Unemployment Rate Falls to Lowest Since February of ’09

In December of last year the unemployment rate fell to 8.5 percent, the lowest its been in almost three years. President Obama gave the country a scare when the unemployment rate wasn’t making any promising declines in the past couple of years but it seems his policies are starting to have a positive effect. This outstanding decrease in unemployment might just give him a needed boost in his approval rating. If Obama keeps going the way he is, he might be a contender in the election. His moderate success in Iraq, tax cuts, and strategic arms reduction treaty with Russia have been a great benefit to politics in the United States. Those are only a few of some of the interesting accomplishments he has made as president. I myself never thought I would be impressed with Obama, but he hasn’t been a total failure as president believe it or not. Barack Obama did have a shaky start but in the past year he has shined. I still would vote republican but I have to encourage people to take a look at how he has done and admit that the he has done good as president. In the upcoming election we might be encouraged to look for someone like Obama but not Obama himself.

    If the unemployment trend continues downward through November, Obama will have a strong case even if it’s not as low as he would like it to be. His argument could be that we’re on the right track and that replacing him would throw us off this track. On the other hand, if unemployment jumps back up (especially in the jobs report released right before the election), Obama will have a tough sell and the GOP candidate (probably Romney) can make the case that Obama’s policies aren’t working and it’s time to try something new. Unemployment dipping below 8% would be great news for Obama.
