Last week's unemployment numbers came as a sad surprise to those of us who have to work for a living. New jobs were fewer than expected, and the unemployment percentage inched up to 9.2 percent.
If these numbers don't improve soon, I'm afraid President Obama might stand no chance of reelection.
And perhaps he will deserve that fate. After all, when he took office, he chose financial advisors who are sympathetic to Wall Street and corporate America - the folks who cause this economic mess. And, in his constant efforts to placate the GOP, he has seemingly abandoned his base.
On the other hand, if Obama loses in 2012, things will surely go from very bad to much worse.
I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils. Where is the change I can believe in?
