Criticizing Mitt Romney‘s campaign ideas as being too simplistic, President Barack Obama used Twitter as a rubric during a fundraiser in Baltimore on Tuesday. Romney’s campaign message would “fit on a tweet,” Obama said. With characters to spare.
“The good news is, the American people generally agree with our vision,” Obama said, according to a pool report. “If you just put in front of them issue after issue, and you present the Democratic approach and the Republican approach, we win.”
The then went on to compare his agenda and platform to that of his opponent’s, citing its lack of depth. “Because folks are still hurting right now, the other side feels that it’s enough for them to just sit back and say, ‘Things aren’t as good as they should be, and it’s Obama’s fault,'” Obama added. “And you can pretty much put their campaign on, on a tweet and have some characters to spare.”
Indeed, social media references have even wiggled their way into campaign attacks.
