13. The incomming Obama team issued a report in Jan. 2009 projecting a 5.5% rate by the end of 2012

This was in support of the stimulus bill.

On Jan. 10, 2009 Obama gave a radio address in support of the report. I asked my nominee for Chair of the Council of Economic Advisers, Dr. Christina Romer, and the Vice President-Elect's Chief Economic Adviser, Dr. Jared Bernstein, to conduct a rigorous analysis of this plan and come up with projections of how many jobs it will create and what kind of jobs they will be. Today, I am releasing a report of their findings so that the American people can see exactly what this plan will mean for their families, their communities, and our economy.

The 5.8% figure is accurate. It was a projection which did not work out.
