Politico: since we know everything about Obama, how ’bout we vet this random guy in a Romney ad?; Update: New 2012 Politico logo


Thank goodness Politico’s Maggie Haberman is digging deep into the past of some unemployed guy in a Romney campaign video. It’s not like there are actual candidates to vet.

Records: Iowa man in Romney video did jail time for assault of a officer. http://t.co/ja30aFXx

Jason Clausen, a Mason City, Iowa, man featured in Mitt Romney’s new video featuring unemployed people has a lengthy rap sheet and served ten days in jail for “assault on a peace officer,” public records show.

Drew M. and others highlighted the lapdog media’s double standard:

.@maggiepolitico Did you decide on your own to vet Clausen or are you just running Obama oppo research as your own?

It's funny how Team Romney releases an ad in the morning and by 5:40pm @maggiepolitico has the guys rap sheet.

.@DrewMTips But she totally missed the "employed because of Obama" guy who had been working since 06. @maggiepolitico

I wonder if @maggiepolitico has done research into everyone in every Obama ad or if it's just Romney ads that get her attention.

Ok conservative twitterverse- @maggiepolitico has shown us the rules. EVERYONE in every Obama ad gets vetted. #GameOn

Somewhere in America a person is thinking about voting for Mitt Romney. @maggiepolitico begins vetting them.

@maggiepolitico So you're going to do a background check on every person in Barack Obama's ads, right? Just to be consistent. #LapDogMedia
