Job Performance, Obama Versus Bush, -a microcosm of the last 80 years-
Under George W. Bush private sector employment DECREASED by 6oo,ooo jobs.
Under President Obama private sector employment INCREASED by 300,000 jobs.
Under George W. Bush government sector employment INCREASED by 1,700,000 jobs.
Under President Obama government sector employment DECREASED by 600,000 jobs.
While Republicans run on empty promises of smaller government and their imaginary ability to manage the economy their record always points in the opposite direction, big spending, pitiful job creation and massive deficit spending.
