    Maybe all the news yesterday about Romney's flip-flopping on abortion and the controversy over the slain soldier's mother did some damage. Both items were prominently in the news and I thought it might weigh on the polling samples.

      ...and halperin is pushing it hard, but even the consistently concern trolling politico is ignoring it.  It's a confusing issue.

      It really exposes Romney as the slime that he is, particularly the response from the guy's friend who recalls the awkward encounter with Romney.  Unfortunately, I think the issue is off-limits for the Obama campaign to litigate so we're gonna have to depend on the media to bring it to light.

        it can't really be milked anymore. It was good for a day but with him agreeing to drop it, nothing more to be done really.

        A mother from the other seal that was killed is very pro-romney and is trashing the president in public.  I'd probably let this one go.

          It's best not to politicize issues like this, whoever you are. Romney made that mistake, hopefully, Obama wont.

            could pick up the ball for us. If not, we have plenty of other stuff to work with. It's best to leave it alone.
