Obama slams Romney WOODBRIDGE: US President Barack Obama took a political sledgehammer to Republican foe Mitt Romney Friday, saying Americans rejected the "inside job" politics of a man who had written off half his nation. With new polls cementing his front-runner status, Obama reprised unifying language from the famous 2004 speech with which he made his name, vowing to fight for students, single mothers and veterans no matter whom they voted for. Obama's attack previewed how his campaign will exploit the tape secretly filmed at a fundraiser for rich donors at which Romney said 47 percent of Americans backed the president because they were victims and paid no taxes. "I don't believe we can get very far with leaders who write off half the nation as a bunch of victims -- who think that they're not interested in taking responsibility for their own lives," Obama said. "I don't see a lot of victims in this crowd today. ...

Brazil vows to halve high number of traffic deaths  BRASILIA: President Dilma Rousseff on Friday, moving to raise awareness of Brazil's unacceptably high traffic deaths, launched a campaign to halve the number of road accidents by 2020. A day after official statistics showed that 53 percent of the country's 194-million-strong population was now middle class, she said reducing traffic deaths was essential to ensure that Brazil becomes "not just a great middle class country, but also a great civilized country". Nearly 43,000 people died in traffic ...

S.Africa JOHANNESBURG: South Africa's police on Friday issued an arrest warrant for firebrand Julius Malema whose calls for a wave of illegal mining strikes have inflamed a spread of crippling shut-downs on mines.

More than half of Brazil population middle class  BRASILIA: Fifty-three percent of Brazil's population of 194 million is now middle class, as tens of millions of people are lifted out of poverty, a government study said Thursday.

Among them were 35 million who emerged from poverty over the past 10 years. And nearly 80 percent of the new members of the expanding middle class ...

Newly aggressive Romney tries another reset for campaign  MIAMI/SARASOTA: Taking a more aggressive tack after a series of reversals, Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney accused US President Barack Obama on Thursday of "surrendering" in his attempt to change up Washington. A comment that Obama made in an interview with the Spanish-language television network Univision in Florida gave Romney an opening to charge that the president is ineffective. Obama told Univision his 2010 US healthcare overhaul was a result of Americans exerting pressure on Washington for ...
