I love how "upset" conservatives are getting because Obama's campaign has gone "negative." It seems like every other commercial here in Ohio is claiming that Obama is stealing money from your Grandma, hates all small businesses and other such nonsense, but those of course aren't negative, right?

Relevant statement in question:

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter laid out the issue as the Obama team sees it: "Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony."

"Or," she said, "he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments," including layoffs and the outsourcing of jobs.

If the latter is true, she said, it's a "real character and trust issue" that voters should be aware of as they decide who to vote for in the presidential election. If Romney was still at Bain through 2002, he's also "politically responsible for the consequences" of deals that the firm made through then.


Obama is technically correct. Nobody called Romney a felon . A felon is convicted of a felony. Romney is clearly not. Rather, Obama's spokeswoman is suggesting that Romney might've misrepresented his status to the SEC, which could be a felony.

It's a sliding scale.

Republican scale:
Positive ad: "Romney is a great candidate and Obama is a nice guy that didn't completely destroy our country yet, but it's best not to give him any more chances"
Neutral ad: "Obama is certainly going to kill your grandma and he's going to put all soldiers in jail that don't vote for him."
Negative ad: "Obama is a secret muslim Kenyan nubian."

Democratic scale:
Positive ad: [n/a]
Neutral ad: "Romney is a nice guy and we know that Obama is a horrible President, but please vote for Obama anyway."
Negative ad: "Romney actually said this / did this. Look how dumb he is."

So as you can see, Romney has put out hardly any negative ads against Obama, but nearly all of Obama's ads are negative.

Whoa, hold on, wait a second!

There's a rumor going around that MITT ROMNEY possibly might have COMMITTED A FELONY? I'd like to know if it's true or not, because if it is true then that means MITT ROMNEY COMMITTED A FELONY!

Of course, I would never accuse MITT ROMNEY of being a FELON without proof; and there's also the fact that MITT ROMNEY can easily prove he is not a FELON if he'd just release his tax returns. I'm just concerned that his failure to do so could result in many people wondering whether or not MITT ROMNEY IS A FELON! And the longer he delays in releasing his tax returns, the more people will ask if MITT ROMNEY COMMITTED A FELONY!

I apologize if this mini-rant may have further cemented the alleged word association between the words "MITT ROMNEY" and "FELON." I am merely voicing my concern.

BravadoGT: Politico had an article with several Obama lieutenants pushing that suggestion


From Your Article: The emergence of the SEC filings appears to conflict with that, the Obama campaign contends. There are "literally scores of filings that make it very, very clear that over a period of time that Gov. Romney claims that he was not active with Bain, the Securities and Exchange Commission was informed" that Romney was the chief executive officer, chairman of the board and sole shareholder of the company, Bauer said.

Images of those SEC filings have been posted here lots of times--including records that show Romney was consulted on transactions (like Stericycle) while he was in Utah after he "left" the firm. And that's not counting his 'retroactive' retirement pay. If he wasn't in charge the person who was acting CEO could step up at any time and say "I was in charge, not Romney." In fact in 2002 Bain people admitted they were reporting directly to Romney. I'm sure you'll find a way to argue that black is white and night is day but unlike Romney there's a paper trail doesn't work retroactively.

1. SEC filings list Romney as being the "controlling individual" at Bane during the time in question.
2. Romney says he was not involved with Bane during the time in question.
3. Filing a false SEC report is a felony.

Therefore, either Romney WAS involved with Bane during the time in question, or Romney filed false reports to the SEC which is a felony.

Bullshiat. It wasn't only him, and no one ever claimed it was, but without him, Osama is still alive. He went against most of his advisers and chose an extremely risky course of action.

If Osama weren't there and/or a SEAL had been injured or killed, the very people saying "Obama didn't do anything" would have held Obama personally and solely responsible, and Obama could have kissed a second term goodbye right then and there.

It was a risky, ballsy decision and he deserves credit for it.

Sensing a pattern here? Large, urban areas are predominantly Democratic. Rural, more sparsely-populated areas are not. That goes for above and below the Mason-Dixon line. If the only vote that elected the President was the popular vote, candidates would only appeal to heavily populated areas, where they have the best chance to get the most voters.

When you come back, be sure to have a good reason why states should stick with "winner take all" and not split the votes.

"Winner take all" is efficient, concise and, with two notable exceptions in nearly 220 years, pretty much an easier way to decide a Presidential vote.

Well, he was caught lying about the contents of his tax returns leading him to retroactively correct them to show him being a Mass. resident which are the requirements for running for governor. So kindly forgive me for not taking a proven liar at his word on what the contents of his tax returns are. Just as he was caught lying to either the SEC or to the American people about he retired from Bain. Either the papers he submitted to the SEC showing him as owner/ceo/etc are false, or he lied to the American people... There is no way both options are true.

Plus all of his official campaign ads I've seen here in Florida are based on lies. There is a lot to attack the president on that would be real and legitimate attacks. Attacking Obama for the content of a quote from John McCain, chopping a quote to pieces to make it into an attack ad again is very disingenuous. The politifact type sites have pretty much pointed out that all of his attack ads are lies.

Now, in contrast, you have Governor Romney creating as a centerpiece of his campaign, this notion that we are taking the work requirement out of welfare, which every single person here who has looked at it says it is patently false. What he is arguing is that we have somehow changed the welfare requirement, the work requirement in our welfare laws, and in fact what happened was that my administration, responding to requests of five governors, including two Republican governors, agreed to approve giving them - those states - some flexibility in how they manage their welfare rolls as long as it produced 20% increases in the number of people who are getting work.

They can run the campaign they want, but the truth of the matter is you can't just make stuff up. That is one thing you learn as President of the United States.You get called into account

God Is My Co-Pirate: I said it before, if I were Obama's campaign chief, I would be out there every day. "Nobody is calling Mitt Romney a felon. We absolutely reject any insinuation that Mitt Romney is a felon. Why, Mitt Romney himself says that Mitt Romney is not a felon, and if you can't trust Romney, you can you trust? No, Mitt Romney is definitely not a felon. Felon."


I, Barack Obama, take Mitt Romney at his word that he is not a felon. The extent of the crimes perpetrated by one Willard Mitt Romney is not in dispute. I personally have seen no evidence one way or the other that Mittens has laundered any drug money, although others may have. And if you can't take the word of someone who has been accused of associating with cocaine funded terrorists, of killing cancer patients, and of torturing dogs, then who can you trust?

Can someone give me a link to someone from the Obama campaign calling Romney a felon?

Not a Super PAC. I've been told that those have nothing to do with the campaign, and are blessed by supply side Jesus.

Also, considering many of the names that have been flung this Presidential election this one is pretty damn tame
