Ann Romney fired back at Bill Clinton on Friday for claiming that Mitt Romney’s father would be “rolling over in his grave” at his son’s position on the auto bailouts. “Mitt’s father would be cheering and would be with Mitt 100 percent,” Ann Romney said on Fox News. "Because, you know, what Mitt suggested was finally what happened, is that they went through a structured bankruptcy — it's exactly what ended up happening. Mitt just said to do that before they already spent $17 billion.
“And unlike the president, I have a plan to create 12 million new jobs.” — Mitt Romney This sounds like a pretty bold statement, especially considering that only two presidents—Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton—created more than 12 million jobs. Romney, in fact, says he can reach this same goal, in just four years, though the policy paper issued by his campaign contains few details.
If you want a near perfect encapsulation of how the Obama campaign is leaning on incompetent partisans masquerading as "independent" media fact checking organizations to do their dirty work, I strongly encourage you to read today's article in the New York Times, " Obama Team Sharpens Attacks on Rivals’ Character. " While the article is a far too credulous regarding the fact checker response to Paul Ryan's speech , it does contain this gem: Mr. Obama this week, for the first time, entered the fray. Campaigning on Tuesday on college campuses in Iowa and Colorado, he told thousands of supporters not to believe the opposition’s attacks because, “how do I put this nicely?
Posted by William A. Jacobson Thursday, July 19, 2012 at 1:52pm Obama has stepped in it big time, and we have Elizabeth Warren to thank. Obama gave voice to his political creed in the form of parroting Warren’s famous rant about factory owners: Here’s Obama’s rendition (and a Romney response):
The Obama propaganda team has stooped to a new level … and that’s saying something. The issue is over Obama’s comments about building a business. You’ve heard me railing for the entire week now about his comments last Friday in Roanoke, "If you’ve got a business -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen." That’s not my paraphrasing, those words are straight from the SCOAMF’s mouth. So in a speech following Obummer’s asinine comment, Mitt Romney gets up to the podium, quotes Obama directly, and then begins his own retort (which was not nearly as brilliant as mine, by the way).
On Thursday’s edition of MSNBC’s The Cycle the group discussed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney ‘s assertion that President Obama should “take [his] campaign of division and anger and hate back to Chicago.” Co-host Touré saw what he believes to be explicit racial connotations beneath what Romney was saying, calling it the “niggerization” of the campaign. “That really bothered me,” he said. “You notice he said anger twice. He’s really trying to use racial coding and access some really deep stereotypes about the angry black man.
President Obama has no intention of getting rid of Vice President Biden as his running mate, the White House said Thursday. Republicans are being “ridiculous” and are trying to “distract attention” with their focus on Vice President Biden and his controversial comments earlier this week, White House press secretary Jay Carney said. “They know that what they're saying about this is ridiculous," Carney said at a briefing with reporters, adding that it's an “obvious” attempt to take attention away from policy issues.
Text smaller Text bigger In a radio interview today, comic legend Jackie Mason slammed President Obama for his campaign’s recent announcement of a potential second term to visit Israel, asking “Did he just buy a map a week ago?” Mason, who bills himself as “The Ultimate Jew,” took issue with Obama failing to visit Israel during his first term despite overwhelming Jewish support for his 2008 presidential election. Mason was speaking today on “Aaron Klein Investigative Radio” on New York’s WABC Radio. Stated Mason: “What I would like to know is this: Why does it take five years to find out that Israel is there?

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued an apology to casino mogul and prominent Republican donor Sheldon Adelson on Thursday, after the billionaire threatened to sue the organization over comments insinuating he profited from prostitution at his Chinese resorts. "In press statements issued on June 29 and July 2, 2012, the DCCC made unsubstantiated allegations that attacked Sheldon Adelson, a supporter of the opposing party," the DCCC said in an e-mail released Thursday. "This was wrong. The statements were untrue and unfair and we retract them. The DCCC extends its sincere apology to Mr. Adelson and his family for any injury we have caused."
Mitt Romney on Thursday said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) needs to “put up or shut up” when it comes to charges the presumptive GOP nominee did not pay his taxes. Romney also accused the White House of being behind the allegation. “It’s time for Harry to put up or shut up,” Romney said on Sean Hannity’s radio show. “Harry’s going to have to describe who it is he spoke with because that’s totally and completely wrong. It’s untrue, dishonest and inaccurate.
On June 29 and July 2, 2012, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee issued statements suggesting that billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson donated to Republican causes using money earned from involvement in a Chinese prostitution ring. A lawyer acting on Adelson’s behalf wrote to the DCCC press secretary on July 17, threatening a lawsuit if the DCCC did not issue a retraction. You can read the letter in its entirety here . Today, the DCCC officially retracted its earlier statements:
Jul 10, 2012 12:01am Spencer Platt/Getty Images; SAUL LOEB/AFP/GettyImages Economic discontent and substantial dissatisfaction with Barack Obama’s performance in office are keeping Mitt Romney competitive in the presidential race – but not by enough of a margin to overcome Obama’s stronger personal profile. The result: A dead heat in voter preferences at the midsummer stage, with the prospect of an epic battle ahead. While most Americans continue to disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy, that’s not his only problem. More than half fault him on health care and immigration as well.
