Clinton pointed out that under Democratic presidents since 1961, the economy has added 42 million private-sector jobs, while under Republicans it has added just 24 million. He used the same concept to argue that President Obama has outscored both congressional Republicans and his GOP presidential opponent, Mitt Romney, in terms of creating jobs.

Clinton has some intriguing facts on his side. Aside from a rounding error, his historical numbers are accurate...

The numbers don't lie. Over the last 50 years, Republican presidents have been bad for job growth.

I thought jobs were a lagging indicator of the economy, and thus, any job creations under Democratic Presidents must be attributed to Republicans and vice versa..

Thats the argument you left wing kooks have been making for YEARS to justify Obamas failed stimulus, so which is it?

Reality doesn't matter to conservatives. This won't penetrate. I mean job growth isn't the be all and end all. One could still support the Republican party and acknowledge reality. One could say they are voting for the Republican party for other reasons not having to do with the economy.

Instead, what most conservatives will do, is read reality and either ignore it as a liberal conspiracy or tell themselves Presidents aren't responsible for job creation, which an ok position to take, but then your whole platform to get rid of President Obama can't be that he hasn't had enough private sector job creation. Those two directly contradictory thoughts can't exist in a rational mind.

Well lets be fair, the prosperity also had to do with Clinton CUTTING TAXES, and spending, which has me wondering why the hell it matters considering Obama is proposing neither..

Does this mean that the depression we are going through now is the result of policies put in place by the prior administration?
