Romney Campaign Said to Ask Scott to Downplay Job Gains - Bloomberg

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign asked Florida Governor Rick Scott to tone down his statements heralding improvements in the state’s economy because they clash with the presumptive Republican nominee’s message that the nation is suffering under President Barack Obama, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Scott, a Republican, was asked to say that the state’s jobless rate could improve faster under a Romney presidency, according to the people, who asked not to be named.

The ad — which the network seems to have a love/hate relationship with, as it’s been removed and replaced from its website at various points today — starts with footage meant to represent the former Obama with his message of hope and change back in 2008 and then moves into the darker times of today.

But there’s just one problem: The montage of the cheering fans from yesterday seems to include footage from just a few weeks ago. About 35 seconds into the ad, the camera follows Obama walking into a packed arena, and one woman can be seen holding a campaign sign that reads “Forward” — a slogan the campaign adopted less than a month ago.

[…]

Update: Fox News’ Executive Vice President of Programming, Bill Shine, tells Yahoo News, “The package that aired on ‘Fox & Friends’ was created by an associate producer and was not authorized at the senior executive level of the network.”

A Hawaii official announced late Tuesday that the state gave Arizona’s top elections official the verification he wanted showing President Barack Obama was indeed born there in 1961.

And wouldn’t it be a treat if this ended the bullshit once and for all? I’m not going to hold my breath …

Herman Cain has a lot of bad ideas. Selling a bumper sticker on his campaign’s official website that implies whipping a black president like a slave probably isn’t even the worst one he’s had since lunch. But it doesn’t really matter. Because Herman Cain doesn’t waste time on thoughts like “Is this the most awful slogan an African-American candidate could possibly ever use” or “Does 9-9-9 make any sense whatsoever,” or “Does this woman really want  her genitals groped.” Herman Cain is a man of action.

Additional evidence that Rachel Maddow is right and the entire Cain campaign is performance art.

Anita Perry: We know pain of unemployed because our banker son quit his job - Salon.com

sarahlee310:

…Apparently, the Perrys know all too well the pain of unemployed Americans, because their own son has lost his job. Not just that, but he was made jobless by the Obama administration’s onerous regulations! The conservative nightmare scenario played out right in their own family!

“My son had to resign his job because of federal regulations that Washington has put on us,” Mrs. Perry said while campaigning for her husband in South Carolina, after a voter shared the story of losing his job.

She is speaking of Griffin Perry. Griffin Perry, who worked at Deutsche Bank until recently, when he had to quit in order to work on his father’s presidential campaign.

“He resigned his job two weeks ago because he can’t go out and campaign with his father because of SEC regulations,” she continued, referring to the Securities and Exchange Commission. “He has a wife… he’s trying to start a business. So I can empathize.”

“My son lost his job because of this administration,” she said a few minutes later.

She can relate to the downtrodden because Barack Obama forced her son the banker to quit his job in order to help his father run for president. Griffin Perry is the 53 percent.

Excuse me while I clean the vomit off of my keyboard.

Assholery right up there with Mitt’s “I’m Unemployed Too”

Politico asks the question out loud.

FrumForum: The answer from Perry’s friends and supporters is not reassuring.

“I would hope that whoever the Republican candidate is, he or she will not tell us that creationism or intelligent design is the equivalent of evolution - just another theory about the origins of the biological man,” said the syndicated Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer, who declined to weigh in on specific candidates, though Perry was recently recorded telling a young boy on a rope line that Texas schools teach both theories. “To put intelligent design on that level is like offering grade school children a choice between astronomy and astrology,” he said.

Conservative elites pine for 2012 hero - Jonathan Martin and Ben Smith - POLITICO

[W]hile the right’s opinion elite may not have the broad sway of a Rush Limbaugh or Fox News, their indecision has consequences. In particular, they’re influential among the GOP’s donor class - much of which remains on the sidelines.

We’re courting somebody to come court us,” quipped National Review senior editor Ramesh Ponnuru
