Obama, Romney and the Political Silence of Gun Control
After the sick massacre in Aurora, Colorado. Both presidential candidates are running away from the main issue of gun control. Dems and Republicans are afraid of The NRA.

Romney Campaign's Race-Baiting Strategy Could Have Dire Consequences for America
The GOP tried this last time. It didn’t work. Race trumps religion
Searching for a theme that would unify the base of the Republican Party, the Romney camp sought to find its footing in voter sentiment verified this week in a Washington Post/ABC News poll: Race-based reservations about Obama trump religion-based reservations about Romney. (It's not unlikely that the Romney campaign's internal polling revealed much the same information.) In short, the theme boiled down to this: remind those core voters that the stakes in this election include another four years with a black guy in the White House -- and you know what those people are like. http://bit.ly/LIpYTH
The Nation: Mitt Romney Mishandles The Tax Issue
Is Mitt really out of touch with us? The left and the right don't agree on much, but increasingly they agree on one thing: Mitt Romney is completely failing to address public concerns that he may have a shady personal and professional history of tax avoidance. (Romney refuses to release more than his returns from 2010 and 2011.) Liberals and conservatives have different reasons for taking this view. http://n.pr/PHU2Me
