I guess the job issue will come down to who the voters think have the best chances of improving the issue. Here in CT our Unemployment rate is above 9%, but we are solidly blue. Historically Dems have done better on job creation. I really don't think jobs will hurt Obama much and probably not at all.
The jobs issue is a biggie. Today there are fewer Americans working than there were 31 years ago. This was the last year of the Jimmy Carter economic depression in 1981. Most of these jobs went away on Obama's watch, not during Bush's or Clinton's Presidential Administration. Remember that in 1981 the population was almost 80,000,000 fewer than it is today. So the number of jobs that has been lost on Obama's watch is even greater than what the raw numbers show.
But this suits the New Democrat Party's leadership fine because the leadership is mostly composed of elites who managed to made it out of their parents' basement. These elites don't now and never will make or create anything. So in that respect Obama is correct when he says, "You didn't create that..."
However the New Democrat Party leadership does have a need for an army of nannies, servants, serfs, and peasants in the form of organic farmers, toe nail painters, greengrocers, dog walkers, massage therapist, bicycle repairmen, and other menial laborers to define the non lives of the Democrat Party's current sordid leadership. I am sorry but this Democrat Party isn't your mothers' or your fathers' Democrat Party, it resembles King George's III's Tory party more than FDR's New Deal party.
Only an Obama Democrat can call 91,000 new hires in August, verses 119,000 lost jobs, not to mention 380,000 more people who gave up looking for work last month a victory for the working man. But that is exactly the news that greeted Obama last week when he was renominated in Charlotte NC. And if the past is any indication the 91,000 new hires in August will be "REFIGURED" downward by 50% like previous hiring figures were lowered when no one was looking. Even Bill Clinton told the convention in Charlotte that things would be better if he was in charge, meaning Bill being the power behind the throne in a Hillary Presidency. Obama and Joe Biden are to dumb to get it. Or maybe Obama does get it and that is why he didn't want Hillary as his vice president, it is Obama's life insurance policy.
Prediction: If Obama gets it he will not reappoint Hillary Secretary of State, forcing her to live out the next 4 years in obscurity, a death sentence to a politician like Hillary, and an ego killer for her husband Bill.
