Mitt Romney has been attacked viciously by the Obama people in the past 48 hours, and being the honorable man he is he waited it out for 24 hours. Decided on a strategy and went to the big four Networks, AKA The MSM, today to respond to all of this Obama garbage.

Mitt Romney had this to say about his time at Bain and the attacks: " There’s a difference between being a shareholder - an owner, if you will - and being a person who’s running an entity. That the president has been a failure when it comes to reigniting America’s economy. He continues to try to find some way to attack me other than talk policy.” This comes from the same paper that "broke" the "story" about his own time at Bain.

On CNN today, Howard Kurtz had this to say about Obama's campaign rhetoric: [W]hen you combine all the stories, all the airtime, all the column inches, it looks to many people, I'll just say this bluntly, like the press is giving much more aggressive scrutiny to Romney and his background than it ever gave to Barack Obama," Kurtz told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

Something amazing happened Thursday Anderson Coopers' Show on CNN.

Not only did the host and his guests David Gergen and John King claim presumptive Republican presidential nominee Mittt Romney is right that he left Bain Capital prior to any companies it held outsourcing employees, Gergen accused President Obama of "playing a very rough form of politics" counter to what he promised when he ran in 2008

The New York Times Today, defended Mitt Romney after Obama launched a false Abortion Ad against Romney, claiming that he flip flopped on the issue. When he never actually did!

Time magazine's Michael Scherer -- no Romney backer he -- slammed the Obama spot as "centered on a clear untruth," and delved into the comments the ad took wildly out of context in order to appeal to women voters on the basis of a "scary falsehood"

and finally again, CNN has an article out just today, defending Mitt Romney, saying that he is not an ideological political person. He is a business person, and he is NOT used to all of this bi-partisan crazy talk. He is also not a flip flopper, in business you take a gamble, and investment when it is appropriate and when it is the most acceptable course of action for both parties involved.
CNN: Romney Not A Flip Flopper

IDK about you, but I think that description pretty much fits who I want as President of this country. Someone who will set aside ideologies and smear campaigns and DEAL with the PROBLEMS, THE FACTS, AND THE ISSUES!!!!!!! had this to say about the attack ads about Romney's time at Bain. "But the Obama campaign objected, claiming that Romney remained a part-time manager even while he was living in Utah and running the Olympics. We responded, finding the campaign’s evidence “weak or non-existent.”
Little New in Obama Claims also weighed in on Obama's claims that Romney is an outsourcer and had this to say among other things. "The “Come and Go” ad casts Romney as a “corporate raider,” but that term, loaded with negative connotations, is simply inaccurate. Bain didn’t engage in hostile takeovers when Romney was at the helm."

Did you read your CNN source?

Dean Obeidallah, a former attorney, is a political comedian and frequent commentator on various TV networks including CNN. He is the editor of the politics blog "The Dean's Report" and co-director of the upcoming documentary, "The Muslims Are Coming!"

The last part

But for others like myself, Romney's CEO core and ever evolving product line lead to doubt about every word he says.

And like a like the politician this person is he also says "For many, a CEO-style president could be a good fit. Romney's track record indicates he will likely be a pragmatic leader, not rigidly beholden to ideology."

What's your point?

Who care's? Both parties work for the same people and it's not us.
