Poll:  James Holmes preferred over 3xfire3 to handle sanity.

THE UNIVERSE -- Despite his repeated and concerted efforts to convince the

public at large that he is sane, competent, and has accomplished anything in his life more significant than two bowel movements in one day, the public continues to believe that 3xfire3 is a certifiable lunatic who, because of his lying obfuscations and continued detachment from reality, should be kept under sedation and in a locked room.

Poll: Romney preferred over Obama to handle the economy

 

WASHINGTON – Despite concerted Democratic attacks on his business record, Republican challenger Mitt Romney scores a significant advantage over President Obama when it comes to managing the economy, reducing the federal budget deficit and creating jobs, a national USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.

 

By more than 2-1, 63%-29%, those surveyed say Romney's background in business, including his tenure at the private equity firm Bain Capital, would cause him to make good decisions, not bad ones, in dealing with the nation's economic problems over the next four years.

The findings raise questions about Obama's strategy of targeting Bain's record in outsourcing jobs and hammering Romney for refusing to commit to releasing more than two years of his tax returns. Instead, Americans seem focused on the economy, where disappointment with the fragile recovery and the 8.2% unemployment rate are costing the president.

 However, Romney has the edge when it comes to being able to "get things done," and the broad landscape seems tilted in his favor:

•Republicans and Republican-leaning independents are much more enthusiastic about the election, an important factor in persuading supporters to vote. By 18 points, 51%-33%, they report being more enthusiastic than usual about voting. In contrast, Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents by 4 points say they are less enthusiastic than usual, 43%-39%.

•A record number of Americans express skepticism about the activist role of government Obama espouses; 61% say the government is trying to do too many things that should be left to individuals and businesses. That's the highest number since Gallup began asking the question in 1992.

 * Some independents swayed by Obama attacks on Romney

* More than half say debate on tax returns waste of time

By Gabriel Debenedetti

WASHINGTON,

July 24 (Reuters) - Sustained attacks by President Barack Obama's

campaign on Republican rival Mitt Romney's business history and refusal

to release more tax records appear to be working, a Reuters/Ipsos poll

showed on Tuesday.

More than a third of voters

who are registered to a party or as an independent said in the online

survey that what they had heard about Romney's taxes and his time at

Bain Capital private equity firm had given them a less favorable

impression of the Republican candidate.

And

particularly worrying for Romney is that a large slice of independent

voters -- whom he needs to win the Nov. 6 election -- are also buying

into the Obama campaign's portrayal of him as a ruthless businessman

who may be hiding something in his taxes.

"With

three-quarters of registered voters saying they've heard at least a

little about these issues, I would say the Obama campaign has been

successful in raising them to the national conscience," said Ipsos

pollster Julia Clark.

After weeks of accusations

from Obama and his allies that Romney cut U.S. jobs and sent

them overseas while he headed Bain, 36 percent of registered voters

said the issue had made them see Romney less favorably, compared to 18

percent who said they were now more favorable toward the former

governor of Massachusetts.

Among independents,

26 percent regarded him less favorably and 13 percent more favorably

after hearing about his business tenure.

The

Romney campaign counters that Obama is trying to distract attention

from the poor economy with frequent ads and speeches about Bain and the

Republican's personal finances.

The Democrats

are also calling on Romney to release more tax returns beyond the two

years' worth of information he has given so far. An ad last week

suggested that not being more open about his taxes meant the White

House hopeful had something to hide.

A RIGHT TO KNOW

Almost

half of the poll respondents said Americans have a right to know a

presidential candidate's financial history going back many years, while

a third said Romney doesn't need to release any more tax returns and

further requests to do so are an invasion of his privacy.

Among

registered voters, 37 percent said what they had heard about Romney's

taxes made them less favorable toward him, while among independents 30

percent agreed.

The poll results were not all

negative for Romney, though. The Republican holds a 5 percentage point

advantage over Obama among registered voters on his "plan, policy or

approach" to the country's economy.

The margin was 36 to 31 percent among registered voters, but 22 to 19 in favor of Obama among independents.

Americans

also showed signs of displeasure about a candidate's taxes becoming

such an important part of the national dialogue. More than half of

registered voters -- 55 percent -- said the debate about Romney's tax

returns was a waste of time, while 45 percent said it was an important

part of the campaign.

But independents, by a margin of 54 to 46, saw Romney's taxes as important in the fight for the White House.

The poll of 1,195 adults, including 962 registered voters, was taken between Thursday and Monday.

The

precision of Reuters/Ipsos online surveys are measured using a

credibility interval. In this case, the poll has a credibility interval

of plus or minus 3.3 percentage points for all Americans. For

registered voters it was plus or minus 3.7, and for independents it was

plus or minus 8.7. (Editing by Alistair Bell and Cynthia

NO! The tea party is NOT all full of bigots and racists.

