Obama's Crappy Website

Obama may have run the most web-savvy presidential campaign to date, but his new WhiteHouse.gov site is pedestrian at best, the Washington Post reports. The site lacks the technology to send out mass emails and text messages, one of Obama's staple campaign tactics, and for a long time, thanks to bureaucratic red tape, it could only link to sites ending in .gov or .mil. While Obama's first presidential speech garnered 1 million views on his YouTube channel, a subsequent speech by Attorney General Eric Holder only nabbed 25,000 views. The site has already broken its own promise of posting legislation for public comment five days before Obama signs it into law, one of only two campaign promises that Obama has broken outright, according to Politifact.com.
