The last republican president increased unemployment by 4.6% and Obama decreased it by .9%, so how?


Do you figure that Republican policies are in any way not insane to our economy?

(These are real-time adjusted numbers right from the BLS). Just select a begin date of March 2001)

(Since a president comes into office on Jan 20th, and the BLS reports are for the PRIOR month, the 1st month belonging to a…

Republican policies crashed our economy in the first place. Cons like to say there was a Democratic supermajority but they can’t name one single law Bush signed from that Democratic congress that caused our recession — because no such law exists.

Just because cons don’t like the numbers doesn’t mean they aren’t true.

Gallup: The Unemployment Rate is Collapsing
http://www.businessinsider.com/gallup-th…

U.S. unemployment, as measured by Gallup without seasonal adjustment, is 7.3% in mid-October, down considerably from 7.9% at the end of September and at a new low since Gallup began collecting employment data in January 2010. Gallup’s seasonally adjusted unemployment rate is 7.7%, also down from September. October’s adjusted mid-month measure is also more than a percentage point lower than October 2011.

But…

Let’s put the blame where it belongs. There are studies out there showing that, without Republican obstruction in Congress, the unemployment rate would already be below 7%, which would mean the deficit would also be much smaller than it is, currently.

Are we going to reward this anti-American treachery in November? I sure won’t.

Housing crashed the economy and both parties had a huge hand in it. D’s pushed for easy credit and R’s allowed those securities to be bundled and traded reclessly. The government backed most of it.

everything was working well until the dems got control of the house in 2006 – go figure

plus the 7.8 figure was skewed since california didn’t report their numbers in time, hmm cali is dems too, coincidence?

You don’t get it. We want the US to collapse. Bush turned America from its most prosperous period to the second Great Depression, and Romney will finish the job!

his overspending put us in debt in the trillions..
caused high inflation
record number of entitlements=welfare state
blames bush for everything even after 3 years.
did nothing to slow down crime
illegals taken over. 50 million strong now – hispanics n the usa. barrack heusin is for amnesty
roads and infastructure falling apart
tax increases
weak dollar
talked about transparency but has closed door meetings
broken promises
record high foreclosures
increasing our healthcare costs to pay for people who dont want to pay for themselves
high gas prices now 4 / gal in the summer 5/gal
look up online layoffs for 2008-2012. the liberal media only reports job creation from there messiah.
belong to a racist church against whites for 15yrs. he quit going once he got caught.
23.7million americans unemployed. 10 million underemployed.obama says the recession is over lol.

look at the averages again of your own site.
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS140000…

sure looks like Bush did twice the job Obama’s been doing to keep the unemployment down

I CLICKED YOUR LINK AND THE BUREAU OF LABOR SAID IT WAS AN INVALID REQUEST. WHY DOES OBAMY HAVE TO SHOUT SO MUCH. DOESN’T HE REALIZE PEOPLE AREN’T DEAF & CAN HEAR HIM WITH THE MIKE?. I DON’T THINK YOUR NUMBERS ARE RIGHT ANYWAY

Obama has never had one month as good as the last Republican President. He has no clue.

Average annual unemployment rate for George W. Bush

Year…………..Average
2001………….. 4.8
2002………….. 5.8
2003………….. 6.0
2004………….. 5.5
2005………….. 5.1
2006………….. 4.6
2007………….. 4.6
2008………….. 5.8

Please Please don’t quote facts – when you do they have to work so hard to make up lies that the air pollution increase nation wide. And besides what you are saying is a left wing conspiracy. Now stop undermining these souls and allow them to wallow in their misrepresentations.

Bush also kept it low for 6 of his 8 years, Obama has kept it high his entire 4 years.
