Coming up: VP Biden warns Americans on the dangerous “Romney Economics,” the GOP’S never ending (via policy) WAR on Women, and Obama Biden Campaign Spokesperson Stephanie Cutter calls out (in REAL RAW RIGHT NOW… form) Karl Rove’s “BS!”

“At a campaign stop in Youngstown, Ohio, May 16, 2012, Vice President Joe Biden lit into Republicans and their presumed presidential nominee Willard Romney for what he described as a failure to understand the plight of the middle class.”
“I resent when they talk about families like mine that I grew up in. I resent the fact that they think we’re talking about envy: it’s job envy, it’s wealthy envy; that we don’t dream,” an impassioned Biden told a crowd of manufacturing workers.
“My mother believed and my father believed that if I wanted to be president of the United States, that I could be, I could be vice president! My mother and father believed that if my brother or sister wanted to be a millionaire, they could be a millionaire! My mother and father dreamed as much as any rich guy dreams!
“They don’t get us! They don’t get who we are!” he yelled before the crowd, drawing loud applause.
Biden was referring broadly to Republican criticism of the administration’s push for higher taxes on wealthier Americans and expanded investment in federal programs aimed at boosting low- to middle-income families.”

“Stephanie Cutter: Get the facts on Karl Rove’s BS”
“Stephanie Cutter shares the facts against the latest ad put out by Karl Rove and his Super PAC: Crossroads.”
“Hi, I’m Stephanie Cutter, Deputy Campaign Manager at Obama for America.
Well, here we are again. Karl Rove’s group, Crossroads, is spending $25 million from secret donors to tear down the president in a new ad out today.
Time to tear this thing apart.
First up — the attack ad says the president has not helped people who face foreclosure. That is flat out wrong.
Because of President Obama’s policies and the efforts he set in motion, over 5.9 million homeowners were able to modify their mortgages, avoid foreclosure, and stay in their homes. And the president is fighting to get Congress to go further — to let responsible homeowners who pay their mortgages on time to refinance and save on their monthly payments, even if they are underwater. The president is doing this because he believes homeownership is critical to helping middle class families build for their future.
And don’t forget: Mitt Romney’s plan on this? Well I’ll just let him speak for himself:
ROMNEY: ‘Don’t try and stop the foreclosure process, let it run its course and hit the bottom.’
I’d like to say that’s unbelievable, but with Mitt Romney, it’s really not.
Second, the ad says the president broke a promise to cut taxes on middle class Americans. They’re wrong again. President Obama has cut taxes for all working Americans — in fact tax levels are nearly the lowest they’ve been since the 1950s. So, when Karl Rove says the president broke his promise on middle class tax cuts, he’s not telling you the truth.
But, If Mitt Romney wants to have this argument, we are happy to have it. Because when he ran for governor of Massachusetts, he promised to cut taxes too. But unlike the President, he actually did break that promise — he hiked taxes and fees by $750 million per year on Massachusetts families and Massachusetts small businesses.
Third, the ads talks about health care. And you’ll like this one because we’ve heard it before. It says that you won’t be able to keep the insurance plan that you have. Now that’s just flat out wrong. If you like your plan if you want to keep it — you can. In fact, the president made that plan stronger.
You know what Mitt Romney says about Obamacare?
ROMNEY: ‘If I’m President, I will repeal Obamacare and I’ll kill it dead on it’s first day.’
‘Kill it dead’ Affordable coverage? Gone. Protections against insurance companies? Gone. Kids with preexisting conditions getting coverage? Not anymore. Not under Mitt Romney.
Fourth up is an attack on the president’s plan to cut the deficit. The President has already enacted $1 trillion in spending cuts to help reduce our deficit—and has a balanced plan to cut the deficit by $4 trillion over the next 10 years.
Under Mitt Romney? The deficit would not just go up, it would go way up. Just like in Massachusetts, where he promised to reduce the debt, but actually increased it by 16 percent. As President, he’d add $5 trillion to the deficit because of a $250,000 tax cut for every millionaire and billionaire in this country that he’s not paying for.
So — another special interest attack ad, another set of outright distortions, and another time when I need to ask you to do what you do best: get the president’s back. Karl Rove is relying on you doing nothing to call out his BS — and I know you’ll prove him wrong. Tweet this video to your friends, Facebook it so people you know see it, post it on your Tumblr — and let’s make sure people get the truth.
Thanks for helping us fight back.”

“In just-released excerpts of Joe Biden’s planned speech today in Youngstown, Ohio, the vice president takes aim at Mitt Romney’s record at Bain Capital and goes into rather more detail about the company’s involvement in GST Steel than you can fit in a 30-second (or even 2-minute) ad:”
“He thinks that because he spent his career as a “businessman,” he has the experience to run the economy.
So let’s take a look at a couple of things he did.
He’s raised it. So let’s take a real hard look at it.
In the 1990s, there was a steel mill in Kansas City, Missouri. It had been in business since 1888. Then Romney and his partners bought the company. Eight years later it went bankrupt.
After a couple of years, because of the way things were being run, the employees went on strike and negotiated an agreement whereby, if anything happened to the company, they would still get their health care and their pensions.
In the meantime, Romney’s management team added debt on the company. When they bought the company it had only $13 million of debt. By the time it filed for bankruptcy, its debt had increased 40 fold to over $533 million.
Even the CEO of the company said it was far too much debt for a company of that size.
I don’t have to tell you in Ohio that in the late 1990s, the steel industry hit tough times. With high payments to make on all that debt, the company couldn’t weather the storm.
And when the company finally filed for bankruptcy, they reneged on their contract with the workers. No health care, lower pensions. Everyone lost their jobs.
But not everyone got hurt. The top 30 executives walked away with $9 million. And Romney and his partners walked away with at least $12 million.
Romney made sure the guys on top got to play by a separate set of rules, he ran massive debts, and the middle class lost. And folks, he thinks this experience will help our economy.
Where I come from, past is prologue.
So what do you think he’ll do as President?”
>> The Violence Against Women’s Act should be about protecting ALL Women. ALL Women! The Republican version of this bill is offensive, and insulting to ALL Women. Women who are lesbians should NOT be excluded, Women who are on Tribal lands should NOT be excluded, Immigrant Women should NOT be excluded, and on, and on, and on…
The GOP WAR on Women is in the policies Republicans have sponsored, and voted for. PERIOD. The Violence Against Women’s Act is no exception.
Thank you MSNBC’S ‘Martin Bashir.’
