A brand new youtube channel appeared today, simply called:
The first youtube:
As the New York times noted:
When Jeb Bush and Hillary Rodham Clinton announced their presidential candidacies this year, they released gauzy videos showing voters who either agreed with their policy platforms, or whose lives had been affected by them.
But the initial 2016 campaign video unveiled on Sunday by Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey, focuses on one life: His own.
In a two-minute video released by his aides before his official campaign kickoff on Tuesday, Mr. Christie talks about why he is the “blunt” figure who has been criticized for telling off teachers at town hall meetings.
The video, titled “Telling It Like It Is,” which is expected to be Mr. Christie’s slogan, affirms a basic fact about his candidacy: It will be built first and foremost on selling his personal style. There is no mention in the video of policy; Mr. Christie is at odds with some of the most conservative voters over an array of positions.
There also is no mention of his record as governor of his state, which has seen a record number of credit downgrades under Mr. Christie’s tenure, and has lingering pension problems.
The second youtube is a live stream scheduled to go up on Wednesday at 10 AM:
There will likely be no mention of pension problems (or Greenwich Township) in that one either.
