According to the good folks at Public Policy Polling — and why they asked this question, I never will know.
15 percent of registered Republicans in Ohio think Willard Romney deserves more credit for killing Osama bin Laden than does the president. Another 47 percent aren’t really sure who does.
29 percent of them give the credit to Romney while a WHOPPING 56 percent of them find it too difficult to answer the question of whether the credit should go to the guy who actually gave the order, or to the guy who forgot to mention the troops in his acceptance speech not long ago.
Happy 9/11, America!

Campaign aides for Republican vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) busied themselves this weekend with telling reporters that the candidate “agrees with Mitt Romney” on keeping marijuana illegal, despite him telling a Colorado television station that he supports letting states flout federal laws on medical marijuana.
Romney said earlier this year that he believes “marijuana should not be legal in this country,” calling it “a gateway drug to other drug violations.”
The views would seem to directly clash with what Ryan told KRDO-TV in Colorado on Friday night. “My personal positions on this issue have been let the states decide what to do with these things,” he remarked during a pre-taped interview. “This is something that is not a HIGH priority of ours as to whether or not we go down this issue. But I’ve always believed is the states should make the right to decide.”

President Obama’s approval rating climbed to 52 percent, his highest rating in many months, according to Gallup’s latest poll.
The last three days of the Democratic National Convention gave him a 7 PERCENT bump in approval over three days, with a 3 PERCENT hike in just the past 24 hours.
Mitt Romney received NO BUMP in the polls from the RNC, dropping from 47 percent before the convention to 46 percent.
The DNC also surpassed the RNC in ratings; even competing with the opening night of NFL football, more people tuned in to Bill Clinton’s DNC speech than the second half of the Cowboys-Giants game.

‘North Dakota Senate Candidate Voted To Make Abortion In Case Of Rape, Incest Carry LIFE SENTENCE’
Rick Berg, North Dakota’s at-large congressman and a candidate for Senate, voted to criminalize abortion in the state as a Class AA felony, including in the case of rape or abortion.
Berg, who is running against former Democratic Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp, voted with a minority of the state house in 2007 to make terminating a pregnancy illegal, in a bill that only made exception for when the life of the mother is endangered.
Berg was granted a coveted speaking slot at the Republican National Convention last week, just weeks after fellow Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin drew bipartisan outrage for outrageously claiming that pregnancies don’t occur in cases of “legitimate rape.”

FACT 3: Ryan is a lyin’ sack of shit!
Louisiana’s exciting experiment in public-school vouchers is steaming forward, providing parents and children with educational excellence and traditional values, hooray!
But that’s not all!
It’s also an excellent lesson in how the free market can improve education, by taking taxpayer funds from the wasteful public schools and handing it to efficient private schools run by religious loons, just the way Real America wants.
Among the 119 voucher schools approved so far is New Orleans’ Light City Christian Academy, founded and run by Apostle Leonard Lucas.
The state’s voucher program will be sending this gentleman, who “walks in the fullness of his calling and wears the mantle of an Apostle and Prophet,” some $364,000 to educate 80 students ($364,000 / 80 = $4,550).
