Valerie Jarrett: We should also give Obama credit for low unemployment
Washington Examiner ^ | 5/4/18 | Caitlin Yilek

{snip]The Bureau of Labor Statistics announced Friday that the U.S. economy added 164,000 jobs in April, pushing the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent, the lowest since 2000.

When asked on CNN’s “New Day” if Jarrett gives Trump credit for that, she deferred to giving Obama credit for starting the trend.

“Look, I think we have to look at it over a longer horizon than that,” she said. “If you think about what the economy was like when President Obama took office, we were losing 750,000 jobs a month. Under his watch, the unemployment rate dropped in half and it’s encouraging to see that we’re continuing to make progress.”

Just list the things that Obama did to help the economy in one column. And list the things that Obama did that hurt the economy in another. Then we’ll examine the list and give Obama credit for what he deserves.

ValJar pokes her head out of the tar pit. In a way, she could be right - Obama is no longer president, so his absence has indirectly helped improve the unemployment numbers.

“also”

I don’t see her using the word “also”. I think she intended to give Obama exclusive credit.
