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?
