The power of the Internet during this presidential campaign

…Is incredibly important.

It isn’t only the mainstream media that presidential candidates have to worry about. Youtube and blogs have thrown some new hurdles into the race.

I think it is interesting that Internauts are grabbing hold during this campaign and creating a new way to “get the message out”.

Check out the videos below. First, John McCain is ridiculed by song and just recently Barack Obama is nailed to the wall.

Before you watch the next two videos understand that I do not in any way condone taking snippets of what someone says and using it to your benefit. I put these videos up to illustrate my point about how the Internet is important in this presidential race. I, also, think it can be watched from an entertainment viewpoint.

And, Obama’s biggest fan! I wonder if his wife likes this video, I got a crush on Obama?

I received an email about Obama from my mother, yesterday.

Barack Obama won’t wear an American flag on his lapel (Pumpkin insert: here is link to read Obama’s explanation) but on the wall of his Houston campaign office: a Cuban flag with a picture of Communist mass murderer Che Guevara. (Click picture for video.)

Interesting enough My Fox Houston added this bit of text under the video. Hmmm….I wonder why??? I would, also, like to know why My Fox Houston never asked the volunteers what was up with that HUGE Cuban flag while they were touring the office.

The office featured in this video is funded by volunteers of the Barack Obama Campaign and is not an official headquarters for his campaign.

This is the second report from My Fox Houston blowing on this hot topic. Notice that they refer to the office as an OFFICIAL Obama campaign office when it is not. It is a volunteer office.

And, this is a video of one of the Obama volunteers from the office in question, Maria Isabel, NOT RESPONDING to the issue when I think it is extremely important that she does. I, personally, do not think Obama had anything to do with this flag issue. Is it his fault that idiots can be volunteers and open up offices for a campaign because that is their democratic right?

Official response from the Official office of Barack Obama:

“This is a volunteer office that is not in any way controlled by the Obama campaign. We were disappointed to see this picture because it is both offensive to many Cuban-Americans — and Americans of all backgrounds — and because it does not reflect Senator Obama’s views. Barack Obama has been very clear in putting forward a Cuba policy that is based on one principle: freedom for the Cuban people.” — Obama Campaign

Just for the fun of it: David Letterman’s top ten signs your presidential campaign is in trouble.
