Much is made of what dearest leader inherited and what happened later.

Being a guy who loves the truth, I decided to look into the situation because ... to be fair ... he inherited something and something happened after he took office.

I selected the standard invented by James Earl Carter during the 1976 campaign. That would be the "MISERY INDEX" which is the US inflation rate plus the US unemployment rate.

Harry Truman inherited a MI of 13.63% and reduced it to 3.45% under his regime ... the best post war performance with a drop of 10.18%.

Ronald Wilson Reagan inherited the worst post war mess with a MI of 19.33% and his regime reduced it to 9.72% ... a drop of 9.61%.

Gerald Rudolf Ford inherited a MI of 16.36% and his regime reduced it to 12.66% ... a drop of 3.70%.

William Jefferson Clinton inherited a MI of 10.56% and his regime reduced it to 7.29% ... a drop of 3.27%.

John Fitzgerald Kennedy inherited a MI of 8.31% and his regime reduced it to 6.82% ... a drop of 1.49%.

George Walker Bush inherited a MI of 7.93% and his regime reduced it to 7.49% ... a drop of 0.44%.

George Herbert Walker Bush inherited a MI of 10.07% and his regime increased it to 10.30% ... a rise of 0.23%.

Lyndon Baines Johnson inherited a MI of 7.02% and his regime increased it to 8.12% ... a rise of 1.1%.

Barack Hussein Obama inherited a MI of 7.73% and his regime increased it to 11.72% ... a rise of 3.99%.

Facts, they are such a stubborn thing.
