President Obama's job creation, in one chart. But Motor Head already knows this.

    Link

    JFK banged Marilyn Monroe repeatedly, dealt with the Cuban Missile Crisis (badly, but he dealt with it), had his brain turned into pudding, and still created 2.4 million more jobs in 34 months than President Obama did in 40 months. Which wouldn't be bad if the numbers were 100 million jobs vs. 97.6 million jobs, but they're 2.5 million jobs vs. 100,000 jobs. (See the blog from which the chart was taken and read the comments section to get a better understanding of how the numbers were generated.)

    And yes, I got the link from Motor Head's girl.

    This isn't fair. President Obama hasn’t had a full term yet and he came into office in the middle of a recession. He came in the middle of a recession that was worse in terms of job loss than anything any other president in history has had to deal with. He probably split those job losses about half-and-half with George W Bush, so it’s not as bad as it could have been for him.

    Unemployment has been higher every day since Barry has been POTUS than it was when W was POTUS

    Most of the problem is that George W started the shitball rolling, and the current POTUS just can't wrangle cats well enough to get things back to where it should be.

    I'll remember all of this when Romney can't pull the economy out of the shit, either, and the usual suspects say it's all Obama's fault.

    With his new tax plan that cuts millionaires' taxes on the backs of the middle class. How can that go wrong!

    Maybe because he's actually accomplished something in his life. The fact that Barry is gone will be good for at least 1.5% less unemployment. That's before Romney even does a single thing. He could get up there and sleep all day and create more jobs than Obama. Businesses have absolutely NO confidence in the current regime. That's a major factor in the job market right now.

    Is this report damning enough to turn the polls around? Romney is getting trounced right now. Current polling suggests a pretty decisive Obama victory at 332 - 206.

    Care to tell us where you got these numbers? The best numbers I can find right now are 247-191 with 100 toss ups. Even the New York Times, which seems to have given every single toss up to Obama (surprise surprise) has it at 297-240.

    No president has EVER been re-elected with the economy in the shape it's in now. Ever.

    Straight percentage polling by Rasmussen has Romney up by 5 percentage points. Suggesting these other polls are heavily oversampling blue states. Another shocker.

    270towin.com has a pretty cool interactive map that leaves the toss up states blank. Here's how I think it will go down in November.

    I think we're looking at the same numbers from RCP. I just clicked the button that said "No Toss Ups", which to your point gives most of them (except NC) to Obama. The breakdown of the Toss-Ups:

    NV: Obama +5.3
    CO: Obama +3.0
    IA: Obama +1.3
    OH: Obama +4.8
    VA: Obama +2.8
    NC: Romney +0.8
    FL: Obama +1.4
    NH: Obama I didn't write down the margin.

    Romney's got a lot of work to do. Those are pretty big gaps in NV and OH. Romney needs at least one of those to win. If Obama gets them both he wins even if Romney takes all the other battleground states.

    Romney obviously has a lot of work to do, but it will come down to Ohio again. I think he takes it.

    Actually I'll make a correction here to my map. Obama will also get one of Nebraska's votes. 274-264 Romney.

    No worries...I'm sure the Obama campaign will demand Romney release copies of his last 10 cell phone bills so they and the media can break it apart and get all fauxraged over the amount of 4G data he used up.

    That's a bad sign for any incumbent, 3 months prior to an election. Especially for an incumbent like Barack Obama, who takes the claim as the charismatic democrat who everyone in Hollywood, blacks, and some media adore.

    I'm just afraid of seeing what will happen if Romney does win. I think this is the time where they don't go without a fight.

    You mean Riots, or Obama trying to block the results through shenanigans?

    Think Bush v Gore on steroids. The riots would be a last resort, and we know the Occupy thugs don't work in cold weather.

    I can't take any of these maps seriously. Especially when Romney hasn't even named a VP yet. With the state of the economy (today's job numbers for one), and the fact that there is no way Obama is going to get the same amount of turnout in Independents and even some conservatives giving him a shot in 08...I think it's Obama who has the most work to do. Problem is, he's an incumbent who can't run on his record. All he can do is really attack Romney's character and make a bunch of bullshit about how many jobs he created and how he wants to make the rich pay more and middle class pay less. Then again, it's still way too early and Romney hasn't even named VP yet. We've also got debates to look forward to, and the 30 minute Obama infomercial the day before the election.

    Obama can't run on his record, but look how effective his attacks are. His minions eat them up without question.

    Now you can see why Romney is not releasing any more tax records. Either don't release them and catch hell for releasing only two years worth or release them and have scores of dem strategists combing through them and trying to find anything they can manipulate or twist that their zombies will eat up and spread.

    Exactly. I also like how Romney told Dirty Harry to put up or shut up about it.

    Romney will be lucky to make it through the convention intact. We might see Perry or Bachmann decide that the time is ripe for some real leadership and challenge for the nomination.
