    Just so we're clear in future threads...

    And yet a majority of the House wants to go back to a Bush economy.

    The truth is not only has Obama created more jobs than Bush did in 8 years, those are private sector jobs as well.

    Facts have a liberal bias.

    uhh, just adding up the bars on that graph, wouldn't obama's total still be quite negative? not that either president had much of anything to do with the economic cycle.

    I know the source is an ultra leftist front group but you would expect a little common sense and the ability to do simple math by even the most leftist loony out there. Furthermore, when your own graph laughs right in your face about your inability to comprehend simple data, then may you should hide under a rock forever.

    Let's see, you take Bush's NET jobs created over 8 years (1 million) and compare it to Obama's TOTAL jobs created in 2 years (1.1 million) and pronounce victory for the leftist job creation machine. Hooray!

    I guess those negative blue bars from February 2009 to January 2010 were just swept under by a tide of Hope and Change in Obamaland.

    Unemployment rate is STILL unacceptably high

    Obama has been a massive failure on jobs

    I don't think that means what you think it means.

    It's been high. What, are you expecting the rate to drop to 0% overnight?

    The source of the data is the United States Labor Department.

    I think it is your reading skills (or perhaps your political proclivities) that show an inability to comprehend. Here's the major quote from the article:
    Notice, it looks at 2010 job creation and not the number for the entire period covered by the Obama administration. Your protestations do nothing to refute the fact that in 2010, there were more jobs created during the entirety of the Bush administration, which was the focus of the article. Furthermore, even if you look at the jobs data since Obama took office and compare that to Bush, there is a definite trend towards more jobs.
