The Obama campaign is jumping on what it calls an "awkward moment" from Sunday night's 60 Minutes joint interview of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.Trying to help explain why the richest Americans wouldn't pay a lower rate under Romney's plan, Ryan said: What we're saying is take away the tax shelters that are uniquely enjoyed by people in the top tax brackets so they can't shelter as much money from taxation, should lower tax rates for everybody to make America more competitive.(Watch the moment above.)That's not a proposal that Romney appears to have mentioned before. read more

But I’m going to release the same amount of years that Governor Romney has.”And that would be how many, Schieffer asked?“Two. I’m going to be releasing two, which is what he’s releasing. read more

Five things you need to know about Paul Ryan

08/11/12 09:22AM

In picking Rep. Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney has taken a risk. The Wisconsin lawmaker has emerged in recent years as the ideological standard-bearer for his party, and in particular for its radical push to shrink the size of government. "To envisage what Republicans would do if they win in November, the person to understand is not necessarily Romney, who has been a policy cipher all his public life," Ryan Lizza wrote in The New Yorker  last week. read more

The breakout Olympic stars

08/09/12 01:00PM

I was thinking about doing a "breakout stars" post for the Olympics, listing those that I felt have exploded on to the scene. And, as I flipped through the list of characters - looking at early crop of gold medalists - it hit me: Women. Women are the breakout stars. 23 of the 34 U.S. gold medals currently hang around the neck of female athletes and teams. They've been the face of the Olympics: Gabby, Missy, Jordan, Kerri & Misty-Mae... I'm not taking anything away from the fellas, Phelps, Lochte, Aries Merritt, the Bryan brothers - they've been fantastic. read more
