Anonymous asked: If you notice in the U-6 figures, Obama, at this point, got the percentage down to where it was when he first took office (the beginning of 2009). Obviously it's not going to straight down starting the first day he takes office. Things get bad to worse and then they start getting better.
The U-6 of December 2009 was hardly the average for Bush. The average U-6 under Bush was around 9%. The average U-6 under Obama has been between 13% and 14% Bush. The jobs situation is worse under Obama, period. As are all of the other economic indicators.
