    Social media on the campaign trail will not make much of a difference this time around, but give it four more years! Oh boy! However, social media is in danger of dying all together if employees are allowed to continue to ask for passwords. Certainly, the best way to not give your password, is NOT have one. If you get me meaning! Facebook and the like should already be talking to lawyers about a class action suit, don't you think?

    You guys/gals have a tuff job......having to rehash the politics of the re-election process. It"s kind of like eating the same meal over and over again for months on end.........I'm getting bloated and my taste buds have died. How many hours are you going to devote to the "Etch-A-Skech" ? But I really do feel that the Republican candidates are running themselves out of a win. I'm already tired of these guys. I guess I'll stick with President Obama. He is a real gentleman.

    The social media is the easiest way for a person to get his/her opinion into the light of day.

      Just what health care needs, a tutroial on how to be an obnoxious patient and throw your weight around at the hospital. Good thing no one pays any attention to CNN anymore.

    This is brilliant, the etch a sketch story, a story from the inside of the Romney campaign, is turned into a a frivolous rehash of the use of social media.

    The real story is that we get inside confirmation, as if we needed more, of a serious character flaw of Romney’s.

    A story with some substance is turned into a silly discussion about twitter, and social media.

    Good job Wolf.

      American exceptionalism is emoetimss used in a positive sense most frequently by the neoconservatives and the Glenn Beck / Bill O'Reilly group, but not exclusively by them. Wikipedia's article gives a pretty good discussion of the subject although I hate to say read the Wikipedia article to the Last Psychiatrist himself!
