SAN ANTONIO -

Within one week, Americans heard from the Republican and Democratic nominees for president. 

Using the website Wordle, we entered the entire text of the speeches given by Republican Mitt Romney and Democrat Barack Obama. 

Here are the speeches in a cloud:

Using some kind of magical formula, the site finds the words most often used and makes a word cloud of of them. Those words are the largest in the pictures. 

Romney made his speech Aug. 30 in Tampa, Florida. You can read a transcript of his speech here.

Obama made his speech Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina. You can read a transcript of his speech here.

If you're curious, we also entered San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro's DNC speech into the word cloud maker. You can read a transcript of his speech here.
