After news broke earlier this month that CNN was looking to relaunch "Crossfire," several sources told Politico that the network was looking to tap former House Speaker Newt Gingrich and former Obama campaign manager Stephanie Cutter to fill the dueling roles.
With Barack Obama and Mitt Romney holed up in preparation for Monday night's third and final presidential debate, the two campaigns' top surrogates and advisers butted heads Sunday over Big Bird, Mr. Romney's "binders full of women" comment and a new word being used by the president on the campaign stump: "Romnesia."
With President Obama losing his advantage among female voters, his campaign aides Wednesday resurrected attacks on Mitt Romney over abortion and women's rights, claiming the Republican nominee is hiding his true positions.
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.
Guest lineups for the Sunday TV news shows:
Injecting racial politics into an election that already turned ugly, Vice President Joseph R. Biden told a largely black audience Tuesday in Virginia that Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney would put voters "back in chains" with a plan to loosen regulations on Wall Street.
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.
Blond, telegenic and tough as nails, Stephanie Cutter, President Obama's ubiquitous deputy campaign manager, isn't afraid of a little made-for-TV mudslinging.
Now that we know just what President Obama thinks of people who succeed in business, it is no wonder that the economy is so much in the crapper. To avoid any discussion of his own disastrous handling of the economy, Mr. Obama announced last week what he thinks of the struggling spark plugs of commerce: They are a bunch of felons.
An Obama campaign adviser on Sunday said she will not apologize to Republican rival Mitt Romney for suggesting he might be a felon.
While Republicans on Sunday complained that the Obama campaign's latest round of attacks on Mitt Romney are blatantly untrue, unfair and demeaning to the office of the presidency, Team Obama fired off a blunt response: Stop whining.
President Obama's campaign said Wednesday that Mitt Romney either lied to voters or to federal regulators about how long he ran his company, while the GOP candidate's team said the "felony" accusation was so over-the-top that the president should apologize for his aides' behavior; voters were left to sort it all out.
"President-elect Barack Obama called Nancy Reagan today to apologize for the careless and off-handed remark he made during today's press conference," spokeswoman Stephanie Cutter said in a statement Friday evening. "The president-elect expressed his admiration and affection for Mrs. Reagan that so many Americans share, and they had a warm conversation."
I hope liberals and conservatives will feel they're well represented, and will walk away feeling informed," she notes, adding, "There won't be that big urgency to get all the points across in five minutes."
