2. Nice get

Mitt & company wouldn't have used the Colorado shootings to hide
this "twitter buy?"

BTW Obama has almost 18,000,000 followers and I doubt any were paid to do so.

7. Romney Speaks and has Wa-Wa voting machines on his mind... probably a Bain investment subsidiary

 

Click his image to see what the thinker thinks about Mitt Romney and what kind of Wawa sandwich Mitt Romney may of had on his mind since Bain Capital and one of its subsidiaries invested in a voting machine company of which will be counting many of our votes in the up coming National election... go figure... no wonder he is hiding his tax returns... don't want to let that cat out of the bag now do he as tweedy bird would say.

Just click the speaker ...

10. this book tells all about how that game is played

I heard an interview with the author, who exposes the tactics played in online advertising and promotion:



I've spent a good part of my career in advertising and promotion. I'm also a webmaster. I thought I'd heard it all, but no, this book exposes many of the shady online tactics--like what Romney is doing with buying followers.
