Ryan outfits daughter with deer-hunting gear

Cincinnati, Ohio (CNN) – Gearing up for deer-hunting season, Rep. Paul Ryan bought hunting clothes for his daughter to go with the rifle the Republican vice presidential nominee gave her for Christmas.

Brown doesn't 'condone' staffers' actions

(CNN) - Republican Sen. Scott Brown, engaged in one of the nation's closest battles for U.S. Senate against Democrat Elizabeth Warren, said Tuesday he does not condone the offensive gestures and sounds some of his staffers made at a rally this week.

The Brown staffers were captured on video making "war whoops" and "tomahawk chops," an apparent reference to the controversy surrounding Warren's claim to Native American heritage during her time as a professor at Harvard Law School. Both Brown and Warren released television spots Monday on the topic.

Clinton: Iran cannot be trusted with nuclear program

(CNN) - Former President Bill Clinton weighed in one of the election's pressing international issues Tuesday saying Iran's President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad cannot be trusted regarding his country's nuclear ambitions.

In an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight" to air Tuesday at 9 pm E.T., Clinton also addressed domestic politics and the strike by the NFL referees. Regarding Republican nominee Mitt Romney's potentially damaging "47%" comments, Clinton forecast that continuing to defend the remarks will be detrimental to the former governor in the election. And his ruling on the questionable, game-changing call made by a replacement referee on Monday night's prime time football game mirrored that of many observers.

Washington (CNN) – Amid criticism from his Republican opponent that his foreign policy "projects weakness," President Barack Obama confronted Iran and Syria on Tuesday and warned those who killed an American diplomat in Libya that they would be tracked down.

"The attacks on our civilians in Benghazi were attacks on America," Obama told the United Nations General Assembly. "...And there should be no doubt that we will be relentless in tracking down the killers and bringing them to justice."

Biden attacks Romney over 2011 tax return

Chesterfield, Virginia (CNN) - Four days after Mitt Romney released his 2011 tax return, Vice President Joe Biden used his first in-person campaign opportunity on Tuesday to pounce: comparing Romney's effective tax rate against that of a middle class person.

"Ladies and gentlemen, somebody today in America making $23,000 a year pays over 20-percent of their income in taxes, in some form of taxes," Biden said. "A couple making a hundred thousand dollars a year, they pay 29-percent in total tax."

Romney says he's 'kind of' partisan

(CNN) – Mitt Romney joked Tuesday about being "terribly partisan" during a question and answer session devoted to the subject of education.

Romney said as president, he wouldn't prevent teachers from going on strike, as they recently did in Chicago. But the GOP presidential nominee said he thought the influence of teachers' unions on the Democratic Party was bad for policy.
