These are the actions of either a man who is desperate because he knows he's going to lose, or is so certain they can rig the votes on his behalf that he can say whatever demented thing that pops into his head:
Mitt Romney suggested Saturday in Virginia Beach that President Obama wants to remove God from coins, provoking a fierce retort from the president's campaign.
"I will not take God out of our platform," the Republican nominee said after reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. "I will not take God off our coins, and I will not take God out of my heart."
Would that be the same God that told you to fire all those people when you worked at Bain, Mitt?
In response, Obama spokeswoman Lis Smith called the insinsuation false and an act of desperation.
"It’s disappointing to see Mitt Romney try to throw a Hail Mary by launching extreme and untrue attacks against the President and associating with some of the most strident and divisive voices in the Republican Party, including Rep. Steve King and Pat Robertson," she said in a statement. "This isn’t a recipe for making America stronger, it’s a recipe for division and taking us backward."
