thank you, espn

ESPN

Thank ESPN on Twitter – Monday Night Football’s PR guy here

****

USA Today: ESPN has dropped Hank Williams Jr. from opening Monday Night Football tonight after Williams controversial comments today about President Obama.

….. Williams, perhaps best known for his “are you ready for some football?” lead-in to ESPN’s Monday Night Football, Monday compared this summer’s so-called golf summit between Obama and House Speaker John Boehner as “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.”

As Williams put it on Fox News’ Fox & Friends: “It would be like Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu.”

When asked on Fox to explain his analogy, Williams said Obama and Vice-President Biden are “the enemy.”

It still isn’t clear if ESPN have just dropped the creep from tonight’s show – or completely. Keep tweeting, let them know what you think 😉

‘unemployment falls, jobs added in most states’

USA Today: The unemployment rate dropped in 34 states in March from February, the Labor Department said Tuesday. That’s the largest number of states to record a decline since June. The rate rose in seven states and was unchanged in nine and Washington, D.C.

Employers hired more workers in 38 states. A government survey of employer payrolls found only 12 states plus Washington, D.C. lost jobs last month, the fewest since October.

….Nationally, the unemployment rate fell in March to a two-year low of 8.8%, and private employers added more than 200,000 jobs for the second consecutive month.

New Mexico reported the biggest monthly drop in unemployment among all states, falling from 8.7% in February to 8.1% in March. Florida, Oklahoma, Indiana, Missouri and Ohio posted the next biggest monthly declines.

Texas added 37,200 net jobs in March, the most of any state. It was followed by Missouri and Florida, both of which reported strong gains. California lost 11,600 net jobs – the most of any state. Connecticut, Louisiana, Maryland and Maine all had large job losses, too.

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?”

😆
