  •  Obama faces U3/U6 #s that normally kill incumbents (8+ / 0-)

    The ongoing housing crisis further exacerbates a still-shaky situation.  Any kind of downturm arising from a Euro zone collapse would put Obama in perilous territory.

    Some men see things as they are and ask why. I dream of things that never were and ask why not?

    •  Like it's Obama's fault. The houseing market was (6+ / 0-)

      GWB's.  i remember Greenspan and Bush on TV telling people they had to have no money down.  owning a house was like renting a place.  i remember Greenspan telling people they should get out of their 30 year mortgages and go for a balloon payment......

      Unfortunately obama and the Dems don't know how to message.  They are afraid to really go after Bush/Cheney and now Romney: the business men who could not run governments.  the other President who was a business man was Hoover.  We all know how that turned out. You can't run a government like a business.  A government is not for profit and loss.

      Also the campaign need to go get a tape of Senator Hatch who said:  "We never paid for anything under Bush - that was our plan."  They need to use it in every house and senate and presidential race."  Then the question should be why do you want to re-elect romney and bush's former staff?
