NYT Editorial: The Economy and the Blame …. The problem with Mr. Romney’s “blame Obama” mantra is that Mr. Obama is not responsible for the deep and protracted recession that predated his administration and is at the root of the persistently high unemployment. Job creation under Mr. Obama’s term far outpaced the job growth following the first recession of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2001. New evidence released this week showed recent employment has been stronger than previously tallied.

…. The challenge is to foster the recovery and then put the budget on a sustainable path. Meeting the first challenge requires a belief that government has a stimulative role to play at times of economic weakness and a willingness to play it, which only Mr. Obama has demonstrated. Meeting the budget challenge requires raising taxes, which Mr. Obama is prepared to do but Mr. Romney is not.

He has assumed voters will reject Mr. Obama because of the weak economy. They may well re-elect him because the economy needs more help.

Dana Milbank: Meet Willard Mitt Romney, champion of the common man ….. When it comes to speaking up for the downtrodden, Romney isn’t just another man of the people. He is the Rolls-Royce of populists.

With evidence building that his prospects have been hurt by his dismissal of nearly half the country as moochers, Romney has been making it his job to worry about the 47 percent of Americans he famously said it wasn’t his job to worry about.

But when such an appeal is attempted by a man who has painstakingly crafted for himself a public image combining Scrooge McDuck and Thurston Howell III, there is bound to be a certain amount of awkwardness and inconsistency…..

…. Why the Baron of Bain would be making a late appeal to the downtrodden is obvious. The latest Washington Post-ABC News poll finds that Americans regard Romney’s “47 percent” remarks negatively, 54 percent to 32 percent. Respondents who self-describe as independent, the all-important demographic, regarded the comments even more negatively.

Charles Blow: Mitt Romney is losing badly. And he has only himself to blame. Not only is he trailing President Obama in almost every national poll, he’s trailing in almost every poll of swing states.

What is the Republican response? That there must be some magical, maniacal skew in the numbers, and the skew must be a conscious effort by a scheming, elite media to dampen Republican enthusiasm.

…. This is just an extension of the Republican war on facts. If you find a truth disagreeable, simply deny it. Call it corrupt. Suggest that it is little more than one side of a story — an opinionated, biased one — and insist that there is another explanation. The base will buy it.

Let’s just call this Operation Ostrich…..

Daily Beast: Barack Obama’s Campaign Scoring Points With Video Gamers

You’ve sunk my battleship! That popular phrase ran endlessly in long-ago TV commercials promoting the board-game version of naval warfare. Now, that battleground has morphed into a digital shootout that could tip the balance of the presidential campaign.

The Obama team has targeted Battleship and 17 other online games—including Scrabble, Tetris, and Madden NFL 13—in highly contested swing states to woo legions of early voters.

By placing ads alongside these popular titles by Electronic Arts, the president’s campaign hopes to replicate the past success of this strategy. In 2008, surveys found that gamers who saw political ads were 120 percent more likely to have a positive reaction to the candidate, and 50 percent more likely to consider casting a vote for him.

      VC – As it’s almost October – Rasmussen is suddenly beginning to catch up with the other polls (how to keep a rating as a good pollster) – so that landslide is starting
      “The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows President Obama attracting support from 48% of voters nationwide, while Mitt Romney earns the vote from 46%.” This poll has been equal or Mitt ahead for weeks, while every other poll is 4-6 points for the President.

          They come right back into line with every other poll by November, so get to say how accurate they were – fortunately most of the pundits know that & take no notice of these polls until the last few weeks. The total aim of Rasmussen is to support the GOP.

                  Yes, the president does in deed look years younger here. He is a good looking man, and is very fit. If not I think the last 4 years would have really put a hutin on him :smile: I’ve always seen huge differences in how our president look just a year or two after office. It is a weighty job, with huge responsibilites and so many choices to make. I laugh ever time PBO or FLOTUS tells how Michille tells the president that he asked for this [job] and they laugh. It is not joke, made so much more of strain by the shinnanigans of the republicans.

