Below is a graph of the changes in the numbers of American jobs and resulting unemployment rates in our president’s first term. For those of you who still need to tell your mama where the big and little hands are on the clock, in order to tell time, I will explain.
When President Obama opened the door to the oval office, for the first time, we had already lost 800,000 American jobs. A president may very well be responsible for this job loss. However, one would best be looking in the direction of the president, who took us into war, for nonexistent weapons of mass destruction.
Notice further that, for more than half of President Obama’s first term in office, the job gain has been positive. In addition, the overall unemployment rate is one tenth of one percent lower than it was when the president took office.
