Romney tries to dislodge Obama from attack

(CNN) – New ads from the presidential campaigns encapsulate where the race stands, with President Barack Obama's camp continuing its assault on his challenger over his business record and refusal to share tax records and Mitt Romney trying to make allegations of cronyism knock the incumbent off the assault.

A new Romney TV commercial advances the campaign's latest attack strategy, accusing Obama's administration of sending taxpayer dollars to failed energy companies whose owners contributed to his campaign.

  1. Hussein Obama the communist

    Dominican mama 4 Obama – Just because someone from a different country does something (eat dog) doesn't make it American but people are to ignorant to understand things like that. Hussein Obamination and his communists break and avoid laws at will and they do in fact break and ignore many laws hence they've broken their oath of office.

    Just because another country does it doesn't make it American. There are countries that have polygamy. Let's legalize it right?

  3. Obama 2012 - MOVE Forward America, NOT another round of DUBYA's FAILURES

    @Myviewis – in other words our country is in the hands of a non-experienced, non-academic ex-lawyer because even his license expired in 2002.
    ---------------------------
    To which I say so what? It was in the hands of non-experienced, non-academic, non-lawyer, failed oil-man, draft-dodging daddy's-boy for EIGHT years, who managed to totally hose the economy with helps from dad's friends. At least the ex-lawyer is making an attempt to correct the mess, despite all the contemptuous Grand Obstructionist Party has done to block his every attempt.

    @willard bullock, please take President Obama's advice and get an education. Trying to read your comments is worse than trying to understand what my 2 year old granddaughter is saying. Please.

    @ Obama 2012 – MOVE Forward America, NOT another round of DUBYA's FAILURES

    Probably so the rest of us can have a good laugh at their intellectual inferiority. I get a kick out of their same silly wingnut garbage that shows that their tinfoil hats are on just a bit too tight. They have issues with people that don't look like them; probably go through life being scared individuals - like Willard was during Vietnam.

    It amazes me that many of you still support obama...ie...the 28 months of job growth and obama being pulled down to Romneys level and much much more foolishness. obama took a normal business cycle slump aggravated by the mortgage crisis (that he helped facilitate) and turned this into a near complete collapse of our economy. He has done nothing that would facilitate the creation of real jobs in this country and squandered trillions of dollars to advance himself politically. He is a proven fraud and pledger in his novel writing career, a small time civil rights attorney, a community organizer (helping to dispense hard earned tax dollars to those who refuse to work, in chicago), a second rate law school lecturer (not a professor), a radical state representative, and a very very undistinguished Jr US senator. And folks, his presidency is indicative of all of this. Obama declared he would close the terrorist prisons when he knew we had built them to house terrorists who are not legal combatants nor US criminals and these prisons were created lawfully and due in part to the fact the terrorists own countries would not take them back...he knew these prisons took better care of the prisoners than our own prisons housing Americans...he lied to you, because he has not closed the prisons and he has tried his hardest to release these dangerous murders loose. obama needs to go...we have a chance to elect a real demonstrated leader who loves his country and has a real honest resume'...a moral man with a real history...a man with an American brain.

    I commend you for facing your fears. By including the President’s middle name in your post, you can finally tackle your fear of Muslims and the name ‘Hussein’. Take heart, your Walmart is safe from Al Qaeda.

    Why is it that CNN let's these trolls post outright and inaccurate, fabricated information in commentary?

    -------------------------

    You said it, an attempt and from a man who had no experience in the public sector or academics in it for that matter. Bush was a Governor. Seriously, don't you guys know anything?

    Paradoxical Quote of The Day From Ben Stein:
    "Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen."
    Add to this that, many of those who refuse or are unable to prove they are citizens, will receive free insurance paid for by those who are.
