You meant to say the unemployment rates was 4.5% or below for 13 months of the 96 months Bush was President,right.<quoted text> Yeah that's why the unemployment rate was 4.5%. You know during the Bush years I had people begging me to come work for them. Offering a lot more money too. There just simply wasn't enough people to fill the jobs that were available. There is a big difference in not enough people to fill the jobs and not enough jobs for all the people. I remember the want ads being 4 or 5 or even 6 pages. Now what page, page and a half? You're lying to yourself and believing it.
In Jan of 2001. Bush inherited a 4.2% rate & a balanced budget.
