    Usually - an incumbant president with 8% unemployment ( more like 15%) - would be down double-digets.

    When will the American people wise-up?

    Usually, an incumbent President doesn't inherit an economy that's losing 750,000 jobs a month and experiencing - 5% GDP growth a quarter.

    The economy is now gaining jobs every month and GDP is growing every quarter.

    you actually have to have a better candidate against him. so far no one's seen that.

    and most people are smart enough to know he didn't create this nightmare and has a congress they dislike more... who they DO blame for obstructing the ability to fix things.

    just saying.

    Right Wing Nuts: We want to paint unemployment numbers as bad for Obama but you're not allowed to remind everyone that the greatest economic disaster in 80 years happened a couple of months before Obama got elected.

    Obama asked for this economy...he knew what it was when he was running in 2008. He "promised" so many things to make it better. Is it better for you? Not for me! The only people it's been good for are the moochers and the people Obama has paid off with OUR TAX DOLLARS (Can you say "stimulus"?).

    Obama OWNS this economy now, there's no logical way anyone should be blaming Bush for anything anymore! I get so sick of the word "inherited"....it's a cop-out!

    No, the greatest economic disaster happened after he was sworn in.
    The recession was going to be a short sharp event that would lead to robust recovery. Instead Obama and the Dums didnt let a crisis go to waste and rammed through a bunch of crappy programs that have retarded the economy for 3 years. Three years of unemployment higher than the day the man took office. Three years of shrinking household net worth. Three years of stagnating growth, where there is growth at all. Three years of increasing gov't dependence and ballooning deficits.
    You want to say that isn't the fault of Obama? What did he do to stop it? Nothing. He was instrumental in getting it done.
    Obama is the worst president since Robert Mugabe.

    If about 3.5% of the voters had swung McCain's way during Obama's 'landslide' victory, we would have a different POTUS right now.

    A lot more than 3.5% of the voters have changed their mind about Obama and his ability to stop the sea levels from rising and to heal the earth.
