"Update: We decided not to get that other house." – The Romney Family Christmas Newsletter

I wonder if Romney wouldn't mind creating those 12 million jobs anyway, like as a contractor or something.

An unnamed high-level Democratic advisor on the state of the race following the leaked video of Mitt Romney's fundraiser…
"I'll relax when Karl Rove wakes up one morning and realizes that Mitt Romney can't win the White House, and he needs to throw all his money at other races."
This is especially important since karl Rove is the gatekeeper of the One True Math.

Like a gaseous, floating turd, Missouri's Todd Akin refuses to sink in the polls. The latest numbers, courtesy of Public Policy Polling, have incumbent Democrat Claire McCaskill leading the legitimate rape theorist by just one point, 45-44%.
Missouri Republicans are especially ready to forgive and forget…
53% of voters say that they accept Akin's apology for his comments last week to 40% who do not. For most Missourians Akin's words weren't a permanent deal breaker. Although Democrats are not ready to forgive him, 77% of Republicans say they accept his apology to only 18% who do not…
Akin's favorability numbers are still poor with 33% of voters rating him favorably to 56% with a negative opinion. But that's up a net 11 points from our survey last Monday when it came down at 24/58.
There's a certainly disconnect between the state's electorate and national Republicans, who are concerned about Akin's impact on races in more moderate states and districts. Karl Rove, for one, would like to push Akin out of the race, and down a ravine…
On the final morning of the Republican National Convention, Karl Rove took the stage at the Tampa Club to provide an exclusive breakfast briefing to about 70 of the Republican party's highest-earning and most powerful donors…He also detailed plans for Senate and House races, and joked, "We should sink Todd Akin. If he's found mysteriously murdered, don't look for my whereabouts!"
It had better be an illegitimate murder attempt if there's any chance of it working.
