Medvedev, Obama, Ahmadinejad, Tariceanu – online politics

I know I’ve promised to keep out of politics but these days I could easily notice how Romanian bloggers are exposed to foreign media and how they react. As predicted, Mr. Barack Obama vs. Mr. John McCain are the main topics on the blogs and almost no one noticed that the Russian President Dmitry Medvedev became the world’s most powerful vlogger.

A comment from Foreign Policy (regarding the upcoming state-of-the-nation address): “the Kremlin message machine has been working overtime to portray it as a foreign problem and an opportunity for Russia. It should also be interesting to see if Medvedev will mention the newly elected U.S. president in the speech.

On the other hand, speaking of famous politicians, Mr. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad decided that he has more important things to do and now his blog seems deserted – let’s see if Mr. Medvedev will keep vlogging after 2 years or this is just another campaign.

Last but not least, if you’re going to search Obama” or “Basescu” on Google Romania you’re probably going to see the adsense campaign promoting Mr. Tariceanu’s new blog (Romanian prime-minister).

  1. It’s funny to see how
    1. Obama (that does mostly social reforms, rather than the would-be-but-not-so liberal reforms of Tariceanu) and
    2. Basescu (who clearly disregards Tariceanu)
    are considered to be great searching terms for Tariceanu.

    Looking on the Internet media market, I’d say that Tariceanu put so much money on the promotion, that the Basescu keyword was just a way of saying “we have too much money on Internet, so we might as well spend it poorly”. 😀
