President Obama hastily called his first press conference in quite a while in order to take political advantage of Todd Akin’s stupidity, which is apparently now responsible for the economic disaster that’s taken place these past few years. But in addition to that, Obama said nobody (in his administration) has accused Mitt Romney of being a felon:

Okay, they haven’t said Romney has committed a felonious act… just that he might have:

Mitt Romney either lied in federal filings that show he worked at Bain Capital through 2002 and could be guilty of a felony, or has lied to the American people in saying he left the company in 1999, the Obama campaign is arguing in light of news reports on the firm’s filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

“This is serious business,” said Bob Bauer, the Obama campaign’s counsel, in a conference call for reporters coming after the Boston Globe published a story Thursday that calls into question the timeline of Romney’s involvement of the firm that the Republican candidate has been promulgating for years.

Deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter laid out the issue as the Obama team sees it: “Either Mitt Romney, through his own words and his own signature, was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the SEC, which is a felony.”

“Or,” she said, “he was misrepresenting his position at Bain to the American people to avoid responsibility for some of the consequences of his investments,” including layoffs and the outsourcing of jobs.

Greasy Axelrod and Debbie Downer agree, and yet not a single person in the press corps followed up to call BS on Obama’s claim.

    I am just waiting fo the Obama campaign commercial to come out in which they have Mitt Romney telling business owners "you didn't build that", it seems like the next logical step in the imagenarium known as Obama's mind.

    With the way Egypt is going how long do you think it will be till Obama claims he was against the Arab Spring?

    In a normal world we'd assume you were being flippant? In O'Bizzaro World, it's anyone's guess!

    The way my Prog neighbors have been avoiding me, it's abundantly clear they realize those types of playground tactics ( while successful initially ) now not only get you -zero- traction, it opens wide the door to a Conservative carpet bombing campaign [from] which their survivability rate is effectively "0".

    So… the street gets it. This also exhibits their lack of stomach b/c Jarrett-Axlerod etc. aren't getting that feeback. The elite carry on as if progs still had the upper hand in exchanges.

    This is old news. I'm sure you've heard the latest – Mitt Romney encourages rape! If you don't believe me, tune in the network news, where they will all screech about the "firestorm" which has erupted in the "crucial battleground" state of Missouri because a GOP Representative let his inner Biden out for a stroll.

    If they want to talk about dishonesty, what about all those people who have accused Obama of being a good president?

    The progs/regregs have a stomach and it is churning more each day as the see the train wreck coming down the tracks at them. They are just wondering if they can get off the tracks before the train arrives.
