When George W Bush was president, the unemployment rate didn't go above 7.1% and it didn't hit that number until the economy started to tank in 2008 which was after the Democrats regained control of the house and senate. Since Obama has taken office, it hasn't gotten below 8% which goes against an Obama campaign promise of it never going above 8%. Another number that Obama can't hide from, gas prices. When he took over as president, the average price per gallon was about $1.80. Today it's creeping to $4. What are some other numbers Obama can't hide from?

You could probably make hay with poverty numbers, those on government assistance of some kind, foreclosures, bankruptcies, home prices, and food price inflation (you covered fuel costs).

All of these are related to the economic conditions of the nation at the individual citizen level.

What about the record number of businesses (millions), esp small businesses going under? Which shrinks the available jobs universe, which is used in turn to help artificially keep the "unemployment" numbers down among other factors.

This does not include the record number of bank foreclosures.

This would never be so unreported under a republican admin. In fact it would be just the opposite. This is Big Brother in action.

I am one to agree with you Janice. More and more Obama's administration is looking like the Inner Party every day. He has his Ministry of Truth(MSM) doing his bidding to boot.
