I just recently picked up on the new trend in internet marketting. Apparently nothing catches people’s eye more than the will of their dear leader “urging you” to refinance your mortgage, go back to school or grab some other goodies he’s giving us all for free.
This is one of the more disturbing trends I’ve seen on the internet – which is saying a lot – since the advertisers wouldn’t be using this technique if people didn’t find Obama’s wishes compelling. It’s the sort of thing I would expect in North Korea, or an African Country where the dictator renames the days of the week after himself. And seeing the will of your leader – the person that can coerce you to no end without it even making the news – as a better reason to do something than what you yourself desire, is a bad idea no matter what country you’re in.
