    Obama has no chance at re-election if unemployment remains above 9%

    Alarmist hyperbole like the above is at best unhelpful.  9% wouldn't happen to be a totally arbitrary number somebody from the pundit class pulled right out of their ass, would it?  What about 8.9%?  What about 8, or 7% ?  Is there a linear relationship between an out of context statistic and the President's reelection chances?  BTW, such assertions carry some perhaps unintended freight: that you obviously believe a plurality of your fellow citizens are too stupid for the franchise.

    People are fungible. You can have them here or there. - Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, responding
