    Despite Team Obama's continued attacks on Mitt Romney's past associations with Bain Capital, they aren't willing to give back $7500 in campaign donations from....Bain Capital executives. In fact, Team Obama has received more money from Bain executives than Mitt Romney so far this campaign cycle.

    “No one aside from Mitt Romney is running for President highlighting their tenure as a corporate buyout specialist as one of job creation, when in fact, his goal was profit maximization,” said Mr. LaBolt. ”The President has support from business leaders across industries who have seen him pull the economy back from the brink of another depression, manufacturing and the auto industry revived, and support his agenda to build an economy that lasts where America outinnovates and outeducates the rest of the world and economic security for the middle class is restored.”

    The Obama campaign has made it clear they will run as far away from Barack Obama's record in the White House and hold onto attacking Bain as long as possible. Afterall, it was President Obama who said Monday, "So to repeat, this [Bain] is not a distraction. This is what this campaign is going to be about.”" The good news? As Guy wrote about earlier this week, the Romney campaign plans to remain focused on jobs and the economy.
    Hypocrisy at it's finest. Obama is really good at it.

    I hope the hapless GOP will use these jewels in ads against the Fool in the WH.

    A couple of weeks ago, Romney seemed to have obama on defense. I thought they were doing fine. Now, suddenly, it's all turned around and the Romney campaign is swinging at air, when they're swinging at all.

    He's falling further behind in Pennsylvania and, last I read, has absolutely no ads on the air in that state, either the campaign or the PACs.

    It's reminding me of his run for the Massachusetts senate. He was doing okay until Kennedy brought up Bain. Romney seemed incapable of responding.

    Things could change after the election, but I'd rather see him close than far behind. Romney doesn't impress me as a fighter or somebody accustomed to getting down and dirty. He's got to learn how, and quickly.

    I cringed when I heard he had McCain people on his campaign. It's starting to look like a McCain campaign. And, it isn't that early in the game anymore.

    Romney either grows a pair between now and November or this country is doomed. It's not just the unrestrained Marxism we'll get forced by EO on us, it is the unelected fools and bureaucRATS that this Idiot In Chief has surrounding him making policy and selectively enforcing laws.

    I guess I heard wrong about him having a lot of mccain people aboard.

    Here's his team as of April.

    http://www.p2012.org/candidates/romneyorg

    He's got some good names there. He's got to start fighting. Three months and a couple of weeks left. Time is winding down and, from all appearances he seems to be too.

    A couple of weeks ago, I said he was doing it right. Now, he seems not to be doing period.

    Your wish is being granted:



    In speeches from Des Moines to Dallas, Romney has always been careful to hedge his tough digs at Obama with a civil nod toward the president’s moral character: “He’s a nice guy,” the Republican has often said. “He just has no idea how the private economy works.” But Tuesday’s speech included no such hedge — and one campaign adviser said there’s a reason for that.

    “[Romney] has said Obama’s a nice fellow, he’s just in over his head,” the adviser said. “But I think the governor himself believes this latest round of attacks that have impugned his integrity and accused him of being a felon go so far beyond that pale that he’s really disappointed. He believes it’s time to vet the president. He really hasn’t been vetted; McCain didn’t do it.”

    Indeed, facing what the candidate and his aides believe to be a series of surprisingly ruthless, unfounded, and unfair attacks from the Obama campaign on Romney’s finances and business record, the Republican’s campaign is now prepared to go eye for an eye in an intense, no-holds-barred act of political reprisal, said two Romney advisers who spoke on condition of anonymity. In the next chapter of Boston’s pushback — which began last week when they began labeling Obama a “liar” — very little will be off-limits, from the president’s youthful drug habit, to his ties to disgraced Chicago politicians.

    “I mean, this is a guy who admitted to cocaine use, had a sweetheart deal with his house in Chicago, and was associated and worked with Rod Blagojevich to get Valerie Jarrett appointed to the Senate,” the adviser said. “The bottom line is there’ll be counterattacks.”

    Well it's about time we vetted this dope smoking, coke snorting, communist loving, Marxist racist blowhard. Maybe we can figure out how high his mystical IQ is? Perhaps we can see some of his professorial writing that proves he can formulate complex sentences instead of his non-sensible, 3rd grade, bumper sticker rants. Perhaps we can draw him out on how he can sit in a church pew of a racist bigoted "pastor" for 20 years and not have heard anything like what the entire world has heard.

    Maybe he can bridge the distance between his story of an unrepentant terrorist that just happens to be in the neighborhood and a relationship that obviously exceeds that. Perhaps we can get him to explain how his miserable failures that he keeps repeating measure up to his words that he doesn't go back to failed methods?

    There are several hundred statements that Romney can hang the Marxist on. He could start with something as easy as "Corpse-men" and 57 states" or even his relationship with Tony Rezko. Romney might want to ask why his relationship with a legitimate business such as Bain Capitol is fodder for attacks to the extent that the Marxist called him a felon yet a cozy relationship with ACORN is not only better, but isn't even investigated. This line of questioning might even grow into a discussion of the Marxists anti-business statements about how nobody built their own business, government did it.
