Um, Yeah, I've Been Saying This...
If it wasn't for the Fifty Little Hoovers, we would be in a full recovery by now.
In Bush's 8 years in office, we had a cumulative loss of 913,000 private sector jobs. During Obama's three years we've had a cumulative loss of 274,000 jobs, but that number goes down with each new jobs report.
In Bush's 8 years in office we had a cumulative addition of 900,000 government sector jobs. In Obama's three, we've lost 590,000.
The moral of this story is that government jobs are only "real" jobs when a Republican is in the White House.
