    Here’s a new ad from the Mitt Romney campaign, reminding voters that four years ago, then-Sen. Barack Obama spoke out against using “stale tactics to scare voters.”

    You are a disgrace to Paul. No real Paul supporter would ever support a hack like Willard,..

    Those who have facts on their side, argue the facts
    Those who have the law on their side, argue the law
    Those who have history on their side, argue history.
    Those who have nothing on their side, assassinate their opponent's character.

    Seems to me that facts, law and history in Obama's own words invalidate his criticism of Romney leaving him with nothing but smear tactics and character assassination.

    And the details of this emotional hyperbole are where? Was it during Romney's tenure at Bain? What was the consequences of not shutting down that plant?

    Well, 'support' is a very strong word.

    In 1989, Romney led Bain Capital's purchase of Damon Corp., a medical testing company, and took a seat on the Board of Directors to better manage it. During Romney's four years, Bain tripled its investment, and Romney personally made $473,000 -- while Damon plumped its profits with Medicare fraud (running thousands of medical tests doctors didn't want, and billing Medicare for them). The company pled guilty to crimes committed during his tenure and paid a record fine of $119 million. Company President Joseph Isola pleaded no contest to fraud, and a vice president was also convicted.

    Romney claims he "uncovered" the fraudulent claims and "took corrective action," but court records show that he did not notify prosecutors or stop the fraudulent billing. He just asked company lawyers what changes they could make to avoid prosecution, after the feds' LABSCAM prosecution targeted a different medical testing firm. The cheating continued, prosecutors say, until the day Bain sold the company to Corning. Furthermore, Damon Corp. was required to list in various SEC filings any significant legal risks it faced. Romney made no mention of the fraud he "uncovered," even though it led to a $119 million fine, the largest in history. Damon Corp. is another Bain acquisition that later went bankrupt, killing over a thousand jobs -- but not before Bain made $7.4 million in profit.

    Hyperbole and insinuation are long since tactics of politics.