Nor xenophobes (look it up Paulie, Rusty)

 

Wes Harris, Arizona Tea Party Leader, Seeks To Recall John McCain Over Huma Abedin Defense.

Conspiracy theories about Secretary of State Hillary Clinton aide

Huma Abedin being linked to the Muslim Brotherhood publicly dribbled

down to the lower echelons of conservative politics this week, with an

Arizona Tea Party leader promising to launch a recall effort against

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) for his defense of Abedin.

Last week, a group of Republican lawmakers led by Rep. Michele

Bachmann (R-Minn.) drew widespread condemnation from both sides of the

aisle for the loosely sourced contention that Huma Abedin, the

Muslim-American wife of former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.), had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

McCain strongly pushed back

against this charge, taking to the Senate floor to call the allegations

"nothing less than an unwarranted and unfounded attack on an honorable

woman."

Wes Harris, the founder and chairman of the Original North Phoenix

Tea Party, now says McCain's words have given him grounds to mount an

effort to unseat the longtime senator.

In an interview with the Arizona Capitol Times, Harris called McCain an "embarrassment," before laying out a variety of unapologetic anti-Islamic sentiments.

“Have you ever read the Quran? I suggest you do so, because anyone

that is a Muslim is a threat to this country, and that’s a fact,” Harris

told the Times. “There is no such thing as a moderate Muslim.

If they are Muslim they have to follow the Quran. That’s their religion

and that’s their doctrine.”

According to the Times, Harris believes Muslims are

incapable of being loyal to the U.S., because he claims that their faith

in Islam and the Quran trumps any other allegiance. He also apparently

believes Muslims shouldn't be able to serve in the State Department at

all.

“Is [Abedin] a Muslim? Is she an active Muslim?” Harris asked the Times. “I rest my case. That’s all she needs to be.”

In his email airing his grievances, Harris also linked to the Bare

Naked Islam blog, an internet clearinghouse for Islamophobia that claims

to have further proof of Abedin's supposed ties to the Muslim

Brotherhood. One post touts a new report from the Center for Security

Policy, the right-wing think tank behind the paper that led to Bachmann

and her cohort's initial inquiry, that seeks to unveil the "Islamist"

roots of Abedin's mother.

While other top Republicans, including House Speaker John Boehner

(R-Ohio), came out to reject Bachmann's accusation, Harris says

McCain's defense of Abedin is just the latest in a string of actions

that have warranted a recall effort.

“Go to hell, Senator, it’s time for you to take your final dirt nap,” Harris concludes.

 Bain Capital Created 'Demoralizing' Culture of Layoffs At Florida Plant

WASHINGTON -- When Dade Behring started cutting employees under Bain

Capital's management in the late '90s, Cindy Hewitt was on the front

lines. As a human resources manager for the Dade East plant in Miami,

Hewitt had to decide which employees had needed skills and whose jobs

were expendable.

News of the latest layoffs trickled down to the Dade company

cafeteria. The room could seat more than 1,000, and it had been enough

of a draw that it even offered breakfast.

But as the layoffs hit, the mood in the cafeteria could be as somber

as a funeral, Hewitt recalled. Multiple members of the same family might

be gathered to commiserate over being laid off one by one by one. Some

of them had worked for the medical diagnostics company for more than a

decade.

Hewitt saw her colleagues crying on a daily basis and loudly

celebrating on the rare occasion that someone found a comparable new

job. "There was a tremendous sense of loss and this kind of outpouring

of grief and mourning as every day they waited for the announcement of

who was going next," she said. "People were on pins and needles. Who's

going next? They're worried for themselves, worried for their

co-workers, worried for their families. They'd talk about how they were

going to send their kids to college. It was an incredibly depressing and

demoralizing environment."

Since the Republican presidential primary, Dade Behring, which made

blood-testing machines and conducted animal tests at its Miami plant,

has become something of a focus. Bain Capital, GOP presidential hopeful

Mitt Romney's firm, had bought Dade and shuttered its factory in Puerto

Rico in 1998. The closings continued under Bain's management.

It's become a familiar tale about Romney and Bain's business dealings. The New York Times reported that Bain pushed the profitable company into bankruptcy. The Miami Herald followed with its own chronicle of the mass layoffs and mass profits for Romney and company. The Tampa Bay Times reported

that Dade had received millions in tax breaks to promote job creation

in Puerto Rico one year before it closed the factory there.

Bain, of course, walked away with a huge profit. In 1999, the private

equity firm grabbed $ 242 million after it pressured Dade to borrow more

millions to buy up Bain's shares in the company.

