Mitt Romney demanded an apology from President Obama for his deputy campaign manager, Stephanie Cutter, dropping the “felony” comment over his name appearing on SEC documents for Bain Capital though he claimed he left in 1999. In other words, no apology forthcoming. Mitt Romney’s media blitz accomplished one thing, it showed us that he is weak and got to this place because there were no stellar Republicans seeking the presidency in this election cycle. Mitt Romney has also shown us that he isn’t up to the task of unseating the incumbent president. He literally begged his opponent to stop attacking him yesterday. Um, has he forgotten the negative campaigning he unleashed on Newt Gingrich during the primary season? As they say, karma is a bitch. Here is the response from the Obama campaign:

It should be noted that even Republicans are questioning why Mitt Romney refuses to open up his financial affairs to the American people.

Stop demanding an apology, release your tax returns.” Obama campaign spokeswoman Jennifer Psaki said Mitt Romney “spends a lot of time asking for apologies, but spends a lot of time attacking.”

The Obama campaign also released another ad, “Firms,” slamming Mitt Romney for his offshore accounts and outsourcing, while Romney can be heard in the background singing “America the Beautiful.” The ad is running in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The ad says,”In business, Mitt Romney’s firm shipped jobs to Mexico. And China,” the text of the ad says, showing footage of foreign countries as Romney sings. “As governor, Romney outsourced jobs to India:”
