Everyone knows Obama’s job recovery is the most sluggish job recovery in the history of all of humanity, and probably the whole galaxy. So why does this graph show that Bush’s job recovery was even worse?
Some of you might remember that George W. Bush’s first term as president immediately followed a big stock market bust, just as Barack Obama’s first term immediately followed the housing bust. Although both busts were different, both lead to dramatic job losses that then rebounded.
And according to the above graph, the recovery of private sector jobs during Obama’s presidency was much faster than the recovery under George W. Bush’s presidency!
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU STUPID RECOVERY? HAVEN’T YOU HEARD OBAMA IS DESTROYING EVERYTHING?
We’ve heard repeatedly from our conservative leaders that this economic recovery is worst, most sluggish recovery ever since the beginning of time plus a million. Why is it that we don’t remember the same comments being made during Bush’s term as president?
Some people might point out that the recovery seemed better under Bush because Republicans under Bush allowed private sector jobs to increase, while under Obama they have slashed government jobs as much as possible.
But do not listen to those people. Everyone knows that “government jobs” don’t count. That would just be liberal bias!!!
