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%.
Real unemployment is around 15%. Our illustrious government does not count the people who have run out of unemployment benefits and no longer looking for work.
