Talking Points Memo: "Romney Camp Once Again Warns Of ‘Soviet’ Threat"'
A foreign policy adviser to Mitt Romney’s campaign warned against policies that would aid “the Soviet Union” Wednesday, making him at least the third person from Team Romney — including Romney himself — to refer to a country that hasn’t existed since 1991 in the course of attacking President Obama’s foreign policy.

HuffPost: "Mitt Romney: 'Many' Of Aurora Shooting Suspect's Weapons Were Illegal"

Think Progress: "Romney’s ‘We Did Build This’ Events Feature Businesses Built With Government Subsidies And Contracts"
Today, the Romney campaign is hosting an entire series of campaign events based on President Obama’s misinterpreted commentabout small businesses. While Obama’s full speech made a “no man is an island” argument, the Romney campaign has seized on the quote, “If you’ve got a business, you didn’t build that” as evidence of Obama’s disdain for small business owners.
Romney, ignoring the fact that he has echoed this same sentiment on multiple occasions, organized 24 “We Did Build This” events in the battleground states of Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Virginia, Ohio, Iowa, Florida, Missouri, North Carolina, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Nevada. At each event, local business owners are speaking about their self-sufficiency in running a business and how government is hindering their growth.
But, like the New Hampshire business owner showcased in Romney’s attack ad on the issue, many of these business owners have received significant support from the government, a ThinkProgress analysis finds.
