Four years later, these groups claim they are practically writing the party platform ahead of the Republican National Convention here next week.

"We're extremely happy that the tea party can have this type of influence," said Ryan Hecker, a legal adviser for FreedomWorks, the conservative advocacy group founded by Dick Armey. "We've definitely taken over the Republican Party."

More than 100 delegates met Monday at the Marriott Waterside to draft the Republican platform in a sneak peek of the Aug. 27-30 convention. The platform is a 50-page document that provides policy statements that will guide Mitt Romney's presidential campaign from here on out.

If elected, Mitt Romney will be nothing more than a puppet for the teabaggers. We must do everything in our power to ensure that does not happen.

New word submitted to Urban Dictionary: "Mitticism"


Definition: An unclever attempt at wit or stupid remark made by Mitt Romney.

Example: "Mitt Romney's latest Mitticism is calling the president's criticism of his tax policy 'Obamaloney'."

I hope they accept it!

I'll update if it gets published at UrbanDictionary.com

New Twitter Political Index has Obama besting Romney

What is the Twitter Political Index?

The Twitter Political Index is a daily measurement that evaluates the sentiment of Twitter users feelings about the candidates, Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, relative to the more than 400 million Tweets sent about all other topics each day.

Check it out here: http://election.twitter.com/

More info at:

Explosive growth in political conversation on Twitter has created a massive data set that will form the informational foundation for the new Index.  The so-called “Twindex” aspires to reinforce traditional public polling by capturing the nuances of public opinion that are often missed in traditional polls.  Traditional polling is often very limited because, among other reasons, they use less specific questions and target a relatively small amount of people.

The Twitter Blog explained how the Twindex operates, saying, “Each day, the Twindex evaluates and weighs the sentiment of Tweets mentioning Obama or Romney relative to the more than 400 million Tweets sent on all other topics. For example, a score of 73 for a candidate indicates that Tweets containing their name or account name are on average more positive than 73 percent of all Tweets.”

Traditional polls are more reliable but this is fun to watch. I have no clue how they could weigh the sentiment of Tweets, but it's quite interesting.

If anything I think this "Twindex" shows that the youth are much more in favor of Obama. Sure hope they show up on election day.
