Mitt Romney’s Tumblr has never reblogged anyone (except Romney Response, which is paid for by Romney for President, Inc.) They certainly haven’t reblogged one of my GIFs.
Today, the Chicago Young Republicans posted a recruitment video on YouTube that’s also a parody of “Call Me Maybe.” This will probably go viral. A few Chicagoans will probably sign-up to make phone calls for Romney because of the video. 
Maybe this GIF of the CJR’s dancing with Romney’s book could be the Romney campaign’s first legitimate reblog?

We bet a $20 donation to the Homicide Watch Kickstarter that Barack Obama’s Tumblr reblogs this first. That’s a challenge, guys.

Mitt Romney’s own senior adviser says Romney agrees with Obama that health care law is a penalty, not a tax

As a teenager, Obama was in a car accident while drag racing in Hawaii. Obama wasn’t behind the wheel of the car, but while he and some friends were racing, the car he was riding in flipped and landed upside down. The other car turned around and found Obama, who had crawled out a back window, laughing hysterically. “You can’t drive for shit!” he kept telling the driver.

Young Barack Obama in Love: A Girlfriend’s Secret Diary

When Barack Obama met Genevieve Cook in 1983 at a Christmas party in New York’s East Village, it was the start of his most serious romance yet. But as the 22-year-old Columbia grad began to shape his future, he was also struggling with his identity: American or international? Black or white? Drawing on conversations with both Cook and the president, David Maraniss, in an adaptation from his new Obama biography, has the untold story of the couple’s time together.

Macon Phillips, of the Executive Office of the President, tweets this striking image of President Obama seated in the bus where Rosa Parks initiated her quest for civil rights.

Amazing pic. (EDIT: It’s worth noting the bus is currently in the Henry Ford Museum in Detroit. Thanks Margarita Noriega!)

Clearly, the photo of the day.

A personal appeal to the Obama team tumblrers

Hi! Remember me? At the end of last year I led a successful campaign to get you guys to follow me. I don’t need to re-hash that tale. You know it already. Apparently you even love telling about it.

That campaign was not successful without the help of some lovely fellow tumblrers. Namely imwithkanye, who screencapped my post, the one that got your attention, that you eventually reblogged and caused you to follow me.

You have now reblogged imwithkanye multiple times, including today! The sad thing is: you don’t follow him.

I think this is a major oversight on your part.

He would never tell you this. You see some people (imwithkanye, I’m assuming) are above begging. I, on the other hand, am not.

Some might say this appeal is me taking this Obama thing just a little too far. You already follow me so how dare I go out of my way to get you to start following my friends? I get that. But here’s the thing: I did not get here today, on tumblr, being followed by the President’s social media team without a little help from my friends.

Which is why I think you’ll understand when I ask: Will you please follow imwithkanye?

Co-sign. 

imwithkanye is a good follow any day.

I’m with this!
