Romney confident in Ohio stops

Cincinnati (CNN) – Mitt Romney made little news in Ohio on Saturday, a sign that his campaign is confident some good news is on the way on Super Tuesday.

Sensing an upward tick in Ohio momentum, a trend acknowledged both by Romney campaign advisers and Republican insiders here, the former Massachusetts governor largely ignored his rivals at two campaign events and sounded instead like the Republican nominee, hammering President Barack Obama’s management of the economy and the military.

On-message with social media? Good luck with that

Cincinnati (CNN) - Mitt Romney had a mutiny on his hands. Not with his staff but with his embeds.

The hardworking, 20- and 30-something off-camera network news reporters who chronicle Romney's every public utterance had decided on a plan: They would band together and confront the candidate working the rope line, mini-cams in hand, with the hopes of forcing Romney to comment on the Rush Limbaugh controversy.

Paul calls Limbaugh comments 'crude'

(CNN) – Ron Paul became the latest presidential hopeful to weigh in on controversial and incendiary language used by radio commentator Rush Limbaugh to describe a college student, telling reporters Friday the remarks were in poor taste.

"It sounded a little crude the way it came across to me," Paul said. "I don't know why it has to be such a political football like this, so you have to ask him about his crudeness."