                  Yes, Michelle Obama is indeed a “mighty weapon” and “the closer.” I love the “Be Not Afraid” speech. You and I both would love to have the awesome opportunity to see the POTUS speak in person. A handshake let alone one of the great hugs would be icing on the cake!

    Vice President Joe Biden will make a campaign stop in Fort Myers today as part of a two-day tour through Florida. He was in Tamarac and Boca Raton on Friday.

    Biden’s plane touched down at Southwest Florida International Airport around 6:30 p.m. Friday, and he was escorted to the Crowne Plaza at Bell Tower Shops.

    Later Friday night, he stopped at Italian restaurant Two Meatballs In The Kitchen off Daniels Parkway.

    He is slated to speak at 11:40 a.m. at the Wa-Ke Hatchee Park Recreation Center at 16760 Bass Road. Doors open at 9:30 a.m. for those who have tickets.

    Tickets were made available Wednesday, with the last of them being handed out on Friday.

    TORONTO — Canada’s public safety minister says the last Western detainee held at Guantanamo has returned to Canada.

    Vic Toews said Saturday that 26-year-old Omar Khadr arrived at a military base on a U.S. government plane early Saturday and has been transferred to Millhaven maximum security prison in Bath, Ontario.

    Khadr pleaded guilty in 2010 to killing a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan and was eligible to return to Canada from Guantanamo Bay last October under terms of a plea deal.

    Khadr was 15 when he was captured in 2002 in Afghanistan, and has spent a decade at Guantanamo, the U.S. naval base in Cuba. He received an eight-year sentence in 2010.

    Khadr was convicted of throwing a grenade that killed Army Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer during a 2002 firefight.

    Excellent article on how the media will try to generate the ‘Romney comeback narrative':

    http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2012/09/the-coming-romney-comeback-narrative/262876/

    Please read and if you tweet send around to all journalists who are likely to offend. I think it would be a good idea to put them on notice that the people are onto their games. Perhaps early pushback may help to mitigate the fullness of the ‘comeback’ story.

    Also please tweet to jim lehrer (if so inclined) the following question: ‘are you prepared to deal with candidate Romney’s continual fibbing or are you just going to let him lie to the American people during debate’?

    Good idea to cc other journalists into the tweets – it adds to the shame as some clever poster explained here

    So the media don’t think it’s new worthy when Ann Romney says she is concern about Mitt Romney mental health if he is elected. Maybe we have to do what the media won’t do, which is ask what did Ann mean when she said that? We face problems in this country and all over the world, and we don’t need someone with mental problems leading us. No, No, No.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/09/romneys-plan-win-virginia-lyme-disease

    On Thursday evening, Anahita Nemat, a conservative PR specialist living in Northern Virginia, tweeted out this photo, with the description: “Received my first mailer from @MittRomney & @PaulRyanVP today. It talks about Lyme Disease. Huh? I’m confused! Why?”

    We were confused too. But it turns out that Romney has, over the last few months, actually made Lyme disease—the bacterial disease transmitted to humans from deer ticks—part of his pitch to suburban Virginia voters. It started back in August, when he sent a public letter (paid for by the campaign) to Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) commending him for his push to create a “Tick-Borne Diseases Advisory Committee.” “More needs to be done,” Romney wrote. “As president, I will work to ensure that more attention is focused on this important issue … We need to ensure that all scientific viewpoints concerning this illness can be heard.”

    snip/

    That Lyme disease epidemic Romney is so concerned about? The spread of the disease is aided and abetted by climate change. Lyme Disease already costs the US $2.5 billion annually, is expected to double in geographic scope over the next 70 years. But Romney has said government should do nothing to stop man-made climate change—if it’s even happening at all. “My view is that we don’t know what’s causing climate change on this planet,” he said at a debate last October. “And the idea of spending trillions and trillions of dollars to try to reduce CO2 emissions is not the right course for us.”

    http://www.motherjones.com/mojo/2012/09/most-damning-line-secret-romney-video

    I’ve been repeatedly asked what I consider the most damaging—or damning—portion of Romney’s remarks. I’ve noted that the great thing about this story is that people can watch the video for themselves—7 million people went to this site or YouTube in the first days of the video’s release and did that—and reach their own conclusions.

