Obama Added More Jobs in 3 than Bush did in 8

I think it should be noted that Bush lost jobs because he sent the economy into a nose dive.  Obama has a negative number so far because he had to pull us out of it.  At this rate Obama will be positive before his term is over.

  1. I fail to see how this is a good thing... that means in total we have a million less private sector jobs than we did when Bush took office... with a population that has significantly expanded since then.

  2. If you fail to see how taking a nose dive, turning it into steady gains, and doing better than your predecessor in your third year is a good thing then I don't know how much I can help you understand...You see how job loss accelerated under Bush? See how it slowed under Obama? See how it turned into steady gains? Good. Thing.
