the dems do not help the middle class, they just like taxing the middle class. dont be fooled, neither party likes the middle class. oh, if you mean the dems like the middle class as in the unions, then you are right, but outside of the unions the dems cant stand the middle class.

Not likely.
Poll results have been pretty consistantly a "sea of Blue":

RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Romney vs. Obama

RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Santorum vs. Obama

RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Gingrich vs. Obama

RealClearPolitics - Election 2012 - General Election: Paul vs. Obama

So, you admit the economy is improving, good to know. FYI trying to use one month as a basis for claiming otherwise only make you look foolish Hmmmm, so Romney is going to try again in 2016 after losing in 2012, I have no idea why he would, he won't be able to when then either, the GOP will have a better candidate by then, can you spell Christie

I think you are going to hear a lot of popping sounds here, the Paul supporters will be first when Paul is shown the door and the diehard Repubs are simply too stupid to know they have zero change of winning the Whitehouse in 2012, especialy with their rich dog lover
I am definately going to enjoy watch them implode and then we can expect four more years of whining and don't forget the Birthers, watching those yappy dogs chase their tales is priceless. I will not be surprised if we see a major split in the GOP, the Party has become so divided by Tea Baggers, Libritarians, Fundementalist Christians and Racists that I doubt anyone could repair the mess.

Bah, these huge gains are just the government cooking the books for the election... oh, wait. Dang they forgot to cook the books this month? How exactly do those who have been rationalizing the gaudy job gains as government fudging the numbers explain a sudden dip?

I could see it being debatable how strong the recovery is, how vulnerable it is, who's fault it is or isn't, etc. but to claim there has been no jobs recovery and no economic recovery happening is taking ostrich behavior to a new level. Come on, are you really partisan to the point of alternate realities?

Yup.

Not only that but the ADP private payroll processing company (NOT a government agency, but a PRIVATE COMPANY that processes payrolls for thousands of other firms around the country) said THEIR payroll counts were UP 209,000 over February. Based on that, I suspect the BLS numbers are probably at least a bit too low and will be adjusted upward when the more refined data comes out next month.

"Employment in the U.S. nonfarm private business sector increased by 209,000 from February to March on a seasonally adjusted basis. Estimated gains for previous months were revised higher; the gain from December to January was revised up by 9,000 to 182,000, and the gain from January to February was revised up by 14,000 to 230,000."
