PITTSBURGH — Disappointing job growth jolted the presidential campaign four months before Election Day, and the candidates quickly put their vastly different views on display, underscoring the economy as the central issue between President Barack Obama and Republican rival Mitt Romney.
Obama sought consolation from hiring figures that showed at least some job growth still under way, calling them a step in the right direction and pleading with voters to stick with him. Romney spoke of misery across the nation, warned Obama would do nothing but deepen it and addressed a disgruntled middle class by saying, This kick in the gut has got to end.
Overall, the stand-pat nature of the new data was not a game-changer in the close presidential contest — one in which the presidents approval ratings hover around or slightly below 50 percent and he retains a slight lead, if any, over Romney.
And while no president since the Great Depression has sought re-election with unemployment as high as it is now, Obama has proven to be a resilient campaigner while Romney has come under conservative criticism, accused of playing it too safe and muddling his message.
The lackluster jobs report showed a net of only 80,000 jobs created in June and an unemployment rate unchanged at 8.2 percent. The
Credit scores are a lot more important today than they ever were in the past. Having a low credit score means higher interest rates on mortgages, car loans and credit cards. Potential employers, landlords, cell phone providers and insurers also frequently check the credit history of applicants.
You can find a temporary fix by comparing secured credit cards at MoneySupermarket, but keep in mind that rescuing a low credit score is a lot like losing weight. It’s going to take some time and effort.

Bangkok Commercial Asset Management (BAM) has delayed its listing on the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) from this year to the first quarter of 2013.
The Financial Institutions Development Fund (FIDF), BAM’s parent company, wants to make sure the subsidiary is ready to go public.
The search for a financial adviser will be delayed as well.
“Earlier, we thought we could list on the Stock Exchange of Thailand in September,” said BAM president Sumate Maneewattana.
He said that BAM, wholly owned by the FIDF, has been requested to slow the process to ensure it is ready to become a public company.
“We’re fine with the new schedule. It gives us more time to accumulate assets.

Concerns about the global economy, including the euro debt crisis and falling stocks, are weighing on overall sentiment and prompting companies to “hunker down,” Deloitte concluded, based on the survey conducted in the last two weeks of May.
The percentage of CFOs expressing optimism dropped to 39 per cent in the second quarter from 63 per cent in the first three months of the year.
“Companies are playing it a little more cautious and a little more conservative as they continue to watch see what comes out of a world that remains volatile,” Trevor Nakka, co-leader of Deloitte Canada’s CFO program, said in an interview.
That’s causing companies to ratchet back on capital expenditures, research and development, marketing as well and mergers-and-acquisitions.
Many CFOs also recognize they’ll be hard-pressed to continue boosting profits through cost-cutting alone – the main source of profits since the recession.
“We’re nearing a point where there are not as many gains that can be made,” Mr. Nakka pointed out.
Volatility on European markets has created short-term opportunities for investors while the local sharemarket flounders around six month lows, analysts say.
CMC Markets chief market analyst Ric Spooner said the euro zone crisis had a “silver lining” with opportunities opening up for trading in offshore indices, currencies, oil, gold and derivatives.
“This has been a good time for short-term traders who had good strategies accompanied by good risk management,” Mr Spooner told a briefing in Sydney on Wednesday.
While many Australian traders were steering clear of the local markets during business hours, others were following offshore markets after work, he said.
CMC Australia and New Zealand Head Louis Cooper said sharper movements on overseas markets had led to an increase in trades at his online trading house.
“I don’t think people see many opportunities,” Mr Cooper said.
“The index here has really underperformed in the first quarter of this year.”
Despite the stronger economic conditions Australia, the local sharemarket continued to do poorly against US and European markets.
“We are seeing a lot of people staying out at the moment and also interest rates make staying in cash very attractive.
“I think it’s going to be another six to 12 months before we see the kind of volumes we were seeing two or three years ago.”
He said his firm had recently attracted active customers who trade online each day amid a backdrop of uncertainty in Europe.
“I think that’s coming to a head at the moment.
