The House Democratic Caucus Fails On Twitter

About two hours ago, the Twitter certified official account of the House Democratic Caucus (@HouseDemocrats)started a new hashtag on Twitter, a shortcut search term used on the popular social networking site that allows a quick search of hot, trending topics of the day.

Democrats were attempting to manufacture myriad comments slamming Republicans.

The first post:

@HouseDemocrats: Scary exercise: What Would Republicans Do (#WWRD) w/a majority in Congress? Shed light on R policies: suggest your own!

Since that post they have been overrun with Tweets and GOP members of Congress answering the call (cut and post sampling of responses — you can follow the battle yourself HERE.), but not like they’d wished fail:

@alexashrugged Repeal and replace hugely unpopular health care #hcr #WWRD

@RepMikeCoffman #WWRD? Does your family make a budget every year? @HouseDemocrats just decided it was too hard to make one for USA in 2010.

@StephanieKlick #WWRD? Give DC’s neediest kids a better life through same type of educational opportunityObama had: http://j.mp/d5Ig0G (via @DarrellIssa)

@alexashrugged Let’s take over House Dems hash tag #WWRD!!! (What would Republicans do?)

@techRepublican @HouseDemocrats ask, #WWRD = What Would Republicans Do (with a Majority). | Go.
