Is President Obama’s final episode going to be a snark-filled argument on Twitter, YouTube and other web candy?
It seems so, as the president takes to the web with irrelevant pitches that seem better suited for Comedy Central. Some of his snarky pitches are clever (such as the Lena Dunham video that says: “Your first time shouldn’t be with just anybody. You want to do it with a great guy.”
Content aside, I thought the video was endearing, playful and completely ineffective in terms of closing argument for Obama. This election is fast closing in on President Obama. He should stop worrying about trying to move Twitter’s trending and start moving voter trends.
The ground is shifting under Obama’s feet. Besides the clusterf**k of Benghazi that still looms as a campaign killer, polls show voters moving away from Obama in remarkable numbers. If he can’t slow this Obama fatigue down, he’ll lose on Nov. 6.
Can you slow it down with clever Lena Dunham ads and snarky sidebar pitches on the web? Take a look at this piece that attempts to answer whether the web as led the Obama campaign astray.
