Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Romney 'french kissed' Obama during third Presidential debate, says Texas GOP senator

Washington - Ted Cruz, the first Hispanic to win a Senate seat in Texas, believes that Republican contender Mitt Romney got a little too close to Barack Obama in the third presidential debate.

"I'm pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama," Cruz said in a speech at the Federalist Society's annual conference Friday.

According to Politico, Cruz said that conservatives failed to make their case to the American people, leaving Romney no choice, but to move toward the president.

"We didn't win the argument, we didn't even make the argument throughout much of 2012," he said.

Cruz, however, argued that in the first debate that changed.

"It was the one time we actually contested ideas, presented two viewpoints and directions for the country," the report quoted him, as saying.

"And then inevitably, there are these mandarins of politics, who give the voice: 'Don't show any contrasts. Don't rock the boat.' So by the third debate, I'm pretty certain Mitt Romney actually French-kissed Barack Obama," he said.

"I have no doubt that there is a focus group somewhere of undecided Ohio voters who have been living in a cave for the last 30 years, who decided they liked that. Don't show any disagreement whatsoever with the president. Don't rock the boat. Just be a nice guy," he added.
