It's amazing to hear all the things President Obama supposedly doesn't know. For example, Mr. Obama said he was not aware that his federal government was smuggling assault weapons to Mexico. He denied that he came up with a "red line" on Syria, no matter what the video clips show. Mr. Obama claimed he didn't know the story of Joe Soptic, the man who, in an Obama presidential-campaign ad, blamed Mitt Romney for his wife's death.
Alarmed at the very real prospect of Mitt Romney becoming the 45th president of the United States, radical philanthropist George Soros has forsaken his oft-repeated vow to quit electoral politics.
Aweek passes, and thus far Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has yet to tell us whether he is or is not having sexual relations with a cow. As was reported in this column last week, based on sources in the field, Mr. Reid has been involved with the cow for at least three months, possibly more.
Panic is never pretty, and it leads men to say foolish things — even presidents and their friends and flunkies. The wicked flee when none pursue, but sometimes they flee when facts are gaining on them.
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.
Supporters of President Obama refused Thursday to pull a TV ad suggesting that Republican Mitt Romney caused a woman to die from cancer, a commercial that is raising questions about suspected coordination between the Obama campaign and an advocacy group founded by a former White House staffer.
President Obama's campaign is casting Mitt Romney as a greedy, job-killing corporate titan with little concern for the working class in a new, multipronged effort that seeks to undermine the central rationale for his Republican rival's candidacy: his business credentials.

Mr. Soptic told CNN she worked until 2002 or 2003 when she quit because of an injury.
Those prevarications unraveled when it turned out that Mr. Soptic had told the story during an Obama campaign conference call led by deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter in May and even had starred in an Obama campaign ad, also in May.
