Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Although I understand that I'm pretty much pro Democrats and not so much that for the Repubs, but Boehner gained my respect right here. The fact that he called out a member of his own party for using a word like "wetback" shows at least SOME morality for the Religious Right. Kidding. But it is nice to see some respect being shown for all people.

Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Although Twitter is a huge fad and will continue growing for many years to come, it seems as if it makes world leaders crumble and make them seem foolish about themselves. Jon Stewart is a political comedian. Comedian. As in the things he says are jokes. He has the right to say what he wants to whoever will listen on this show.

The Colbert Report: 4/2/13 in :60 Seconds

North Korea uses high technology, and Jim McGreevey examines the gay rights movement.
Andrew Lawrence's insight:

Seems that this 60 seconds sums it up nicely. The little bit where he speaks with Jim about the gay rights movement and the topic of the Supreme Court describes the entire situation perfectly.

Former Romney Strategist 'Obsessive' About Twitter, But Warns Technology Is Not The GOP's Panacea

Former Romney Strategist 'Obsessive' About Twitter, But Warns Technology Is Not The GOP's Panacea | Gov & Law Campaigns | Scoop.it
ABC News’ Michael Falcone reports: It’s not over yet. The 2012 presidential campaign, that is.  At least not if you ask Mitt Romney’s former top strategist, Stuart Stevens, who has been writing and talking a lot about blame lately.

Andrew Lawrence's insight:

It's interesting to see how even something like a Twitter account can swing votes from one side to the other. While Obama did win the election, it would have been interesting to have seen how the election went had Romney and the Republican party been more savvy with their technology and the upcoming generation.
