Mitt Romney debuted a weekly podcast on Saturday, adding to the range of  technology used by his campaign.

In rolling out the new weekly address, the Republican presidential nominee immediately tackled the hot topic of Medicare, blasting President Barack Obama for raiding “$716 billion from the Medicare trust fund. And he did that to finance his takeover of the healthcare system.”

“Now if that wasn’t bad enough,” Romney continued, “his healthcare law also put in place a board of 15 unelected bureaucrats and gave them the power to make additional cuts to Medicare without even having to get approval from Congress. This means they could deny elderly Americans the care they’ve worked for their entire lives – all because President Obama trusts bureaucrats more than he trusts seniors and their doctors.”

It’s been a busy month on the technology front for the Romney campaign. Romney announced his selection of Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate via an app called “Mitt’s VP,” and the Ryan pick had an immediate impact on Twitter, USA Today reported, generating a more positive tweet stream about Romney than Obama for the first time since July, according to the Twitter Political Index.
