(Newsmax.com) More than a third of likely voters — 34 percent — fault President Barack Obama most for the country’s lethargic economy over the past few years, making him the top culprit in a new poll from The Hill.
And a 53 percent majority or responents in the poll say Obama has taken the wrong actions on the economy, slowing it down, while just 42 percent say he has taken the correct actions to revive the economy.
Even worse for Obama, 37 percent of independents, who will likely determine the election’s outcome, blame him for the nation’s dire economic straits. Another 29 percent blame Congress, 20 percent blame financial institutions and corporations, and 9 percent blame Bush.

Holmes, who did not speak, sat in a maroon jailhouse jumpsuit as the judge advised him of the case. He appeared wide-eyed with bright reddish orange hair.
