After reading around for a while:
The numbers are wrong! They can't be that low! That means fewer people are suffering and less support for us! How in the world could people want the nation to suffer? If the figure had been over 8% or even gone up, they would have jumped for joy, while thousands suffered?
The claim is the numbers are cooked. Right. Why not until now? There's a pretty steady decline in the graph since the first year. Also, the last political appointee to the commission that determines the rates left not long ago... he had been appointed by the War President, GW himself. Also, isn't this data, which has till now been over 8% for many months, the source data for a large part of Mittens' attacks? The data is only good when it helps us; as soon as it starts helping Obama, it's cooked.
Chicago politics. The Right wants the WH, to be president over the entire country. That includes Chicago. Way to alienate a large city, where there are also likely GOPpers. Ring bells of 47%...or "real Amerika"? The GOP enjoys alienating large portions of the populace in fell swoops.
Many of the critics claim to be good Christians; Romney is supposedly a bishop. I would hope that the words ushering forth from them would be more positive and supportive of people and less derogatory and critical. In theory, Christians should be positive and try to spread the love... to raise people up.
The president didn't do anything to change the jobless rate. Private businesses do that. But Romney claims he will create 12 million jobs. By enlarging the government?

Things are getting better after a hard time. That is good news. The bad year was Obama's first, when the world was still in free fall after the reign of Bush. There has been improvement ever since. The job's not done yet, but things are getting better. That is good.
McConnell said his job was to make sure Obama served only one term. Last I checked, his job was to serve the American people and work as a part of one branch of the government (of which the president is another) to serve the people as a whole, not his party.
How closely did Boehner work with Obama to improve the lives of Americans? The US's credit rating was reduced... why?

Anybody got data for: which states are the poorest, which have the highest unemployment, which have the lowest number of insured, which have the lowest number of high school graduates, which take the most in government handouts, which states are primarily Republican or Democrat? Usually, these graphs are pretty telling.