So

many Dade workers lost their jobs -- 1,700 in the United States, 850 in

Miami alone -- that the Bain-Dade dealings have become a symbol of

corporate bloodletting and a painful memory to those who witnessed the

layoffs.

Fred Gregory, an information technology consultant, said he was

brought in to assist the plant closing in Miami. The cafeteria scene

also stuck with him. At a certain point, he told HuffPost, he stopped

eating lunch there. "I didn't want to see the women crying," he

explained.

"You could walk in there and hear a pin drop," Gregory said. "You

could see the emptiness. It was just huddled-up sheep. It was pathetic.

It was heartbreaking, heartwrenching. You just want to hug them."

The layoffs continued for months and months. Gregory saw people fired

and workers running out of the Dade offices in tears. "These people

were scared to death," he said. "This was their livelihood. Some people

couldn't bear it. It was a horrible place to work." Some would get an

hour's notice before being shown the door.

The plant added higher fencing and concertina wire, Gregory said.

Each day, a pair of security guards would check his back seat and trunk

on the way out to make sure he wasn't stealing any office supplies. "It

was all so well orchestrated," he said. "And so evil."

The Romney campaign, Bain Capital, and Siemens, which bought Dade

Behring's operations in 2007, did not respond to requests for comment.

Michael Rumbin had been a Dade vice president. "No one ever came up

to me to ask if we could create more jobs," he told HuffPost. "There was

very little in the way of job creation. It was a business undertaking

in which the Bain Capital people created a tremendous amount of wealth

for themselves and their investors."

 Matt Taibbi Blasts David Brooks: 'Do You Know How Private Equity Works?'

New York Times columnist David Brooks is wrong about Mitt Romney, according to Matt Taibbi.

"I have a serious question for David Brooks, who is hailing Romney's

Bain record. Do you know how private equity works?" Taibbi, a

contributing editor for Rolling Stone, wrote about New York Times columnist David Brooks on Twitter on Tuesday. He continued: "I bet he doesn't have the faintest clue what companies like Bain actually do."

Romney's record at Bain has been a flashpoint during the presidential

race. The presumptive Republican nominee has come under fire for shipping jobs overseas, laying off workers and squeezing profits out of companies that sometimes failed as head of the private equity firm Bain Capital.

Many critics argue that private equity firms extract wealth from companies -- sometimes causing their collapse -- rather than creating new value. But in a column this month, Brooks dismissed the costs of Romney's brand of private equity as simply part of capitalism.

In that column referenced by Taibbi, Brooks wrote

that President Barack Obama represents "big government," and Republican

presidential candidate Mitt Romney represents "capitalism." Romney's

task, he wrote, is to "define the kind of capitalist he is and why the

country needs his virtues."

"It has been his job to be the corporate version of a personal

trainer: take people who are puffy and self-indulgent and whip them into

shape," Brooks wrote of Romney. "That's his selling point: rigor and productivity."

Taibbi has become best known for his scathing criticisms of big business. In 2010, he dubbed Goldman Sachs

"a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity,

relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like

money": a description that haunts Goldman to this day. Also in 2010, Taibbi wrote

that Brooks works "as a professional groveler and flatterer who three

times a week has to come up with new ways to elucidate for his rich

readers how cosmically just their lifestyles are."

 An Aurora shooting victim could face millions in medical costs

because he faces a common problem: He doesn't have health insurance.

The family of Caleb Medley has been told that his medical bills could cost up to $ 2 million if he fully recovers, CBS News reports (h/t ThinkProgress).

Medley, who lacks health insurance, is currently in an induced coma

after he was shot in the eye during Friday's Colorado tragedy. His wife,

Katie, gave birth to their son in the same hospital Tuesday.

Medley’s story illustrates the dangers of remaining uninsured in

America. The Affordable Care Act aims to help the ranks of that class,

which has swelled for four straight years and is now approaching 50 million. The law, which the Supreme Court ruled constitutional last month, could extend health care coverage to up to 30 million uninsured Americans like Medley beginning in 2014.

Republican Jobs Bills Won't Actually Create Jobs, Say Economists

WASHINGTON -- House Republicans routinely beat the drum about the

hard work they have done in passing "more than 30 jobs bills" that are

now before the Democrat-controlled Senate, going nowhere, as the economy

gasps for air.

For almost a year, House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and House

Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) have plugged their jobs package at

every opportunity. They regularly bring it up at press events, during

floor speeches and in statements in response to just about anything

related to the economy. Boehner even carries around

in his jacket pocket a 4-by-8-inch card that lists off their jobs

bills, and he encourages his members to flash their cards at campaign

events.

