Obama campaign continues to hammer Romney on Bain Capital, Bill Clinton weighs in – VIDEOS

This won’t go away soon…

The Obama campaign is continuing to hammer away at Mitt Romney’s apparent lies about his tenure at Bain Capital. To recap, the crux of their argument is that he either lied on his SEC filings or he’s lying to the American voters now.

They released two new ads today which will be rolling out soon.

Those videos and interviews with President Obama and Clinton after the jump.

Romney campaign tries to bully the Boston Globe, Globe tells them to pound sand

Well, that didn’t go as planned…

The Romney campaign, smarting from a devastating piece by the Boston Globe this week, decided to pushback and sent them a letter demanding a retraction.

The Globe told them to stuff it.

The emails from the Romney campaign and the Globe after the jump.

Who Wants Free Stuff?

Who Wants Free Stuff?

So Bain pays you $100,000 to do nothing? Unlike Chris and many other savvy observers, I’m not convinced Mitt Romney went to the NAACP convention to be booed. The Romney campaign reportedly bused in supporters and Mitt couched his speech with a pained attempt to reach out to the audience by leaning on his father’s civil rights record and some […]

Another bad news cycle for Mitt Romney, even Republicans want him to come clean

Another bad news cycle for Mitt Romney, even Republicans want him to come clean

When was the last time a presidential candidacy imploded this early in the campaign???

If Wednesday was a bad day for Mitt Romney’s campaign (and it was), and if yesterday was an even worse day for Mitt Romney’s campaign (and it was), today isn’t going to be a whole hell of a lot better.

Much more after the jump.

The web of Romney lies continues to unravel – he was at Bain Capital long after he said he left

The web of Romney lies continues to unravel – he was at Bain Capital long after he said he left

Did you think we wouldn’t find out or what, Mitt???

There is more evidence out today showing that Mitt Romney has been lying for years about his position at Bain Capital. As I wrote about earlier this week (“Mitt Romney is lying repeatedly to hide his past as a job-killing tax cheat”), Romney’s claims that he left Bain Capital in 1999, before much of the outsourcing and company bankrupting took place, have proven to be false.

Today, the Boston Globe has a devastating new piece out titled “Mitt Romney stayed at Bain 3 years longer than he stated”. In it, they reveal an additional NINE SEC filings

The hypocrisy of Mackinac Center co-founder Richard McLellan on “corporate speech” and “buying elections”

The hypocrisy of Mackinac Center co-founder Richard McLellan on “corporate speech” and “buying elections”

Money is not speech & corporations are not people if they disagree with me… Earlier this year, Governor Rick Snyder did an endrun around the state legislature by entering into an “interlocal agreement” with Canada to build a new bridge in Michigan between our two countries. The owner of one of the current bridges, Matty Moroun, has spent enormous sums […]

Romney characterizes supporters of the Affordable Care Act as just “wanting more free stuff” from the government (UPDATED)

Romney characterizes supporters of the Affordable Care Act as just “wanting more free stuff” from the government (UPDATED)

Seriously, Mitt, can’t you go just a couple hours without being a total dick?

After writing not one but TWO pieces about the utter dickishness of Mitt Romney toward African Americans yesterday, I took a few hours off to go to a summer birthday party [Happy 30th, Jesse! Nice party, Jaimie!] “It’s not like he’s going to be more of a dick today after all of that, right?” I thought to myself.

I could not have been more wrong.

Last night, a pool report came out quoting Mitt Romney talking about being booed by the NAACP crowd in Houston and describing supporters of the Affordable Care Act as just “wanting more free stuff” from the government.

Mitt Romney: plumbing new depths in cynical pandering

Earlier today, I wrote about Mitt Romney getting booed during his appearance at the NAACP annual meeting in Houston. In a update, I referenced Steve Benen’s suggestion that he was intentionally provocative.

As it turns out, Benen was right. Proof after the jump.

Even the Russians are talking about the US presidential election

Сумасшедший американцы* I was contacted yesterday by a writer for Voice of Russia, the Russian government’s official international radio broadcasting service, formerly known as Radio Moscow. I was asked about the ongoing debate regarding extending the Bush tax cuts and Mitt Romney stashing some of his income in offshore tax havens. You can read the piece titled “Obama pulling Romney […]

Romney talks down to African Americans in address to NAACP, gets booed (UPDATED)

Dude, what the HELL were you thinking???

Mitt Romney stepped into the lion’s den today to address the annual NAACP conference in Houston, Texas this morning. Not surprisingly, he talked down to them, basically telling them they don’t understand him.

He then went on to talk about repealing the Affordable Care Act and got himself loudly booed.

Video of the booing and much more after the jump.
