Unemployment rate in Feb 2009, ONE month after Obama took office : 8.3%<quoted text> Obama's just a plain hypocrite and fool. Obama's followers are just plain fools,and hypocrites. The people that idolize Obama are the same people that complained about Bush,Obama is ten times worst than Bush,yet they won't say one word. Obama lied every time he opened his mouth,but those that idolize him continue to follow him blindly. Obama himself complained when the unemployment rate raised above 4.5 under Bush,yet it has never gone down under Obama. There are currently twice as many people with out jobs ad twice as many people on welfare than there were prior to the time Obama was elected to the Senate in 2006.
Unemployment rate 9 months after Obama took office, Oct 2009 : 10%
Are you clueless to the point that you think those are Obama's numbers? Everything crashed in the fall of 2008, starting in August 2008. The 8.3 and 10% unemployment numbers are but a consequence of GWB's last disastrous year as president that almost bankrupted the United States.
