“The 0bamunists will continue to cook the books on unemployment numbers right up to the election...”
I think they are over-estimating the impact of their false unemployment figures; the unemployed (and all of their associates) know better, and the Kenyan Pirate has no solution to deal with the despair of many people that ARE working. A lot of people have been dealing with a lot of crap at their jobs (increased workloads due to layoffs, falling salaries in terms of puchasing power), and they don’t have many ways to express their frustration/anger; unfortunately for Obama, the ballot box is the last one. It happened in 2009 in 3 states he carried (MA, NJ, VA), it happened in even more states he carried in the 2010 mid-terms, and now 2 years later (with things noticeably worse) it should happen on an even larger scale.
I understand why so much of Obama’s posturing in 2011 was geared more towards heading off a Dem primary challenge than attacking Republicans; he ended a lot of Dem’s careers in his first 2 years, and those still standing weren’t willing to take a dive for him.
