The Mitt Romney Campaign sent a message today to Barack Obama and his Campaign Team – they aren’t going to take it anymore without responding in kind. Mitt Romney has been repeatedly heckled by Leftist Obama minions at numerous campaign events. Today, when Obama’s Chief Adviser David Axelrod tried to attack Mitt Romney in a Boston Press Conference, he got shouted down by Mitt Romney supporters. As he spewed his talking points, the Romney supporters chanted “Solyndra” and “Where are the jobs?” Having failed in their Bain Capital attack, they are now turning to attacking Romney’s 4.7% unemployment rate (they prefer to say Massachusetts was 47th out of 50 in job creation. Of course, they had been worse under Democrats before Romney took over) while he served as Governor of Massachusetts! I kid you not. Even though Barack Obama has presided over an economy with more than 8% unemployment for 39 months – despite promising that unemployment would never even go past 8% if he got his nearly $1 Billion Stimulus boondoggle. Expect to see more of this as the Romney Campaign pushes back hard against the Obama attacks.

REDSTATE: The Romney Campaign also offered this comparison of Governor Romney’s record to that of President Obama:

Not just a bad decision or investment – “a serious conflict of interest on the part of the President. . “

Mitt Romney upped the ante today in attacking Barack Obama for his $500 Million+ giveaway of taxpayer money to the Solyndra “Green Energy” Company, that has already gone bankrupt.

To make his point, Romney actually went to the site of the Solyndra plant in California today where he pointedly said Solyndra represents, “a serious conflict of interest on the part of the president and his team.” He cited an independent report that said Obama had steered money to “family and friends” with the $535 million payoff to Solyndra.

Here is a new Republican National Committee (RNC) ad that keeps hammering Barack Obama for his taxpayer funded giveaways to so-called “Green Energy” Companies that had very little chance of success. All the warning signs were there with Solyndra, and others, but Obama spent your tax money (if you are one of the 50% who actually still pay taxes) anyway. Combined, Obama threw more than $6 Billion down the drain in this “investments.” He’s very generous – with someone else’s money.

At the unveiling ceremony of his official portrait at the White House today, former President George W. Bush got off some great one-liners!

Gov. Mitt Romney attended a fundraiser in California last night, where he picked up the official endorsement of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, among others. Rice has been mentioned as a possible Vice-Presidential running mate for Romney. A “pool report” from reporters at the event write the following about remarks made by Rice last night:

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE – Pool Report: . . . Remarks at length below:

Secretary Rice was warmly welcomed by the crowd.

Her remarks:

“It’s a delight to see so many friends…I’ve now been out of Washington for over three years…how much fun it is when you know you could be in Washington, but you’re here. My life has changed a lot. Now, I get up in the morning and I read the newspaper and I say…isn’t that interesting? “Because I’m no longer responsible for what’s in it.”

“We care about the future of this country, and the future of our world,’’ she said, and I’m “delighted to join so many friends here in supporting, and in my case, endorsing, Gov. Mitt Romney for President of the United States.”

“Today, more than ever, we need U.S. leadership to affirm that the future belongs to free markets and free peoples.” .

“To regain that leadership, we’ve got to first and foremost defend the country,’’ she said. After 911, the country was safe because “it was not because the terrorists weren’t trying, it was because of the vigilance…because men and women volunteer to defend us at the front lines of freedom, and we owe them our eternal gratitude.”

More Rice: “We have to defend the country, not just from strength and power, but from a sense of values of who we are,’’ she said. “Friends, who just want to know, that when the chips are down, we are going to be there for them….and that indeed we know the difference between friend and foe.”

More Rice:

“The POTUS has to understand that the American people have a view…and that our leadership can not be (reduced to) “the lowest common denominator postions.”

“The only thing the American people dislike more” than weak leadership, she said, “is no leadership at all.”

