I like how the media is trying to convince people that it's not worth voting
for anyone but Romney in the Republican race.


The U.S. presidential race is down to two clear choices now that Rick Santorum has suspended his tenacious-but-shoestring GOP campaign and Mitt Romney has essentially secured the party's nomination.
A charismatic Democratic president,
vulnerable to any sign that the tentative economic upswing might stall,
faces off against a multimillionaire who has struggled to connect with
his own party's conservatives but hopes his business background will
convince voters he can put the country on a path to sturdier recovery.

Now Romney and President Barack Obama
are free to focus on confronting each other, something they had already
been increasingly doing in recent weeks as the former Massachusetts
governor gradually emerged as his party's likely nominee.

Neither has hesitated to draw sharp contrasts with the other.

Obama, whose re-election prospects have been
buoyed by the divisive state-by-state Republican primary race, said the
choice facing voters this November was one of the starkest in recent
history.

Traveling to Florida, Obama opened a new
push to revamp the U.S. tax law under which wealthy investors often pay
taxes at a lower rate than middle-class wage-earner. The proposal stands
little chance of passing in Congress but serves as a clear general
election contrast with Romney.

"We've got to choose which direction we want
this country to go," Obama told a boisterous audience of students at
Florida Atlantic University.

"Do we want to keep giving tax breaks to
folks like me who don't need them?" he added, referring to his own
personal wealth, estimated at between $1.8 million and nearly $12
million.

Obama said Democrats would ensure the rich
pay their fair share, while focusing on investments in education,
science and research and caring for the most vulnerable. By contrast, he
said, Republicans would dismantle education and clean energy programs
so they can give still more tax breaks to the rich.

Obama did not mention Romney by name, but
the economic fairness message was the theme of his day -- and aimed
squarely at the former governor, who once headed a private equity firm
and is worth up to $250 million.

The renewed focus on the economy suits
Romney, whose conservative credentials are suspect among the Republican
base because of his past moderate stances on social issues such as
abortion -- polarizing topics that were pushed to the forefront by
Santorum's presence.

While Santorum was a favorite of the most
conservative Republican voters, Romney, with his much better organized
and well-financed campaign, had accumulated a virtually insurmountable
lead in delegates to the party's national convention in August.

"We were raising issues that, well, frankly,
a lot of people didn't want to have raised," Santorum said as he
announced his decision in his home state of Pennsylvania, two weeks
before the Republican primary vote there.

The former Pennsylvania senator pointedly
made no mention or endorsement of Romney, whom he had derided as an
unworthy standard-bearer for the Republicans.

Romney congratulated Santorum on his campaign, calling him an "able and worthy competitor."

Romney's campaign turned its attention to
Obama's support for the so-called "Buffet rule", named after billionaire
investor Warren Buffett, who famously said it was wrong for him to be
paying a lower tax rate than that levied on his secretary.

Romney's team contends Obama's plan would
raise taxes on small businesses, harming an engine of growth and job
creation at a time when the economy needs it the most.

Obama is the "first president in history to
openly campaign for re-election on a platform of higher taxes," Romney
campaign spokeswoman Gail Gitcho said.

Their information is correct. It's just got a ridiculous pro Romney spin on it.

That would make it biased and more incorrect that correct. It's not supposed to open to interpretation. Facts are facts Smile

More crap. No chance in hell Romney wins if the election was today. His only chance will be a strong running mate.

I don't think it has to be Ron Paul. But it better not be a Palin.

Removing a news source because you don't identify with them is as silly as counting on only one news source. I read lots of news man. Not just Fox. If I stop reading Fox then I'll miss out on lots of things that would appear negative towards liberals. Other outlets are just as selective about their articles as Fox is. Unless by 'shit' you are also referring to MSNBC, NYTimes, LA Times, Huff Post, Wash Post, Yahoo, HLN, etc, etc.
