Looking for a handy Obama-failure counter?

Hey, guess what?

There’s an app for that.

An “Obama Clock” app is jockeying for position with National Geographic’s World Atlas atop the iTunes app store’s reference best-seller list, partly because conservatives are eager to monitor President Barack Obama’s skidding approval numbers and shrinking calendar, says the app’s designer.

Liberals don’t like the app because it shows Obama’s numbers trending down, said Jeremy Ross, even though his app just publishes publicly available data.

Just picked up a copy myself at the Apple Store for my iPad 2:

…I figure that it’ll come in handy, although I don’t really expect the unemployment numbers to change all that much until we get a functional adult in the White House again.  Still, as a snapshot of failure this is pretty good stuff.

    From what I gather, business investment is being stiffled not only by what Mr. Obama is doing, but the fear that he will continue to do it. I think we may see investment trend up, and therefore unemployment trend down, when a functional adult is ELECTED, rather than waiting until he actually takes his rightful place on January 20. It may not seem like much this far out, but it moves the projected start of the recovery up by eleven weeks. I’m no expert, or course, so this may just be wishful thinking.

    The stock market’s behavior on the day after the election ought, at least, be interesting. A jump up on a GOP win seems likely, given the last several years.

  • The Stock Market factors events like this *WAY* ahead of time. In 2008 it started to tank around June, not so much because of the banks, but because they were waiting for the likelihood that Obama would be president in 6 months.
