    Union Endorses Tea Party Favorite Joe Walsh by William Bigelow 4 Nov 2012 20 post a comment Friday, in a shocking move, Local 150, an AFL-CIO member and the largest local in the 8th congressional district of Illinois, endorsed Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, a Tea Party favorite, for reelection to Congress. The union had endorsed Barack Obama for President, but favored Walsh over his Democratic opponent, Tammy Duckworth. Walsh is also endorsed by the Illinois Chamber of Commerce and the taxpayer watchdog's group, the National Taxpayers Union, which makes for an amazing bipartisan trifecta.

    Mitt Romney picked up the endorsement of yet another chief executive officer of a major U.S. companyand one who is on President Obamas Council on Jobs and Competitiveness. The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday that Intel chief executive officer Paul Otellini has endorsed the Republican nominee. Despite his presence on the presidents job council, however, Ortellini has criticized the administration in the past pretty strongly, as noted by Human Events. In 2010, the Intel CEO blasted Democrats in Washington at an Aspen Forum event: Otellini singled out the political state of affairs in Democrat-dominated Washington, saying: I think this group...

    Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter dismissed the Des Moines Register endorsement of Mitt Romney, saying it was not based at all in reality. They endorsed Mitt Romney in the primary, so this was not much of a surprise, said Cutter on ABCs This Week, referring to the influential swing-state papers backing of the GOP candidate. It was a little surprising to read that editorial, because it didn't seem to be based at all in reality, not just in the president's record, but in Mitt Romney's record, Cutter added. It says that he'd reach across the aisle, which he'd do...

    The tone of the 2012 campaign might best be captured by the need to begin with an emphasis on what the Republican candidate will not do. Mitt Romney will not raise taxes on the middle class. He will not destroy Medicare. And he will not lie to the American people every time he opens his mouth. Political campaigns exaggerate grossly, play loose with the facts and cast the opposition in the worst light imaginable. Yet it is difficult to recall a campaign less truthful than President Obama's in 2012. Its foundation rests on deeply misleading assertions about Romney, a strategy...
