Monday night's third and final presidential debate will be the latest opportunity for Mitt Romney to again use the Etch A Sketch that his campaign hinted at months ago.
Mitt Romney's top strategist ignited a firestorm in March when he suggested that the candidate could "Etch A Sketch" away his campaign from the primaries — but Mr. Romney has yet to do a general-election wipe-down.
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.
President Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney spent a quiet Sunday attending church with their families as the two politicians rested up for the campaign's final 11 weeks and the approaching party nominating conventions.
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.
Mitt Romney on Thursday directly addressed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid's insinuation that the former Massachusetts governor didn't pay any taxes for 10 years, telling the Nevada Democrat to put his money where his mouth is.
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."
At least in politics, "tax" is a four-letter word.
A semantic dispute over what defines "a tax" or "a penalty" has pushed Mitt Romney's presidential campaign deeply off message as he struggles for the right response to last week's Supreme Court ruling upholding the health care law.
It looks like a tax, smells like a tax, and the Supreme Court says it must be a tax. But politicians in both parties are squirming over how to define the Thing in President Barack Obama's health care law that requires people to pay up if they don't get health insurance.
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.
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.
Could President Obama's re-election campaign be overmarketed and overpackaged in the trite era of political "likability"?
A former Obama administration official admitted Sunday the president is creating jobs at an "unacceptably low rate."
Asked about the potential Reid-Romney showdown, top Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom said he did not "want to discuss specific personalities" before turning back to a familiar talking point that Mr. Romney proved in Massachusetts, where the legislature was 85 percent Democrat, that he can work across party lines.
"To the extent that he got anything done, it was done in cooperation with Democrats that controlled the legislature," Mr. Fehrnstrom said.
