Obama won a major legal victory just ahead of a tight election, but the ruling also could energize Romney and Republicans, whose fierce opposition to the health law propelled the issue to the high court.
Former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney would have a whopping, 22-point lead over the next-best theoretical GOP challenger in New Hampshire's 2016 Republican primary, according to a new poll from WMUR.

I watched the entire debate between President Obama and Mitt Romney tonight. As an independent voter, I have to say this was not even close.
Romney won the debate easily. He was confident, poised, respectful of Obama, and was willing to look at the president instead of the floor.
In contrast, president Obama kept looking down, kept shaking his head, and posture-wise seemed as if he was ashamed to be on the stage with Romney.
Style Over Substance
Does Mitt Romney really "Know Better" than the silly things he has said on the campaign trail lately? I ask the question because that subject came up twice recently, once in Time Magazine, and once in the Financial Times.

On the basis of Mitt Romney's latest appeal to the far right, including a vow to "teach Iranians the meaning of American resolve", and also on Romney's pledge to start a trade war with China, I am now willing to state that I would rather see president Obama reelected than Mitt Romney be elected.
I do not say this lightly. It will likely cost me readership. So be it. Consequences be dammed, I speak my mind.
No Hope Elsewhere
