File this one under “Epic Fail”.
The Democrats awkwardly started a snarky trending topic today on Twitter; WWRD? (What would Republicans do?)….unintended hilarity ensued, as The Hill reported:
So, House Dems got together and said, “let’s mock Republicans on Twitter! That will make us more popular!”
LOL!: Joe Barton would “side with Big Oil” ? Who’s writing their tweets, Alvin Green? That sounds suspiciously like Green’s debut tweets, last week, (only he didn’t capitalize “Big Oil”):
Sen DeMint ok with risking disaster off of south carolina coast. I will fight for our coast, for people of sc. DeMint fights for big oil.

Nice to know they’re all using the same lame playbook.
“Republicans “want to end funding for PBS and NPR” : Is there a problem with that?
Republicans “want to repeal HCR consumer protections.” Hell yes, we want to repeal and replace ObamaCare.
Those were supposed to be criticisms?
Pwnage ensued when Republican House members started using the hashtag:
More than 11 Republican lawmakers have responded, including House Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.). Reps. Patrick McHenry (R-N.C.) and Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) turned the discussion to the budget.
Since 11 a.m., both messages have been retweeted more than 20 times by other Republican House members. So far, no Democrats have replied.
Of course not. Dems can’t handle the truth.
A couple more:
@donmanzullo (Congressman Don Manzullo represents the 16th Congressional District in Illinois):
#WWRD? Cut spending instead of raising taxes on Americans already struggling because of disastrous job-killing policies.
@repcharlesdjou (Rep Charles Djou representing Hawaii’s First Congressional District):
#WWRD Pass a budget, like it’s been done every year since modern budget rules were enacted. Not to budget but keep spending is irresponsible
I like how @HillsdaleForum thinks:
