    For clarity's sake, "asked and answered," means you've already asked that and I've already answered. If you forgot my answer, feel free to engage the forum's search feature to find it.

    What numbers did you get? From when to when, before you are snarky.

    Yep, 7 years as opposed to 3 yrs for Obama, doesn't that show what a failure Obama really is?

    Sorry, but there was no answer and since there was no answer there is nothing to search for. I am becoming convinced that my 11 year old granddaughter is smarter than Obama supporters

    Actually, the numbers for Bush are 8 years, and they are accurate. I just typed in January 2008 when I should have typed in January 2009. But the number 133,561,000 is the January 2009 number. It is interesting, however, that you were so quickly critical of my numbers, mind telling me how in the heck did you arrived at yours?

    Looks to me like a large net job gain for Bush and a net job loss for Obama

    Snarky?

    Moi??

    Fletch posted 2001-2008 (instead of 2001-2009) and I didn't get snarky. I merely pointed out that he used the wrong dates.

    Which is a good thing too since I also messed up by posting a link to total non-farm when I meant to post a link to total private. Here's the new link, along with my apologies ...

    Jan/2009: 110985

    Carter 4 years 9,035,000
    Reagan 8 years 14,688,000

    I'd wager your 11 year old granddaughter can find where I already answered that question, even though you can't.