    Yet one sentence did stand out to me. When Romney was in mid-rant about the 47 percent—simplistically and erroneously conflating three subsets of Americans: those who voted for Barack Obama, those who receive some form of government assistance, and those who pay no federal income taxes—he said:

    I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.

    Here was Romney sharing his view that Americans who don’t make enough money to pay income taxes and his fellow citizens who rely on Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, or other government programs are lesser people than he and the millionaires before him. These people, Romney was saying, are not adults; they do not, and will not, fend for themselves or do what they must to feed, clothe, shelter, educate, and care for themselves and their family members. It was an arrogant insult spoken with true detachment. This was 100-percent 1-percent.

    My view of this one line was reinforced this morning. I walked into a store to buy some cleaning products. The 40-something woman at the counter rang up the purchases and kept looking at me. Once I had paid, she said in a low voice, “I really don’t want to bother you, but…”

    Go ahead, I said.

    But I know who you are, and I just want to say that Mitt Romney doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Not at all. I am college-educated, but look where I’m working now. I can’t find a better job now. And, and….

    She paused and lowered her voice more:

    I’m on food stamps. I didn’t have a choice. I’m making about $12,000 a year now. And I need them. I work hard. And I’m looking for other work. But just because I’m on food stamps doesn’t mean I’m not taking care of myself. Doesn’t he know that? Doesn’t he get it?

    Saw a bit of a PBS segment last night, where a middle school boy in Florida and some of his classmates did a video about their school – and all of the challenges they faced there (which sometimes started through bullying via social media) and in the neighborhood where they were growing up – and what a fine young man he was. When his younger sister who went to the nearby elementary school almost got accosted by a guy in a car, one morning, he started taking the time out to walk her directly to her bus stop, each day, so she’d be safe. And he wasn’t a bit embarrassed about it. The young videographers got accolades from PBS and their teachers, and even the male principal said he had to stop his interview because their questions were so good, he had to go “check the data” to give them the best answers. The young male student was interviewed at the end of the segment and he said something like, “I just wish … I just wish our President could see what we young black Americans are trying to do to get through school and make something of ourselves and grow up to be good dads” (paraphrased). Gulp. Still feel like crying that the first ROLE MODEL he thought of was our President.

    I see that Ann Romney is worried about Mitt’s mental health should he become President. That begs the question, is Mitt on any type of medication? I have first hand experience with taking medication because of certain issues, I really hope Mitt is not taken on too much. I’m voting for President Obama, but that doesn’t mean I can’t wish for Mitt to have good health.

    What ho, TOD peeps?

    In honor of Chelsea beating Arsenal—and because blue IS the color of our side of the aisle—I’m sure Ms. Chips will extend me some latitude in posting this stirring video:

    Parody – Ann Romney: “Stop It! You People Leave Mitt Romney Alone”

  45. September 29, 2012 at 12:29 pm

    10 h later, thinking about it … this remains the most startling & certainly unprecedented statement from a spouse of a Presidential candidate I’ve ever heard and it is something Americans must take as a serious warning … no joke … and, I am not attacking Ann D Romney in any way, just the opposite ….

      I totally agree Bobfr. As I said yesterday, this comment from Ann Romney just magnifies the notion that there is something seriously wrong with Mitt Romney. I still don’t know why Mitt’s pathological lying isn’t a bigger story. How do you build your entire campaign on lies? I have never seen anything like this. Steve Benen should get a book deal from all of this “Chronicling Mitt’s Mendacity” posts.

      A few days ago Jim Acosta of CNN confronted Romney about the fact that his ads have not been truthful. Without skipping a beat, Romeny said (paraphrasing) that his campaign has been above board and that they have corrected any errors. I watched this segment and it really scared me. This man lies with such ease. He just comes across as morally bankrupt. And has the nerve to say that HE will be fact checking President Obama at the debates. He has turned “PROJECTION” into an art form.

      Ann Romney has lived with Mitt for many years and has probably had to cope with his “mental well being” many times. I get to have some warning thoughts about Mitt’s behavior when Miss Ann makes some of these remarks.

      I’m wondering how he will behave when he loses – that speech may have to be outsourced.
