On top of my other problems today, my traveling laptop seems to have given up the ghost, so I’m currently tapping this out on an ancient business center PC that will soon charge me a small fortune if I don’t log out. Nothing like a nostalgic trip back to the 1990s, eh?

In any event, here are some closing items for the day:

* David Corn unearths a video of Mitt speaking to donors and making it clear he will have no interest in the views or wishes of Obama supporters if he’s elected.

* Peter King can’t identify an Obama “apology,” but insists it must exist.

* Pew shows public disapproval of Romney comments on Middle East crisis by 26/48 margin.

* At College Guide, Daniel Luzer takes a look at what sequestration would likely do to higher ed programs.

* At Ten Miles Square, Seth Masket evaluates Romney gaffes and notes that campaign doesn’t apologize when “the base” like the gaffe.

And in non-political news:

* Harvey Weinstein may have already cornered Oscars.

I’ll be back with a new and improved game plan tomorrow!
