Where does the US rank? 4

Where did the US rank in 2010? 5

How about 2009? 6

OMG! If we let Obama have a second term, the US will be the best place in the world to do business.

Tea Partiers Arise. We must not let this stand.

That's a rather simplistic analysis. Without the corresponding data and the methodology it's rather impossible to determine if we're in fact improving or merely getting worse at a slower clip than those we surpassed. It's like crime stats... if two cities switch places is it because one got safer while the other more dangerous, both got safer but one got a lot safer while the other only a little, one got safer but the other stopped taking certain crime reports or started counting them a different way, residents suddenly stopped reporting certain crimes because they felt it was a waste of time, etc.? There's no context there, so your assumption doesn't stand to reason, nor does it mean what you are suggesting it means even if it does (theoretically all but the top country could be going in the wrong direction but all the rest could overtake us, etc.)

What's missing, of course (besides the context) is what exactly Team 0bama has done to improve our business climate and/or what he has proposed to improve it in the future (or keep it improving.) That would be the part of the argument where he's polling very badly, for good reason IMHO. Arguably other countries are in a worse position, but that doesn't make ours good or his handling of it anything less than embarrassing.
