Still The Video Rages On Into The Night

Despite InsiderAdvantage’s insistent belief that virtually nobody in America watched Obama’s “Victory” speech, let alone was the slightest bit impacted by the content of it, the hits just keep on coming!

3,230,756 views on YouTube in the one week that it’s lived (and lives on) at that one platform alone. Heck, give it another week and it’ll out-rate “Leave Britany Alone!”

Three days after Obama’s speech was broadcast on Big Old Static TV, Eleanor Clift make this rather astute (for a “traditional” media type) social media observation:

The cable commentators kept pounding away, but in another universe, the one inhabited by Obama’s base–the millennial generation–his Philadelphia speech became the most-viewed video on YouTube this week with almost 2.5 million hits so far. Maybe, just maybe, the cable critics and conservative pundits are talking to themselves.

Woe to the single planet dweller who neglects to make contact with a parallel universe. At some point, a parallel trajectory could very well shift. And run ”traditional” everything right off the road when it does.

The Obama “Victory” speech lives on here if you too might:

a.) Never have actually heard it yourself.

b.) Wish to put it on your MySpace page.

c.) Like to keep an eye on real numbers.

    SpaceyG: You judge people on their gender and race, too. Isn’t your family the bigoted one through and through, per your own statements?

    It’s amusing that you automatically think people are watching the speech and all are coming away thinking he is super. It just doesn’t enter your mind that his negatives are still climbing, does it?

    BTW Julio, I belong to the “I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammer” Facebook Group.


    i don’t think that the actor who portrayed frasier on cheers and later on his own show should be used either…or did you mean “grammar” which would be ironic since it is spelled incorrectly–do not confuse intelligence w/ poor typing skills–esp. on a blog which is rather different from a term paper…

    Darn, you beat me to it! Too bad nothing ever sinks in with SpaceyG.

    Did you know she is a woman, by the way?

    Well, I have downloaded it 4 times because the first one was so grainy that it was hard to see. The second time it cut out in the middle, the third time I finally got to skim through the parts I missed and the last time I showed my wife.

    So, how many of the “millions” of views were just the same people accessing the image multiple times, or liberal blog readers trying to pad the stats by having it refresh repeatedly?

    The speech was terrible because it proved that he was lying about not knowing about the statements, which means he knew it was something that would have been better to cover up. It means he loses credibility and the image of him being something new and different is shattered. It’s being replaced by the reality of him being a not quite yet 2/3 term Senator with a pleasant speaking voice, and ties to hate mongers.

    It relates to Georgia because she threw in the useless reference to the useless Insider Advantage, duh!

  6. SpaceyG is sneaky that way…quick reference to IA then on with the national stuff. With Obama’s fan base being the college kids, I bet 50,000 are responsible for all of those hits. Remember being that age when you could listen to the same song 8 times in a row and not be tired of it? Or you had watched Monty Python’s Holy Grail so many times you could recite along with it. Uh oh, I just outed myself as an uber nerd in high school, didn’t I?
