Fred Thompson Loves Bloggers

It is no secret to those following the Fred Thompson campaign to date that he loves bloggers and the communications advantages afforded by the Web. One of his strategies is to effectively leverage the web, online media and various efficiencies that technology provides candidates today.

Today, we have yet another example of this with a Washington Post article entitled "Republican Fred Thompson aims for blogger-in-chief." Blogger-in-chief --- cool title. Fred will probably take that title this year prior to a better title next year.

One of the money quotes from the WP article is when Fred talks to Pajamas Media and says: "By empowering individuals and building communities, the Internet provides a way of going around the inside-the-beltway crowd to reach people in numbers unheard of not that long ago."

Talking directly to voters will be beneficial to Fred Thompson. It will demonstrate his authenticity and avoid the main stream media. An unfiltered message has been beneficial so far. Why tamper with success?

Fred Thompson has built one of the best candidate websites of all possible candidates with his I'mWithFred site. You can visit it at -
