Look, I genuinely hope I'm wrong. If the economy were growing at 3-5% with job creation regularly in the 200,000+ minimum range, I'd probably still be against he President but only because I have a different vision for where things like entitlements/foreign policy should go moving forward. I'd be much less adamant, even though the metrics above are really the bare minimum of what this country needs right now.

I underlined it in post #67. The point there was about the 2012 rates overall, not a monthly change.At this pace of job creation, the unemployment rate should be barely drifting lower given underlying demographic trends.
