    Now that is a good question. I think it is entirely possible, but I think it would be really hard. If the September jobs report shows unemployment over 8, I would call Romney the favorite to win in November, barring any other major changes between now and then. If it does drop under 8 by then, Romney is probably in trouble.

    most Americans are smart enough to understand that Obama really isn't at fault for this, as the European debt-crisis and China's reaction to it, is playing a large part in all of this.

    Yes. Romney is such a lousy candidate that Obama would have to royally **** up in order for Romney to win.The republicans handed Obama 2012.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Attached is an interesting article about why US unemployment will remain so high. If true it could explain why Obama's attitude to reign in corporate America quickly changed after being elected POTUS.

    What a hack. Other than spew blame in as many diverse and unrelated directions as possible, this moron is clueless, yet wants to sell us a (unpublished?) book. He cites the housing bubble, the "greedy" corporations, U.S. trade policy and corrupt politicians ALL as "the primary" cause of the slow U.S. economic recovery and the associated high unemployement. This guy is simply a moron, trying to sell a book. His (only?) "answer" was to blame China and impose tariffs on their goods which is weak at best. Of the many markets that are "depressed" in the U.S., trade with China is invloved in but a tiny fraction of them.

    I predict, out of desperation, that Obama will start a war with Iran, to "unite" the country, keep the economy off of page one and get the folks all riled up with the usual chants of USA, USA, USA...

    What? Obama, the same Obama, that blames Bush for having used the "Obama" tax rates to ruin the economy? The same Obama that was going to close GITMO, try the 9/11 terrorists in NYC, cut the defict in half, and keep unemployment "well below" 8% using "stimulus" and create (or save) a massive number of U.S. jobs? The same Obama that was for open and honest gov't like he showed us with Solyndra, the XL pipeline, the Fast & Fuzzy cover-up and the GSA Las Vegas parties? The same Obama that saw no red or blue America just a wonderful America, that now tries to describe the GOP as anti-everything? The same Obama that is for gays, women, blacks, latinos, illegal aliens, the working man, teachers, firefighters, auto workers, the little guy and any other specific voting block he needs at the moment? The same Obama that has not had a budget passed since he took office? The same Obama that CONSTANTLY fund raises from the very rich and greedy folks that he blames for not paying their "fair share", yet that he somehow will not tax any higher?

    Oh man!

    Same old, same old.

    When things get rough, protectionism.

    America tried that before...it was called the Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smoot%E...ley_Tariff_Act

    It started a global trade war.

    In 1930, the year it passed, the unemployment rate was 8.7%.

    Two years later it was 23.6%.

    What was the US unemployment rate in 1930

    What a big help that was...not.
