What was the average unemployment rate during the Bush 43 administration and the Obama administration? What was the average price of a gallon of gasoline during the Bush 43 administration and the Obama administration? What was the number of people on food stamps at the end of the Bush 43 administration compared to right now? What was the number of people on disablity at the end of the Bush 43 administration compared to right now?
Forget the unemployment rate. I would concentrate the number of job on Jan 19, 2009 to today. If the stories I have been reading are correct, there are about 5 million less jobs. Romney should pound on that.
I agree with the rest of your list. This election has so much low hanging fruit it should be easy to have a landslide. You just need the right guy with the spine to go for Obama’s political throat.
I just recently did some research on the unemployment rates during Bush’s 8 years and it averaged out at 5.3% for all 8 years. This was taken from the Dept. of Labor statistics. Even Jimmy Carter’s rate was below 8% for his 4 year term. It averaged at most 7.5% - still lower than zeros. Facts don’t lie - only people do.
