Over the Christmas holidays.
Seventeen days on the beach on the gulf course.
You know it doesn't look good.
-- and it doesn't look good.
Well in -- president Obama's always taken this vacation even when he was campaigning for president and I think what you're really gonna see during this time period.
Are the Republicans slugging it out in Iowa New Hampshire that's -- real -- during that time.
I'm sure he's got to abandon the news cycle to the Republicans is just gonna allow them to take it while he sits on the beach.
But seriously I mean it's the look isn't it -- and -- and nobody be grudges are hardworking president -- time off over the holiday period don't begrudge is that.
You know seventeen -- -- in -- why he wouldn't you know.
Well I -- as you know the only people who have tougher numbers and Barack Obama right now at a Republicans in countries that congress will be out.
They're senate -- senate will be out everyone's gone all the actions in Iowa and New Hampshire enjoy the show with what I think.
You know what if Hillary Clinton have been the president the United States of America -- you got your dream you'll wish.
She wouldn't be spending seventeen days in Hawaii now would shift.
I haven't tissue would be taking a holiday vacation put it that way no doubt it.
His attempts eight point 6% unemployment way down from 9% of you gotta be doing high fives you and people in the White House yet happy don't you.
It's welcome news but.
The economy remains the single largest obstacle to Barack Obama's reelection.
And you have to look at Ronald Reagan for the historical perspective here in modern history Ronald Reagan was the last president.
Who is able to be reelected with -- 8% unemployment rate.
Now the question is twofold one does Barack Obama have an 8% unemployment rate when he gets there remains to be seen very tough slug.
To how do people feel about it that's almost more important -- the number itself to people feel like the country's going in the right direction.
Are -- starting to feel better about their own personal circumstances.
And it is Obama scene is a better choice to finish the job than whoever the Republican nominee if that's still tough challenge.
I think -- that there is a problem -- being hidden here and that is it took 3151000.
People to get out of the workforce in order to get the unemployment rate down.
Richard our -- Charles Payne.
All on fox business and the Fox News Channel during of the president's news conference and the president did not use the number he did not -- is.
Eight point 6% he didn't say that -- Which implies he's -- none of us that they'll go right back up again to maybe 9% of the next few months and that is a possibility isn't.
Of course it is and as -- and and Charles now the fact is as the economy starts to get better.
The reality is it is very likely those 3151000.
Plus people who have stopped looking.
Start looking in the unemployment number goes back up again.
So that's why this is more complicated than just unemployment numbers certainly a lot of people know what it is.
But more than anything they're gonna make their decision based on their own personal circumstances depending upon where you live in an and the kind of -- you live right now.
You've probably feel not so great about things -- couple people -- there's a cut of people in this country who feel very good about their circumstances some of these most people remain very very concerned -- -- -- always a pleasure come back and says in real Susan thanks so much money.
