George Will, in response to a question from host George Stephanopoulos, explains why racism isn't the reason that Obama may lose reelection.

The confederacy hypothesis is those people somehow, for some reason, in the last four years, somehow became racist.

Is President Obama pregnant? The Governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, seems to think so...

Well, I think if you look at the mess that President Obama inherited, and I mean losing 800,000 jobs a month, month after month after month, the first few months of his pregnancy...

There's nothing false in this Romney ad, but people are inclined to be confused by the statement about Jeep building cars in China.

We talked earlier about Mitt Romney getting caught repeating a blatant untruth last week -- he falsely claimed Jeep may be moving "all production to China" -- then in an astounding display of chutzpah, turning that falsehood into a television ad.

The president has issued his own ad.

Newt Gingrich doesn't buy all the talk about a razor thin finish to the presidential race - like the popular vote, electoral college split some are fantasizing about. Newt quotes a political axiom about the last week of an election from Democratic operative James Carville to make his point.

You never get, if you're the incumbent, you never get a break - 'cause they had four years to decide they're for ya, and they ain't doin' it the last week.

Mild-mannered NY Times 'conservative' David Brooks doesn't generally create arguments in his national TV appearances - he's a thoughtful guy! But EJ Dionne couldn't stand Brooks' attack on the president on the issue of trust.

When he goes off the record with the Des Moines Register last week, he gives out a second term agenda that is nothing like what he's been giving out on the trail...

Notice the sour face from Rachel Maddow when they cut to the wide shot.

George Will says the reason the presidential race has been drifting in Mitt Romney's direction is that the Obama message on women is condescending, so those votes have been shifting back toward the GOP.

There has been a big change. It's not a particular state, it's a change in Romney's gain among women. That, I think, represents a huge recoil... against the condescension of the Obama campaign, which says don't you trouble your pretty little heads about about men's issues like unemployment... worry about contraception...

This is so easy, and so powerful, I don't understand why more Republicans don't have this Newt Gingrich abortion argument ready to go.

The radical on abortion is Barack Obama, who as a state senator voted three times in favor of allowing doctors to kill babies in the eighth or ninth month...

While the media has made it sound like Democrats are dominating early voting in Ohio, Karl Rove says that's not accurate.

At this point, polls are less important than the actual early voting numbers... In Ohio, 109,000 fewer Democrats applied for an absentee ballot... than four years ago... four thousand more Republicans than four years ago already...

Here's what one former campaign operative says about the Ohio numbers in a Politico column.

Truth is, nobody knows what will happen on Election Day. But here is what we do know: 220,000 fewer Democrats have voted early in Ohio compared with 2008. And 30,000 more Republicans have cast their ballots compared with four years ago. That is a 250,000-vote net increase for a state Obama won by 260,000 votes in 2008.

Not sure why Rove's numbers are so different from those offered by Adrian Gray, but Rove was talking about requests for ballots and Gray is talking actual votes.
