Mitt Romney chokes on Richard Mourdock's rape comment

1.  The confrontation that Iran has with the rest of the world today is reminiscent of the events back in the early 60's when the tiny nation of Cuba got in the middle of Russia and the USA and provoked a standoff between Khrushchev and JFK.   Let's see how this By times article recalls history as it compares to Iran today:

2.  Nobel Economist Joseph Stiglitz takes apart the RomRyan plan and excoriates them for the sham they are trying to pull.   What they are now saying is nothing like that which is embedded in the Ryan budget plan and the tax agenda that Mittley has espoused.  In a nutshell, this is not good for America:

3.  Amidst all of the rhetorical deception strewn about by the RomRyan Duo, there is a subliminal, and on occasion, overt reference to Barack Obama's skin color.  Personally, I find it very offensive and destructive, and it has no place in the campaign.  However, using all available nefarious angles, the Republicans shameful plan goes on without any compunction.  Character and integrity has become the overriding issue between the two candidates:

4.  The LDS Church has formally filed a copyright infringement against Wikileaks for inclusion of the LDS handbook.  The handbook deals with the administrative details on how the Mormons handle their operation, and not their theological beliefs:

5.  The NY Times endorses Obama in this editorial.   Making its case, it takes the key issues and presents the pros and cons of each candidate:

6.   Maureen Dowd talks about her sister and her funny take on things on why she is mad for Mad Man Romney:

7.  Frank Bruni takes a close look at Obama and wonders why he is not farther ahead at this time than he should be.  Much of it seems to be because of the clumsy campaigning, and missed opportunities.   These are things that he can address in his second term:


"Whenever I dwell for any length of time on my own shortcomings, they gradually begin to seem mild, harmless, rather engaging little things, not at all like the staring defects in other people's characters." 
       -- Margaret Halsey
"I shall never be ashamed of citing a bad author if the line is good." 
       -- Seneca
"The nice thing about egotists is that they don't talk about other people." 
       -- Lucille S. Harper
"Classical music is the kind we keep thinking will turn into a tune." 
       -- Kin Hubbard
