Another poll, Hillary approval still high 59%…


...By far, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton garners the highest approval rating of administration officials tested.

Fifty-nine percent of voters approve and 19 percent disapprove, with the remaining 22 percent unsure. In December, 66 percent approved and 22 percent disapproved….

Hillary has the highest approval of the Administration with Indies:

…Among independents, Clinton (56 percent approve) outperforms all others — including the president (39 percent)….

Obama’s numbers have totally collapsed with Indies:

…More independents disapprove (48 percent) than approve (39 percent) — and that’s been true for about two months….

Hillary is second with Dems:

…–Among Democrats, President Obama receives the highest approval rating (79 percent), followed by Clinton (76 percent) and Biden (71 percent)….

Obama’s approval below 80% with Democrats now:

Seventy-nine percent of Democrats approve and 12 percent disapprove. That’s a record low approval for Obama among his party faithful.

Republicans remain solidly in the disapprove column, as 84 percent give the president a negative rating and 12 percent approve.

My Mastercard purchase from last week was one of like 3 stocks that stayed positive in the S & P today, sell in May, go away baby.

Rick Santelli points out we had climbed back to down 192 when the headline crossed that FINREG passed cloture and would pass tonight, we then tanked 200 points.

ZERO confidence in the Critters.

CW upfronts: scoopage on S2 of Vampire Diaries and S6 of Supernatural…

I miss these shows already and it has been a week, sigh. Katy Perry just performed live at the CW upfronts for advertisers sounds like she got them on their feet!


…The big news is that Supernatural is moving to Friday nights at 9 p.m. ET, after Smallville in its 10th and final season at 8 p.m. This reunites the shows that once worked so well for The CW on Thursday nights.

As for Thursdays, The Vampire Diaries continues to kick off the night at 8 p.m., with Maggie Q’s Nikita following at 9 p.m….

The Vampire Diaries:
Next season, the appearance of the villainous Katherine in Mystic Falls throws a wrench into the love triangle between Stefan, Elena and Damon, and the other residents of Mystic Falls must choose sides as they fall victim to a new breed of danger. New and unexpected friendships will be forged, allies will become enemies, and hearts will be broken. Stefan and Damon will be forced to face a villain more evil and diabolical than they ever believed possible. And they’ll take their shirts off. Frequently.

Season six will be a season of mystery and shadow. Heaven and Hell have been left in complete disarray since the apocalyptic events of season five. And now, monsters, angels and demons roam across a lawless and chaotic landscape. And so Dean Winchester, who has retired from hunting and sworn never to return, finds himself being pulled back into his old life – pulled back by none other than Sam Winchester, who has escaped from Hell. The two reunite to beat back the rising tide of creatures and demon-spawn, but they quickly realize that neither are who they used to be, their relationship isn’t what it used to be, and that nothing is what it seems.

Market Update: DOW down 243, on EMU concerns, spike in weekly jobless claims…

Someone wake Geithner up and let him know, will ya? Gold down, Oil down, everything is down but Treasury prices…


…Initial claims for state unemployment benefits increased 25,000 to a seasonally adjusted 471,000 in the week ended May 15, the highest level since the week ended April 10, the Labor Department said Thursday.

The surprise jump took a toll on U.S. financial markets, already reeling on concerns Europe’s debt crisis could put a damper on the U.S. economic recovery….

The legislators across the world are scaring the crxp out of the markets:

...“I’m convinced the markets are really out of control. That is why we need really effective regulation, in the sense of creating a properly functioning market mechanism.”

Mr Schaeuble’s sense of urgency is compounded by his own state of health. Just 10 days ago, the 67-year-old survivor of a mentally disturbed would-be assassin was rushed to hospital with an allergic reaction to a new antibiotic as he arrived in Brussels for the emergency meeting of EU finance ministers called to agree on the 750 billion euro rescue package….
