Observations on the 2012 Election

Friday David Corn broke the story in Mother Jones that Willard Romney may have lied on his financial disclosure statement. This is important because it means he either lied to the American people, which should be reason enough not to elect him, or he lied to the SEC, which is a felony. President Obama and his campaign ran with the story and Willard spent Saturday demanding an Obama apology in five different interviews. This itself is funny because Willard once said apologies are for losers, but the Obama 'apology' is even funnier in its own way.

The Obama campaign released this commercial late Saturday. I take it this as all the apologizing he is going to do.

"I'm Barack Obama and I approve this message."
