Why couldn't Obama cover all of his polices during that 30 minute infomercial?

obama's presidency is anything but a done deal.

@DontTreadOnMe,
To be honest - (not that I've watched, but word of mouth of course so take it for what that is worth) - infomercial is to touch people more rather than relay facts - like any infomercial. It is not geared to information gathers...at least my take.

Basically I am not a fan of advertising and I despise infomercials.

Infomercials like what Obama put out are designed with one purpose - convince you to do something you normally would not do.

The whole idea is to baffle you with slick bull ****.

The vast majority of people that buy into this type of sales pitch suffer from terrible buyers remorse 2 weeks after the purchase.

The seller has what they want and the buyer is stuck with useless junk.

Are you speaking from personal experience? Will you vote for Obama now?

I watched it later. I believe he set out to demonstrate that he can talk like a regular guy, to regular people, and connect with them. While not unbiased; I'd guess he was wildly successful. It would be tough for anyone with a brain in their head to listen to the man speak, and then buy into any of the more outlandish accusations against him. This regular Joe would very much like to have a beer with him.

@OCCOM BILL,
I think that by buying time on all channels, it comes across as Presidential. When is the only time you can find the exact same thing on every channel? Presidential speech. The effect is certainly overwhelming.

@engineer,
Overwhelming, I wish. Were that the case; Ross Perot would have solved a lot of these problems before they got this big. Wink

@OCCOM BILL,
I saw something like this about him (but not in infomercial form) I believe it was at the DNC when he was officially nominated. Sort of showed where he came from, grew up, current family life and I also thought it was well done. Like you said it made you want to go out and have a beer with the guy.

@Linkat,
I'm not a huge Obama fan (of course I would vote for him over McCain), but I thought the infomercial was well done. Got the key messages across, tugged on heart strings like a commercial should. Well done. Obama has a helluva team working for him.

yech. i can't stand them either. although used to get inspired by those old tony robbins infoms. that dude was mister calm... still didn't buy his books though.

if i had my druthers, i would have liked better having obama basically do a sort of fireside chat. but i understand why they went with the infom.

Obama ad scores high Wednesday night ratings

More people tuned in to watch Barack Obama's infomercial last night than usually watch TV at all on Wednesdays.

The Hollywood Reporter says: "The Obama special was seen by 26.3 million viewers across broadcasters CBS, NBC and Fox, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings. If you add Spanish-language broadcaster Univision, that total climbs to 29.9 million."

On average, this outperformed all the usual broadcast programming in the 7 p.m. timeslot.

This season, a cumulative 23.1 million viewers each week have been tuning in those three networks on Wednesdays.

NBC was the winner, with the most viewers of all the networks (9.8 million).

Meanwhile, ABC -- the network that missed out on airing the Obama ad -- showed its regular Wednesday night show, "Pushing Daisies" ... which got a 16 percent boost in audience.
