The Obama Recovery
If you exclude President Obama’s first year (2009 when the Bush Recession was still going strong and before the Obama Recovery had a chance to begin) then you find that there have been 4.3 million American jobs added since 2010 (2.5 years.)
That’s an average of 1.7 million jobs added per year since Obama’s first year.
The Bush Recession
Meanwhile if apply the same criteria to George W. Bush’s jobs record (excluding his first year) you get a gain of only 1.7 million jobs in 7 years.
That’s an average of just 0.2 million jobs added per year excluding Bush’s first year (and this is not even giving Bush the full blame he deserves for the terrible place he left the economy in when he left the White House in January of 2009.)
