    The low unemployment rate is because of people dropping out of the labor force at a very high rate. Without this phenomenon the unemployment rate would be much higher.

    Additionally, of course, there is the fact that we are running deficits of 10% of GDP just to keep this sorry state of affairs in a stable state.

    The US economy is on life-support. Obama has done what he can to stabilize it in the short term. He did a better job than the Republicans would have, or did in Bush's case. But let's not fool ourselves into thinking we're not in a desperate situation. Because we are, and it becomes more so every day.
