    That figure of 21 million plus was 10 million plus when Bush became president.
    It was 22 million plus when he left office.

    Bush more than doubles that figure by adding 12 million and here you are, complaining because that number is down only 1 million since Obama became president, even though he inherited the worst recession since FDR inherited the Great Depression.


    Obama added over 6 trillion dollars to the debt to get those numbers and has a labor force increase in four plus years of 1.1 million people. Apparently that is a liberal success story.

    To laugh would betray shallowness, and I don't think you're shallow. The ramifications of subtracting the Saddam regime from the Middle East are still being worked out. Much has changed since 2003, and some of it is good.

    I was responding to Jack, not you, he was implying Bush was better fiscally. The cost of the operation in Iraq is small in comparison with what it caused. Death, injuries, etc. etc. The final cost recently was estimated to be $2.2 trillion.

    Ok, 220 billion a year still puts the Obama deficit over a trillion dollars a year. Most of that debt is in the 10.6 trillion Obama inherited, you know the debt that is now over 16.6

    Do you seriously believe a full scale invasion was needed to remove Saddam Hussein?

    Do you really believe those with Bush Derangement Syndrome have any place in this thread about job creation under Obama?

    Yes. That's one of the few things of which I'm certain.

    There is lost FIT and payroll taxes due to the recession and there is re-occurring and growing Medicare Part D costs that was implemented by Bush. A there are still costs associated with Iraq.

    As I stated, every other President but Obama is responsible for the results generated during their term. With Obama it is always everyone else's fault. Bush obviously didn't have any expenses passed on to him by Clinton and so on. Of course Bush implemented ARRA, took over Chrysler, implemented an economic policy that hasn't grown the economy much the past four plus years, generated more people dropping out of the labor force, more govt. dependence. Yep, the number have today have nothing at all to do with Obama
