“Capitalism is the astounding belief that the most wickedest of men will do the most wickedest of things for the greatest good of everyone.” John Maynard Keynes
Not to mention, I think it's a fantasy to believe that campainging on, "I dropped the unemployment rate 1%", is going to have a positive effect.

The real issue is the moving of the goal posts. We should be shooting for 5-6%, not 8%. This filling of an Obama campaign promise is total horse****, since he promised to maintain it at that rate or lower. Achieving it on Election Day is not maintaining anything, except a scam.

However, the biggest difference is that Reagan pursued an effective solution to the problem that he faced. Obama has only made his situation worse. Obama needs to be thrown out of office, and as far as possible, before this year is out.
