    Yep, just like I said ...

    Bush, unemployment went from 4.2% to 7.8% -- a 3.6 point jump (86% increase)
    Obama, unemployment went from 7.8% to 9.1% -- a 1.3 point jump (17% increase)


    Thanks!

    Yep, Bush average unemployment rate under 6% and Obama's over 9. Now there is a record that liberals are proud of.

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating. Rising Misery index 7.83 to 12.67. First President in U.S. History to have our credit downgraded on his watch! 38-41% JAR and well over 50-55% disapproval ratings.

    And there again you're wrong and the numbers you posted bare that out.

    Democrats took control of Congress beginning January 2006. Unemployment averaged around 4.8% from January 2006 thru July 2008. How you can claim that things started to go downhill because of a Democratically held Congress when GWB's average unemployment rate was clearly higher from 2001-2006 just by looking at the figures you posted (see post #154 for quoted figures) is just foolish and laughable to boot.

    I don’t think the burst of the mortgage bubble and the high unemployment rates are the direct result of the Democrats taking control of Congress. The bubble has a much longer term ‘culprit’ to blame, and that’s Washington’s inability to hold anyone in the banking industry accountable when they break the law.

    I believe in free market, but I don’t believe that powerful businesses should be allowed to break the law just because they’re powerful. Without fraud we would NOT have seen the market collapse the way it did.

    Well, true. But to imply that he was the direct reason for the downgrade is nonsense.

    And on another note, S&P ratings are a sham! We need to get rid of government mandated rating agencies. You strip that government endorsement, and eventually people will realize that they (the ratings agencies) serve absolutely no purpose. Do your own research!

    Obama record that you are running from

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.

    You don't believe the results you post, why should others?

    I won't be voting for Bush in 2012, wonder why you will be voting for Obama? How did Bush generate these results 2 1/2 years after leaving office?

    Obama economic results in 2011, .4% GDP and 1% GDP growth in 2011, 25+ million unemployed or under employed Americans in 2011, 4 trillion added to the debt in less than 3 years, and a downgrade of the U.S. credit rating.
