When Roger West first launched the progressive political blog "News From The Other Side" in May 2010, he could hardly have predicted the impact that his venture would have on the media and political debate. As the New Media emerged as a counterbalance to established media sources, Roger wrote his copious blogs about national politics, the tea party movement, mid-term elections, and the failings of the radical right to the vanguard of the New Media movement. Roger West's efforts as a leading blogger have tremendous reach. NFTOS has led the effort to bring accountability to mainstream media sources such as FOX NEWS, Breitbart's "Big Journalism. Roger's breadth of experience, engaging style, and cultivation of loyal readership - over 92 million visitors - give him unique insight into the past, present, and future of the New Media and political rhetoric that exists in our society today. What we are against: Radical Right Wing Agendas Incompetent Establishment Donald J. Trump Corporate Malfeasence We are for: Global and Econmoic Security Social and Economic Justice Media Accountability THE RESISTANCE

Like all bullies, Mitt Robme can dish it out, but he can’t take it. There has always been a perception surrounding Robme that he has a glass jaw. He is soft. He can’t take the heat, and he cracks under pressure. The Robme campaign’s pathological demands for retractions and apologies lend credibility to this perception.

What Robme and his campaign don’t seem to understand is that they are playing in the big leagues now. His opponent has been through all of this before and won. Robme’s attacks on Obama look like an ice cream social compared to the political war that was the 2008 Democratic primary against Hillary Clinton.

The cherry on top of the whole debacle came when the tea bagging nominee completely sabotaged his whole performance and gave the media a bigger headline, by refusing to release more tax returns.

Romney tried to claim the moral high ground by demanding an apology. The Obama campaign responded with a new TV ad airing in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, North Carolina, New Hampshire, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia hitting the Republican on Bain, outsourcing, and his offshore bank accounts.

Mitt Robme didn’t get his apology, but he did get a giant fuck you from the Obama campaign.
