Obama Fails to Match Reagan Unemployment Numbers

The unemployment numbers for February are out.

And – shocker – the Obama Administration has failed to match those from the same period of the Reagan Administration.

The Obama Administration, which numerous stories have described as determined to “transform America” by overturning the Reagan Revolution (as twice noted here and here by liberal columnist E.J. Dionne), can’t match Reagan’s record on jobs.

The numbers are:

 Obama, February 2013, 5th year in office: 7.7%

 Reagan, February, 1985, 5th year in office: 7.2%

Since the president has made this one of his central goals for his presidency, we are happy to oblige, and will from time to time take note of the Obama-Reagan results.

Nothing like accountability, eh Mr. President?

Let the excuse-making begin.
