is less than 16,000,000,000,000. The left thinks that tomorrow's debate is only going to focus on one number, but there are lots of numbers, like 63.6% (the labor force participation rate, which was 65.7 when The One took office), 14.7% (the real unemployment rate, U-6) and $90 billion (the amount Obama used to 'pick losers'), and those are just the ones reflecting Obama's domestic policy train wreck. His foreign policy train wreck has its own issues (at least two involving cover-ups), not to mention the fact that Mr. Hopenchange is now peevish and petulant. His anticipated 'aggressiveness' may play well with the MSNBC crowd and its audience of at least 5,000, but it runs the risk of making him look as desperate as he must now be to the independent voters. The problem for Obama is, well, the last four years, which is the only time in his life when he actually has a record tied to him. It's got to be unsettling to be told that none of your great ideas work.

47% isn't going to carry the day, and neither is Barack One-Note.
