Obama Defends Attacks on Romney's Business Experience

President Obama said that attacks on Mitt Romney's experience at Bain Capital were fair game and that Romney's years heading the private equity firm were "worthy of serious debate," the New York Times reports.

Said Obama: "This is not a distraction. This is what this campaign is going to be about."

"Obama's comments were his first explicit endorsement of his campaign's aggressive strategy attacking Bain Capital. The Obama campaign's full-throated assault, through ads, statements and Web videos, is now in its second week and portrays Mr. Romney in highly personal and unflattering ways."
