Friday’s p-Op quiz: ‘47 percent’ edition


Wow, what a week! We woke up Monday morning to a story about Boston backbiting on Mitt Romney’s campaign. By Monday afternoon, we were feasting on a jaw-dropping secret video of a Romney fundraiser where the Republican presidential nominee disparaged 47 percent of the country as freeloaders. “[M]y job is is not to worry about those people,” he said. By Wednesday, he was singing a different tune. “First of all,” he said at the Univision forum looking oddly tanned, “this is a campaign about the 100 percent.”

Meanwhile, President Obama seemed to be winning the economic argument against Romney, according to the latest NBC News-Wall Street Journal poll. The Chicago teachers strike ended. Trayvon Martin’s DNA was nowhere to be found on the gun used by his killer George Zimmerman. And Aung San Suu Kyi swung by Washington to eat lunch at The Post, pick up a Congressional Gold Medal and chit chat with President Obama in the Oval Office.

Oh! Occupy Wall Street celebrated its first anniversary. Totally forgot about them. But don’t you forget to take the p-Op quiz. So, sharpen your pixels and get crackin’.
