  •  It's still the economy (0+ / 0-)

    that will determine the outcome of 2012.  All the number crunching and micro-targeting in the world won't get Dems elected in 2012 unless there is significant improvement in the economy over the next year.

    •  Obama's student loan (1+ / 0-)

      bill is going into effect in 2012.

      The war spending cuts (pentagon cuts) are going through. (obama is vetoing any circuventing of those and he is staying strong there).  

      Black Friday shopping sales shattered a record in terms of profit and consumer spending.

      Jobless claims are down from their elevations earlier in the year.

      There is some progressive happening :)

        I changed by not changing at all, small town predicts my fate, perhaps that's what no one wants to see. -6.38, -4.15

      •  US voters are the final arbiters (0+ / 0-)

        They'll know how much their own lives have improved, vis a vis the economy, since 2009.

        Yes, there have been some improvements, but have they been enough to make a real difference?  

        Obama still has many options available through the power of executive orders.  There's still a great deal he can do to boost employment by bringing jobs back to the US.  Let's hope he decides to use them in time for voters to see a real benefit.
