presidents and the unemployment rate

Looking at the table,

unemployment went down under Reagan, zoomed up under Bush, went down under Clinton, went up under W, and is up under Obama.

However it has gone up only 0.3% under Obama.  Where it went up 1.9% under Bush.  And 1.1% and 2.5% under W.

Assuming you trust the numbers.  And, of course, suspecting the zillions of other factors involved.
