Republicans Pounce On Obama's Jobs Statement With Twitter Hashtag

Savvy promoted tweet may still be a missed opportunity for RNC

The latest battle in the political hashtag war kicked off at 11:01 A.M. today, when president Obama told reporters, "We've created 4.3 million jobs over the past 27 months—over 800,000 just this year alone; the private sector is doing just fine." It took almost no time at all for Republican National Committee research director Joe Pounder to get the CNN clip online and within minutes, the RNC launched a promoted tweet by RNC chairman Reince Priebus under the hashtag #doingfine.
