    Surprise! Obama Is Creating More New Jobs Than George W. Bush - Yahoo! News

    Even President Barack Obama acknowledges that the economy is creating jobs too slowly under his stewardship. Yet Obama can now boast that more jobs have been created during his first term than during that of his predecessor George W. Bush.

    The private sector creates jobs - government jobs are a drain on the private sector; economics 101!

    Government jobs are far superior to most private sector jobs.

    Exactly!!! It is not government's responsibility to create jobs and they are not capable.

    Hiring more bureaucrats because of all the oppressive laws they passed is not good for the economy. It's not good, period. His policies have discouraged hiring in the private sector, where all the wealth is created. Expanding government while private sector jobs disappear will bring us down, but that is the real plan.

    Superior according to what criteria?

    Compensation relative to productivity? I could see that. From the perspective of semi-skilled worker, government jobs may be preferable to private sector jobs because they get more for doing less.

    The private sector on the other hand, by definition, requires the value of productivity to exceed its compensation. It must be this way for economic growth to occur. So in terms of productivity, private sector jobs blow public sector jobs out of the water, across the board.

    Sounds like if you're convinced that government jobs are the bee's knees, you're all about the bennies and could care less about actually doing anything valuable.

    According to this article the job gains were in the private sector. It also says there are fewer gov't workers than before.

    22 million people are w/o a job.

    And liberals MUST point at useless information to make themselves feel better about fucking 22 million people over.
