    Jobless claims hit an unexpected 4 month high

    So jobless claims jumped 49K to 388K, wow must be caused by those pesky low gas prices. Oh wait a minute was it the low gas prices that caused a bad economy or was it the high gas prices that caused the good economy. Oh dear, oh dear I get so confused. Oh I know it is all Bush's fault. that's better. Thank you Mr. President for all that you do, and thank you for all of those "Green Jobs". You are definately doing a great job and I can't wait for four more years of the same.

      Women Review Debate 3 : First, Governor Mitt Romney Pasted the President Test, Ready to Lead USA. By USA_Jewish_Women 10 22 2012

      Great Impression: Mitt Romney's Stunning Turnaround in Past 3 Debates after Huge Negative Ads.

      The Reasons for Change is Obama has Lost the Support and Respect with Women Voters and Others.

      People Notice: Most Men and Women are Turned Off Against Barack Obama most everywhere and Across All 50 States,

      Here is the the Review of Debate 3 on October 22, 2012
      By a Jewish Women Focus Group of 7,890 Women Connecticut Across America

      Our Strong Plea for Change in the White House, Why? The following reasons listed bellow.

      Note: This review is a agreement amongst a Group of almost 8000 Women watching debates.

      During the Debate 3, President Barack Obama was Arrogant, Disrespectfully, Angry, Rude and Condescending to Governor Mitt Romney. Obama did not Act or Look Presidential.

      We Feel Governor Mitt Romney Pasted the Presidential Test and is Ready to Lead USA

      We Support Mitt Romney, found him to be a Smart, Respectable and Decent Gentleman.

      Governor Mitt Romney Looked Much More Presidential, Ready to be Commander-in-Chief.

      Mitt Romney said America Needs a Strong Economy in order to have a Strong Military for our National Security right now and the Future. ...... We All Agree.

      Women came away from this Debate with a Very Good Impression of Governor Mitt Romney, in that he would be a “ A Safe Pair of Hands.” in Foreign Policy and a Strong Economy. We Trust Him More. Obama lied about Libya on 9 11 ( a 8 hour fire fight, Obama watched did nothing)

      In Foreign Policy We feel Mitt Romney is Tough Enough to do what’s necessary, but laid-back enough not to do too much and get us into another war.

      Miit Romney Did Not attack President Obama's Policies, he Simply Pointed Out a Few Needed Improvements in a Very Respectable Way.

      During the debate Governor Mitt Romney Seemed More Like a Leader, Smart, Respectable, Thoughtful and Considerate. He looked and Acted more Like the New American President that our Nation and the rest of the World Needs so Disparately in These Troubling Economic Times.

      Governor Mitt Romney was Calm, Thoughtful, Relaxed, Steady, Looked Like A Smart Gentleman and More Presidential.

      Romney Looked and Acted as if he was Ready to Take the Job as Commander-in-Chief ASAP.

      President Barack Obama Looked more like a Very Disparate Candidate and Challenger, very Negative, Acted like a Disrespectful Attack Dog Instead of the President of the United States.

      Mitt Romney Expressed his Concern about Iran's Nuclear Threat that is 4 Years Closer and the USA Support of Israel, our Good Friend and Middle East Ally. The strained relationship with the Obama Administration.

      Tonight Romney Impressed the Ladies Very much, in that a Vote for Him is a Vote for American Security, Peace and Safety, a Strong Economy, a Strong Military, Millions of Higher Paying Jobs, Prosperity for the Middle Class and Others. and a Quiet Peaceful Life for USA and all People.

      The World is Much to Scary these days, Americans Aren’t Looking For a Scary Arrogant, Angry. Rude, Disrespectfully and Weak President. Barack Obama is Not the One to Lead us Any Longer

      Tonight we Came Away with the Feeling that President Barack Obama is extremely a more Scary Candidate then the President of USA.

      We are Concerned about America's Weaken Relationship with Israel, a Nuclear Iran, our Weaken Economy and the Huge 16 Trillion Dollars Debt, that in itself Threatens our National Security.

      Americans, Black, White, Latinos, Wake Up, USA Debt is Bigger than our Gross National Product.

      We Can Not Afford Four More Years of President Obama's Spending, Borrowing and lies.

      We Can Not Afford Another 5 or 6 Trillion Dollars in More Debt From China or Other Countries.

