| Political Talk|| Perspective on a particular NBC/WSJ Poll finding - NHTIGER on 10/11/13 at 11:34 am|
"Just 26 percent view the Republican Party positively, which is an all-time low for the party. That's compared with 49 percent who have a favorable view of the Democratic Party."
Is such a finding a bad omen for the next Congressional elections for the Republicans?

Watched the whole thing with my Dad on ABC's Fight of the Week, with Don Dunphy doing the blow-by-blow commentary, on that Saturday night in March of 1962.
Even though Paret didn't die for another 10 days, we knew we had witnessed something very horrific on live television. Paret looked dead on ...
| Political Talk|| So really bad economic news just glides by the media today - NHTIGER on 6/26/13 at 5:55 pm|
1st quarter GDP went from an initial estimate of 2.5% in April, was revised down slightly to 2.4% in May and then today, completely unexpectedly, plummeted to a paltry 1.8%.
So after a 3.1% increase in the 3rd quarter of 2012, the economy has "surged ahead" towards recovery with a +0.4% 4th quart...

Have not seen any similar threads but if there are, I will delete. Just trying to be helpful on a sometimes-confusing set of characters. In fast-moving stories such as this, the media sometimes just assumes everyone has time to keep track of the principals.

Pfeiffer is making the rounds of all 5 major Sunday morning shows (a la Susan Rice, and for the same purpose - establishing a false narrative)- now watching him on CNN's State of the Union Ccandy Crowley), the 4th one I have seen so far.
Pfeiffer has repeated the word "investigation" regarding th...

I'll take a shot at it:
U-3 to stay even at 7.6%.
U-6 to increase from 13.8% to 14.0%.
Labor participation rate to drop from 63.3% to 63.2%.

It'll be Dem congressman Ed Markey (37 years in the House, known as the "ice cream man") vs. former Navy SEAL Gabriel Gomez for the Republicans, vying for the John Kerry seat.
Gomez is actually a liberal, so it's liberal vs. super liberal in June.

Manufacturing jobs down.
Participation rate at 63.3%, lowest since 1979.
U-6 dropped from 14.3% to 13.8% - mainly due to part-time workers losing those jobs, voluntarily or non-voluntarily, thus being eliminated from being "counted"....

Even for just six months, it would be like nails on a chalkboard listening to more of his rants - especially when it appeared we were within two weeks of never seeing his mug again. Not a sure thing yet, but even the possibility of him being called 'Senator" churns the stomach.

The last poll is the one that the pollsters get "graded" on over the next 2 years and 4 years. By tomorrow, they know that almost no one is left to sway, so they will go as straight up as they can to protect their integrity.
