not to say it’s all bullshit or anything. but remember the timing of the 2008 financial collapse? I mean people were actually digging Palin/McCain. If the election were in September, McCain’s gambling could’ve won. But when the financial sector self destructed, Obama and the Dems just looked better on jobs, and Obama won.
2012 election. Now incumbent presidents and unemployment numbers have a relationship. A political science theory says when an unemployment number is below a certain value, the incumbent wins by default holding everything else steady.
So hearing news about how the DOW rose after Obama’s speech, [not Michelle’s or Bill’s] made me think back to the 2008 election. Like wouldn’t it be some shit if the unemployment rate decreased by .2 points every so often to by mid October, it’s like 7.3ish? People are like, oh economy is getting better, we can trust Obama, and all that stuff. Just the timing of shit makes me a little suspect about shit.
I could be wrong…
