Obama, in Va., continues to go after Romney

Source: The Washington Post

President Obama kept up his tough critique of rival Mitt Romney during a rally in Northern Virginia on Friday, attacking his rival’s positions on health care and contraception in an appeal to women voters.

Obama used his appearance at George Mason University in Fairfax to hail the news that the economy added 114,000 jobs in September and the jobless rate had fallen to 7.8 percent, the lowest since the president took office. However, he added that more work needs to be done to ensure that unemployed Americans can find work.

As he did Thursday during speeches in Denver and Madison, Wis., Obama went on the offensive in the wake of his sluggish debate performance two days ago. He again mocked Romney’s comment, during their debate Wednesday in Denver, that he would eliminate federal funding to PBS even though he likes Big Bird.

“When he was asked what he’d actually do to cut spending and reduce the deficit, his big example is to go after public television,” Obama said. “So, for all you moms and kids out there, don’t worry — someone is finally getting tough on Big Bird. Rounding him up. Elmo has got to watch out, too. Governor Romney plans to let Wall Street run wild again, but he’s going to bring down the hammer on ‘Sesame Street.’ It makes perfect sense.”

George Mason University? The home of the libertarian Mercatus Center and right-wing economists like Walter E. Williams?
