Romney Lies About Anti-Abortion Bills He Backs

Mitt Romney's history on abortion reads like the Kama Sutra: it contains almost every position imaginable. Now, the man GOP strategist and former Romney adviser Michael Murphy in 2005 called "a pro-life Mormon faking it as a pro-choice friendly" is at it again. In a meeting with the Des Moines Register editorial board, Romney declared, […]

Romney Endorses Middle East Peace Process He Mocked

In his latest October surprise, Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney used a major foreign address Monday to declare he would provide renewed leadership for the Middle East process.

Republicans and their media water-carriers are apoplectic about Friday's report showing the unemployment rate dipped to 7.8 percent in September as the U.S. economy added 114,000 new jobs. But while many conservatives have been quick to follow in Richard Nixon's footsteps in accusing the career civil servants at the BLS of cooking the books for […]

Obama Forgot Romney Wanted to Privatize Social Security

Among the most mysterious moments in President Obama's puzzling performance in Wednesday's debate with Mitt Romney was his response to a question about Social Security. "I suspect that on Social Security," the President said, "We've got a somewhat similar position." Obama couldn't have been more wrong. As it turns out, Mitt Romney doesn't merely want […]

Right-Wing Media Goes from "Obama Bear Market" to "Romney Rally"

What a difference a day makes.

Romney's Plan to Create 12 Million Jobs? Do Nothing

As he has been saying for months, Mitt Romney during Wednesday's presidential debate promised to create 12 million jobs during his first term in the White House.

Trailing Again, Romney Changes Tax Plan Again

Back in February, Mitt Romney's campaign to win the Republican nomination was in crisis.

How Bain is Bilking Taxpayers and Making Americans Sick

Last week, Attorney General Eric Holder and HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius sent a letter to five hospital trade organizations warning against the abuse of electronic medical record systems to seek inflated Medicare reimbursements.
