    When Obama took office, the country was losing jobs at the rate of 750,000 a month.

    Bush's final budget was in effect until October of that year when unemployment ballooned to 10.1%.

    From 2001 to 2008, the country lost millions of jobs.

    Thanks for giving me a chance to point that out.

    Thats 7 million jobs from 01 to 08 created

    as far as the 09 budget, it was signed by BHO march of 2009, GWB refused to sign it
    National Coalition for Homeless Veterans - President Obama Signs FY 2009 Budget into Law

    and what does that have to do with jobs?
    I Thought the failed stimulus was the solution?

    .

    There are many people who believe that Obama was handed a big, steaming pile of crap, an economic disaster of historic proportions, a staggering and massively complicated spider's web of financial fecal matter that this country has never seen.

    Yes, Republicans, I know, it's not true, we're all supposed to think it was all just a little blip from which we should recovered immediately, back on our merry, prosperous, "exceptional" way. We should have come roaring back after that little down dip like a horny lion. That recession was nothing special, just another bump in the road. I get it, I get it.

    But for those who think that's not true, the only thing that will matter is the trajectory of the economy on Election Day. If the trajectory is up, Obama's back in. If it's down, it'll be Romney. If it's flat, it'll be a toss-up. A decent Republican candidate might well win regardless, but it is what it is. These numbers are irrelevant.

    Mac the wheels had come off, no doubt about that

    GWB was handed a recession and 9-11 in 8 months in 2001, not the same, not like it wasin 08, but it was notgoing great either, 9-11 was a huge event

    BHO spent his first 2 years cramming down the health care reform law down our throats and lying about GM paying us back (they still owe us 50 billion, +-) and even with there stock there still 15-25 billion short

    And what exactly did going from a deficit of 163 billion in 2007 to where we are today do for us? (budget short-fall 2007, from 2006 congress) what is it 1.4 trillion a year now?

    These are not partisan quotations, it is accurate information that if people use to decide our next president (which I think enough will) its a no brainer

    By the way out health care system is fine, the way we insure it is the issue that needs attention, Obama's way as best I can see was not the way we should have "attacked" it

    If we were still counting unemployment the same way we were when Bush left office the rate would be 11% today. As it is Gallup says it's 9.1% using the same numbers that the BLS uses. The Obama Administration uses "Seasonal Adjusted" to lower the rate to 8.3%.
