 President Obama is accusing Republicans of pushing what he describes as unworkable economic policies, such as voucher1 tax cuts. Five months before the elections, President urged the GOP to back his agenda which he says has helped bolster2 the private sector3 and the US economy in general.

Job growth in this recovery has been stronger than the one following the last recession a decade ago. But the hole we have to fill is much deeper and the global aftershocks are much greater. That’s why we’ve got to keep on pressing with actions that further strengthen the economy.
Republican Mitt4 Romney says the President’s comments prove that he is out of touch. Campaigning in Council Bluffs5 Iowa today, the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee6 told voters the economy is in bigger trouble than President Obama cares to admit.
He said the private sector is doing fine. Is he really that out of touch? I think he is defining what it means to be detached and out of touch with the American people.
Romney also called on the democrats7 to pay attention to voters’ voices in Wisconsin where Republican governor Scott Walker overcame a recall election that was triggered by anger over his move to limit collective bargaining.
All lies on what’s happening in Europe and its never ending debt crisis are so it seems, Spain says it’s still a waiting result of international audits8 which are expected to reveal just how in debt Spanish banks are. As Lauren Frayer reports from Madrid officials they’re denying reports that its bailout request could be imminent(即将发生).
Spain’s Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria says the government is determined9 to wait for auditors10assessment11 of how much money it’ll take to bolster Spanish banks weighed down by bad real estate debt. We’re working with the IMF and independent auditors on the amount our financial system needs for a complete cleanup. She told reporters after a weekly cabinet meeting. Santamaria said those audits would be finished in mid-June. She denied reports a request for European aid could come Saturday and said she was unaware12 of even any discussion about the issue. For NPR news, I’m Lauren Frayer in Madrid.
A UN monitoring and human rights team has reached to Syrian village where antigovernment activist13 say government forces massacred about 80 people on Wednesday. NPR’s Deborah Amos is there, well, she says she is seeing severe damage to buildings, body parts in one house and evidence that something terrible had happened.
The people who have come to their testimonies14 to the UN and to talk to the reporters are very nervous. Their faces are covered; they have sunglasses on; no names; they’re young. They say that they came from neighboring village. They say they * it is certainly counted to the government, a count which is that it was done by terrorists. NPR’s Deborah Amos, in Syria.

Stunning15 news today, on the eve of Horse Racing16’s Belmont Stakes, I’ll Have Another, the horse trying to become a first Triple Crown winner since 1978 has been scratched from the race and retired17 from racing. More details now from NPR’s Tom Goldman.
I’ll Have Another’s trainer Doug O'Neill said his horse had some swelling18 yesterday and today after good training sessions. A vet19 determined the horse had a start of tendinitis in his left front leg. O’Neill said at a press conference, it’s not necessarily a career ending injury.
You know you give him 3 to 6 months and start back with him, but obviously, he’s done so much that it was unanimous that to retire him.
The announcement is a huge disappointment to racing fans hoping to see the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winning horse claim the third leg of the Triple Crown Saturday at Belmont Park. A blow is well to a racing industry dealing20 with horse doping and other controversies21. Tom Gold, NPR news.
