Subject(s):

Economy – what do the most recent quarter’s numbers mean? And why is Larry Summers saying high unemployment may be a perpetual thing?

Charlie Crist – is he the shape of things to come in the November election?

NYC carbomb – even though it malfunctioned the fact that it is claimed by the Taliban is significant. Does it usher in a new era of terrorism?

Oil spill – I question the timing. Seriously, what does it mean in terms of politics and energy?

Subject(s):

Immigration: Arizona is tired of the federal government’s foot-dragging and has passed its own law addressing illegal immigrants. The administration is not amused. What is the answer to the problem? Is there one?

State budgets: New Jersey and Illinois are both faced with budget deficits and both states are addressing them in different ways. In NJ the governor is taking on the public service unions and cutting spending. In IL the governor is backing the demands of the public service unions and calling for an income tax hike.

GM’s “payback” of their loan: The real deal? Or smoke and mirrors? If you’re guessing the latter, give yourself a cigar. We’ll explain.

It has sort of been an SSDD week for news. Nothing earth-shattering or ground breaking in particular. Tax day came and went. Tea Parties convened and protested. Democrats seem ready to again ignore jobs and the economy to push their favorite ideological agenda items. And unemployment was “unexpectedly” higher. Same Stuff Different Day.

So, we’ll talk a little about unemployment, a little on what in the world the Democrat political strategy is in all of this, maybe why Bill Clinton is so darn sure the Republicans won’t take back either chamber of Congress this fall (but will blow up another federal building … or something) and, if we have time, touch on Obama’s foreign policy as it pertains to Iran and Israel (or the NYT/Gates claim that he really doesn’t have one for Iran … or for that matter, Israel).

Subject(s):

What’s with all the demonization: The charges against the Tea Party in DC seem to be unsubstantiated and the Democrats now seem to have actually tried to provoke what they claimed happened. What do Democrats hope to earn with this continued attempt to smear the Tea Partiers and is it possible that continuing on this path of insulting their constituents might have very bad consequences for them electorally in November. Do they even care anymore?

Employment numbers and the economy: Some positive numbers in the employment numbers but are they really a positive sign that the bleak unemployment situation is turning around?

About those poll numbers: Polls continue to be taken and they show a steady erosion of support for the recently signed health care reform law. Polls also show a steady decline of support for Democrats from independents, eroding job approval numbers for the president and expanding numbers of people who think the country is on the wrong track. However, a recent poll shows that the people aren’t all that thrilled with the GOP either. Does this portend trouble for Republicans in November as well?
