okay employment is a net negative....but that does not mean the economy is worse now than it was then. Obama was elected right when the roller coaster started heading down hill. He could not stop what was going to happen his first days in office. Jobs are currently being added, GDP has been + almost every quarter except the first few after Obama took office. GDP is a much better indicator of the economic recovery than just looking at a presidents net job growth during a specified 4 year term without accounting for any other factors.
Its a great right wing talking point to bash Obama. After all, it makes a great sound bite for Republicans. NO NET JOBS ADDED WHAT A BASTARD! I applaud your ability to do math but your inability to critically understand numbers and the meaning behind them saddens me.
If the collapse happened a year earlier, those lost jobs would be on Bush's shoulders not Obama. Its simply a matter of timing when you look at NET job creation. Your facts are just numbers, not indicators of what is actually going on.
You must have graduated from Limbaugh school of retarded.
Look at it like this: Instead of jobs we will use $
I make a $100 investment as a CEO..My investment fails and I bet again...fail again. now I'm -$100 However right after my second bet I get fired and you are now the CEO. You work tirelessly for four years to get us back in the + but you only manage to get the company back to -$10. So yes your hard work still results in a NET LOSS, but that NET LOSS is still a positive based on the fact you have generated $90 in the right direction and you would be pissed off if people said you were doing a shit job fixing my mistakes because it wasn't fixed fast enough simply because we are still negative. You would tell the board that it will only be a mater of time before we are NET POSITIVE. It just takes time.
DO NOT vote based on numbers carefully selected that would, in this mock situation, make you look bad. Vote on the facts behind the numbers, the trends, the future, where we are going.
You were doing a good job recovering that $100 I lost. But now a bunch of uninformed idiots voted you out and now Mitt Romney is CEO. He doesn't understand or agree with anything you did so the likelihood he will improve on your work is unlikely. Your work is now wasted simply because people thought it could be better? If only people had the patience to trust you, the Company was being driven in the right direction, just apparently not fast enough for us gotta have it now Americans fast food home delivery next day delivery, instant online streaming American society.
Instead we are in the garage with the hood up. wheels off, changing the oil, trying to figure out a new way to sole a problem that was already being solved.
