Obama comes out and calls the Koch brothers Romney ad 'BS'. And sets the record straight on their outright lies.
They need to do MORE of this. Don't let them frame the narrative, and outright call them liars when they lie.
Speaking of the US elections and government as a whole, I found an article about the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget's online budget simulator and I've been playing with it.
It's an interesting exercise in balancing the budget and fascinating to see what it actually does. Also, I think it's a good reality check on just how little the impact of some cuts would be on solving the problem. Currently I've gotten to 60% of GDP by 2023 with a combination of cuts and increases and I'm still not happy with the impact and some of the choices. Also the writeups for this Canadian on each of the measures, I found to be very well done and useful.
'The marquis. Well, you know, to be honest, he seems a little bit dodgy to me.'
'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."
Mitt calling a defeated candidate a friend is not that important. Most defeated candidate join the nominee to help win the election. Hillary Clinton supported Obama when obama won the nominee.
Ask Bob Dole about that sort of thing. He's gone on record for his belief that his close working relationship with Newt, and Newt coming out to campaign for him in '96 was a big factor in him losing it then.
