NBC is so nice in their wording.  The economy is and has been stuck since 2008 after Obama jumped in to do nothing but take money from the working class, claim to want to change social objectives, and eliminate the framework of the constitution.  That was fun, but its really true.  Blame bush .... blame Bush.....   four years from now.... blame Bush!

Thank all who responded to my blog concerning no mention about Nevada.  I have been trying for over 3 years now to get refinanced, have 2 mortgages, but Chase wouldn't even touch me.  Why, I have 830 credit score, 2 secured incomes and no other debt---found out after Obama's program - Nevada Hardest Hit Program - when they agreed with me on my situation and started me on their program at least on the lst mortgage and are implementing eliminating the 2nd mortgage, all of a sudden Chase appears and gives me many, many offers ONLY on the lst mortgage.  Wouldn't touch me beforehand, now want to help only on the first - which is going to be eliminated shortly.  Now, if they truly had wanted to help me, they would have just refinanced both mortgages into one and I would have gone away, I owe the money, they devalued my property from $355,000 down to $97,000 and expected me to sit with my thumb up my behind, well this old gal is sick and tired of being sick and tired.  I will take everything that I can get my hands on and then I plan to get out from under Chase and never to return.  I will be a lot smarter in this new era, this I know.  All the money in Vegas and we who live here and run this town don't have a pot to pee in, what's wrong with this picture.  I say it is greed.  Every working person in Nevada should just strick and make those rich son of a b------ pay more because they have caused unforgiving damage to the Nevada population who have helped make them rich, I say screw all of them and see where they will be without you.

I  have to wonder what kind of idiot reads this and actually doesnt see it for what it is; a bunch of distorted garbage designed to mislead gullible morons?

I notice today in another MSN article titlled, "US Jobless Applications at a 5 Year Low', the comment section is turned off.  MSN must be afraid of the feed back, more government propaganda.

Country is growing and doing better, now stop crying you pub losers.

Iowa, North Dakota, Nebraska, etc., simply can't reduce their unemployment rates as dramatically as other states as it was low to begin with at the start of the recession. I don't think this is a very good way to determine the rate of recovery for any particular state's economy.

This is all reminiscent of the old Soviet propaganda pieces released by the Kremlin. Remember the old five year programs toward economic success? Anyone who questioned it was declared not politically correct? Sound familiar?

Just because some Obama supporter declared it over in 2009 does not necessarily make it so. 
But that is the world of a liberal......virtual reality!

This really a poor article...one of the worst ever, on any subject.  Doesn't somebody look at these before they're posted?

There is no recovery and there will not be.  This is all BS and so it goes on and on. The 'magic carpet' ride will continue and it is self-endocrinated by the same in unison.  Forget the nonsense you hear here, period.  Look around the corner as anarchy is right there.  That is no BS.

The majority of the States with the lowest unemployment and that seem to be doing the best are those who have Republican Governors and leadership.  Take for instant 65,000 Californians have left the State (Democratic Governor, Feinstein, Boxer, and Pelosi--need I say more) because California cities are going bankrupt, unemployment is over 9%, Chinese are buying up all the homes, and government officials paid more than they are worth, and the majority of the 65,000 have moved to Texas (Republican Governor) unemployment is around 6%, thriving economy with ample jobs available, and they don't have all the government intervention of rules and regulations that California has.  Hopefully some of these Republican Governors will decide to fill some of the seats in the Senate and Congress opening up in 2014 and 2016.

I guess I'm a fool because I actually thumbed through 27 slides and it seemed like a decent overview.  Sure you can get into the weeds and analyze more but from whats given you can also see the trends and project why some states have made more of a comeback or did not lose as much i.e. Nebraska and North Dakota vs Virginia and New York.  The financial and technology industries are slow to recover but staples like farming and food producing economies have survived.  Yes, the recovery is working but some industries take longer.   We definitely wont help ourselves if we jump on the sword with another self inflicted injury and degrade our credit rating or tourism industry (few people come to visit a nation that cannot govern itself).....remember New York had a big tourism sector also.
