Olivier Knox's look at the Romney campaign's new line of attack made it into said campaign's news round-up. I don't think anyone read to the end.

"So something that I'd really like to concentrate on in my second term," the president continued, "is being in a much more constant conversation with the American people so that they can put pressure on Congress to help move some of these issues forward."
Romney painted the comment not as a testament to grass-roots activism, but as a betrayal of the "Hope and Change" vision and "Yes We Can" slogan from Obama's history-making 2008 run for the White House.
