    It was 62.2 when he got there and 58.6 (the third lowest in 50 years, the other two all within his terms) as of 2013.

    Since you're solely focused on Presidents, where do those numbers go.

    As well, Obama's highest numbers, due to the recession he inherited, topped out at 10.4%.
    Is it honest to include these high numbers for Obama in comparison with Bush before these last 60+ months of positive private sector job growth ?
    Again, what do you think the million discouraged workers not counted as Unemployed would have done to the unemployment numbers? Keep buying the rhetoric and making Gruber look brilliant. What I find interesting about people like you is how you cherry pick numbers and have no clue what they even mean.

    Presidential success should be measured by the state of the economy when the potus leaves office,

    because without a doubt or dispute, that's HIS economy.
    Oh contraire--that would be on the DEM Congress that came in to start 2007, don'tchaknow ?

    You don't want to hear Gruber again, then stop proving him right.

    Where there was a republican issue, somewhere/sometime, there was a democrat to blame it on.

    How many more jobs were they when Bush left office than when he took office? We have gained more jobs in the past six months under Obummer, than under all 8 years of Bush. For that matter, we have gained more jobs in the past two years of Obummer, than under all three Bush terms.

    And yes, after 7 years of Bush, we were in our second recession, both which started on Bush's watch. Blame it on whoever you like, since you can't handle the truth.

    If it was Reagan's amnesty, it was the DEM Congress.
    If it was Clinton handing off the baton with a great lead, it was the GOP Congress.
    If it was Iraq-2, it was DEMs like HRC and Kerry who voted YES due to lying and manipulated Cheney intel.
    We need to change DP to RP: 'Rewrite Politics' .

    How do you explain the FACT that I grew up a Democrat, voted for Democrats for national office for about 20 years, and now realize that the party of Pelosi, Reid, and Obama don't represent the Democrat Party that I knew and supported?
