Does this mean the Obama campaign is lying?

Just caught his via Yahoo!:

Undeterred by independent fact-checkers that have debunked the thrust of their claims, the Obama campaign is redoubling attacks on Mitt Romney as an “outsourcer” in a new TV ad airing in eight battleground states.

The 30-second spot — titled “The Problem” — claims Romney condoned the Chinese “taking our jobs and taking a lot of our future.”

“He made a fortune letting it happen,” the narrator says, focusing on Bain Capital outsourcing to China, a country Romney has vowed to challenge as president.

It’s the latest in a steady drumbeat of negative attacks on Romney’s record as a corporate buyout specialist, alleging he profited off of deliberately bankrupting companies and sending jobs overseas.

What ever happened to hope and change?

Do hope the Romney campaign — or the presumptive Republican nominee’s SuperPAC defenders — fire back with ads wondering why the incumbent is running a relentlessly negative campaign, actively misrepresenting the Republican’s record.

Seems the only way Obama can win is by repeating repudiated attacks on his Republican rival.

The legacy media’s curious disinterest
in comparing Obama rhetoric as candidate to his record in office

You know ready are our friends in the legacy media to root around in Mitt Romney’s past and find how his present statements contradict things he has said in the past?  On Independence Day, Dan Riehl offered that Media Digging For Romney News Already Exceeds Obama Digging In 2008.

And bear in mind that it wasn’t until this year, four full years after Barack Obama’s locked up the Democratic presidential nomination that left-of-center pundit Ben Smith “counted 38 instances in which [Obama’s] biographer [David Maraniss] convincingly disputes significant elements of Obama’s own story of his life and his family history.”  Note one of Smith’s colleagues bothered to subject the Democrat’s autobiography to a a thoroughgoing analysis, choosing to take his narrative at face value.

Now comes word, via Instapundit, that “In 2004, Obama dismissed creation of 310,000 jobs under Bush.”  Yesterday, he hailed the creation of 80,000 jobs as a “step in the right direction.

Do wonder why the legacy media is not giving more play to Mr. Obama’s comments in 2004 — and contrasting them to his remarks about the most recent job figures.

The case against gay marriage

Rumor has it that retiring Massachusetts Rep. Barney Frank and his longtime partner James Ready are tying the knot this weekend.

(Via Dan Riehl.)

Maybe it we keep this hush-hush, we could avoid the public relations disaster this story represents for gay marriage advocates.

FROM THE COMMENTS:  Agreeing with me that “we need a sense of humour here”, Pop Art, like yours truly, is “not wishing ill on Bawney and his hubby. If anything, I hold out hope that with making this commitment (again), maybe he’ll become a slightly decent person in the process. But other than that I’m yawning and rolling my eyes slightly at this news.”

Yes, maybe marriage will make him a better person — as it has done for many men.

And when, pray tell, have Kofi Annan’s efforts succeeded?

Yahoo! led its news this morning (PST) with this headline: Kofi Annan: Syria efforts are failing:

Special U.N. envoy Kofi Annan acknowledged in an interview published Saturday that the international community’s efforts to find a political solution to the escalating violence in Syria have failed.

Does it strike others as odd or just par for the course that the United Nations would designate its failed former Secretary General as peace envoy — and that he would fail to resolve a stalemate between warring parties?

Seems almost emblematic of what Annan’s beloved U.N. has become.
