Bipartisan choice for first Twitter Town Hall question: Whare are the jobs?

It’s not every day the Republican National Committee and AFL-CIO agree on something. But both organization’s tweeted out the same question they would like to see President Obama address at his Twitter Town Hall today.

From @RNCResearch: Where Are The Jobs? #AskObama

From @AFLCIO: Where are the jobs? #AskObama

We should know whether or not this question, or one like it, will be asked pretty quickly. CBS News’ Mark Knoller predicts: “You’ll see pretty fast whether the Twitter questions put to Pres Obama are meant to challenge his policies or promote them.”
