“Ex-PATRIOT”Schumer Targets Anti-Tax Facebook Set - Act to Target Eduardo Saverin – It’s  not a Bill of Attainder, they say, because they’d target any soon-to-be Internet  billionaire who renounces his (or her) citizenship to avoid paying taxes – http://abcn.ws/LgYc14

Whatever I said, I Still Agree With It – Read this Mitt Romney quote and dissect it – “I’m not familiar with precisely what I said, but I stand by what I said, whatever it was,” Romney said. “And with regards to — I’ll go back and take a look at what was said there.”

It started this morning with a New York Times story Jeremiah Wright and Fred Davis and the possibility of a new SuperPAC attacking Obama with a “literate” black spokesman.

The Details of the Jeremiah Wright Plan were Dissected Piecemeal by Jake Tapper:

On the immediate distance Romney put between himself and the idea – http://abcn.ws/JNMaJe

On Adman Fred Davis – Mark Salter said he needs “round-the-clock adult supervision” – http://abcn.ws/L3dFfr

On TD Ameritrade and their billionaire former CEO who considered bankrolling the Jeremiah Wright-focused campaign – http://abcn.ws/Kk72FM

The proposal, which was one given to the Joe-Ricketts-backed group, and we’re told was never seriously considered, dominated the day. http://abcn.ws/Jy7a7x

Romney said he was going to focus his campaign on the issues, not personal attacks. But it turns out that earlier this year he himself had mentioned Wright in a radio interview. He didn’t remember that interview, which led to the afore-mentioned quote.

Matt Negrin explains why Romney not remembering something but still saying he agrees with it could mean something – http://abcn.ws/J1jVDL

What did Romney not recall saying?  Something on the Hannity radio show in February: “I’m not sure which is worse him listening to Reverend Wright or him saying we must be a less Christian nation.”

Character Assassination – That stomped a bit on Romney’s pledge today that he would focus his campaign on the economy and the issues, unlike the Obama campaign, which he said was trying to assassinate his character – http://abcn.ws/KFjCCl

Coburn Suggests DNC and RNC Give Back $36 Million in Convention Tax Money – Jon Karl asks them about it. Rough translation:  Both said no.  Bipartisanship! – http://abcn.ws/Kjhyvf

Power Players – Can John Edwards Ever Come Back? – George “I’ve never seen approval ratings this low” – 3 percent! – “Those kind of numbers rule out a political career.

But not personal redemption — and ultimate recovery from the scandal.  Here’s what Edwards can do.” Be like Chuck Colson -  http://abcn.ws/KqnoNu

Obama Courts Veterans With New Campaign – Obama lost the veterans’ vote in 2008 to John McCain (himself a veteran), 55 to 45 percent. But campaign officials now believe that changing demographics in the country and the military, coupled with Obama’s record on veterans issues, could give him an edge  – http://abcn.ws/KwT5IK
