Why Romney and Ryan Are Going Down

Unemployment is still above 8 percent, job gains aren’t even keeping up with population growth, the economy is barely moving forward. And yet, according to most polls, the Romney-Ryan ticket is falling further and further behind. How can this be?
Because Republicans are failing the central test of electability. Instead of putting together the largest possible coalition of voters, they’re relying largely on one slice of America — middle-aged white men — and alienating just about everyone else.

Romney In Swing State Swings On Energy Issue

Mitt Romney campaigned in Pueblo, Colorado, on Monday, telling about 3,000 supporters that, as president, he’d create jobs in the state by developing U.S. energy resources.

Want to Know Why Mitt Romney Flip Flopped on Health Care?

As Eskow says, "Unnecessary surgeries at HCA? Fraudulent billing of Medicare? Expired baby formula at Duane Read? That's the real RomneyCare." And it more than explains Romney's MA health care plan, which purposely did not contain medical costs. It also explains why even that was too much to countenance now. His new-found opposition as Obamacare is most likely attributable to the fact that it reins in the excess costs and abuse he has profited from. He may not be running Bain any more, but he still profits from a dysfunctional, fraudulent, and gouging health care system. Mitt Romney IS the problem.

Romney Accuses Obama Of Supporting Rioters Who Killed American Overseas On September 11th

Egyptian rioters massed to protest an anti-Muslim movie by a Florida jackass who claims to be a pastor, and the U.S. Embassy put out a statement condemning the movie. This did not pacify the rioters, who stormed the U.S. Embassy and killed a staffer.

Just what does the platform say about workers’ rights, unions, job safety, wages and more?
