Obama campaign continues to lie, hopes nobody notices - ABC News: "Undeterred by independent fact-checkers that have debunked the thrust of their claims, the Obama campaign is redoubling attacks on Mitt Romney as an "outsourcer" in a new TV ad airing in eight battleground states."

I'm sure the independent, objective press will raise its concerns.  Ha-ha!  Just kidding.

Vike, your enslavement to the narrative is showing, old boy.

You decry the 'independent, objective press' for its failure to raise its concerns, citing a source from ABC News, which raises concerns you say they'll never raise (?).

In any event, are we surprised that such distortions of a political opponent's past would come from a Muslim who isn't really an American citizen?

Touche, old boy.

I suppose the Wall Street Journal is correct: it's up to the Romney campaign to hit back. They're an oddly complacent bunch so far.

Outsourcing is the big issue now? Really?

So some firms Romney was associated with did what every other company in the U.S. has done? Oh no!

Obama's solution - making American workers more expensive - probably isn't going to reverse the trend.

Romney is a disciplined campaigner who does what it takes to win.

He was also a relatively moderate governor.

If he wins the election, conservatives might end up thinking of him as hardcore progressives have ended up thinking about Obama.

Be wary of projecting too many conservative ideals on him - his pledge to undo the federal version of Romneycare may end up in the campaign promise dustbin along with Bush the Younger's constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.

Poor Mitt. How dare Obama misrepresent him in a campaign ad! We know the reason why Obama lies, too! He just can't run away from his own words, "...if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose."

The dream is that, someday, maybe, Romney will be able to afford running longer ads containing Obama's entire spoken sentence: "Senator McCain's campaign actually said, and I quote, 'if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose'."

Anyhow, the point is, shame shame, a thousand times shame on Obama for distorting the context of Romney's actions!
