According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics when Democrats took control of the House and Senate Jan. 07 the unemployment rate stood at 4.6 as of June 09 it stands at 9.5 ! On Jan 09 when Obama took over the unemployment rate was 7.6 now as stated before it's 9.5 ! In other words Democrats could be honestly held to a greater part in the loss of approximently 9 million American jobs. I guess it's standard procedure for Democrats and the liberal media to blame Bush but then you would have to admit that the Democrats in the House and Senate did nothing worthwhile to combat it ! Ah, but still the Democrats and the shivering legged adoring liberal media are held by Obama's Howdy Dudy smile and tele-prompter snake oil speeches !!!
