According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Obama has the worst record of any President in the last 60 years. From 1948 until January 2009 when Obama took office, there has been a combined 39 months of unemployment above 8 percent. Since Obama took office we’ve had to endure 43 consecutive months of unemployment above 8 percent and no end in sight!
Another record! Obama’s approval rating officially dropped below Jimmy Carter this week. Via US News and World Report:
President Obama’s slow ride down Gallup’s daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.
Since March, Obama’s job approval rating has hovered above Carter’s, considered among the 20th century’s worst presidents, but today Obama’s punctured Carter’s dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama’s job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter’s 51 percent…
…What’s more, Gallup finds that Obama’s overall job approval rating so far has averaged 49 percent. Only three former presidents have had a worse average rating at this stage: Carter, Ford, and Harry S. Truman. Only Truman won re-election in an anti-Congress campaign that Obama’s team is using as a model.
