President Obama hit the links on Saturday with a lobbyist for the financial firm Bain Capital — the same firm that was at the center of the president's attack campaign against candidate Mitt Romney in 2012, Politico has reported.
Not so long ago, having offshore investments was a bad thing. Throughout the 2012 campaign, Barack Obama pummeled Mitt Romney for his successful career at Bain Capital. He was derided as an outsourcer, a shipper of jobs to Mexico and a tax dodger with tax shelters in the Cayman Islands.
To listen to the pundits, Ann Romney is little more than a "corporate wife" (Fox News commentator Juan Williams), a sexist for "putting a sorority girl grin on a description of women's lives" (Slate's Amanda Marcotte), and a woman who "has never worked a day in her life" (Democratic strategist Hilary Rosen).
As Democrats convene in Charlotte, N.C., on Monday, they likely will double down on their claim that Bain Capital is really the Bain Crime Family. They will accuse Republican nominee Mitt Romney and Bain's other "greedy" co-founders of stealing their winnings, evading taxes and lighting cigars with $100 bills on their yachts.
President Obama refused to accept responsibility Monday for the actions of campaign surrogates who suggested Republican Mitt Romney committed a felony and that he contributed to the death of a woman who succumbed to cancer.
The attacks on presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney by the Obama campaign and its supporters are disgraceful — but they seem to be working, Sen. John McCain said Sunday.
Public figures' records are fair game in political campaigns. It's not "mudslinging" unless it's untrue or employs "derogatory personal slurs," according to the Living Webster Dictionary.
Democrats are accusing Mitt Romney of being a criminal. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims the presumptive Republican presidential nominee has not paid taxes in 10 years. What is Mr. Reid's source for this explosive allegation? He states it is an "anonymous" investor in Bain Capital.
Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman slammed the Obama and Romney campaigns Tuesday for engaging in what he considers record-high negativity during this year's presidential race.
Rev. Robert A. Sirico is president of the Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty in Grand Rapids, Mich. Founded in 1990, the mission of the institute is, "to articulate a vision of society that is both free and virtuous, the end of which is human flourishing."
President Obama wants this election to be a debate about outsourcing. The president thinks he can build a case for his re-election around the fact that Bain Capital, a successful investment firm that Mitt Romney once owned and managed, held investments in companies that outsourced some of their production.
Mitt Romney is preferred over President Obama on the economy, despite attacks on his record at Bain Capital, according to a new USA Today/Gallup Poll.
President Obama is being compared to Batman. That's right. The Obama campaign believes the new blockbuster movie, "The Dark Knight Rises," set to be released this weekend, is an artistic reflection of political reality. According to many liberals, Mr. Obama is more than a leader.
Even as Mitt Romney was readying one of his strongest direct attacks yet on President Obama on Tuesday in Pennsylvania, Mr. Obama's campaign pre-empted him with its own attack ad in the state, a turn of events emblematic of the Republican challenger's struggle to impose his own narrative to drive — and win — what is now a 24-hour news cycle.
It should be clear by now that Barack Obama is running his shaky presidential campaign in 3-D: dishonesty, deception and distraction.
