Maybe Romney only admitted his mistake because he had a little extra political capital to spend after his successful debate. Or maybe he just did it because it was the right thing to do. Smart business people admit their mistakes immediately.

While it is true that some individuals do overcome great odds to earn large paychecks, it does not follow that the majority of people in this country who do not have great wealth are any less caring or responsible human beings.

No such luck for Harry Reid, who had asserted, without any real evidence, that Romney had for some years not paid income tax. "Where's your evidence?" -- they rightly asked Harry, and hearing none, and cutting him off. But for Jack, it was, like, "Have a chair Jack, let's let everyone hear your story!"

For Democrats to win this race, we have to go back to the values debate and the 47 percent video every day. This is our ultimate trump card because it makes 100 percent clear what Romney's core values are, even as he is now running from them in public.

I have many times had friends of the family say to me how wonderful it was that my parents took Kevin in, and it was. But our family's payoff from having Kevin as our brother and son and loving uncle to all our nieces and nephews was far, far greater than what we gave.

Crucially, the president himself must become a critic. One flop may not an election make, but a second one? Can't happen. At the next rumble -- er, debate -- Mr. Obama must pull off Mr. Romney's many masks and expose his contradictions.

Going Back to What Works

Mike Lux | Posted 12.09.2012 | Politics
Mike Lux

What the Obama ads have been doing ever since the debate is to say, in a variety of ways using a variety of validators from the media, that Romney lied. It sure is true, but that isn't convincing to swing voters.
