As we can see, the year before President Obama took office, the lowest unemployment number was 4.9 and it spiraled up to upper 7s.

Momentum carried it higher, and to his credit, President Obama, despite some in Congress vowing to thwart all of his initiatives, no matter how much it hurt the country, has been able to get it under control and steadily decrease it.

Unemployment hasn't been in the low 3s this century yet we have had some very good (better than decent) economic years.
