This from a Democratic strategist! They're turning on BO... They know he's a losing ticket already.

If the bleak job market doesn’t improve soon, both the country and President Barack Obama will suffer the consequences, says star Democratic strategist James Carville. The country could even end up with citizen uprisings, the man who played a key role in much of former President Bill Clinton’s political success told radio talker Don Imus in an interview simulcast on Fox Business.

Carville bluntly told Imus: “You know, look — this is a humanitarian — you know, you’re smart enough to see this . . . People, you know, if it continues, we’re going to start to see civil unrest in this country. I hate to say that, but I think it’s imminently possible.”

The unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent in May, while the economy generated only 54,000 jobs — and statistics indicate that most of them were for starter positions at fast-food giant McDonald’s.

“If 54,000 new jobs a month is the new standard, it will be a very bad 2012 for Obama,” Carville said.

To be sure, the job gains in previous months were higher, and that trend could resume, he said. In addition, Republicans don’t have too much in the way of effective job programs, either, he argues.

In any case, “This is gruesome on people,” Carville said. “It’s a humanitarian crisis of the first magnitude. It’s a terrible thing happening to people’s lives.”

For middle-aged people who have been out of work for say 18 months and are providing for a family, “you’re not same person,” he said. “This is the real tragedy of unemployment. Even if the economy comes back, the prospect of a lot of people finding jobs is not good.”

There won't be civil unrest until uncle sam slows the entitlement spending. And I don't see that hapening until the US dollar breaks for real. Who knows how long that will take. But it won't be until after the next election. The American people won't let the politicians slow spending in any significant way -- ever. it will just break all at once. :down:

Sorry. Civil unrest in this nation would require a little more than frustration with finding a job.
:agree:

If it didn't happen during the bankster bailouts, it's not happening without a major event, dollar crash, food shortage, etc. People now days are too dumb to realize Mickey D's isn't a career for 80% of their employees, and Wal-Mart is getting to be considered a high-end job.. :laughing:
