    JOBS LOST, OBAMA’S FAULT, JOBS CREATED NOT?
    WTF?

    Jobs lost not Obama’s fault. 8 million jobs were lost under Bush. January 2009 through March 2012, the country lost an estimated 740,000 jobs in total, and lost about 161,000 jobs in the private sector. In other words, job loss under Obama -- who inherited a recession deeper than any seen in generations, followed by a recovery that most would describe as modest -- was nevertheless dwarfed by job loss under Bush, at least for the majority of the two presidents' first terms.
    Paul Krugman: Job Loss Under Bush Much Worse Than Under Obama

    Since the stimulus, there has been steady job growth and economic gains because President Obama did not fall into the austerity trap that is wreaking havoc on the European Union member countries……Romney is hell-bent on retarding the economy with drastic job-killing spending cuts and deficit-increasing lower tax rates for the wealthy to the tune of $10.7 trillion with the majority going to 1/10th of the 1% richest Americans.

    Rasmussen polling leans to the far right and is used by FOXNEWS. Rasmussen Reports is founded and owned by Scott Rasmussen, a politically active Social Conservative.
    Case in point.

    Rasmussen polls is also one of the most accurate polls.

    Who gets the credit for any jobs created? Obama who is CEO of no private company that I know of, or the top executives that are using their resources and decide to hire these people. Those executives are evil though. So I guess Obama.

    Unemployment remains very high, and I do not buy the Vichy right "they" cook the numbers bit either.

    I heard a good cook the books with unemployment #'s tonight...
    Don't know how true this is....

    Obama's buddies projected a loss of 200k jobs recently.
    This was a projection...
    So when the actual number turned out to be 140k jobs lost
    the Obama administration took credit for creating 60k jobs.....

    Amazing if there is any truth to it.
