useless factoids: speech word clouds





"We used a transcript of Romney’s remarks and the text of Obama’s speech as prepared for delivery. Remember, the size of the word in the cloud is proportional to the number of times it appeared in the text. Here’s what the speeches look like"

So which is which

Top is Romney because he says he wants to be your 'President', and would be countering work of 'Obama'. Bottom would be Obama as he doesn't have to say he is president and doesn't have to say his name.

Right?

You got it, I don't think Obama is in the habit of talking about himself in the third person last names only basis

What sticks out for me in Romney's cloud: apart from America/ns and President and Obama and world, there's Mom and Dad.
Obama of course has NEW Jobs America Hope Believe Future

And amusingly, we can get some poetry, e.g. the left side of each cloud:
America days know job dad way better see small thought help
One right election path want government must time vote (cost without family health alone companies think)

Seems to me like the bottom one is more complex, talking about many different issues, whereas the top one is just very "American Americans in America!"
So.. exactly like the respective parties
