Nixon’s Surprise Visit from Elvis

Incidentally, the photo from this impromptu meeting on December 21, 1970, is among the most requested from the National Archives.  The Elvis-Nixon meeting draws more inquiries than the Bill of Rights and the Constitution.
Birthday cheers for Elvis and Nixon!

Reuters:

As Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney faces a withering attack over outsourcing and layoffs by his former firm, Bain Capital, employees at a Bain-owned company are appealing to Romney to stop their jobs being shipped overseas….

The plant’s employees are calling on Romney to use his influence with former Bain colleagues to keep the plant open.

The workers signed a petition asking him to help, and the Freeport City Council passed a motion on Monday urging the candidate to step in to save the jobs….

The first batch of layoff notices went out last week.

Mitt Romney’s Own 2002 Testimony Undermines Bain Departure Claim

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney’s repeated claim that he played no part in executive decision-making related to Bain Capital after 1999 is false, according to Romney’s own testimony in June 2002, in which he admitted to sitting on the board of the LifeLike Co., a dollmaker that was a Bain investment during the period.

Romney has consistently insisted that he was too busy organizing the 2002 Winter Olympics to take part in Bain business between 1999 and that event. But in the testimony, which was provided to The Huffington Post, Romney noted that he regularly traveled back to Massachusetts. “[T]here were a number of social trips and business trips that brought me back to Massachusetts, board meetings, Thanksgiving and so forth,” he said.

Mitt Romney Tax Returns Are True Target Of Obama Campaign Attacks

Romney, they said, may have lied to federal regulators about when he stopped working for Bain. But, even if he did tell the truth, they argued, he remained legally responsible for decisions made at the firm after he reportedly left. The attacks took some effort to untangle. But the end game of the strategy is clear: it allows the Obama campaign to renew calls that the Republican presidential nominee release his tax returns.

“This could all be cleared up if they didn’t have anything to hide, like releasing their tax returns, or by releasing Mitt Romney’s tax returns, rather,” said Stephanie Cutter, Obama’s deputy campaign manager.

Mitt Romney Bain Mess Shows Stonewalling Consequences

WASHINGTON — It takes perverse talent to turn a two-day mini-story into a major three-week distraction. But that is precisely what Mitt Romney’s campaign has done with a June 21 story in the Washington Post. As a result, they’re losing valuable media time playing defense when they should be using every waking second and news cycle to remind voters about how crappy the economy is, and why President Barack Obama should be blamed for it.

Harry Reid Mocks Mitt Romney’s Low Tax Bill, Offshore Accounts 

“The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office reported this week that in 2009 rates fell to their lowest level in more than 30 years,” said Reid (D-Nev.) in a Senate floor speech. “Much of that decline is thanks to President Obama, who has consistently fought to lower taxes for middle-class families over the last three and a half years,” he said.

The CBO concluded the low taxes likely extended into 2010 and 2011, although full data were unavailable.

“The average tax rate in this country fell to the lowest rate since 1979 –- 17.4 percent,” said Reid, adding, “Of course, that’s still a higher rate than Mitt Romney pays.”

Romney Loses Voter Confidence On Economy, Poll Shows

Voter confidence in Mitt Romney’s ability to fix the economy has slipped over the last month, according toa Pew Research Center poll released Thursday, erasing his edge over President Barack Obama.

Forty-eight percent of voters said Obama would do a better job improving economic conditions, compared to 42 percent for Romney. That’s a reversal from last month, when polling showed Romney leading Obama 49 percent to 41 percent.

The New York Times:

The ruling was a loss for Mitt Romney, who was left fumbling for a cogent response, and will leave him even more vulnerable to attempts by Mr. Obama to remind Americans that, when he was governor of Massachusetts, he championed a health care reform that looks very much like Mr. Obama’s law. Mr. Romney’s argument, that his reform was right for one state but Washington does not have the power to impose it on the other 49, was refuted by the Supreme Court ruling.
From: A Moderate Ruling With Risks Ahead

The Wall Street Journal:

The presumptive GOP nominee may have thought he could run solely on the economy, but now ObamaCare must be central to his campaign. He is at a disadvantage.
