DNC Chair Denies Unemployment Has Gone Up Under Obama


The only problem is that the unemployment rate was at 5% when Obama was sworn in January 2009 and it is around 9% today. 

Of course, my source is the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which is part of the Obama Administration.  So maybe I shouldn't believe the data.

Um, no. You either don't know how to read charts or don't have any idea when Obama was inaugurated. Obama came into office in 1/09, not 1/08, and unemployment was about 8% at that time, not 5%.
