To mark World Multiple Sclerosis Day the Romney campaign released a web video highlighting Ann Romney’s battle with the disease.

“Probably the toughest time in my life was standing there with Ann as we hugged each other and the diagnosis came,” Mitt Romney says in the clip. “As long as it’s not something fatal, I’m just fine. I’m happy in life as long as I’ve got my soul mate with me.”

The web video features Mitt and Ann Romney as well as their sons discussing Ann’s multiple sclerosis. The Romney boys praise their father’s handling of her diagnosis.

“He really stepped up. He let her be sick, let her take the time that she needed,” Tagg Romney says.

STAR OF DAVID OR 'PLAIN STAR'?   If you thought "CP Time" was impolitic, on July 2 Donald Trump posted a picture on Twitter of a Star of David on top of a pile of cash next to Hillary Clinton's face. You'd think after the aforementioned crime stats incident (or after engaging a user called "@WhiteGenocideTM," or blasting out a quote from Benito Mussolini, or...) Trump would have learned to wait a full 15 seconds before hitting the "Tweet" button. But not only was the gaffe itself bad, the attempts at damage control made the BP oil spill response look a virtuoso performance.  About two hours after the image went up on Trump's account, somebody took it down and replaced it with a similar picture that swapped the hexagram with a circle (bearing the same legend "Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!"!). Believe it or not, it actually got worse from there. As reports arose that the first image had originated on a white supremacist message board, Trump insisted that the shape was a "sheriff's star," or "plain star," not a Star of David. And he continued to sulk about the coverage online and in public for days afterward, even when the media was clearly ready to move on. This refusal to just let some bad press go would haunt him later on.
