Obama Created More Jobs In One Year Than Bush Created In Eight

This headline is just begging for a Google bomb: Obama Created More Jobs In One Year Than Bush Created In Eight

Indeed, from February 2001, Bush's first full month in office, through January 2009, his last, the economy added just 1 million jobs. By contrast, in 2010 alone, the economy added at least 1.1 million jobs.

I mean, isn't this a meme that should be shouted from the rooftops and pundit desks from coast to coast? You have to admit it's fascinating that Obama Created More Jobs In One Year Than Bush Created In Eight.



Yeah, but some of those jobs were paid for by the government, so they weren't really jobs. Or something.

What planet are you people from? First of all, Obama did not create any jobs. Like Jude said, making government positions is NOT creating jobs. That's not the private sector. We have companies going over seas or having their products assembled or whatever to save cost that he unions have destroyed here. Unions have people literally sitting and getting paid. We have NO industry here. Wake up! If taxes are lowered, companies can grow and expand. I can't beleive how stupid Americans can be.

"If taxes are lowered, companies can grow and expand."

Show us the data, Darrell, that proves that's true. Otherwise, you're just blowing smoke.

Tax rates have been dropping for years--and so have the jobs.

And to say the government doesn't create jobs is just silly, unless you're ignoring the military, post office (self-funded, but still a federal agency), the FBI, CIA, Department of Corrections, Highways, Education, FDA...

More importantly, what is the Federal government doing to encourage private job creation? Is it crafting policy to help encourage small business growth (where the majority of the private sector jobs are created) or is it giving out corporate hand-outs to companies who pay nominal tax rates and ship jobs overseas?