"President [Barack] Obama and Democrats here in Congress have shown

us what doesn't work: more government, more spending, more taxes don't

create more jobs," Boehner said at a recent weekly briefing. "We've

passed more than 30 jobs bills, including bipartisan bills expanding

energy production and projects like the Keystone pipeline."

Cantor plugged the jobs bills -- and nudged Democrats to get on board

with the Republican plan -- in response to the June unemployment

report. "House Republicans are committed to bold, pro-growth policies

and have passed dozens of bills to create jobs," he said in a statement.

"We've begun to right the ship, but we will not be able to achieve

long-term growth without willing partners in the White House and

Senate."

The GOP jobs package, which currently includes 32 bills, represents

Republicans' hallmark legislative accomplishment over the past two

years. In the months ahead of the election, they will lean on it as

proof of two things: that they are not the do-nothing obstructionists

that Democrats paint them as, and that they are working hard to address

the 8.2 percent unemployment rate.

But there's a problem with their jobs bills: They don't create jobs. At least, they won't any time soon.

In interviews conducted by The Huffington Post with five economists,

most said the GOP jobs package would have no meaningful impact on job

creation in the near term. Some said it was not likely to do much in the

long term, either.

"A

lot of these things are laughable in terms of a jobs plan that would

produce noticeable improvements across the country in the availability

of employment in the next four or five years," said Gary Burtless, a

senior economist at Brookings. "Even in the long run, if they have any

effect all, it would be extremely marginal, relative to the jobs deficit

we currently have."

Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody's Analytics, agreed that the

bills would have almost no effect on job creation in the short term,

though he was slightly more optimistic about their long-term prospects.

"These kind of changes will matter over a period of three to five

years," Zandi said. "It takes that long before businesses can digest

changes and respond to them."

He noted, though, that legislation as narrowly targeted as the Republican package is unlikely to do much for real job creation.

"For it to show up in a meaningful way in the natural economy, you

can make specific changes that could affect a specific industry or a few

companies, but it's not going to make a big difference in terms of the

monthly job numbers," Zandi said. "It takes some very significant

changes across lots of different industries to really make a big

difference."

 WASHINGTON -- Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) signaled Tuesday that

Republican lawmakers may be left with no choice but to accept a deficit

reduction deal that includes new revenues as the country approaches the

"fiscal cliff."

"It's not clear to me that there may be another way to do it in the

future," Toomey said at a Brookings Institution discussion when asked

about his party's openness to raising taxes to avoid another fiscal

crisis.

In January, nearly $ 600 billion in spending cuts and tax increases

are scheduled to take effect unless Congress can come up with a

legislative solution.

"Let me be very clear. I don't believe that adding new revenue in the

form of an increase in the total tax burden is either necessary or

optimal or economically or fiscally required to solve this problem,

because I think it's a problem that arises on the spending side," said

Toomey, who served on the 2011 congressional super committee that tried

to reach a bipartisan deal on deficit reduction last year. "But we did

recognize that it was politically necessary because it was absolutely

essential for our friends on the other side," he added, referring to

those talks.

Toomey's admission comes amid a growing chorus from top Democrats

that they are not afraid to "go over" the fiscal cliff, putting the onus

on their GOP colleagues to back a balanced cuts-and-taxes approach

before the clock strikes midnight Dec. 31.

"If we can’t get a good deal, a balanced deal that calls on the

wealthy to pay their fair share, then I will absolutely continue this

debate into 2013,” said Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) at Brookings earlier this month. Murray served as co - chair of the super committee.

On Monday, Toomey squared off

with former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean on CNBC's "Squawk Box" about the

politics behind the increasingly heated debate over the upcoming

sequestration cuts, which were triggered by the super committee's

failure to agree on a $ 1.2 trillion deficit reduction package.

"I

think we ought to do it," Dean said. "Let's just go over the fiscal

cliff. Everybody's going to bite the bullet. The Republicans are going

to hate the taxes, and the Democrats are going to hate some of the cuts,

but it's going to have to happen."

At Tuesday's event, Toomey accused Democrats of "quintupling down" on

their threat to push the country over the fiscal cliff -- a partisan

stand that he described as not a "substantive solution." 

Murray responded on the Senate floor to Toomey's Tuesday comments by

accusing Republicans of "holding [the middle class] hostage to continue

the tax cuts for the rich" and "scheming ways to cut taxes for the

wealthiest Americans even more."

At Brookings, Toomey declined to state directly whether his own

suggested mix of spending cuts and revenue increases violated Grover

Norquist's widely circulated "No New Taxes" pledge, a major impediment to Republican support for any plan that includes raising revenues.
