The risk is that that may make them more likely to reject a false messiah who is revealed to be a fraud.

buddy larsen,
(who proposed putting Obama on a Mount Mushroar)
Let's start a movement to change the name from Mount Rushmore to Mount Limbaugh. Just the entertainment value of watching the Obamanots foam at the mouth will be worth a little trouble. Perhaps the Alinskyites will try to have it blown up like the Taliban did to Binyamin Buddhas
