What is the current unemployment rate? What has it been since the new guy took over? And Im not talking about the reported unemployment...Im talking current reported and those that have been on unemployment so long they have burned up all their benefits?
Consistent high unemployment, massive deficit spending, dismal ecological response to the gulf oil spill, most continuous cycles reporting zero to negatize economic growth, miserable response by his FEMA agency to the flooding in the New England region, low consumer confidence, signed a health care bill that STILL no one know how much it is actually going to cost and who ultimately will benefit from it...
Obamas responsibility...not Bush. On the plus side he has managed to contain GITMO...has continued to deny terrorists constitutional rights, has expanded black ops jails in the middle east, and has been pretty effective at following the Bush anti-terror doctrine. He gets credit for that.
I don't want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was wedding between the religious fundamentalists and political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it. ~ Billy Graham in Parade magazine February 1, 1981.
Under Bush, it went from 7.3% to 14% -- a 6.7 point increase, or a 92% increase
Under Obama, it went from 14% to 16.2% -- a 2.2 point increase, or a 16% increase
So how on Earth does that make Obama worse than Bush?
That's like having a pitcher give up 10 runs and then complain his backup is worse because the backup gave up two runs and now they're losing by 12-0 when it was only 10-0 before the reliever came in.
I'd really like to see the source you are using which informed you that the debt was 9 trillion when Bush left office. I'd like to see the source you rely on which informed you the debt increased 6.5 trillion in just 2½ years.
