Pressure builds for Romney to take lead on Fast and Furious

After a series of delays in Congress due to a clash between Republicans and the GOP leadership, pressure is building for the Party's presumptive nominee Mitt Romney to take the lead on the investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal.

Those secret deals are now being made public by House Republicans with the release of scores of documents and emails from 2009, according to a report today at Fox News.

Obama 'truth teams' intensify attack tracking

After sending its original "attack watch" team under the radar earlier this year, the Obama reelection campaign has intensified its tracking of attacks aimed at the President, according to a report today at The Blaze.
