From The Hill newspaper:

The purpose of the Democratic blitz is clear: With Romney and the Republicans scrambling to defend Romney’s tax history and undo the damage from Rep. Todd Akin’s (R-Mo.) recent comments on rape and abortion, Obama and the Democrats don’t want to give the GOP a weeklong opening to shift the discussion back to jobs and the economyObama’s chief vulnerability heading into November’s elections. [emphasis added]

42 months of 8%+ unemployment. New jobless claims jumped again. Worst recovery ever. $16 trillion in debt, and plans to add $1 trillion every year for the next four years. Medicare goes broke in 2016. New workers will never get back what they’re paying into Social Security as of this year.

And the Democrat’s platform is “the war on women?”

Anyone—pro-life OR pro-choice—who casts their vote based on the abortion issue in this election is an idiot. And that’s just what Team Obama and their media allies are trying to get you to do.

UPDATE: If you think the Akin story is ugly, look at this:

Natural Truth of the Day

For several months now, whenever the topic of enrollment in the Affordable Care Act came up, I've been saying that it was too soon to tell its ultimate effects. We don't know how many people have paid for their new insurance policies, or how many of those who bought policies were previously uninsured. For that, I said, we will have to wait for Census Bureau data, which offer the best assessment of the insurance status of the whole population... I stand corrected: These data won't be available at all. Ever.-- Megan McArdle, Bloomberg View.
