The Romney campaign has released an ad explaining some of the things that he’d do on his first day as President:

Poll: 51% Trust Romney On Economic Issues, 39% Trust Obama


This is why Obama is suddenly attacking Romney on his time at Bain:

A new national telephone survey finds that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters trust Romney more than Obama when it comes the economy, while 39% trust the president more. Ten percent (10%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Barnard Junior: Obama “Stereotyped, Simplified, and Used” Us.


Looks like Obama’s commencement address didn’t go over well with at least one Barnard student, Ayelet Pearl:

The oppressive and suffocating categorization of women as this uniformly thinking block is even more rampant at a women’s liberal arts college in New York City, where many women do hold similar political viewpoints. Barnard President Debora Spar, in an interview on MSNBC, boldly told the show’s hostess that “they’re [Barnard students] all huge fans [of Obama].”  Is that true? Can the president of Barnard College say, in good faith, that every single one of her students is a fan of President Barack Obama? Are we that unindividual? Or are we just a liberal student body, and, as women, a key component of the Democratic vote? Too often, the assumed answer is yes.

Poll: 2 Out Of 3 Independents Believe Obama’s Gay Marriage Stance Prompted By Politics (UPDATED)


It’s not often that I link to the New York Times, and even rarer that I link to one of their polls, but this one was just too good to pass up.

Sixty-seven percent of those surveyed by The New York Times and CBS News since the announcement said they thought that Mr. Obama had made it “mostly for political reasons,” while 24 percent said it was “mostly because he thinks it is right.” Independents were more likely to attribute it to politics, with nearly half of Democrats agreeing.

African-American Pastors Condemning Obama’s Gay Marriage Stance


This is probably something he didn’t expect and didn’t want, but he’s stuck with it now.

When Obama announced that his position on same-sex marriage had evolved, it outraged some African-American pastors like Pastor and Del. Emmett Burns.

“He has said to his base, African-Americans, ‘I am going against your beliefs and your thoughts,’” Burns said.

Donate To Romney, Get Your Name Published By Obama


The threat of Obama’s Enemies List has been fulfilled:

Frank VanderSloot is the CEO of Melaleuca Inc. The 63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho. Last August, Mr. VanderSloot gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Mitt Romney.

Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, “Keeping GOP Honest,” took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled “Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney’s donors,” the post accused the eight of being “wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records.” Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being “litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement.”
