Obama's persistent 9% plus unemployment rate is his biggest obstacle to re election.



So, SP, at what % would you vote for Obama? Give us a "resonable" unemployment number and we'll hold you to it.

It slid to 8% yesterday.....

The post recessionary umemployment rate in Greece is 21%. In Spain, 24%. So it's not like "everyone else recovered but we didn't because we had Obama as our president". Quite the contrary. Compared to most of Europe, we're doing fabulous.

Obama's current uneployment rate only trails Bush's final number by one percent, by the way, so would you vote Obama at 7%?

But, please, by all means, give us a number, a magic number. And if you know Mitt's plan to do better, let us know, because Mitt himself has been rather sparse with giving numbers that add up. Rather odd as a "good businessman" like himself should be familiar with balancing spreadsheets.
