Bloomberg: President Barack Obama has gained an advantage over Republican Mitt Romney in a Pew Research Center Poll showing public confidence in either one’s handling of the economy shifting toward the president in the past month.

Obama leads Romney by 50 percent to 43 percent among registered voters surveyed, Pew reports, with the Republican Party’s presumed presidential nominee losing 3 percentage points of support since its previous poll in early June.

Public opinion on which candidate would do a better job of improving economic conditions has shifted from an advantage for Romney in Pew’s June survey to support for Obama in the latest survey of 2,373 registered voters conducted June 28-July 9.

Charles Blow: Mitt Romney’s stories just don’t jibe.

First, there is the issue of when he left Bain Capital, the private-equity firm he founded.

….Second is the issue of Romney’s tax returns.

…The narrative is starting to take hold that he is dishonest, devious and irreconcilably different. These are simple, deadly character flaws in a candidate because they’re antithetical to the American ideal of the presidency.

… My mother used to say: “If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember what you said.” The simple truth makes sense, stands on its own and can be proved. Nine times out of 10, things that require constant clarification and endless appending aren’t the simple truth.

That’s mother’s wit, and everyone has a mother.

Charles Pierce: As entertaining as all the When-Did-Willard-Leave-Bain-And-How-Thoroughly-Did-He-Leave-It? whoop-de-doo is, doesn’t fighting over the subject imply that you’re accepting the notion that Bain only went all predatory and pirate-ish as a result of Thoroughly Moral Mitt’s departure? And isn’t that really the wrong question to be asking, and doesn’t that really make you sort of a sap? Discuss.
