Barack Obama Gets It

Those of you who are regular readers know of my fondness for seeking and exploiting methods of delivering content that bypasses the Gatekeepers in the Traditional Media (Legacy Media).

I have also championed these methods in local party meetings, forums, and in my discussions with conservative grass roots activists...but rarely heeded or prodded for more specifics.

Most Republicans still use mailing lists as high-tech phone trees or as primitive blogging platforms.

Most do not get it all.

Barack Obama does, as does an increasing number of nutroots activists. Does
Moveon.org or Daily Kos mean anything to you?

The primary difference between readers of lefty blogs and righty blogs is that those who read lefty blogs are more likely to get off their butts and work for their political agenda, volunteer for the local party and party candidates.

They are also more likely to realize that News Papers, TV and Radio are yesterday's information delivery systems.

On demand video is one of the new tools that very few Republicans are utilizing because they do not get it. They are clueless.

President-elect Barack Obama gets it:




Here are the preliminary stats for this video to back up my assertion:

where exactly do you get facts to substantiate your assertion that left wing bloggers do more than right wing?

and why is someone who said that there is only one president at a time doing this in the first place. this is extremely inappropriate conduct for a president elect.

i wish the guy well, but he needs to stop acting like the whole world cannot wait for his term to begin. that's not realistic considering the fact that almost half of voters didn't vote for him.
