After all, he asked for it.
In a recent campaign appearance in Virginia, the President remarked:
Ultimately, I think, Mr. Romney is going to have to answer those questions because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is you’re ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations.
The Obama campaign has been in all out assault mode on Mitt Romney since it was discovered that Romney may not have completely severed his relationship with Bain Capital after 1999.
The Daily Caller
A new ad from President Obama’s re-election campaign calls Mitt Romney “Outsourcer-in-Chief,” accusing the former businessman and presumptive Republican presidential nominee of overseeing companies that shipped jobs to China and India while leading Bain Capital.
But while Obama tries to hit Romney on this issue, records show that Obama’s campaign is using a travel booking company this year that have operations in India and China.
Obama’s transcripts unavailable for comment.
(NYT) — Mitt Romney, who is one of the wealthiest men ever to seek the presidency, said on Wednesday that he had no intention of releasing his tax returns if he became the Republican presidential nominee, breaking with a long tradition in both parties. […]
A spokesman for President Obama‘s re-election campaign blasted Mr. Romney and questioned whether he had something to hide in his finances.
“Why does Governor Romney feel like he can play by a different set of rules?” said Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for the Obama campaign. “What is it that he doesn’t want the American people to see? Governor Romney, who has favored secrecy over openness time after time, should live up to the same standard of disclosure his father and others set.”
The Democratic National Committee took only hours on Thursday to unveil a new Web site, http://www.whatmittpays.com. The site allows visitors to select their income level and compare how much less they would have paid if they were taxed at what the group assumes would be Mr. Romney’s lower rate.

In today’s American Thinker, Gene Schwimmer’s article titled “Don’t Sweat the Presidency, Focus on Congress” alarmed me. I agree with his premise that choosing between Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich is difficult because neither of them is a true conservative and both of them have some heavy baggage. I also agree with Schwimmer’s conclusion about Congress:
Socialism is not the Answer
According to the media……………….. you’ve heard these words before, but according to the media, Mitt Romney is the guy to beat Obama. Why, because they say so? This is the same media that said we were all racist if we didn’t agree with Obama. That OWS was just like the Tea Party. That Obama was god-like and would unite this country. The same media that says Obama is a Natural Born Citizen well Obama is not a natural born citizen because his father was a Kenyan national and a British subject, as was Obama,
The same media that use the term “birthers or tea-baggers” when they refere to Patriots that respect and honor the U.S Constitution but call OWS people that walk all over the American Flag, use the F-word to describe our military, and assault people, real Americans.
Is Mitt my first choice? No. At this point in time, it’s still an open field although it is narrowing. As for the media, well everyone has an opinion and you know what they say about opinions.
