Nancy Cordes, CBS: As you know, your opponent recently accused you of waging a campaign filled with anger and hate. You told Entertainment Tonight that anyone who attends your rallies can see that they are not angry or hate-filled affairs. But in recent weeks, your campaign has suggested repeatedly - without proof - that Mr. Romney might be hiding something in his tax returns. They have suggested that Mr. Romney might be a felon for the way that he handed over power of Bain Capital. And your campaign and the White House have declined to condemn an ad by one of your top supporters that links Mr. Romney to a woman's death from cancer. Are you comfortable with the tone being set with your campaign? Have you asked them to change their tone when it comes to defining Mr. Romney?
President Obama: Well, first of all, I am not sure that all of those characterizations that you laid out there were accurate. For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon. And, I think that what is absolutely true is if you watch me on the campaign trail, here's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about how to put Americans back to work.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
” Mitt Romney either lied in federal filings that show he worked at Bain Capital through 2002 and could be guilty of a felony, or has lied to the American people in saying he left the company in 1999, the Obama campaign is arguing in light of news reports on the firms filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.”
Well Romney is being accused by an admitted felon. Remember the Choom wagon? The snow? and all the rest of the crap this C-sucker has admitted to?
Good work. Just put that up on my Twitter feed and on the website.
I didn’t accuse Romney.
And butter doesn’t melt in my mouth, either.
Hey, I wonder if a bunch of Democrat Underground posters will start DEMANDING Obama drop out of the race for saying something SO stupid...for making such an outrageous GAFFE.
Oh wait, that only happens to Republicans.
Yes and I am the Easter Bunny.
It’s twue, it’s twue.
The Obamadork/cretin/felon is a nobody.
And his campaign did accuse Romney of being a felon.
So, what’s the pwoblem??
nobody likes him
obama does this ALL the time. He attack someone then say he didn’t do it, and he was taken out of context
Who was that impostor? CBS News demands
CBS News president David Rhodes apologizes to President Obama
remember when obama attack mccain as an old fish and palin as a pig, then he returned and laughed at those who would think that
You cannot really “accuse” someone of being a felon (i.e., a person who’s been convicted of committing a felony). You are one or your are not. But the Obama campaign said Romney either committed a felony or was a liar — both bad, with no evidence.
"For example, nobody accused Mr. Romney of being a felon."
"And, I think that what is absolutely true is if you watch me on the campaign trail, here's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about how to put Americans back to work."
Redirection, with basic talking points.
The Romney campaign on Thursday had called on Obama’s campaign to apologize.
But the Obama campaign has not done so. Far from it, Obama in an interview with WJLA-TV said Friday that Romney needs to better explain his tenure at Bain.
“Ultimately Mr. Romney, I think, is going to have to answer those questions, because if he aspires to being president, one of the things you learn is, you are ultimately responsible for the conduct of your operations,” Obama said. “But again that’s probably a question that he’s going to have to answer and I think that’s a legitimate part of the campaign.”
By the way, I am noticing that much of the left wing media, Obama, and his campaign flacks almost always refer to Governor Romney as “Mr Romney”.
Hillary is smart enough not to get on a ticket with Obama and thereby have to vouch for his eligibility. Biden is such a brain dead ( there Ive touched a no-no. So what?) politician that he doesn’t have the smarts/caution to have avoided the entrapment of Obama and his enablers as to being a party to to the biggest hoax/fraud in USA history which surely will command some form of justice.
Romney is making a HUGE mistake by not making this an issue.
Three hundred Mexicans murdered two border guards murdered and no one is responsible.
Mitt Romney hasn't paid any taxes for 10 years... and if that doesn't make you a felon, what does?
Mitt Romney killed a woman... and that's not a felony?
If Mitt Romney signed that phony baloney SEC filing... that makes him a felon!
What about Reid, Pelosi and Cutter? Are they not... on your side in this election.
David, David, David-- Yes, but they are... nobody you in the Press Corp should listen to-- David, they are not... the people you should tie to me.
Reid, Pelosi and Cutter are not... people we should tie to you, Obi-Wan Obama.
As many time as I say it, it still mystifies me that... you cannot make this stuff up--
Walk it back Obama...Walk it back.
Your post..brings to mind that liberals always accuse others of that which they themselves are guilty....
I wish that were true. I have sisters who think he’s the best thing that happened to the United States. They refuse to listen to the truth. Examples: One believes the Republicans are trying to suppress the vote; others believe Republicans are trying to control contraceptives for women. No amount of explanation or telling them these are outright lies and nobama is the biggest liar of all will work—they refuse to listen.
Mac daddy lies so much he is unable to tell the difference anymore, but then again he could care less because it’s all about him.