      Our Jewish Women's Focus Group of almost 8000 Democrats Therefore Proudly Endorse Governor Mitt Romney as the Next President of the United States of America.

      Vote for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan Before It's to Late. Do it Now ....ASAP

      Public Notice: We Feel Strongly that President Barack Obama is No Longer Fit to Lead USA.

    • Obama Sees Middle Class Tax Increase as a Victory read this and vote for Obama if you like it.

      –Obamacare law contains 20 new or higher taxes on American families and small businesses–

      The Largest Tax Hike in US History has just been upheld by the Supreme Court of the United States and President Obama sees this assault on the middle class as a victory.

      The already unpopular 2010 health care reform law has been converted by the court into a $1.76 trillion tax increase funded by escalating taxes to be paid the vast majority of taxpayers. The high court’s ruling leaves in place 20 tax increases in the health-care law, of those, 12 tax hikes would affect families earning less than $250,000 per year, including a “Cadillac tax” on high-cost insurance plans, a tax on insurance providers, and an excise tax on medical device manufacturers. By formally converting ‘Obamacare’ into ‘Obamatax,’ the court allows Obama to raise taxes on the middle-class.

      The decision is a distressing blow to taxpayers and represents the single largest tax increase on young people in the nation’s history. When it takes full effect, the Internal Revenue Service will have immense new power and authority to persecute and prosecute a whole new group of taxpayers.

      If the law takes full effect, it will devastate small businesses and destroy any chance for a sustainable economic recovery. It will add trillions of dollars to the national debt and push the country toward bankruptcy even faster than current projections. Any individual who believes that
      this decision must be overturned must do everything possible to undo the damage that has been done, especially at the ballot box on November 6.

    • also the welfare rate has increased 32% to the highest level since obummer took office. I did not say to 32% either.

    • Obami unplugged, (no teleprompter), is a scary thing. It puts his non-business, economic mind on parade for all to see. God, we got a chance to get a real businessman in the Whitehouse. Someone who understand that $ 6 dollar a gallon gas isn't good for anyone, but the OPEC nations. Nations that hate us, like this Presidente apparently does. The war on women is alive, thanks to Barry. It's against the single woman, head of household, trying to get enough gas to go to work, trying to feed her family.

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Last week bogus job numbers did not include California who did not get their numbers in on time, that accounts for the unemployment drop last week.

    • And, btw, despite the one-week spike, the moving average in initial jobless claims is continuing to decline.

    • "Oh dear, oh dear I get so confused."

      Well, you got one thing right.

    • "Oh wait a minute was it the low gas prices that caused a bad economy or was it the high gas prices that caused the good economy"

      If you heard this week's debate, the President suggested high gas prices are the result of the poor economy.

      I leave it to others to figure that one out.

      • Crazy Joe must have told him that and Obama fell for it,

      • "Oh dear, oh dear I get so confused."--- Finally, an honest tea party statement.

        Absolutely wrong, both of you. Obama noted that oil prices, like the prices of all commodities, collapsed during the financial crisis and the recession. The financial crisis was the cause of low oil prices, and thus low gas prices. Gas prices were pushing $4 before the crisis, and they're pushing $4 after. The trend is to higher commodity prices overall due to burgeoning demand from emerging markets. Obama's solution: efficient use of scarce resources. Romney's solution: subsidize oil production with taxpayer dollars. You can argue around the edges, but we are already producing more oil in this country than ever before. How long do you think we can beat that horse?

        Obama's solutions are working. With the new CAFE standards, Americans are using far less gas than they were before. You have a wide variety of fuel efficient vehicles to choose from--some with twice the mpg of vehicles in the same class just a few years ago. That means that no matter what the price of gas at the pump, you are paying half as much as you would be without Obama. Romney wants to get rid of CAFE standards.

        Still confused? I'm not. I am lucid and I know exactly what I am talking about. A vote for Obama is a vote for truth, justice and the American way. Let the Froggies and other confused Tea Partiers move to China if they think its better there.

      Do I sense a hint of sarcasm here?

      • 1 Reply to ricky18201
      • No not at all Ricky. Just trying to understand the logic used by the "Precious One" in the last debate, which (unlike me) you totally understood and are ready to embrace as the only logical cause for changes in gas prices. Further I suspect that in your world market forces (i.e., supply and demand) have little to do with price point dynamics (i.e., the more product available the lower the price and the less product available the higher the price).

        Oh wait a minute, maybe there was a hint of sarcasm.
