From Gary Bauer, on July 7:
Yesterday President Obama held the first Twitter town hall event, answering questions from Twitter users all over the country. Fortunately for the president, he did not have to limit his responses to 140 characters.
Speaker John Boehner asked a very simple question that has been on the minds of many Americans for some time: “After embarking on a record spending binge that’s left us deeper in debt, where are the jobs?”
The Wall Street Journal reports that it took the president 3,044 characters, the equivalent of 22 Tweets, to say job growth has been insufficient.
Why am I not surprised?
