Conservatives need to get with the program

Conservatives need to get with the program concerning technology

Okay, so the CPAC convention is not over yet but I know they had speakers on Friday. So why are there no videos published on their website? I am really disheartened when I see Conservative groups unable to keep up with technology and the needs of their followers. We’ve come a long way since 2007 when Obama used Facebook and the web to dominate us. We are all web-savvy now and I think we’re at the point where we’re getting out our message even better than he did during his campaign. As a regular Facebook user, I am not above posting a link or two about something stupid the Obama has done that day. I don’t even need to comment to my Democrat family and friends. They can see for themselves the stories that they don’t see reported on the View, David Letterman, or any of their other liberal shows. Getting out the information, the truth, is key. Communication is key.

However, even with all of our communication improvements, I still see missed opportunities quite often out there in cyberspace. We’re going to need all of our ducks in a row to take back our country. I don’t necessarily see the RNC as a unifying force for a Senate and presidential win in 2012. I think we need to find the organizations that we trust – and the candidates that we trust – and support them. Their job is to make it easier for us to do so.

This is an open thread and my pet peeve for the day…
