Let's give Romney the credit for a good showing in the debate. But, why are the pundits not questioning what a Romney in the Oval Office would really be thinking deep down?

Mitt Romney's 47 Percent Pay-No-Taxes Video Should Cost Him the Election

Mike Watson | Posted 09.19.2012 | Politics

Does this mean in Mitt Romney's eyes, at least 47 percent of Americans are quite possibly worthless degenerates who will never take personal responsibility and care for their own lives, no matter what encouragement Mitt may try to give to them?

If Mitt Romney wanted to connect with his audience, he mostly succeeded, at least with the audience inside the Tampa Bay Times Forum. He was measured in tone, not really bombastic and full of pronouncements of love about his family and what he hopes for America.

The American people are likely to learn less about Mitt Romney the person than they would like -- because a significant part of Romney's personal history is not something he wants either conservative Republicans or the rest of the electorate focused on.

Barack Obama Would Be an American Citizen Even if Born in Kenya, So Why Does the Media Keep Fanning the Story?

Michael Russnow

Even if Barack Obama were born in Kenya (which I don't believe to be the case) the president still would have been a U.S. citizen at birth, because his mother was an American, a fact which nobody to this date denies.

Romney's Ryan Timing: A Taxing Matter?

Bruce Judson | Posted 10.17.2012 | Politics
Bruce Judson

As Mitt's dad noted, tax returns over a short period can be manipulated. By failing to provide verification of any kind, Mitt is failing to create trust among the electorate that he will ultimately need to govern, if he is elected.
