The Real Job Creator: Obama Nearly Doubles Bush’s Jobs Numbers

Tax cuts create jobs! I have written more posts about this and have been debunking this conservative meme for years. Now I want to show you it in graphic form from the St. Louis Federal Reserve.

In these graphs I eliminated the first year of each Presidents’ term because of a lot of debate regarding residual effect of the prior administration’s policies. This also gives an entire year for the new President’s policies to take effect and be implemented.

In fact, I even eliminated the 2008 recession for George Bush. So we looked at the period after the 2001 recession and up to the peak of his economy in 2007.

First, let’s look at employment in the private sector under President George Bush. Only 86,000 private sector jobs were created per month.


Under Obama, 151,000 private sector jobs were created per month.

    Unemployment Rate Rises to 8.2% as 69,000 New Jobs Are Added in April.
    The U.S. economy added just 69,000 jobs in May, its lowest gain in a year, and previous months' readings were revised lower. Meantime, the unemployment rate ticked up to 8.2% from 8.1%. Economists had estimated the jobless rate would hold steady and the economy would add about 155,000 jobs.
    "Today's weak jobs report is devastating news for American workers and American families, The president's re-election slogan may be 'forward,' but it seems like we've been moving backward."

    Amazing that liberals will still try to post garbage and convince every one what a great job Obama is doing. The jobs numbers have been steadily declining since January and todays number is about half of April.........BUT DON'T WORRY OBAMA IS DOING A GREAT JOB and if it wasnt for those GOP obstructionist he would be doing even better......If you believe that could I perhaps interest you in some oceanfront property in South Dakota?

  • Jo Cuppajo 2012/06/01 16:40:59
    my employment situation is wonderful, and not only that, I dont know one single soul that is unemployed, nor do I hear of others that are.

    Take the earbuds out and turn off the ipod.

    I know at least 30 people that are unemployed.

    not at all--I have a job that requires I travel all over the US, have friends and family also scattered all over the US, and in that circle of professional and personal, I not only dont know of anyone unemployed, I never hear them discussing it, either:)
