Romney Hashtag Hailstorm

ABC News Anchor Diane Sawyer has apparently set up an interview with Mitt and Ann Romney for Monday, April 16.  In an attempt to keep Sawyer, ABC, and the Romneys up-to-date with the whole social media thing, Sawyer used her twitter feed this afternoon (April 12)  to solicit questions for the presumptive GOP Presidential nominee and his wife.

Below, with very minimal editing, I offer the first 100 or so tweeted "questions" to arrive at #AskRomney.  Some I edited for being nonsensical (at least to me), another was over the line (at least to me).  As far as I could see, out of the first 300 tweets or so, only two qualified as "legitimate" questions that an ABC reporter might actually ask a Presidential candidate (one concerned sending U.S. troops to battle the Mexican drug cartels, the other was more an impassioned plea to defeat Obama). The rest?  Well, take a look for yourself.  If the twitterverse is a barometer of anything, Romney has an uphill climb ahead of him.
