Economy Doing Better Under Obama Than Previously Thoughton September 27, 2012 at 6:28 pm
And the bad news for the GOP continues to roll in. The Bureau of Labor Statistics regularly tweaks the numbers they’ve released. Every month they add or subtract X amount of jobs from the month before’s numbers as they’ve accumulated additional data. Today they released an annual correction based off of corporate records collected every year.
The result? The total number of jobs created between March 2011 and March 2012 is 386,000 higher than previously reported. This puts the country into the plus column for job creation since Obama took office. Meaning that we’ve regained and exceeded the number of jobs lost since January 2009. We’re still in the hole overall since we’re barely keeping up with population growth but it shows that it took the Obama administration less than 4 years to repair the immediate damage of the Bush economic disaster. And that was WITH the worst obstructionism seen since the Civil War. Imagine how much better off we would be if the GOP hadn’t plotted to make the country suffer for political gain from day one of Obama’s presidency?
Remember that when you go vote on November (or decide to sit it out in protest). The GOP literally did everything in its power to slow the recovery and Obama STILL dragged the economy back from the edge. But I’m sure a protest vote from angry liberals because of drones or the NDAA or whatever will fix everything.
BTW, expect the right to absolutely ignore this or pretend that the same numbers they were happily touting when they fit the right’s narrative are no longer “trustworthy” now that they benefit Obama.
