    I would call that an out of context number since there was a net job gain with that increase vs a net job loss with the lower percentage change. From 2001 to 2009 there was a net job gain and a growth in labor force. since Obama took office there has been a net job loss and a declining labor force. That to a liberal is called a success?

    The amount of increase, or decrease, of the U3 unemployment rate after 30 months in office...




    Nixon +76%
    Bush +48%
    Eisenhower +38%
    Ford* +36%
    GHW Bush +26%
    Reagan +25%
    Obama +17%
    Kennedy -15%
    Clinton -22%
    Carter -24%
    Johnson -33%

    * = Ford was in office 29 months

    A net job gain is meaningless if it doesn't keep pace with job demand. Under bush unemployment rose 3.6%. Under Obama it has risen 1.3%. You do the math.

    Yep, those percentage change sure look good, don't they, too bad Obama has a net job loss and no other President on that list had a job loss. Keep distorting the data and watch Obama's approval ratings continue to drop as more and more people see data like that for what it is worth.

    You would have a point if Bush's term expired in 2007.

    How about we just look at his first 30 months?

    Bush: 4.2% to 6.2% ... a 2 point increase, an increse of 42%

    Obama: 7.8% to 9.1% ... a 1.3 point increase, an increse of 17%

    You called Obama's 2 point, 17% increase "a disaster." I'm just wondering what you called Bush's 2 point, 48% increase?

    I know how much this disturbs you, but there's a reason the unemployment rate is based on a percentage. The only Presidents to leave office with an unemployment rate higher than when they started since Hoover are:

    Hoover (R)
    Eisenhower (R)
    Nixon (R)
    Ford (R)
    GHW Bush (R)
    Bush (R)

    Notice a trend?
