    Every Republican run since Hoover has left a higher rate of unemployment than what they assumed:

    HOOVER..................................14.2%..........23.6%

    EISENHOWER............................3.0%............5.2%

    NIXON/FORD.............................3.6%.............7.7%

    REAGAN/BUSH41.......................7.4%.............7.5%

    BUSH43....................................4.0%.............7.8%

    So by your own data Obama sucks since it's right where it was when he took office.

    Thanks. :clap2:


    Just like Jimmy "Peanuts" Carter.

    The worst Democratic performance was Jimmy Carter, who had the same unemployment rate when he left office as when he entered.

    And that comes form the lefty libs favorite site.

    Daily Kos: Unemployment Rate by President and Party


    AND

    Jan 1981 Jan 1985 7.5 7.3 -0.2 Reagan I Republican
    Jan 1985 Jan 1989 7.3 5.4 -1.9 Reagan II Republican



    So yes I do want to talk about unemployment. :D

    Evidently you didn't get the point. After Obama is reelected and serves another term he will straighten out another goddam Republican mess. Like I said.....it took Roosevelt two terms and a world war to straighten out Hoover's mess. Hell....don't get your feathers wet. We're used to cleaning up after war mongering Republicans and rich people.

    No I got the point. What you're trying to do is divert your own point. Romney will happily clean up Obiedopey's mess. And he won't blame Obama for the next 8 years.

    I'll tell you what......if you really believe that shit sell your house and take some British gambling odds and then after the election you'll be worth about a tenth of what Romney has screwed the working man out of......

    Where were you when Reagan for the first time in our history cut taxes for the wealthy and quadrupled the national debt?

    Where were you when after Bill Clinton balanced the budget and generated a surplus and we were on track to completely eliminate the national debt by this year and George W. Bush took over and cut taxes twice, 2001 and 2003 then started two wars, began to borrow from Communist Chinese banks for the first time in our history then doubled the debt again? Why don't you realize that when Obama took over the first year's interest on the existing debt was half a trillion dollars? $454,393,280,417.03 to be exact.

    Another post by the profoundly ignorant, failing to understand the predictive nature of business cycles and the carryover effects of federal budgets (not to mention which party controls Congress).

    Dishonest in the extreme.

    When Reagan took office in January 1981, unemployment was 7.5%. At the end of his first term, in January 1985, it was 7.3% and falling. At the end of his second term in January 1989, it was 5.4%.

    Asshole.

    Unlike you, I have the evidence: Historical Unemployment Rates in the United States

    When Carter took office in January 1977, unemployment was 7.5%. When he left, it was 7.5% and climbing.
