Obama compares Romney's rhetoric to 'cow pie of distortion'

Des Moines, Iowa (CNN) - President Barack Obama returned to the politically-important state of Iowa on Thursday for the third time this year for a mixture of official and campaign business.

But in all cases, he took the opportunity to attack his presumed opponent.

    I think the metaphor worked perfectly, just as designed. Pres. Obama gave conservatives a "take that" going away present to cogitate over the weekend. Mitt Romney's entire job creation narrative is "cow pie." Good call, Barack.

    @ cheryl Jeffries
    Maybe you should do a little fact checking before you go runing off with the same lies Romney, Limbaugh, O'Reilly and the rest of the " boys " are spouting off. He did what he had to do to save the country from even more of an economic downslide. You just hate it because it worked, don't you. Bush is responsible for the mess we are in and if you just used your head you would realize that.

    Romney casts himself as the man who understands business and can make things run smoothly. Yet, he still cannot give a consistent account of his work at Bain 2 decades after he initially began his attempts at attaining public office, he cannot give a consistent account as to why he went to the Federal Government begging for funds to save the SLC Olympics, he cannot discuss his tenure as Governor because that would expose his record of raising fees, cutting education funding and imposing a universal mandate. His record of being truthful is a joke, yet he casts himself as a problem-solver. His record raises more questions than it answers, which is why he is not running on his accomplishments: could he be he knows he is NOT qualified for the position? Seems like Newt, Perry, and Santorum knew this, and if they could figure it out, anyone can.

    @ Fair is Fair...
    I agree with you I wish he WOULD bring out the charts and graphs showing the truth about government spending and other stuff you righties try to pin him with. Might shut you FoxNewsies up for a bit since more than likely that is where you get all your "facts" LOL.
