Denver Post Editorial- Romney outsourcing the truth on Jeeps

Nothing smells like desperation more than the falsehoods and half-truths coming out of the Romney campaign about Chrysler purportedly moving Jeep manufacturing jobs to China.

The episode has been shameful.

During a rally in Ohio, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney said he had read that Jeep "is thinking of moving all production to China."

The truth is that Jeep executives are considering a plant in China to make Jeeps to sell in China. Local jobs will remain local.

But why let the facts get in the way when you can exploit a poorly written news story for political gain in a must-win state? After all, such a claim could be a potent rejoinder to President Obama, who has been making inroads with Ohioans on the strength of his move to bail out the auto industry during the depths of the economic downturn.

White voter registration in Ga. dips below 60 percent

For the first time, white voters in Georgia will make up less than 60 percent of all “active” registered voters in the state, according to statistics just released by Secretary of State Brian Kemp.

White voter registration, which stood at 63 percent in 2008, has dropped to 59 percent of the 5.3 million signed up to cast ballots in this year’s presidential contest. African-American registration stands at 30 percent, just as it did in 2008.

The difference comes from the growing pool of voters who decline to identify themselves by race, or describe themselves as something other than white, black, Asian-Pacific, Hispanic-Latino, or Native American. That group grew from 3.6 percent in 2008 to 8 percent today.

The decline of the white vote in Georgia has been slow but steady. In January 2001, whites made up 72 percent of registered voters; in January 2007, they were 67 percent. Blacks in 2001 made up 26 percent of the electorate, and 27 percent in 2007.

Coolest Pumpkin Carvings



Need some inspiration for carving your Halloween pumpkin? Look no further. Last year we featured some amazing feats of Halloween pumpkin carving, and this year the field is just as impressive. And what could be scarier than seven minutes of terror and Dragons? This year many carvers went with a Mars Science Laboratory theme, as did Will Gater, who brandished his carving knife in this outstanding re-creation of Curiosity being lowered by the Skycrane.
