Top 12 Tweets From The Ohio Speech Showdown

by Lauren Moore, published

Today in the swing state of Ohio, Mitt Romney and President Obama scheduled competing economic speeches at the same time. Gov. Romney’s speech, which lasted 18 minutes, started a little early to make room for President Obama’s 54-minute remarks. As an audience we were pleased to catch both presidential hopefuls campaign speeches and this is definitely underscored by the tweets we managed to come across. Here are the top twelve funny comments we dug up.
