The Way It Is, Like It Or Not...
"But when Romney eventually made his donation, he did so quietly, and through an unusual channel. Records filed by Romney’s Free and Strong America PAC with the Federal Election Commission did not include details of that $10,000 donation. Nor did NOM’s public 990 form. In fact, record of the payment was only uncovered Friday when the pro-gay rights Human Rights Campaign was sent a private IRS filing from NOM via a whistleblower. The Human Rights Campaign shared the filing with The Huffington Post."
"The bottom line is this: A party that talks a good game, and rhetorically touts laudable principles, isn’t worth a damn if it doesn’t put those principles to work to truly improve the state of the nation. I think the bare majority that re-elected Obama last night put little stock in Republican talk because they cannot recall meaningful Republican action to solve the nation’s problems. That’s surely unfair to Romney and Ryan, who aren’t responsible for the GOP’s failings of the past, but that’s how it is."
Even David Letterman has had enough of the lies over the “Let them go bankrupt” thing that Romney never actually said.
The headline was written by the New York Times, not Mitt Romney.
The article itself talks about a legal structured bankruptcy as a way for the companies involved (Chrysler and GM) to come back from the dead as opposed to giving them taxpayer checks, buying up weak stocks, and screwing over investors (like Chrysler did).
That structured bankruptcy, however, is not what the Obama administration is referring to. They’re clearly implying that Romney said “Let Detroit Rot,” which he clearly did not, he just had a different (and in my opinion better) way of handling GM and Chrysler sinking in quicksand.
The room set aside for reporters to watch Tuesday night’s debate erupted into applause after President Obama ridiculed the size of Mitt Romney’s personal wealth.
Mr. Romney was trying to make the point that both his and Mr. Obama’s investment funds probably include investments in China — something the president has attacked Mr. Romney for.
“Mr. President, have you looked at your pension?” Mr. Romney said.
“You know, I don’t look at my pension. It’s not as big as yours, so it — it doesn’t take as long,” Mr. Obama retorted. His reply prompted laughter in the debate hall where the two men were squaring off — but across the way in the separate room where the press was stationed, a brief round of applause broke out."
"Romney may have been off base in suggesting PBS funding has much to do with the deficit, but that’s no excuse for the Obama campaign to declare that means the demise of a popular children’s character. According to the financials of Sesame Workshop, Big Bird should do just fine, with or without public funding."
