In a media sweep of interviews to five networks, Mitt Romney today repeated his call for an apology from the Obama campaign for suggesting he was either a felon or a liar regarding his tenure at Bain Capital. “This is reckless and absurd on [Obama’s] part, and it’s something that’s beneath his dignity,” Romney told CBS News.

Despite the tough rhetoric, Romney appeared amiable; perhaps too much so?

An apology is not forthcoming according to some sources. Pushing back against the push-back, the Obama campaign lobbies for the release of more tax returns.
