This. The economy will rebound nicely to early-2008 levels, just in time for the election in November.

I thought about that but, as the other poster wrote, that figure is so manipulated that it's become a running joke.

Do we predict the government's version of the rate or the "real" rate, taking into account the workers who have quit trying to find jobs? The former is about half of the latter.

That is a serious decline. I guess you're expecting a real economic drop in Europe this year?

But I don't see how oil could go that high and the other markets not explode as well.

Yes, but one that is offset by domestic growth and growth in emerging markets.
