Pew Research Poll: Obama Holds Lead; Romney Trails on Most Issues
Record Negatives for Supreme Court Driven by GOP Discontent
Despite the stagnant economy and broad dissatisfaction with national conditions, Barack Obama holds a significant lead over Mitt Romney.
Currently, Obama is favored by a 50% to 43% margin among registered voters nationwide.
Obama has led by at least a slim margin in every poll this year, and there is no clear trend in either candidate’s support since Romney wrapped up the GOP nomination.
The latest national survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, conducted June 28-July 9, 2012 among 2,973 adults, including 2,373 registered voters, finds that Romney has not seized the advantage as the candidate best able to improve the economy. In fact, he has lost ground on this issue over the past month. Read the Rest...

SCALIA: We’ll see. Obviously the Amendment does not apply to arms that cannot be hand-carried — it’s to keep and “bear,” so it doesn’t apply to cannons — but I suppose there are hand-held rocket launchers that can bring down airplanes, that will have to be decided.

Really bad Romney Overseas Trip
|Romney to allow press into Israel fundraiser after all|
|Jul 29, 2012 10:10 AM EST|
|Mitt Romney's campaign has reversed a decision to not allow the media into a fundraiser hereMonday morning, bowing to reporters' demand that they be allowed to record the Republican's address to some of his top donors.|
|Read More | Comment|
JERUSALEM (NBC) - Mitt Romney would “respect” Israel's use of military force to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon, a senior aide said on Sunday as the Republican presidential candidate began his visit to Jerusalem.
"If Israel has to take action on its own, in order to stop Iran from developing that capability, the governor would respect that decision," Romney's senior national security aide Dan Senor told reporters traveling with the candidate.
While stopping short of endorsing a preemptive military attack, the comment seemed to differ with President Barack Obama's attempts to convince Israel to avoid any such move.
"CULTURE", Romney-Code for Racism. Not that it's not true, but he's really sucking up on his trip to the US Jews to get their votes away from Obama this November.
JERUSALEM (AP) - Mitt Romney told Jewish donors Monday that their culture is part of what has allowed them to be more economically successful than the Palestinians, outraging Palestinian leaders who suggested his comments were racist and out of touch with the realities of the Middle East. His campaign later said his remarks were mischaracterized.
"As you come here and you see the GDP per capita, for instance, in Israel which is about $21,000 dollars, and compare that with the GDP per capita just across the areas managed by the Palestinian Authority, which is more like $10,000 per capita, you notice such a dramatically stark difference in economic vitality," the Republican presidential candidate told about 40 wealthy donors who ate breakfast at the luxurious King David Hotel.
Romney said some economic histories have theorized that "culture makes all the difference." The Rest of the AP story on his remarks...
Romney doesn't think Public Schools are Worth the Investment.
DETROIT -- Vice President Joe Biden says Mitt Romney doesn't treat public education as a priority and distrusts the hardworking teachers who struggle to create opportunity for the nation's young people.
He says the Republican presidential candidate plans to gut education funding to finance tax breaks for the wealthy. And he says Romney and his GOP rivals made clear during the primary debates that "they don't think public education is worth the investment."
Biden says Romney backs Republican budget plans to slash spending on the Head Start preschool program, as well as grants and loans for college students.
Romney too Wimpy?
Dodging reporters, fearing his base, hiding his taxes—is Mitt Romney just too insecure to be president? In this week's Newsweek (on sale tomorrow), Michael Tomasky surveys a history of presidential manliness and asks just where Mitt Romney would fit amid the studly swagger of Dubya and Reagan. More on this from Daily Beast
"If I was worried about what the media said, I wouldn't get much sleep," Romney said during an interview that aired Sunday on CBS' "Face the Nation." "I'm able to sleep pretty well."
One cartoon shows simply why jobs don't Trickle Down...they come from DEMAND....people at the bottom with jobs...and money to buy stuff.
Florida Republicans Willing to Sacrifice Democracy to Win!
Palin wasn't ready. Bush wasn't ready. And Romney's not ready; he'd need a "handler."
Former vice president Dick Cheney is critical of the process that led to the 2008 selection of another Republican vice presidential candidate: Sarah Palin.
ABC's This Week.
Cheney said Palin, then the first-term governor of Alaska, failed the most basic test of being on the vice presidential short list: "Is this person capable of being president of the United States?"
Said Cheney: "I like Governor Palin. I've met her. I know her. ... Attractive candidate. But based on her background -- she'd only been governor for, what, two years -- I don't think she passed that test ... of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake."

Actually I thought CHENEY was a mistake as well, but for a different reason. He was a criminal. Palin was indeed a stupid choice just designed to win, but McCain could've handled the job. CHENEY, though, was needed to run the country with BUSH because Bush WASN'T able to handle the job by himself.
For the same reason, ROMNEY better find himself a CRACKERJACK Vice president to tell him what to say and do in the sad event he wins.
-0- I'm sure firemen enjoyed breaking out those windows, snapping this picture, and then putting it on the Internet. That this is a BMW probably gave them even MORE pleasure. The class warfare LIVES in the union world! Lower level people have so LITTLE CONTROL of their lives in this world... this photo makes them all feel just a little bit better, symbolically! Just relishing the little inconvenience the wealthy must pay for ignoring the rules the rest of us pay dearly, when we violate them on a daily basis!!
