Obama's Latest Whopper: He Created More Jobs Than Reagan!
Investor's Business Daily ^ | 08/23/2012 | IBD Staff

Posted on 08/24/2012 5:23:51 AM PDT by IBD editorial writer

Campaign '12: Where are those allegedly unbiased fact-checkers when you need them? Like this week and the fantastic fib that Obama's deputy campaign manager told about job growth under the current president.

Here's Stephanie Cutter's quote in full — uttered Wednesday on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" — just so no one can accuse us of taking anything out of context:

"Well, I think that worker probably has a good understanding of what's happened over the past four years in terms of the president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in, and seeing the president moving pretty quickly to stem the losses, to turn the economy around. And over the past, you know, 27 months we've created 4.5 million private-sector jobs. That's more jobs than in the Bush recovery (or) in the Reagan recovery."

The zero-bots know the media won’t fact-check them, so they can say anything they want.

Yes, Obama did see 800,000 jobs lost the day he was sworn in because business owners realized that the stupidest generation of voters in our history had just inaugurated a Marxist who was an enemy of capitalism.

So naturally, small business owners started retrenching immediately, handing pink slips to everyone but their spouses and children. They did the smart thing, and about half of them have survived in spite of Obama’s war on small business. You notice that he still is tight with Soros, Buffet, Immelt and other billionaires.

...president coming in and seeing 800,000 jobs lost on the day that the president was being sworn in...

..it was the sign of the times, corporate leaders knew who he was, and what he was planning to do, and tried their best to smile and hide their wallets.....investors stopped investing. His closest circle of co-conspirators tried to cash in...Jarrett, the slum lord, thought she was going to hit it big with real estate and the Olympics in Chicago FAILED!,.....GM FAILED,....the only thing they won on was stealing billions through "green" companies that sprung up over night, bound to FAIL,and getting billions of tax dollars behind them as they all went under....PURPOSELY, leaving all of us with the bill

Duh, is that why there has been a DECREASE of 282,000 total jobs since Obama moved into the White House?

Maybe not created, but 0bama saved MANY MORE jobs that Reagan. It's my understanding that 0' saved 160 MILLION Jobs!!

Want proof? Are you working today? If so, 0' saved your job! Our marxist/lenin-est/socialist/communist dictator *could* have nationalized your particular industry, regulated it to death, put you on food stamps, welfare, medicaid and unemployment. BUT, he didn't! He saved your job! 0' could have nobody working today, but by his grace, we have 160,000,000 working.. thus he saved our jobs!

Simple math shows that 4.5 million in 27 months isn’t much to shout about.

That is about 167,000 new jobs per month or 42,000 new jobs per week.

Unemployment ticked up again and is running above 370,000 per WEEK.

It would take 200,000 new jobs per month just to keep up with population growth.

I saw yesterday that Immelt announced that he will be voting for Romney...looks like the GE CEO is positioning himself for government contract work in a new Romney administration.

It may very well work when a nation has a dumbed down electorate thanks to our ed system and the state run propaganda 4th estate.

That would mean that 3.7 million MORE people would be working today. But math was never a strong suit of this president or the Democrats in general.
