A recent survey of Ohio Republicans found that 15% of respondents believe Romney had more to do with killing Osama bin Laden than Obama did. And another 47% aren't sure who was more responsible.

(The article at Mother Jones, who doesn't think we should take those respondents at their word.)

At least "he's not really dead, it's a conspiracy, it was all lies to get re-elected" wasn't an option??

I can't believe that the GOP base seems to have totally forgotten about Bush and are advocating a return to the policies he used to crash and burn our economy...

"Let's deregulate businesses including the banks! What could go wrong? Nothing is worse than the government bailing out all those lazy poor people and taking money from the companies."

Its like no one remembers 2007.

I would really like to hear the logic behind their thoughts.

Obama is black.

I think it is probably more a case that some people wouldn't want to give Obama 'credit' for anything. Based on the poll results, I'm guessing those that chose Romney love Romney and most of those not sure would probably have preferred if Bush was an option.

And they wouldn't want to give Obama credit because Obama is...? A barely-to-the-left liberal? A Christian? A family man? Educated?

i don't care whether they want to give obama credit or not! i don't even care why they want what they want! romney was nowhere near that shiitake. i'd like to give ben greenman credit for any half-decent music journalism that sasha frere-jones manages to turn out, because sasha is the forking worst, but i don't, because i'm not wildly delusional.

I just meant that it is the difference between being ignorant and being stubborn. Of course maybe I give people too much credit.

One in five Americans believe the sun orbits the earth, so....not surprised. Sigh.

Maybe they're the 47% who voted that they were unsure.
