Our Dear Leader's political advisor, said people aren't likely to consider our nation's unemployment rate as a factor in the 2012 election.
Ian Swanson wrote about this "don't worry, be happy" news in The Hill yesterday:
My favorite passage in the article:
Plouffe said, according to Bloomberg. “People won’t vote based on the unemployment rate, they’re going to vote based on: ‘How do I feel about my own situation? Do I believe the president makes decisions based on me and my family?’ ”

My friends chimed in with:
If that is the way they really see things then I say be careful what you wish for, you just might get it.
