Same ol' spin

Barack Obama talks to the American people before he announced he was running for President in 2008.
RealScoop utilizes proven voice analysis technology to analyze statements made by public figures. The BELIEVABILITY METER™ analyzes each celebrity video second by second, displaying the real-time results in a color-coded manner from left to right. The most believable statements are green, gradually turning red as they become more questionable.
This one is fun as it was made before Barack Obama announced he was running for President. And it demonstrates the obvious spin that is put on your typical "to the people" speech that so many politicians give. This was most likely a rehearsed speech and probably had a teleprompter going during as well, but it is stiill interesting to watch the Meter on specific points. Is running for President a tough decision? (:10) Does he really believe that it's all bad in DC and the economy? (:50) The ending is fun as well as he says he "believes in you" (2:22) and "looks forward to continuing our conversation in the weeks and months to come". (3:05)
