Romney, Obama campaign staffers debate an actual issue on Twitter

As our colleagues at the Fix wrote last month, Obama campaign adviser David Axelrod and top Romney campaign adviser Eric Fehrnstrom have had some notable debates in 140-character bursts.

The two senior aides publicly sparred over such high-level topics as what Mitt Romney has in common with a TV show and a child’s toy and whether President Obama would eat his pet.

Two other top aides traded Twitter barbs Wednesday. Romney press secretary Andrea Saul and Obama rapid response director Lis Smith argued over — of all things — jobs and the economy.

See the exchange after the jump.

This isn’t the first time the two women exchanged words on Twitter. National Journal reported that Smith and Saul had another substantive spat in April, this one over stats on women’s job losses.

Which staffer made the better case for her boss? Weigh in in the comments section or tweet us (@PostPolitics) with your pick.
