GOP targets president on gas prices with #Obamaonempty Twitter campaign
“The White House recently earned
accolades for its #40dollars Twitter
campaign, launched to help push through
a payroll tax cut extension.
Republicans are now running their own
campaign, #Obamaonempty, urging
Twitter users across the country to snap
photos of prices at the gas pump when
they fill up.
It’s part of a concerted effort by the GOP
to pin increasing gas prices on President
Obama after he trashed Republicans and
defended his energy record last Thursday,
POLITICO’s Darren Goode reported
The RNC Tweeted: “Today when you are at
the station, take a picture of the pump and
tweet us the photo- use the hashtag #
ObamaonEmpty. Great response so far!”
Twitterers from far and wide have sent in
pics: In Shreveport, La., regular hit $3.53 ,
in Virginia Beach it went to $3.63 , and in
New Port Richey, Fl., it was $3.75 ,
according to the submissions.
One Tweeter, @j_heals, pulled the two
campaigns together. Senate staffer Jeni
Healy Tweeted a photo showing a tank of
gas cost her $65.81 : “@RNC ugh @
whitehouse what $40 doesnt cover: A tank
of gas Payroll “tax break” wont help at the
gas pump #ObamaOnEmpty.”
As per the Politico .

Good day to you all . I write this first about us type post with the intention of self-aggrandizement …. Whoa now , just a second you say … But its not what you think . I speak for the promotion of our new website and not of myself . I’ll leave the self promotion to the denizens of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
As our blog readership grows it is hoped that the growth will manifest itself in visibility for our project. The blog was started as a way for us to supply the site’s editorial page with content on a minute to minute basis without the hassle of constantly updating the site .
It is working well in all respects but one ; a great deal of our readership is viewing us at the WordPress blog address and it would be much more productive for us if you viewed our posts from the website , thus building our exposure to the wider world of the web .
We need video submissions to get the site rolling and to capture and hold people’s interest . Please if you or your friends have first person vids of importance tell them about us .
We are very excited about the ” sunshine project ” as we call it , but we can’t succeed without viewer input . Spread the word and help us spread the light . Thanks , JG
