Every day President Obama reads and responds to letters from citizens. This illustrates his basic philosophy: people first. By contrast, for Mitt Romney, profit is the priority.

What is Pennsylvania Rep. Michael Fitzpatrick's score in TheMiddleClass.org Voter Guide? 0%. Zero. Nada. That'd be a 'no.' Zip. Nothing for the middle class. Negatory, good buddy.
Doctoring audio in an ad to fool voters? No problem, and certainly no consequences. Romney did it and got away with it, and then did it again, and got away with it again.

The upcoming presidential debate on foreign policy will undoubtedly feature warnings from Republican candidate Mitt Romney that defense spending cuts from the Obama administration will compromise the nation's ability to defend itself.
In tonight's foreign policy debate, Mitt Romney will say that the way to get jobs back from China is with more free trade and lower taxes. But China's Communist. It already has tougher trade restrictions and higher taxes than we do. How, exactly, will more tax cuts help us compete?
Americans haven't heard much at all from Joe the Plumber this election cycle. A shame. Without his rants against sharing the wealth, no one's bothering to debate how desperately America really needs to be sharing. And how desperate has our maldistribution of wealth become?
We've had four and a half hours of presidential and vice-presidential debates.
We've had a number of disturbing reports these last couple of weeks about employers instructing their workers to vote for Romney or risk losing their jobs.
Mitt Romney said a lot of "sketchy" things in Tuesday night's debate.
I am saddened to hear that progressive champion Sen. George McGovern is reported to be at the end of his days. He has lived a life nearly as large as his heart.
In the debate Mitt Romney heartily endorsed Affirmative Action, claiming he sought out "binders full of women" that he could put in high positions. And it turns out that even that was a lie. Sheesh.
Everyone's talking about Romney's "binder full of women" comment last night and it's clear that, once again, he lied. But I think it's worth taking a second look at it anyway:

On the campaign trail Romney says we shouldn't ship jobs to China and should "crack down" on China trade problems. But he refuses to help or even meet with the Sensata workers whose jobs are being shipped to China right now.
Uppdate -- See More Arrests At #Sensata Factory That Is Moving Jobs To China then come back for details.
Today there were six more arrests at the Sensata factory in Freeport, IL as people hold sit-ins and try to block trucks moving equipment out for shipment to China. What Is Sensata?
Mitt Romney's bullet-point, detail-free, policy-free economic "plan" contains a section on cutting the deficit. What is Romney's approach? The Deficit "Crisis" Any discussion of the deficit "crisis" should start with this:
Campaigning alongside Pat Robertson today, Mitt Romney implied that President Obama plans to "take God off our coins."
After all the fact-checkers and many in the media denounce the Romney campaign's blatant fabrication that Obama is "gutting" the welfare work requirement, Romney/Ryan doubled down, going full-on Angry White Male.
Republicans said Obama "tripled the deficit" but they were talking about Bush's last budget year.
The Republican Party seems to have become a party of "say what you need to say to get in the door." And what happens when they do get in that door? The Green Cheese Campaign "Obama is mining green cheese on the moon and putting it in school lunch milk."
Now Mitt Romney is saying that President Obama gave us ":four straight trillion-dollar deficits." Since we are in Obama's third budget year, a different President must have brought us trillion-dollar deficits. Was it Bill Clinton? The Romney Claim
A new Romney ad says President Obama "used his health care plan to declare war on religion, forcing religious institutions to go against their faith." Apparently the Romney campaign can't find any criticisms of President Obama that are actually true. The Ad
The Romney campaign has turned to a strategy of swamping the public with flat-out, blatant lies, one after another, again and again, endlessly and lavishly repeated.
Did President Obama tell business owners they didn't build their businesses. That's what the entire right-wing media machine is saying he said. What did he really say? Drudge Report headline: "Obama Goes Wild: 'If you've got a business, you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen'..."
The Romney campaign is fabricating things again and the right's media machine is again echoing the lie to the public.
Now Mitt Romney is using another selectively edited video to make it sound like President Obama is a communist who wants to seize all the wealth of the rich and hand it out to ... negroes and communist party members?
Mitt "I-know-you-are-but-what-am-I" Romney has accused President President Obama of running a "campaign of division and anger and hate." WTF?
A new Romney ad claims ... OK, wow, just watch the ad:
