I delivered the faculty graduation address last weekend at the University of California, Berkeleys Goldman School of Public Policy. Its one of the nations 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.

We’re getting a picture of what the USSR experienced since the late teens of the last century, in our country.
The poverty rate declined under President Lyndon B. Johnsons Great Society programs from 22.2 percent to 12.6 percent by 1970.Granholm should save the leftist propaganda for preaching to the choir.
Yeah True,Government Jobs,Thousands Of IRS agents and tax Collectors and Useless Bureaucrats that Produce exactly o
Sounds like she was pretty much at ground zero: the faculty graduation address at the University of California, Berkeleys Goldman School of Public Policy
Thanks bishop22. Jenny Grandstand.
Are you f’ing kidding me? One of my blogging friends called her the Matt Millen of Governors. It’s the most accurate thing I’ve ever here.
make that ever heard.
Isn’t she from Canada? Why won’t she go back?
Should read....Repulican congresses are the greatest job creators. Presidents have very limited control of the economy.
such bs....the only jobs that rats “create” are the slush fund jobs for their cronies and the public sector jobs that indebt all or our grandchildren and their children....
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?????
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 lets 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 Bloombergs 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.
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.
