Facts show Democrats are job creators (barf alert)
Politico ^ | 5/15/12 | Jennifer Granholm

Posted on 05/20/2012 3:20:42 PM PDT by bishop22

I delivered the faculty graduation address last weekend at the University of California, Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy. It’s one of the nation’s best and the reason is its emphasis on rigorous data analysis. Any public policy wonk worth her salt must be focused on data in order to replicate policy successes.

This claim is true. Well, all you have to do is redefine “job” to include “welfare recipient” and voila! Democrats are net job creators!

Anyone with the slightest business acumen knows doing business in America has become a liability..

ONLY dumb businessmen attempt it.. the others move to more friendly countrys.. and areas..

Doing business is about profit.. not feelings..
UNLESS, of course, you have a federal or state government contract.. which is a scam..
but its still about profit.. feelings are feigned..

Granholm?

The same Granholm that ran Michigan into the thriving state it is today?

The same Michigan with the highest unemployment in the country.

The same Michigan whose population declined since 2005 while the rest of the nation grew.

She's nuts. Unemployment was tough under Carter. Better under Reagan. A little tougher under Bush I. Clinton was the exception, unemployment was good under him. Unemployment was good under Bush W.

And unemployment is horrendous under Obama.

And she just makes it up out of whole cloth.

"Once in a generation, a politician gives us failure and misunderstanding so colossal that his or her bad example rises to the level of public service.

To this elite few belongs Jennifer Granholm.”

Let us examine just how much of an example Granholm set regarding how liberal government policies impact job creation. Under Granholm, the Michigan economy lost an incredible 630,000 jobs and Michigan’s Per Capita GDP fell from 24th to 41st. In fact, Michigan’s unemployment averaged 37% higher than the national rate throughout Granhom’s years in office. All of this happened while Granholm was imposing many of the liberal policies that she is now claiming are huge job creators."

When President Barack Obama took office, he inherited an economy that was losing an average of 750,000 jobs a month. As of April, private-sector jobs have now recovered to the number we had when he started. That’s 4.2 million jobs in the past 26 months.

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.” - Dr. Paul Joseph Goebbels, Propaganda Minister for Adolf Hitler

Let’s not fall for the way Granholm frames the issue. Let’s look at who has created job:
Henry Ford “invented” the mass production assembly line and created the most jobs of anyone for the next 70 years.

Bill Gates “invented” a way to market operating systems and software and has created the most jobs of anyone in the past 30 years. Bill Gates never invented the best operating system, nor the best application software. He invented a way for others to invent it. He created the most jobs, not just in the USA, but in the world. He turned 3rd world disaster cases into 1st world wonders in 25 years.

That Bill Gates is a liberal Democrat and the son of far leftist lawyer and activist is irrelevant. Bill Gates used capitalism..the invention of a marketing gimmick... to generate those jobs.,

What nonsense. After the Kennedy admin (and even before!) is when the rapid deindustrialization of the USA began.

Of course, the skewed opinion is blatantly obvious in lying statements such as this:
The poverty rate declined under President Lyndon B. Johnson’s Great Society programs from 22.2 percent to 12.6 percent by 1970. …
Granholm should save the leftist propaganda for preaching to the choir.

Should read....Repulican congresses are the greatest job creators. Presidents have very limited control of the economy.

When Democrats took both houses of congress in 2007, unemployment was at 4.6%, down from a high of 6.3% as we recovered from the Clinton recession and the attacks of September 11, 2001.

When Democrats got full control of the government and Obama was inaugurated in 2009, unemployment was at 7.8%, soon to exceed 10% after his “stimulus” to prevent unemployment from exceeding 8% was passed into law and signed by him.

Unemployment has remained in excess of 9% for most of his term, only recently dropping below 9% in some cooking the books accounting ignoring the U-6 unemployment figures that remain above 14%.

Also ignored is the Labor Work Force’s Participation Rate which continues to decline to all time lows, currently at 63.8%. It was 66.4% when Dems took both houses of congress and was at 65.7% when Obama took office.

Tell me again where Obama and the Democrats are the great job creators?????

Only problems is --- the only people who think government jobs are real jobs --- are the crooks who hold them.

Produce nothing of value. Produce nothing useful.

Produce nothing that increases wealth.

“For the near half-century following the Kennedy administration, Democrats created nearly twice as many private-sector jobs as Republicans.”

Q for Jenny: Was Affirmative Action a contributing factor?

Here is the key excerpt from the article:

“If Republican tax cuts create more jobs than Democratic investment, by all means let’s cut taxes! If Republican financial deregulation creates more jobs than Democratic consumer protection, then go ahead, deregulate away!

Which is exactly why the data from Bloomberg’s BGOV Barometer last week will shock many people. Bloomberg studied the past 50 years of U.S. job creation, under Democratic and Republican presidents. The facts: For the near half-century following the Kennedy administration, Democrats created nearly twice as many private-sector jobs as Republicans. Even though Democrats held the presidency for only 23 years compared with 28 years of Republican rule.”

As a Michigander I am well aware that this liar is so used to lying that she considers it a way of life. She says that Republican tax cuts and deregulation is in direct comparison to Democrat spending and regulation. Then she states that everyone with an R behind their name is a tax cutter and de-regulator while everyone with a D behind their name is a spender and regulator.

Yet, we have Kennedy’s tax cuts, Nixon’s regulation (EPA/WOsD/etc), Clinton’s tax cuts and de-regulation (through force from the Congress.)

Her constituency is full of fools, so I will not be surprised that they swallow this bilge hook line and sinker.

She misses several points.

The jobs created during the Clinton years were largely from the advent of ecommerce and Y2K. Both would have happened regardless of who was in the White House.

Unemployment was 4.4% under Bush and the GOP majority Congress in 2007, when the Dem majority Congress was sworn in.

When Clinton was sworn in in 1993, the Cold War was over, and the economy had already been growing for a year and nine months. When Bush was sworn in in 2001, the tech bubble had already burst, and Clinton's failure of leadership left the expensive WOT for Bush to budget for.

She then goes on to blame the GOP for the still high unemployment rate, for essentially refusing to spend money we don't have to create make work jobs, while failing to mention the unemployment rate would be a around 11% if the participation rate was as high as it was in 2007.

As I've been saying, if the left can't run on Obama's record, they'll run on the memory of Clinton's economy. We need to have answers ready.
