7. Prior to 2008, 7.7% would have been considered an emergency. Now it's the new normal.

8. Shakes head

What are you talking about?

We were welol over 10% just a few years ago and we've been dropping pretty steadily ever since. This is a direct result of Obama's policies versus Bush's policy which produced that 10%+ UE rate.

It was a huge hole to dig out of and it didn't help that Republicans didn't lift a finger to lend a hand the last 4 years. We're on the right track. 7.7% isn't the new normal, it's just a stop along the way towards 6% or 5% or better.
