Just a little bit of trivia here and readers can make of it what they will.
From 2009 to 2011, the first three years of Obama's presidency, 4,057 people have renounced their U.S. citizenship or handed in their Green Cards. From 2001 to 2008, in George Bush's full eight years of presidency, only 3937 people renounced their U.S. citizenship or handed in their Green Cards.
These numbers do not include the data provided at the Federal Registry for the year 2012
