The Romney and Obama campaigns — both convinced that their man is more trustworthy with the future of Medicare — ramped up the debate this weekend, with operatives trading prickly barbs, the president dismissing Republican plans as "snake oil" and Paul Ryan bringing his 78-year-old mother into the fracas.
Democrats said Sunday that Mitt Romney, by picking Rep. Paul Ryan to fill out his presidential ticket, has set up this year's election as a referendum on the deep cuts to the social safety net that the GOP's top budget man says are needed to fix federal finances.
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney could name his running mate by the end of the week, a top adviser said Monday.
Undercutting what his top adviser said two days ago, Mitt Romney on Wednesday flatly stated that President Obama's individual mandate, which the Supreme Court upheld last week, is indeed "a tax."
In the wake of the Supreme Court's ruling last week, Republicans on Capitol Hill spent four days laying out an attack on President Obama's health care law as a massive tax increase.
While congressional Republicans have seized on the Supreme Court's ruling that President Obama's health care overhaul is constitutional as a tax, presumptive GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney's top campaign strategist undercut that line of argument Monday, saying that the governor agrees with Mr. Obama that the law is not a tax.
A former Obama administration official admitted Sunday the president is creating jobs at an "unacceptably low rate."
It's not the wasps, bees and mosquitos, though stingers all, that bedevil presidential candidates. It's the fruit flies. Insignificant in their own right, they nevertheless have the ability to damage and even sink a campaign. That's the lesson for Mitt Romney, as taught by Eric Fehrnstrom, his once-anonymous "top aide," who confided to a CNN interviewer that Mr. Romney is not really a born-again conservative, that he's only pandering to the unwashed crazies on the right.
Fehrnstrom says the passenger then became enraged and took a swing at Romney.
Spokesman Eric Fehrnstrom says Romney and his wife were on an Air Canada flight to Los Angeles on Monday when Romney asked the passenger sitting in front of his wife, Ann, to raise his seat back before takeoff.
