If you wanna know how scared the Republican Party is of Obama, just check the homepage of the Republican National Committee’s official site, GOP.com.
One name you won’t find on that homepage is... McCAIN.
Seriously. John McCain is the Republican candidate for president of these United States. Why doesn’t the RNC want McCain’s name or face on its website?
Oh, wait... something just popped up on that GOP page. It’s a link to the “McCain Climate Change Plan.” But within a minute, poof, it disappears. It is one of a variety of rotating links.
Wow. There is not one standing link to JohnMcCain.com anywhere on the Republican Party’s homepage!
Why? Because that would take up valuable digital real estate that’s better used bashing Barack Obama. As in:
“Obama’s Bad Week in Review”
“Obama Lobbyist Hypocrisy”
“Obama’s Iraq Backtrack”
If you thought Team Hillary threw the kitchen sink at him... the Republicans are throwing the bathtub. And probably the toilet too, before long.
Matter fact, the Republican National Committee today launched a new website – MeetBarackObama.com – totally devoted to attacks.
To me, that means the contest is already over. The Republicans aren’t even selling their own candidate!
Now what about the Democratic National Committee website, Democrats.org? They’ve got a big ol’ picture of Obama on their homepage. (They must be proud of their guy.) And there’s a prominent link to BarackObama.com.
Democrats.org also takes a subtler approach to negative propaganda. You gotta click a link like “McCain Myth Buster: John McCain and the Truth” to get to the attacks.
Two different approaches, that’s for sure.
