Quote of the day

Enter "Obamaloney," Romney's answer to "Romney-hood"

Both presidential candidates have coined silly terms for their opponents. Let the name calling begin:

Yesterday, Obama attacked Romney's tax plan during a campaign stop in Connecticut. "It’s like Robin Hood in reverse — it’s Romney-hood," the president quipped.

Conservatives were not amused, and Romney responded in kind.

“We’ve been watching the president say a lot of things about me and about my policies, and they’re just not right,” Romney told Fox News  in our quote of the day. “If I were to coin a term, it would be ‘Obamaloney.’ He’s serving up a dish which is, simply, in contradiction of the truth and it relates to everything from how I’m going to help the middle class to tax policy. He’s just simply saying things that are not accurate.”
