Marketwatch: Applications for unemployment compensation fell sharply last week, partly reversing a large spike earlier in April and suggesting some improvement in U.S. hiring trends.
The number of people who filed initial requests for jobless benefits fell by 44,000 to a seasonally adjusted 434,000 in the week ended May 7, the Labor Department said Thursday
Loved how PBO put big business in the hot seat during the CBS town hall saying they’re making huge profits and owe the American people who bailed them out jobs.
Yes I loved that too. And he also needs to put in hotseat the state and local Republican governors & mayors who deliberately sabotage economic recovery by cutting their budgets and laying off workers.
Yes he does. He did mention how the states’ attacking and firing government workers has been a main reason for unemployment.
Hey, Chipsticks, this is an old PPP poll (May 1) but it shows PBO’s got strength in Arizona (!)
Obama beats all Republicans but Romney in AZ
Raleigh, N.C. – Even as President Obama is on shakier ground now than he was in 2008
in states he won easily like Pennsylvania and Nevada, his re-election campaign, rather
than retreat and reinforce, is reportedly planning to expand the electoral playing field
even further. PPP’s latest poll of the home state of Obama’s 2008 opponent, John
McCain, shows that this plan has some merit. McCain beat Obama by over eight points
in Arizona, but none of his potential successors comes close to that comfortable margin.
The president leads four possible 2012 GOP nominees and narrowly lags another.
Obama trails Mitt Romney, 44-48, but tops Mike Huckabee, 46-44; Newt Gingrich, 47-
40; Sarah Palin, 49-38; and Donald Trump, 48-36. In PPP’s January poll, Romney led,
49-43 (a two-point decline), and Huckabee 48-44 (-6). Gingrich tied at 46% (-7), and
Palin trailed 41-49 (-3). Trump was not tested. In the intervening months, the president’s
approval rating has hardly moved, now a net -4. But all the Republicans but Romney
have become less popular, and only Romney is better liked than disliked. Obama has
taken huge leads with independents, tying Romney with them in January but leading by
17 points now.
Palin, McCain’s running mate, has talked of basing any White House bid from the Grand
Canyon State, but 57% of voters do not want the ex-Alaska governor making the state
home, including a third of Republicans and two-thirds of independents.
Love it Proud!
And this made me laugh: “Palin has talked of basing any White House bid from the Grand Canyon State, but 57% of voters do not want the ex-Alaska governor making the state home, including a third of Republicans and two-thirds of independents.”
And being an Arizona native and avid Obama supporter, I definitely do not want Palin here.
THE BEST PLACE FOR PALIN TO WORK?…MAKING TINA FEY’S COFFEE!….:)
Rofl, that’s funny, but you are about rifgt, Lol;-)
