  2. History can offer many pieces of info to be presented and then utilized to suggest possible scenarios, but as to the real outcome, human nature is somewhat like predicting what the markets will do–only a guess. What about those who present the S&P 500’s performance in the month of January in an election year as indication whether the 500 will be up or down for the rest of the year? Their positionsays when it is up for the month the info demonstrates it will be positive for the remainder of the year and it has been accurate 86% of the time since 1945. But when the month is down, it’s accuracy for predicting the 500’s direction has dropped to 56%accuracy. Guess when people are influenced by fear it becomes more difficult to determine outcomes.
    Seems to suggest ones instincts and experience play a great part of discerning what will really happen and then it still is a guess. Must be what creates the excitement!

    If obama gets re-elected, it will be because of the (lack ) of republican choices. “The lesser of two evils”

    Apparemtly, the Democrats think that if they say the economy and nmemployuent rates are getting better loud enough and often enough it will become the truth. And they may have some justification for this idea. After all, that’s how they drove the economy into the toilet in the first place. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to have grasped that destroying an economy by claiming the sky is falling is a lot easier than re-building an economy in ruins. Just saying it’s getting better isn’t likely to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

    Wouldn’t it make more sense to compare pecentage of jprivate sector employess vs the adult population in 2008, vs the same proportion in 2012? We then would know how many jobs have been lost or gained and not the numbers we get from BLS games.
