POTUS' Day Ahead: Goldrush out west

President Obama departs for the west coast Thursday for a series of fundraisers, touching down first in Seattle for two events. He then heads to Los Angeles where he will attend a glitzy $40,000 per-plate fundraiser at the home of actor George Clooney. That event alone is expected to raise $15 million. The president spends the night in Los Angeles before heading to Reno, Nevada Friday.

    New claims for unemployment benefits fell to 367,000 last week from an upwardly-revised 368,000 the week prior. Economists were expecting claims to rise to 369,000 from an initially reported 365,000.
    Does anyone trust these numbers??? Every weekly announcement includes an "upwardly-revised number" from the week prior. It can't be an accident that the number is never "downly-revised".

        It could be, but it isn't. Another big, big bank with problems. Will we give them a few more billion? Greece is asking for more billions, are we (and the fed res) going to send them more case behind the backs of the Americans?
        Do you understand that American jobs are simply going away? The unemployment rate is falling because we have less jobs and people have been unemployed for so long they are falling out of the stats. This is makeing the unemployment # better, but it is very, very bad news...

      Forward into a stone wall.
      More like flip, flop, flip to something totally different, then flip back to your original position?
      I can trust a person who changes their mind after they get more information. It is difficult for me to trust a person who "evolves" their position into a full circle.

      OBAMA IS USING THE POWER OF THE STATE, TO FORCE HIS RADICAL VIEW OF AMERICA ON ALL OF US. IF ... GOD FORBID ... HE BUYS A SECOND TERM ... AMERICA IS DOOMED.

      Thanks to traitors, like Clooney, Obama, the biased main stream media ... and, the Sodom and Gomorrah Hollywood crowd, America is falling to a new low, under the rule of immoral deviates, perverts, occupiers, terrorists, and communists. Sinners are worshipping a new Golden Calf ... his name is Barack Obama.
