    No incumbent president dating to 1956 has lost when unemployment fell over the two years leading up to his re-election contest.

    And none has won when the rate rose.

    Unemployment was 9.8 percent in November 2010.

    Last month, eight months before Election Day, the rate was 8.2 percent.

    With cooked numbers...you bet it is. Fail to mention all the jobs that used to exist? Comapnies that don't exist?

    Food stamps up...amount of taxpayers down...

    Sorry...doesn't cut the mustard. Obama will pay with landslide loss.:eusa_hand:

    Wow, only the left could lower the bar like that and think it's awesome. Then again, they celebrate mediocrity.

    Why do they not count the people who fell of the unemployment because their benefits stopped. Because the numbers would be MUCH MUCH higher. IF you are TOO stupid to know this I feel sorry for you.

    Any administration that would brag about 8% unemployment with 99 weeks paid unemployment benefits must be desperate. When you think about the last administration consider that democrats held the majority in both houses of congress during Bush's last two years and Fannie Mae collapsed while Barney Frank was telling us it was doing fine.

    Presidents are sworn in on Jan 20th, but they are stuck with budget of the previous president until almost the end of the year.

    Obama added the cost of both wars and the true cost of the drugs for votes bill. Worse, the cost of health care for tens of thousands of American maimed in Iraq will also be assigned to Obama by the Republicans. More rotten legacy from that odious party.

    How many have gone on disability or just settled for welfare?

    The real unemployment rate is around 17%, obama can lie about it, but can't run from it.
