Under GWB, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate reached 4.4% in March 2007. The rate rose o 6.1% in August 2008 and up to 7.2% in December 2008.
All your "progressive" friends and the alphabet media would have had us believe we were in a depression under GWB when unemployment was at 4.4%. Now, when it's double digits under the annointed one, we're told we're in a recovery. Both parties spent us into this and worked together to create the sub-prime mortgage crisis. The Dems are now engaging in open bribery (e.g. The Cornhusker Bribe).
