I hadn't seen the comparisons yet between the recovery during Bush's first term and Obama's first term so here it is. These statistics are gathered from BLS.gov. The starting points are Nov. 2002 and Jun. 2009, the ends of the two most recent recessions. Net job creation for Obama after 15 months was -657,000. Net job creation for Bush Jr. after 15 months was -1,278,000.
If Obama were to follow the Bush trend, next month the U.S. would lose 156,000 jobs and lose another 198,000 the month after.
I think we can all agree that a Democratic majority in the House/Senate and Democratic controlled White House has been much better for our economy and jobs.
