Maybe Mitt has decided to let it all hang out. Rather than try to hide what's obvious to everyone, the new strategy is to make Romney's liabilities into assets by flaunting them. The new bumper-sticker: ROMNEY-TRUMP IN 2012. YOU'RE FIRED!
At the very least, Democrats could hit Trump where it hurts most: in his wallet.
It is important to note some worrisome signs indicating that Mitt Romney and his campaign may have opted for a more subtle approach to establishing the "otherness" of Barack Obama.
Practical politics consists in ignoring facts. -- --Henry Brooks Adams, The Education of Henry Adams Two bits of bad news to dampen a...
The following points are not meant to take a side on the left-right debate, but simply to present a fuller picture of the pamphlet in question and the accusations made.

On Obama's birth certificate, on climate, and in lots of other areas, I think we tend to see people speaking out of need or desire, not clear thought. Tribal, partisan interests dominate discourse much more than an honest pursuit of truth.
WorldNetDaily's Jerome Corsi is violating journalistic ethics by playing both sides of the fence -- writing about an investigation he not only instigated but participated in.
A party of birthers, creationists, theocrats, climate-change deniers, nativists, gay-bashers and anti-abortionists cannot govern America. Yet even if they lose the presidency on Election Day they're still likely to be in charge of at least one house of Congress.
