rusty’s going to be in tears again….

Marketwatch: The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits last week fell by 10,000 to a seasonally adjusted 382,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had expected new applications for jobless benefits to drop to 385,000. The average of new claims over the past four weeks, meanwhile, declined by 5,750 to 389,500. The Labor Department also reported that the number of Americans who continue to receive state unemployment checks decreased by 9,000 to 3.72 million in the week of March 26, the lowest level since October 2008. Altogether, 8.52 million people received some kind of state or federal benefit in the week of March 19, down nearly 246,000 from the prior week.

In case you missed last night’s update (below): I did it again, I ventured in to Teapublican territory on the interwebs just to see how they were reacting to yet more Boehner tears. They are not happy bunnies:

“Now I am envisioning him welling up and boo-hooing at this very moment in front of Reid and Obama. All they have to do is tell him how much they respect and admire him. They’ll have him down to one billion in cuts by eleven p.m.”

“God help us. We need someone with ice water in his veins, not mother’s milk.”

“Come on, GOP; dump this guy. He is an embarrassment.”

“C’mon man, enough with the damn crying.”

“Recall how obama threw him a bone during the SOTU message. He didn’t dry up for a day.”

“Oh Geez. Get a Grip, Boner!”

“OMG”

“john boohoo is not the man to lead us out of this disaster. He needs to step down – ASAP!”

“WTF? I understand crying once, say at a soldier’s memorial or something, but over every single thing?”

😆

    You might want to read this, it’s good numbers on unemployment. It might not make it to the msm they only scream when it’s bad news. We will see a lot of yelling from the teapublican about spending but nothing about jobs.

    What a sloppy and gross man.

    Anyways, after 8 years of job loss under the worst president in American history George Bush,accumulating into the worst recession in American history all I can say is thank you President Obama for 14 months of job GAINS. Congratulations to all those that have joined the work force. There is more to come, lets not go backwards.

      I don’t know if anyone heard about this but yesterday FactCheck.org gave a “pants on fire” to Rence Prebus RNC chairman for saying that 26 million jobs were lost under Obama. Where did he pull that number from? 26 million jobs? and I bet the reporter he told this to probably didn’t challenge him.
