On Monday that meant the hashtags #ObamaCampaignIn3Words and #RomneyCampaignIn3Words took hold on Twitter. And, surprise, most of the twitterati’s comments about the two candidates, highlighted with those two headlines, were not so positive.
Describing the Obama campaign in three words on Tuesday on the micro-blogging site were these offerings: “Karl Freakin Marx”; “Dumb, Dumb, Dumb"; “Attacking Romney’s Success”; “Making America Canada”; “Dead People Voting”; and “Blame the Altitude" — the latter a reference to Al Gore’s speculation that Obama’s mediocre debate showing might, just might, have been caused by the altitude in Denver.
A small fraction of the tweetage for the president was positive, such as: “Four. More. Years” and “You Lose Romney.”
The #RomneyCampaignIn3Words hashtag also didn’t appear to be designed to draw out high praise for the Republican presidential nominee. That tag came with these offerings: “President of 1%";” “Screw Sesame Street”; “Trust, don't verify”; “An Empty Suit”; “Flip Flopping Phony”; and “We're not going to let our campaign be dictated by fact checkers” -- apparently not even on three-word Twitter memes. Romney got a few nice mentions on Twitter too, such as: “Delivering More Jobs” and “America is Exceptional.”
