state of the economy

Bulletman357 | Jan 17, 2013 11:23 AM ET Nice to see Obamas policies paying off Four more,years,and we will have full emplument

OpenMarkets | Jan 17, 2013 11:38 AM ET Look, The weekly jobless claims data is not too important at this point because you have one week when it is down and the next it is up. Even this report has a caveat...."But much of the decline reflects seasonal volatility in the data." Look at the numbers but do not get too obsessed with it as a guide on the employment situation. Every week one side gets their due, then the next week the opposite view of the employment situation is vindicated. The data is not very telling in my opinion. I look at the data just to get a kick out of how how the AP reports the headline. You have to admit ....there is a bias there. As for the stock market, the rise in the market to some extent reflects the rise in productivity and hence the rise in profits. That can%

Bulletman357 | Jan 17, 2013 11:55 AM ET I bet the stock market will float to nowhere this year. That game has been over a long time Time to get real

Originalbigdog. | Jan 17, 2013 11:57 AM ET What a drop in UE claims....McDonalds must be hiring. Thank you President Goofus for bring us all these well paying jobs. More people will be able to buy bread and water.....instead of starving.....oh wait.....thanks to food stamps....they`re having steak tonight....and every night. Yes ....Goofus will go down in history as the FOOD STAMP PRESIDENT !

Bulletman357 | Jan 17, 2013 12:07 PM ET And when the economy improves food stamps for many will go away. There should be means testing for all programs.

apragmatist | Jan 17, 2013 12:20 PM ET originalbigdog you are an idiot and a liar. but keep on rooting against the u.s. and continue to be WRONG. i`m sure you are yearning for those wonderful bush years of 10% unemployment and bailouts and tarp and the end of the financial system as we knew it.

igor1732 | Jan 17, 2013 12:25 PM ET anyonesane I know only one thing, that I was right, and you were wrong all the time. Those numbers you posted are absolutely irrelevant. According to your statements, the unemployment at historical level now in your counties, while you were telling us about millions of unemployed right in your heighborhood. I see that you feel recovery as well in your affluent neighborhood.

anyonesane | Jan 17, 2013 01:23 PM ET @ignorant: Great memory you don`t have there. Unemployment in my area never exceeded 7.5%. I have always stated such, but go ahead and play with made up statements and numbers in your head, if it makes you feel better.

igor1732 | Jan 17, 2013 01:59 PM ET anyonesane yeah..right..you were crying here how bad things are even in your affluent neighborhood. There are a lot of people here remember the crap you used to write here about the state of the economy, unemployment, and other garbage! I see, now unemployment rates are 4.4% in your neighborhood..hah..that`s something...
