Reaching to the Twitterverse in hopes of moving votes, the president's 2012 campaign is Tweeting followers and asking them to Tweet their members of Congress in favor of the president's plan for lifting the debt ceiling.
"Kentucky voters," @BarackObama tweeted. "Tweet @SenRandPaul and ask him to compromise on a balanced deficit solution."
Florida Republican Rep. Tom Rooney, who was undecided on House Speaker John Boehner's plan, but today endorsed it, tweaked Obama back in a Tweet: "@BarackObama campaign thx for all the new followers!," Rooney Tweeted. "I've shared with them your plan: rooney.house.gov/images/stories."
The link goes to a blank page -- Republicans have accused the administration of lacking a plan to tackle the deficit. The White House calls the charge a fallacy and says Obama himself last week laid out the administration's markers.
