Um 23 million? where might I ask did you get that number?

I looked up 5 different sources and they all indicated around 12 million unemployed. Not that I think that's great, but you doubled the unemployed number.

however, I will say that unemployment spiked very high under Obama. He inherited a 7.8% unemployment rate and it spiked that year at about 10% in October. It has declined ever since and this last month it's back at around 7.9%.
