Has Sandy Changed Christie's Future?

Based on the initial post-Sandy reaction to the Christie-Obama bromance imagery, I do not see how Chris Christie has a chance to win the Republican Presidential nomination in 2016 (assuming that President Obama wins tomorrow - otherwise, this whole topic becomes moot).  His nonpartisan approach to governance during this crisis will be an even bigger albatross around his neck than Romneycare was for Romney and Christie will not have the luxury of taking on several sgtbatguanocrazy teabagging wingnut opponents, dividing what represented between 60-70% of the Republican primary election vote...

Mitt Romney: Angry Under Pressure

He’s not known for personality. But when challenged, Mitt Romney reveals his personality disorder — a mean, sometimes visibly repressed temper. Why does he get so angry? Is it just because he’s an entitled rich kid who could use some anger management? Or is there something seriously wrong with him that should be watched with concern?...

What Romney's Tax Plan Means for VA

Today's Romney University video from former Congressman Tom Perriello is What Romney's tax plan means for Virginia. It is based our joint report with the Center for American Progress Action Fund.
Though Gov. Romney and Rep. Ryan repeatedly refuse to say which specific tax breaks they would eliminate or reduce, the Tax Policy Center calculates that these major tax benefits for middle-class families would have to be reduced by 58 percent to pay for his tax cut for the rich.

New Support for Todd Akin

According to Talking Points Memo, Todd Akin's got a super PAC - a real one - behind him and they're ponying up $800,000 to place ads asking folks to vote for Akin because he'll help tip Senate support to a potential Romney administration. Guess they haven't seen the latest polls or else they wouldn't be counting their chickens before they're hatched. It doesn't necessarily  look like there's going to be a President Romney....

Obama Ad: Don’t be Fooled by the 'New' Mitt Romney

In this ad for President Obama, people were asked to read allowed Mitt Romney's quotes on such hot button issues as women's rights, tax cuts, and health insurance from various points in the election and in one case over the course of a single day.  The people also speculated on which position may actually be his "real" position and what would cause a candidate to vary his positions so widely.

Businessman Schtick, Governor Romney and Mr. Spence

Kevin Horrigan in his Sunday column in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch brought up a study (pdf) by a couple of academics that question the practice of "peer benchmarking" CEO salaries in order to keep them from moving on to more lucrative jobs. The idea is that companies have to pay more in order to keep talented CEOs in place. The two researchers, Ch...

Romney Also Doing Damage Cleanup After Threats to Downsize FEMA

Here's a stormy, relevant and current reason to not vote for Mitt Romney. He wants to decentralize America's disaster management and throw senior responsibilities to the states.
Essentially, he wants to gut FEMA-which of course worked so well for President Bush.
Bush neglected FEMA, put a horse-guy in charge and then Hurricane Katrina happened. In the words of another Republican from Texas-oops.
So now we have Mitt Romney attempting to backpedal from comments he made during one of those numerous Republican primary debates this year.

The 'Apology Tour' Lie Reexamined... Again

Tonight we watched a Republican candidate get schooled in a debate by an incumbent President. So badly in fact, that he started just mostly agreeing with that President to run the clock out and "pass the commander-in-chief composure test" as the GOP talking point seems to be. However, when Mitt Romney wasn't learning about nuclear submarines and that the Army does not have a Calvary anymore he tried to resort to what he has used this whole campaign. Lies.
