Didn’t The Won©®™ promise to bring unemployment down from where it was during the elections? Looks like he’s not doing a very good job.
[T]here are more officially unemployed people in the United States (13.9 million, though if you count those who have given up looking it’s nearly twice that) than the total individual populations of 46 out of 50 U.S. states.
Or, if you prefer: There are more offically unemployed Americans than the combined population of Wyoming, Vermont, North Dakota, Alaska, South Dakota, Delaware, Montana, Rhode Island, Hawaii, Maine, New Hampshire, Idaho and the District of Columbia.
It must be Bush’s fault, or the Republicans’, or the TEA party, or something.
