Obama campaign's false claims about the economy

I don't have time right now to make a complete list, but this is the type of statement from Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) just stands out.
The unemployment rate is "lower now than it was in the last full month" of President George W. Bush's presidency, O'Malley said on Fox. . . .
Sorry governor, but you aren't even close.  During the last full month of Bush's presidency (December 2008), the unemployment rate was 7.3%.  Now it is 7.8%.  The broader U6 measure was 13.5% and now it is 14.7%.
