Has Obama kept his promises?
This article was on the main page of Yahoo, and I happened to read it as soon as I came online. I'm just wondering what PD's general opinion is.
Think Obama failed to deliver?
The unemployment rate was 8.2 percent in February 2009, when Obama first addressed Congress. It hit double digits by that October and was 9.4 percent at last report. While the administration is quick to point out that 1.1 million jobs were created last year, there are 2.8 million fewer jobs now than when Obama took office.
Housing is a particular sore spot. Foreclosures hit a record 1 million in 2010, and this year's figures are likely to be worse.
