And yet our presidential campaign has devolved into a never-ending contest to see which side can catch other side in the worst "gaffe."

All this Republican talk of war is meant to deflect attention away from their number one problem: Mitt Romney.

We are still many months away from "November Madness," and the race will not be a slam-dunk for either candidate.

Romney Just Keeps On Telling the Truth

His honest confessions are not only refreshing, but they are proof that he has no clear picture of the challenges facing the average American. And without understanding those challenges, no voter should believe he can eliminate them.
