4.3 Million Jobs Added Since Obama’s First Year

Mitt Romney recently said that Americans “ought to give, whichever president is going to be elected, at least six months or a year to get those policies in place.”

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.)
