Thread Name: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Subject: RE: BS: Disaster for the Democrats?
Sorry, Ron, I didn't address your statement: "President Obama pointed out that if (key word) the unemployment rate had been, say 5%, instead of 8.6%, voters would have been much more receptive to his other programs."

But the unemployment rate WAS NOT, say, 5%, it WAS 9.6% so that's a meaningless statement.

Old Texas saying: The dog would have caught the rabbit if he hadn't stopped to pee. If, is a mighty, mighty word.
