The RNC purchased another trending topic on Twitter tonight. You'd think they'd have learned last week that you can't control what people do with the #hashtag you promote.
This is literally the most recent page of responses on my Twitter when I choose "All." I have not removed any "No" responses:
If Bush left us with such great gas prices, WHY WASN'T HE AT THE #RNC??? #AreYouBetterOff
Jimmy Carter's DNC video > #areyoubetteroff Yes we are! Letssss goooo!
#AreYouBetterOff Of course! The economy is not collapsing (how soon the @GOP forget!) and the stock market is up 100%! @GM workers agree!
#maddow - #areyoubetteroff NO
#AreYouBetterOff - YES!! Iraq War -Over, Wall Street Collapse-Improving, Mortgage Crisis-Better, Jobs-Better, Health Care- Better
#AreYouBetterOff No one has lied to get us into a costly(human & monetary) war.

What a motivating speech by Jimmy Carter.. #MalaiseSquared #AreYouBetterOff #ObamaIsntWorking
#AreYouBetterOff yes I am!!!
it's not what happened, it's about #areyoubetteroff
Next I checked "Top Tweets" (my personal favorite is "#AreYouBetterOff No. Signed, Osama Bin Laden.") Notice how many of them are @GOP trying desperately to get people to play with their ball the right way:
Instead of asking #AreYouBetterOff?, voters should be asking: "What have #Republicans done in the last 4yrs to deserve the White House?"
Ha: GOP launches #AreYouBetterOff hashtag, gets flooded with "Yes" responses. See some: http://bit.ly/...
WOW. #DNC2012 opens with- "Government is the only thing that we all belong to”. #AreYouBetterOff
Taxes are the lowest in 60 years and spending is down .9% of GDP under Obama. Republicans hate these facts. Remind them. #AreYouBetterOff
4 yrs ago we were losing 800k jobs a month, spent billions invading afg & iraq, for a guy living in pakistan #AreYouBetterOff Not a debate!
Guy that looks like a Ken doll worth $500 million running for President & Clint Eastwood is talking to an invisible chair #AreYouBetterOff

#AreYouBetterOff not knowing if the GOP's nominee for president actually pays his taxes?
#AreYouBetterOff than you were four years ago? If not, then we should try taking rights away from women and gays and see if that helps.
Four years ago, young people weren't allow to remain on their parents health insurance after college. #AreYouBetterOff? Yes. Unequivocally.
When Republicans ask #AreYouBetterOff they aren't COMPARING to when Obama took office. Funny. http://pic.twitter.com/...
#AreYouBetterOff than you were four years ago? It's hard to see how you could be with the stock market only up 5000 points.
#AreYouBetterOff now than you were four Paul Ryan lies ago?
#AreYouBetterOff being Italian? YES!
#AreYouBetterOff If your child is one of 17 million w/a pre-existing condition that could have bankrupted you, YES! http://blogs.suntimes.com/...
#AreYouBetterOff now that the GOP wasted money on a hashtag we can easily use to make the case for the President? http://www.nationalmemo.com/...
#AreYouBetterOff now that bin Laden is dead and GM isn't? #pureBiden
.@RyanGOP, doubt '08 Obama voters thought voting "hope & change" was actually a vote for "incomplete" #AreYouBetterOff
It's cute that Obama gave himself an #Incomplete grade, but we the American people give him a big fat 'F' for failure. #AreYouBetterOff?
We all #AreYouBetterOff with Obama in the White House. #Obama2012
“More jobs were created in the private sector last year than all 8 years of George W. Bush” http://www.classwarfareexists.com/... #AreYouBetterOff Hell Yes!
CBS: "Ryan attacks Obama over 'incomplete' grade on economy" http://cbsn.ws/... #AreYouBetterOff #tcot

#AreYouBetterOff Yes. It's like republicans have amnesia of how we got into this mess in the first place.

I don't understand how removing human rights from women and those below the poverty line will make us better off in 4 #AreYouBetterOff
Funny to read through the #AreYouBetterOff tweets. RNC promoted it, but it looks like democrats are the ones responding (with a #yes)
On inauguration day, 2009, the av. gallon of gasoline was $1.84. #AreYouBetterOff
Daily reminder that unemployment has been above 8% for a record 42 straight months. #AreYouBetterOff #ObamaIsntWorking
#AreYouBetterOff No. Signed, Osama Bin Laden.
#AreYouBetterOff going back to the policies that caused the recession? No. What would Mitt Romney do differently than George Bush? Nothing.
The @GOP is going full out in pretending to "forget" they caused a recession. America Remembers How We Got Here. #AreYouBetterOff
Since Obama Took Office, The Number Of Americans Receiving Food Stamps Has Increased From 31.9M To 46.5M – A 45% increase. #AreYouBetterOff
