Fresh Out of the Deck: Mitt Romney's Mixtape for Barack Obama

Boy is this race getting heated! We, of course, refrain from overt political commentary within these pages because the New Times, and County Grind more precisely, aim to maintain an air of decorum and bipartisan neutrality. It's your vote, we do not want to sway your decision-making process with cutesy blogs about the candidates.

Nope, impartiality is the rule around this office. However, since we did get cheeky and report parts of the mixtape that Obama made for Romney, we waited with baited breath for Romney's camp to reciprocate. We're happy to see the candidates engage in a clean campaign that echoes the golden days of the American Tape Traders Network. Who knew these cats were so old school?

10. Pat Benatar - "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
These are fighting words where we come from. Make sure Dick Cheney's nowhere around yielding a shotgun when this baby plays. 

9. Los Tigres del Norte - "La Puerta Negra"
We all know how Romney is proud of his Mexican roots but we think "The Black Door" might be a little over-the-top.

8. Shooter Jennings - "The Deed and the Dollar"
We get it, Romney is hip. Maybe a little too hip.
