    CU analysis: Romney wins presidency because of economy - The Denver Post

    It looks like the fat lady is warming up for a Romney victory in November. And no one--and I mean no one can accuse this of being a right wing report--this is coming from the University of Colorado.

    It's pretty bad when you have to go back 80 years ago to make a comparison--lol. The article is right--I am 59 years old and really can't remember a President getting reelected with 8.3% unemployment--real unemployment at 11% if you count those that have run out of unemployment benefits and are no longer counted in the stats. The last time we had that kind of unemployment in this country--this happened.
