When Obama goes prime time — why you should listen

Listen to the speeches — but with a different perspective.

Every con game uses three ingredients against the target: Sell the dream. Push the greed button. Stress urgency.

 Every con man walking free or in jail is an articulate speaker. Who would give their trust to a man who could not use the right words to convince his targets to trust him?

Articulate speaking is no way to judge or rate the integrity of a person.

–Mark S. McGrew

The dream: Listen for him to sell you the dream

The greed button: Listen for him to assure you it’s not coming out of your pocketbook

Urgency: Listen for him to tell you it needs to happen swiftly

Instead of just listening to another moving speech — listen to the words with the new perspective.
