39. Obama could have bypassed the mass media by activating the volunteers
Edited on Thu Sep-29-11 10:11 PM by Lydia Leftcoast
who worked so hard for his election. He had thousands of them in every state. They were still fired up. Someone who really WANTED to enact a progressive agenda would have told his volunteers to pressure their Congresscritters and to get their friends and family to pressure the Congresscritters and to pressure their local media.

He could have sent Democratic Congresscritters and Senators out to do news conferences and hold events in their districts. I've noticed that local news media pretty automatically report on their Congresscritters' and Senators' doings.

It could have been done. Obama chose not to do it.
