    We can all agree the death of Bin Laden is a good thing but as far as I can see it's the only positive Obama accomplishment in 3 1/2 years.

    And any responsible President would have approved it.

    The economy and his policies are what will get him into the unemployment line in Jan, 2013.

    Obama's Latest Whopper: He Created More Jobs Than Reagan! Fri, Aug 24 2012 00:00:00 EA15_ISSUES

     

    Posted 08/23/2012 05:29 PM ET

     

    Campaign '12: Where are those allegedly unbiased fact-checkers when you need them? Like this week and the fantastic fib that Obama's deputy campaign manager told about job growth under the current president.

    Here's Stephanie Cutter's quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context:

    "Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what's happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around. And over the past, you know, 27 months we've created 4.5 million private-sector jobs. That's more jobs than in the Bush recovery (or) in the Reagan recovery."

    You'd think that if the Obama campaign wanted to peddle outright fabrications, they'd at least do it so they weren't so easily debunked.

    Not that the mainstream press, so deep in the tank for Obama, will bother.

    But you don't have to look very hard to see that Cutter, as Obama might say, is "just making stuff up."

    She starts counting private-sector job growth under Obama in February 2010 and, sure enough, in the 29 months since then (not 27 as Cutter says), there have been 4.5 million private-sector jobs created, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    But keep in mind that February 2010 was fully eight months into the economic recovery. So Cutter has simply picked the worst month under Obama as her starting point, in order to make Obama's job growth look as impressive as possible.

     

    So, in fairness, let's do the same for Reagan and Bush.

    In the aftermath of the 1981-82 recession, private-sector jobs bottomed out in December 1982, the month after that recession ended. Twenty-nine months later, the private sector under Reagan had created 8 million jobs — nearly twice as many as under Obama.

    How about Bush? Surely job growth during his administration was worse. After all, the president keeps telling us that his predecessor's policies "resulted in the most sluggish job growth in decades."

    Except if you use the Cutter method, the private sector created 4.7 million jobs in the 29 months after July 2003, when the job market bottomed. In other words, Bush beat Obama by his own preferred measuring technique by 200,000 jobs.

    It's worth noting, too, that jobs started growing under Bush one month after he signed his second major tax cut into law. It chopped capital gains and dividend tax rates and accelerated the schedule for the Bush income-tax rate cuts.

    What's more, after 29 months of allegedly stellar job growth under Obama, the jobless rate is still 8.3%. By this point in the Reagan and Bush jobs recoveries, the unemployment rate was 7.2% and 4.9%, respectively.

    If we were one of those fact-checking organizations, we'd give Stephanie Cutter the "Lying Liar from Liersburg" award.

    I admit, responding to Jamals posts are a bit like debating an empty chair.

    This is your brain.  Jamal is like your brain after being a victim of shaken baby syndrome.

    I like it when "-s" shows up as being disallowed.

    In response to 12-Angry-Men's comment:

    Jamal just likes to make up crap as he goes, no need for facts or anything resembling reality.

    Like the complete bullcrap about the women in the workforce.

    If he had any balls he would went to the BLS website and shown us the stats.

    Of course the coward won't because those numbers show that women in the labor force went from;

    121,247,000 in Feb 2009
    to
    125,972,000 today

    That's a GAIN of 4,725,000 women in the workforce.



    I'm finding it hard to square you numbers with the higher unemployment, lower workforce participation, and population growth.  Can you cite specific source?

    Not doubting you number, I just don't thinkit's is telling the full story.

    Ah, so he's past his prime at speaking at conventions.

    Wow.  OK



    He's 82.  Is that being in the prime of life?  Do you think he did well at the convention?  Not bad for... his age... for being past his prime.   But he has lost his fastball.