America’s leadership “is craved in the world, and Gov. Romney, you can bring it back,’’ she said to applause. . . . Read More

Here is video of former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld on “Hannity” last night, where he said “clearly,” Barack Obama is “demonstrating weakness” in his statements about the military history of the United States, and said he is part of the “blame America first crowd.”

Here is a video report by NBC’s Chuck Todd on new NBC/Marist Polls that show Mitt Romney and Barack Obama virtually tied in three key battleground states: Iowa, Colorado, and Nevada. The report mentions the polls briefly and also reports that Obama called Romney yesterday to congratulate him on securing the GOP Presidential Nomination.

I’ll work on getting all these state polls updated this morning as well as the Electoral Vote Projection Map. It’s been a very busy week and I’m behind! This is good news for Romney because these polls are “Registered Voter” polls, which typically tilt toward the Democrat. For him to be even with Obama in the “Registered Voter” polls means it’s actually probably better than that. We’ll see if that trend continues in other polls in the weeks ahead.

Here is video that aired on “Fox & Friends” this morning, put together by an associate producer. The video is a compilation of Barack Obama’s four years of claiming he will bring “Hope and Change.” It compares at multiple points Obama’s promise of “change” to the reality of his disastrous policies.

Very revealing.

Here is another new Mitt Romney web ad that focuses on how he stood strong with Ann Romney when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a number of years ago. The ad is called, “Soul Mate.”

Here is a great new Mitt Romney web ad that is called, “The Promise of America.” It basically has the feel of, “Just hold on America – better days are coming!” Just a few more months of the Obama Economy.

Here is video of former New Hampshire Gov. John Sununu on CNN this morning where he just destroyed Soledad O’Brien as she again and again asked questions about Donald Trump’s “birther” views. O’Brien was obviously speaking directly from the Obama Campaign’s talking points, and John Sununu called her out for doing so. Sununu told her she “ought to be embarrassed” for her obvious bias for Barack Obama and called “CNN” as an entity a “supporter” of Obama. Sununu told her it is clear the media does not want to focus on the major issues facing the nation, such as Obama’s job-killing policies. At one point, Sununu also raised the fact that President Obama has taken $1 million from Bill Maher, who has a “foul-mouth” toward women. Yet, for the media, that is no issue at all.

Here is a flashback to April 27, 2008, when then candidate for President Barack Obama told Fox News Sunday that Jeremiah Wright “is a legitimate political issue,” as his former pastor of more than 20 years. Yet, whenever anyone asks why Barack Obama was comfortable listening to Wright’s anti-American rants for so long, the issue is treated as illegitimate. Obama himself said it is a “legitimate issue.” It demonstrates, like so many Obama associations, that he is a radical in his thinking and ideology. That’s why the impression he gave many Americans with his “Hope and Change” rhetoric in 2008 has been turned into a far-Left, Big Government, Social Welfare State reality in how he has governed. That’s who he is.

You know the whole “Bain Capital” attack on Mitt Romney is going nowhere when Barack Obama’s own White House Press Secretary has this much trouble giving a coherent response. Jay Carney was trying to answer a question on how what Romney did with private equity is different from Obama’s successes/failures with investing taxpayer money in “Green Energy” companies.

Here is raw video of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair being interrupted by a heckler as he was trying to give testimony during an inquiry into media ethics. The man managed to get into the room via what was supposed to be a “secure corridor” and shouted that Blair is a “war criminal.” Once the man was wrestled away, Blair set the record straight after apologizes were made to him for the interruption.

Oh, the dangers of TOTUS. When you are such a great public Reader-in-Chief, you can’t be expected to actually think through what you are saying, can you? After all, that’s what it means to be a great public speaker nowadays.

Yesterday, President Obama angered the people of Poland and Polish-Americans by referring to a “Nazi Death Camp” as a “Polish Death Camp.” But remember in 2010 when Obama repeatedly read the word Navy “Corpsman” as “Corpse-man?”

H/T reader “Aquaviva” for reminding me about that.
