Obama had a town hall meeting on Twitter, and the data are in: it's still about the money, stupid. Jobs, debt and taxes. The dark blue mountains represent the tweets (per minute) about taxes, the red ones represent the tweets about jobs, and the light blue mountains correspond with tweets about debt.
The tiny purple molehills? Tweets about Bush. The professional leftists can't let W go, but the overwhelming majority of Americans are living in 2011.
It's your economy and your big mess now, Obama. You inherited nothing. You volunteered for this job.
The spotlight is on you. The clock is ticking.
