at the Real Clear Politics website

at the 'no toss up' states map they now have Romney within one or two states of winning this

if that happens, on the list of people that contributed to that happening I would put Jon Stewart towards the top of the list.

How is it Jon Stewart's fault?

This is a genuine Obama campaign ad. It's funny, but really? Seriously, come on. The real point is that PBS is a tiny fraction of our budget woes. And Mitt does need to leave Big Bird alone. I heart Big Bird. And Ernie, and Cookie Monster. Oscar the grouch, no. He's dispensable.

I actually love that ad. We could use a little sarcasm and humor in politics.

it's a silly ad and says nothing, during that same debate all of America heard reasonable Romney say we need regulation and he supports it.

Wall Street is not the problem. Most Americans don't believe that, big bird is not the problem. Government spending is part of the problem.

Showing a few crooks and calling them Wall Street just shows how out of touch some people are. Besides if you asked anyone who is more important to our financial security? Wall Street or Big Bird? What would the answer be?

Romney Pledges to Keep Tax Deductions for Mortgages
By TRIP GABRIEL and HELENE COOPER

CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio — Continuing to embrace a more moderate political persona, Mitt Romney offered assurances on Tuesday that he would protect tax deductions for the middle class on home mortgages and charitable donations.

He also said he had no plans to pursue new laws limiting abortion.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” he told the editorial board of The Des Moines Register.

With new polling suggesting that he was closing the gap with President Obama in the crucial battleground of Ohio, Mr. Romney subtly distanced himself from earlier divisive statements as he sought to broaden his appeal, especially with women.
Why would anyone not want to give this guy a chance? He is so reasonable.

This election has turned purely into a culture war, because no one actually has any idea what Mitt Romney's policies in office would be.

John Kerry was destroyed by the Right for being a flip flopper, and now they have one that's an even bigger flop than him!!!!

yep. Hopefully Obama will really go on the aggressive in the next debate.

I remember the one thing that stuck with me in 2004 was within all of Bush's rambling, he called Kerry a flip flopper at least 15 times in the town hall debate.

Considering the obvious short attention span of our country (proven by the new polls after the first debate), I believe that if Obama says the word "Flip Flop" enough, he should secure the victory.

The problem, though, is tha Obama -- like all successful black men -- is keenly aware of the "angry black man" caricature and what that does to conservative whites. Kind of like how women must be "ladylike" at all times.

Good point, I wonder how subtle, sarcastic jabs would come across. Maybe say things like "Interesting position Mr. Romney. Definitely a different position than yesterday. What will your position be on _____ issue tomorrow?"

This is one of the major complications of American political culture. People consistently decry the negativity and smear-campaigns of election season, but then when a candidate appears measured and unwilling to take jabs at the opponent, that candidate is labeled "soft" or "weak." I think that is a tightrope that every presidential candidate, Republican or Democrat, will find difficult to walk.

“There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,” he told the editorial board of The Des Moines Register.

The smartest thing that he could possibly do at this point in terms of his campaign viability is to back off the social issues. I have no idea whether he would hold to the above statement if elected, but he must have realized that he cannot possibly win while holding antagonistic attitudes toward women and many minority demographics.

I'm hoping Paul Ryan is dumb/zealous enough to fall into that trap though. The margin for error is so small right now, he can easily drag Romney down by association.
