"Mitt Romney and Spain"

Brad Klapper:

"I don't want to go down the path of Spain," Romney said Wednesday night during the first presidential debate. He argued that government spending under Obama has reached 42 percent of the U.S. economy, a figure comparable with America's NATO ally. "I want to go ...

"A '47%' Grip on Reality"

I still hold that Romney's "gaffe" was no more than a simple appeasement to rich Republican donors. I highly doubt that he intended to offend anyone.

But he made a mistake: he got caught on camera. And now real people are really hurt.

"Ann Defending Mitt"

Romney's repetitious campaign fumbles have been the source of amusement for Democrats and frustration for Republicans. As members of his own party have been distancing themselves, Mrs. Romney jumps to his defense:

Russia "is without question our number one geopolitical foe,"

As I'm sure anyone can imagine, the Russians just loved hearing that.

Medvedev:

"My first advice ...

"Rich Romney"

From CBS News:

Asked by the AP reporter if he follows NASCAR, Romney responded, "Not as closely as some of the most ardent fans. But I have some great friends who are NASCAR team owners."

"You Can Keep Your American Rights If..."

I want to react to Mitt Romney's statement regarding the newly signed bill that in part allows the military to detain indefinitely_any _American_they feel is afilliated with terrorism _without a trial:

"People who side with al Qaeda do not deserve the same rights as other people."
