Romney/GOP Play Good Cop, Bad Cop

Last Days of Our Fund Drive

From Journalist Robert Parry: We are wrapping up our second-half fund drive at Consortiumnews.com and we are still about $16,000 short of our goal. There are several ways you can help to keep this 17-year-old Web site afloat.

The Source of Romney’s Lying

From the Archive: War with Iran is on the Nov. 6 ballot with President Obama on the verge of a peace deal and Mitt Romney favoring confrontation.

‘Moderate Mitt’: Neocon Trojan Horse

Exclusive: Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney did all he could in Monday’s debate to calm voters’ fears that he would revert to George W. Bush’s neocon foreign policy. But there was one telling slip-up when Romney signaled that his heart remains with the neocon plan to remake the Middle East, reports Robert Parry.

The October Surprise Mysteries

With hopes brightening that President Obama is close to a negotiated settlement of the Iran nuclear dispute, Mitt Romney’s campaign is eager to counter any positive news. The moment is reminiscent of past October Surprise moments, says Robert Parry in this article adapted from America’s Stolen Narrative.
