    ...living up to your claim of being a political science teacher.

    Was that a blatant lie?

    Your comment is acutely stupid.  I pointed out above that the jobless claims numbers are subject to seasonal noise right now, so that last week's big drop wasn't to be trusted.  In reality, claims are stable, in the high 300s, which isn't great but doesn't point to anything for the jobs report.

    I bounce around in wondering whether you're a GOP troll.  Right now I'm back to thinking yes, you are.

      You explain it to a guy sitting in front of the TV.  All he cares about are the numbers, your brilliant analysis he could care less about.  I know more about the history of American politics than you ever will, you need to get out of the bubble.
      The average citizen only knows that the economy sucks, and that his future is slipping away,and Obama now owns it, and they may hate Romney, a sentiment I cordially agree with, but unless Obama can convince that average voter that he can do better at relieving those fears, then he could easily lose, and this country will head into the abyss with a morally dead corporate vulture at its head, imagine Rick Scott running the country, with better hair.
      Claims may be stable but they do not point to an economy growing fast enough to relieve peoples' fears and if I were Obama, I would be worried about slowly declining personal  numbers.  It might be smarter to have Biden and Priorities USA handle the Bain and Tax questions, let them do the hammering and let Obama handle what he wants to do for a second term.

        "I know more about the history of American politics than you ever will, you need to get out of the bubble."

        I see no evidence to suggest that in all your posts going back several months.

          ...that suggests any knowledge at all of the history of American politics.  Not even one measley comment.  I'm not sure I've read each and every one, but I've seen plenty of them, and there's only ignorance almost every time.
