Please do whatever you can to spread this: http://www.romneyeconomics.com/states/
is Steve Benen. His Friday collection of Romney’s top lies of the week is the most important thing any journalist is doing these days. The only other blogger who is pointing out how the media just gives Romney a pass on every damn lie, is Greg Sargent but Benen is doing a real holy work. Please give @stevebenen some love, and more importantly: spread his work like a wild-fire.
Things ARE getting better, but the media will keep tell you that things are getting worse, because lying is these GOP tools the only way to get a liar elected in November. Well, not going to happen.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Unemployment rates fell in two-thirds of U.S. states last month, evidence that modest economic growth is boosting hiring in most areas of the country.
And in many states, unemployment has fallen well below the national average, which was 8.1 percent last month. Rates were lower than 7 percent in 22 states in April. That compares to only 13 states in April 2011.
The Labor Department said Friday that unemployment rates dropped in 37 states in April, the most in three months. Unemployment rose in 5 states and was unchanged in eight.
Nationally, the unemployment rate has fallen a full percentage point since August. Employers have added a million jobs over the past five months, although the pace of hiring slowed in March and April.
The stupidity of anyone voting for the GOP is just mind-blowing.
