Obama, Romney Ignoring Their Best Attacks

August 31, 2012

You may have thought this year’s presidential election was brutal on the airwaves and the stump, but the battle has also been raging nonstop on Twitter. If you heard an attack anywhere, it was most likely tweeted several times as well. This provides an incredible opportunity to see which messages resonate or fall flat. Continue [...]

Is Mitt Romney Buying Twitter Followers?

July 21, 2012

I’m not saying he bought them, but Romney’s follower stats have taken a sharp and sudden rise since Friday 5PM EST. Could it be a weekend blitz? Twitter noticed. Personally, I think this is too obvious for the Romney campaign to have done. It’s more likely somebody is trying to plant a story to embarrass [...]

What would Romney do?

June 8, 2012

Funny enough, few people are talking about what Obama or Romney would do if elected. Mitt Romney refuses to detail his plans, such as what departments he would cut. Polls have shown repeatedly that people like hearing about “spending cuts” but hate hearing about what actual programs would be eliminated. In Massachusetts, Romney admitted he [...]

The Primary is finally over, the War begins

April 11, 2012

It’s over! Rick Santorum dropped out of the GOP primaries to avoid a bruising defeat in his home-state of Pennsylvania that would cast serious doubts on his more serious 2016 candidacy. We will welcome him back in three years as a “major contender for the GOP front-runner,” and the “true social conservative” facing the fiscal [...]

October 19, 2011

I’ve been having fun with word clouds tonight, so I decided to put one more together. The best part of tonight’s CNN debate, from an entertainment standpoint, was the face-off between Governors Mitt Romney and Rick Perry. It’s hard to say whether it will play out better for Romney or Perry, although I think the [...]

@MittRomney: Tweeting about Obama, not fellow GOP

July 25, 2011

Nobody can help but notice that @MittRomney has a single goal in his run for the GOP nomination: attack Obama.
