    Umm... the unemployment rate was dropping slowly for the first half of 1981. It did not increase "immediately," as you falsely portray.

    I KNOW that you really are something!
    I wrote: "OH wow unemployment rates STOP going down and immediately go up!" Facetiously expecting a more intelligent response from people.
    I DIDN"T "portray" that with any facts because I was hoping smarter people would comprehend that unemployment LIKE a aircraft carrier takes time to slow and
    to turn! But you didn't get the analogy did you? Went right over your head!
    AGAIN for simplicity... The unemployment rate under Carter was as this chart shows:
    It went down under Carter BUT idiots like you don't seem to look at the BIG picture...i.e. it takes time for the job market to turn around! It doesn't happen overnight as
    you think!

    You wanna see what immediate increase to unemployment really looks like?

    1/2009: 7.8%
    2/2009: 8.3% (+0.5)
    3/2009: 8.7% (+0.4)
    4/2009: 9.0% (+0.3)
    5/2009: 9.4% (+0.4)
    6/2009: 9.5% (+0.1)
    7/2009: 9.5% (---)

    Now compare that to what Reagan inherited...

    1/1981: 7.5%
    2/1981: 7.4% (-0.1)
    3/1981: 7.4% (---)
    4/1981: 7.2% (-0.2)
    5/1981: 7.5% (+0.3)
    6/1981: 7.5% (---)
    7/1981: 7.2% (-0.3)

    What is the REAL unemployment number? Remember that? You guys didn't believe the 5% unemployment number Obama had remember?

    Unemployment numbers not 'phony' to Trump anymore - CNNPolitics

    So thank you Obama. When unemployment was going lower and lower and lower on your watch, Republicans denied denied denied. Now they are basically admitting you were the man!!!

    Fact is Obama took the unemployment number down from 7.45 to 4%. Bush created the 7.45 number although I see you give him 5.27. Unemployment must have been really low when he first started and clearly you aren't giving Bush credit for all the people who lost their jobs because of him even after he left office. This list is a misleading joke.

    The unemployment numbers candidate Donald Trump assailed for months on the campaign trail as "phony" and fictional are suddenly up to snuff.

    The numbers haven't changed, nor has the Bureau of Labor Statistics' methodology for compiling them, but with the jobless rate ticking down and hiring on the rise, Trump is eager to point to the economic indicators as a sign that his presidency has been a boon for the economy.
    "I talked to the President prior to this and he said to quote him very clearly: 'They may have been phony in the past, but it's very real now,' " Spicer said Friday from the White House podium, hours after the government announced 235,000 new jobs in February

    Only 235,000? How pathetic. Remember Republicans? This is proof Republicans hold Democrats up to a much higher standard.
