Obama campaign more active online, Pew says

(CNN) - Barack Obama's campaign is making better use of the Internet and social media to reach voters than presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney, according to a new study.

The Pew Research Center's Project for Excellence in Journalism found that Obama's campaign was more active than Romney's and generated more response from users on all major platforms, including Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and the campaign websites, in the weeks following Romney's clinching of the Republican nomination.

    The way the negative adds are coming in, they don't influence me at all. TRUTH carries a lot more weight than lies.
    If you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all. Some of them are so ridiculous, it would take a moron to believe them in the first place.
    SO if you are going to campaign back it up and stand on your record.

    Of course... Obama needs all of the young, uneducated naive kids to vote for him "because he is cool". But Obama won't tell them he's destroying their future and country with massive debt. He won't tell them they'll never be able to find a job because his policies are anti-business. This country will be paying for DECADES because of the Obama disaster. We are just seeing the immediate affects. The long term affects will be far more devastating. Obama and the Democrats are destroying the country at lightning speed and will always blame others for it. It is the standard leftist tactic. THEY caused the 2008 financial meltdown with their free houses for people who can't afford them program and then blamed Bush who had absolutely NOTHING to do with it. He just happened to be sitting in the Whitehouse when their houses of cards collapsed, as they ALWAYS do.

    Someone, quick, tell Mittens' campaign that they need to be using the intertubes to spread the word more...apparently not everyone is aware that it's his "turn" to be POTUS yet.
