  • RT @ThoughtnDesign: @abulsme What r the chances that this is an oversight? #
  • .@ThoughtnDesign Oversight? No. The statement today said it was specifically done to stay above the 13% Romney promised a few months ago. #
  • MT @ThoughtnDesign: @abulsme In my opinion totally misses the point. Actual rate is between 9 & 11, but he plays with the #s to make it 13. #
  • MT @fivethirtyeight: There’s actually not much sign that O’s lead is declining if you look at all 4 tracking polls. Just been in Gallup. #
  • Reading – Are Judges finally Standing up to Secretive Drone Assassinations? (Jack Searle) #
  • RT @fivethirtyeight: Possible, however, that Obama lead was declining, and now 47% is causing problems for Romney. #

  • RT @ThoughtnDesign: @abulsme Let’s see if he gets away with this. #
  • .@ThoughtnDesign Suspect this will result in a bit of a brush up as people discuss it this weekend… (Cont) #
  • .@ThoughtnDesign But then I suspect it will die down with issue mostly defused. Ds will look petty if keep harping on other years, details. #
  • .@ThoughtnDesign People get that he is rich & paid low tax rate. Knew that already. Absent bombshell of something unexpected, nothing new. #
