    Democrats will say that unemployment has dropped another two percentage points and we are in recovery.

    It's not about what people say about the economy but how voters experience what is happening in the economy.

    I think Obama is basing his hopes on what he has in opposition

    Interestingly, I said much the same in another thread a couple of days ago... and was dismissed by the left. How individuals perceive a 'recovery' is at least as important - if not more important - than any actual data.

    In a recovery where the data is strong, the perception of the recovery is also strong. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on one's perspective)... that is not the case in 2012.

    Wait until it's just one republican and the VP pick running against obama. The fire storm hasn't even begun yet. obama is going to get hit with shock & awe when the campaign against HIM starts.

    He doesn't stand a chance.

    See my sig line...

    You're right... because until this starts coming down, there is no true recovery.

    Obama is basing his hopes on the same thing that won him the 2008 election, outspending his opponent. In the last election, Obama outspent McCain by a ratio of 4 to 1 throughout the campaign and by 5 to 1 during the last month. If the Republicans are able to put together a war chest equal to Obama's this time, any one of the top candidates will have a decent chance of beating him.
