    Default Obama may keep his job even if you lose yours

    But a high unemployment rate, by itself, isn’t necessarily a problem for an incumbent president, according to Ray Fair, a Yale University economist who has analyzed the impact of the economy on presidential elections back to 1916.

    “What the data show is that it’s the change in the economy, primarily in the year of the election, that matters — not the level,” he said.
    Bottom Line - Obama may keep his job even if you lose yours

    If Obama gets re-elected with unemployment between 10 and 13%. This country deserves what it gets.

    I don't wanna hear any *****ing 5 to 10 years from now when the bill comes due. And we end like Greece.

    Obama is following the European model. Too bad socialism finally caught up to Europe.

    Obama will be a lot better then Mit. Mit is all for big business, All republicans are against unions. Just look at your olé' pale Regan he ruined the freight industry with deregulation, destroying great jobs. Unions are the best we have as a working man. If it was not for unions you would not be able to vote on the pay cut ABF wanted to shove down your throat. It would just come automatically. Plus all the perks that the non union company's are missing out on. At FedEx freight if you want to get paid for your drop and hook you have to take your lunch, and if you crash they automatically fire you and good luck getting your job back. With a union its fair, and everything is carefully considered not just on the company's side but the members side to.

    Seems to me Obama is the one for big business. If they fail, he bails them out. A real Conservative republican well let that business fail.

    And all the deregulation of trucking did, was show how weak unions have become. They only they could organize companies was thru market control by the government.
