The Obama camp will say pretty much anything to distract from three and a half years of 8% unemployment. A Romney aid defended Mitt against accusations of complicity in the cancer death of the wife a laid off former employee, by reminding us of Romney Care. Even Obama doesn’t mention Obama Care. Needless to say, conservatives aren’t happy.
Dana Milbank reports that our first black, Pacific, gay, woman president elbowed aside a real woman (Jill Abramson, the first female executive editor of the NYT) to give the commencement address at Barnard. Meanwhile a NYT/CBS poll showed Romney ahead of Obama with women voters.
While the Supreme Court hears oral arguments over the Arizona immigration law, a Pew study says more Mexican immigrants are leaving the U.S. than entering.
Maybe I pick on Obama too much but, sheeez. After his NLRB shuts down a Boeing plant in South Carolina and the 5000 jobs that go with it, his Justice Department raids the Gibson Guitar company. Gibson guitars are made in the USA. The frets are made of imported rosewood which may be illegal to harvest in India. Under the Lacy Act of 1900 it would be illegal to violate another country’s law. Except India isn’t complaining. In fact if Gibson exported its manufacturing to India and imported the finished guitars here there would be no problem!
