Over at NBC News, they have a stark comparison of statistics from January 2001 to current stats. Boy, did Bush mess up this country good! Unemployment rates are up, the surplus is gone, replaced by a massive deficit. And oh, yeah, nobody likes President Bush.
I thought to myself, why, I bet we could do this for Schwarzenegger too. So, here are a few tidbits from November 2003, the date Arnold took over, to the most current stats I could find:
Nov. 2003: 6.8%, or 1.196 mil. unemployed Californians
Nov. 2008: 8.4%, or 1.562 mil. unemployed Californians
Nov. 2003, before Schwarzenegger repealed the Vehicle License Fee, $10.7 Billion
Now: $42 Billion
