In response to UserName99's comment:
As you know, facts like these make little impression on republicans. Facts and reality just make them furious and indignant.
Republicans are desperate to destroy the economy so they can cast blame on Obama. Its their only chance in the next election. Its not going to work.
In 2016 the voter will be confronted with this kind of evidence before entering the voting booth -
Obama: 12 million private sector jobs created over 8 years.
Clinton: 20 million private sector jobs created over 8 years.
Bush: 0 (ZERO, ZIP, NADA) private sector jobs created over 8 years.
Reagan: Ancient history
Wow. Advice for your job as a propagandist: throw in some real numbers at least once in a while.
Obama created 12 million jobs? Where did that come from?
First of all, you are obviously using gross number of jobs started.....you are not taking into account the 4 million plus jobs LOST in Obama's reign. So far...
Net jobs is a more logical measure. Obama has done nada, zip, zero . Unemployment rate and net jobs are at best the same as when he took office.
"12 million" must also include some huge fantasy numbers of jobs created from now to 2016.
So you take the 12 million gross jobs 'added' by Obama, and then claim Bush created zero jobs?
No private sector job was started during the 8 years of George Bush?
Unless you switched Bush's number to "net jobs"...tricky, arent you?
