I notice the latest CBS/NYT poll has Romney leading Obama 47% to 46% with 4% undecided and 1% won't vote. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162- ... ontentBody

I knew Romney had been gaining in most of the polls. I thought Obama seemed desperate recently. This explains it.

Bain got federal subsidies.

How does Romney explain away those facts?

Looks like Team Romney is heading towards a meltdown.

Before his speech, the candidate laid a wreath at Poland's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and stopped to look at a new memorial to Pope John Paul II.

One of Romney's aides, Rick Gorka, had an exchange with reporters who tried to ask the likely GOP nominee questions about missteps during the trip. Gorka told reporters to "show some respect" at the Polish holy site, and also said "kiss my ass" and "shove it."

WARSAW, POLAND—World leader and president of Poland Bronisław Komorowski was reportedly puzzled Tuesday as to why he had just met with a man who was apparently the governor of Massachusetts six years ago.


Ha, it's just funny.

Might this be the reason why Romney hasn't released more years of his federal tax returns?

Mitt Romney Better Move to Right, Says Emboldened Tea Party

So what will Romney do? Will he shift to the center to attract the independent vote or move farther to the right so as not to alienate the Tea Partiers? Will TP backers stay home (or write in someone like Ron Paul) if Mitt doesn't appease them?

Requests for comment from the Romney campaign were not returned.

Henry, you're not even preaching to the choir anymore. 7 out of the last 8 posts is just talking to yourself. Maybe you should just go hang on State Street where you might be appreciated.

So is Mitt your man? Should he got after the Tea Party vote or more moderate independent voters? Can you actually address a topic on this forum?

I'd avoid this line of argument like the plague until you get some better information. It sounds to me like Karl Rovian tactics are sucking Harry Reid into a "Rather-gate." Ok, so some anonymous tipster claims that Romney went ten years without paying taxes, giving Romney the opportunity to release one more year of tax information to prove Harry Reid wrong. Suddenly the topic changes from whether Romney pays his fair share of taxes to whether Harry Reid is a liar.

Take a tip from Dan Rather... don't take the bait.

The Koch brothers are spending millions (more) for a pro-Romney, anti-Obama TV ad campaign.

Better tell that to Harry Reid, as he isn't backing down.

What will Romney do? For him it is axiomatic that God's blessings are manifest in the world through wealth distribution, and had God not favored the U.S., he never would had allowed us to prosper unless we were righteous. So I expect the Mormon multimillionaire to soon woo the religiofascists with some kind of divine will human destiny bullshit.
