George W. Bush had the worst jobs record on record.

"President George W. Bush entered office in 2001 just as a recession was starting"
Interesting statement at the very top of your link. Does that mean Bush inherited the recession from Clinton????
That is an interesting graphic, but when it us updated to include the latest administration, Obama is going to drag down the curve quite a bit.
The US has lost over 7 million jobs since Obama took office, and even though the LW media keeps reporting that the job losses are slowing, we are still losing jobs....just not as much as we were.
So it's kinda like the oil spill. We were leaking 20 thousand barrels a day, and now we are only leaking 10 thousand. I guess that means it's getting better, but the people on the gulf don't see it that way. They just see that oil is still leaking.
Odd that G didn't include the last 1.5 years ... the one where the regime's policies lost every job created under Bush.
I guess we can now add the unemployed to the list of people who are merely stage props to be paraded out when it fits the agenda and the warehoused out of sight once they no longer serve a purpose.
If it doesn't fit the agenda... .

Denial is comfortable, and the on-going state of all radical rightwingers, and even what used to be considered moderate Republicans, and extinct species.
No one predicted sings of recovery, this soon.
All the economists stated our near Bush Depression, and the resulting sharp downturn could last as long as a decade.
Instead, every current economic sign, is recovering. Mortgage defaults down, GDP on an upswing, the threat of inflation, down, due to import numbers, and of all things, <span style='font-size: 14pt'>FedX up twenty percent, a sure sign of business recovery.</span>
The interesting thing about failed Republican policies, during which they are building their case with their usual big gov. complaints, and oh, we must reduce regulations on businesses to keep them from outsourcing our jobs, and allow themj to hire more workers, trouble is, that is never their result. The truth is they all grew the government, deepened the deficits, and their tax cuts did not produce jobs, in fact, their record on job creation is dismal, all of them.
Easy for all of you righties to ignore every single good economic sign, and pretend that most of our strife is not still the result of the worst economic threats and EXPECTED, PREDICTED, LONG, SLOW RECOVERY we have faced since the Great Depression, and deny that we are still fighting to overturn the disasters left by Busn, which occured under BUSH'S WATCH, and hilarious, that after that kind of insanity, you accuse Liberals of being blind partisans. That is just too hypocritical for words.
The fact is this country is still plowing it's way out of George Bush's failed policies, An extended REPUBLICAN SPENDFEST, and trying to resolve his two costly, illegal, corrupted wars, which were nothing more than a giveaway to Neocon investment interests for, and in, Cheney and Bush's corporate buddies, their crony contractors, who bilked us from afar, as their Wall Stree pigs were bilking us right here, and their Pharmaceutical and medical insurance contributors, and credit card contributors, banks and predatory lenders, were protected from any oversight, by the admiistration, for eight years of the most massive attack on the Middle Class wages and financial security we've seen in decades, and the largest redistribution of wealth to the wealthy, which is always the way with Republican policies, only the promised rewards never show up except for the top one percent. THE CHARTS PROVE IT.
It's always the same with Republicans.
The tax cuts, don't produce healthy job growth, and Republicans always grow the Federal government, cut taxes, and spend their asses off.
Facts. Republican Presidents fail miserably in job creation. The Republoican Billioniare friendly, Trickle down theories have always failed to deliver. Jobs creation falls way short of their promises.
<span style='font-size: 20pt'>Those are the facts. Historians stated that President Obama inherited the worst state of the union, since Roosevelt. Only the dumbest of the dumb, would be critical and without any patience while numbers are already showing recovery. It's nothing but another sour grapes, REpublican Partisan witch hunt, AGAIN!</span>

Will it still be just sour grapes come November when your precious Dems take a beating at the polls?
