This is somewhat unlike other election years. You do'nt typically see bad economic numbers on the way to November. But July saw a slight uptick in unemployment in the country. 2012 8.3 8.3 8.2 8.1 8.2 8.2 8.3 OVerall the economy is supposed to look better wit hthe President rolling out all sort of goodies as election day approaches. Mind you that didn't happen in 2008. Things got progressively worse for Bush and the Republicans (and has moderately improved since). Of course we all know why that happened (market CRASH). So will the unemployment rate trickle downwards come November? I think we can expect a down turn, perhaps even below 8. It's not out of the question to see a temporary drop if there's enough positive sentiment in the economy. But then again, .4 drop in unemployment translates into millions of jobs.....Those don't crop up overnight.

I thought the guy was 13, but hey, you work hard you can achieve great things at a young age. barely over 40 Ryan is set to roll to election day in November with Mitt Romney. There's sure to be some controversy surrounding his appointment. But I think the biggest item going for Republicans is the draw to young voters, and some sort of fiscal conservative aura around Ryan. He'll have to do better with this speeches (looks a bit tight), and of course his overall gameplan to prevent snafus like this one: http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-line/post/paul-ryan-fails----the-truth/2012/08/29/bbfe1eac-f254-11e1-b74c-84ed55e0300b_blog.html

On comedian Jimmy Fallon's late night TV show while visitin a Univeristy campus Obama made an appearance 'slow jammin' for lower student loan interest rates. That's not how the office should be portrayed. Is that the only way liberal students learn how to vote?

You never stood a chance. Too greasy for Republicans, not conservative enough for right-wing supporters......(or rather great ideals, but can't live them). Good riddance. Time to get behind one horse to ride into November. Time to push ahead in a unified front.

Still up in the air, and I'm wondering why the media loves to jump on the foibles of the candidates. It make sthem all look incompetent. But then again, maybe they all are. Hopefully, for our sake, a clear cut candidate emerges, even if it's someone who'll make the rich richer, then it'll be a clear race at least.

Take the largest state in the country and check their health. If we do that for California we see issues. Check out this graph.
