So the month before you become President unemployment stands at 7.2%?

On your watch it grows to well over 10% and at no point in your whole first term does it fall below the 7.2%. Then early in your second term it starts to edge up again.

OK - so not quite half - but pretty damn close.

Interesting how Republicans who adore Reagan are too ignorant to even recognize his record, and instead assume it belongs to the President they irrationally hate and proceed to slam it.
