One of the points made at the American Majority Activist Training was that conservatives and the right used to “own” the new media, the internet, the word-wide web and such. Now the liberal left has leapfrogged them.
The furor over President Obama’s speech to school kids across the nation is an example. President Bush the younger did the same thing. He just wasn’t as good at it. He didn’t have a Facebook page or Twitter. True, those media were still in their infancy. But Obama is taking advantage of the new, newer and newest media almost as soon as it is developed. The Republicans are still waiting for the e-mail.
