    Obama has predicted unemployment will continue to drop, nearly all voters – 94 per cent – say the economy is in bad shape.

    President Obama’s popularity is plummeting, with more U.S. voters disapproving of his job than approve it, according to a recent poll.More than half of U.S. voters believe he is performing badly in his role as the country's leader compared to 48 per cent last month.

    ‘I think it’s possible,” Obama told CBS’s 60 Minutes in an interview set to air on Sunday.

    It comes after the national unemployment rate fell slightly last month to 8.6 per cent. It had been stuck around 9 per cent between April and October.

    Government can show that there is 5% unemployment and we are debt free as nation if they want,after all it is an election year.:woohoo::lol::lol::woohoo::

    Considering it wasnt supposed to go above 8% with the stimulus, id still consider that a bust.

    Without the stimulus, I believe it would have been much worse. I have no proof of it, but there is no proof to contradict that idea either. Just saying.

    There is little doubt that by election day, obama will announce the unemployment is down to 8%. Since the real unemployment rate is about 17% and the democrats say it's 8.3% it's not a huge stretch to lie about .3% too.

    Givien Obama's track record I reall ythink he should have avoided making a prediction on UE. However, being it's going down when it should be going up tells me he knows the numbers are fake being he is willing to predict a very uncertain future.

    I 100% agree it would have been worse. The problem was never that the stimulus wouldn't "help things" in the short run, it's that it's "help" is false.

    Think of it like this. Why does Obama not just print up enough cash to give every American 100k dollars that can ONLY be used to pay down debt? Talk about INSTANT boom. The debt is down or lower, the banks still get the money.

    Sounds great huh, even better than the genius Obama’s plan of just handing the money strait to rich people… Yet it would never work in the long run as it does not address the real issue, debt was created, and inflation will rise.

    I heard that Bush stopped the US from going into 36 different depressions that Clinton and Democrats caused.

    Prove me wrong.
