Job Growth By President

So far the least job Growth recorded has been under GW. How many people does Halliburton employ? Apparently not enough to make a difference.

A recession is no laughing matter for those not at the very top of the economic ladder (IOW, who aren't part of Bush's "base.") Besides, Dragon -- if "we've turned the corner and aren't turning back," shouldn't there be more job growth? What was it last month -- 35,000? There were recessions in several of those other administrations, too... Actually, his job growth is the worst since the Great Depression ended during FDR's Administration...

Something called 9/11also happened

In reply to: (NT) Something called a 'recession' happened :)

It wasn't only lives that were lost in those two buildings and surrounding ones that had either collapsed or had massive damage done.....there were hundreds of businesses that shut down and most never recovered. Add to that the trickle effect of companies outside of the state that actually needed those businesses open and running, and THOSE businesses have now folded.

And you can look to NAFTA for the rest. That was effectively the worst possible piece of legislature I've ever seen written, and if ANY President has the smarts to reverse it, NOW is the time, if it's not already too damn late. Next to that piece of garbage, we have mollycoddled the illegal immigrants for far too long by not only giving them greencard jobs, but health benefits and other goodies that the majority of the legal citizens don't even have anymore.

Those are two major issues I don't hear either of the candidates talking about, and they really need to address resolving them.

I agree that you can't look at this economy in quite the same way as you would a poor economy in a pre-9/11 world. It was an extroadinary event that had nothing to do with politics or economic strategies. Don't forget the airline industry, which took a (completely understandable) major hit because of 9/11. United was the #2 airline in the country and is now struggling to avoid bankruptcy. The struggles of the airlines and the number of people avoiding air travel has probably had the single biggest impact on the economy of anything stemming from 9/11.

That things are still in bad shape three years later is what people should be discussing.

Unfortunately it makes a difference to some

who will vote accordingly, as if the economy can be fixed by any given president on scheduale -- when the truth is, no president is ultimately accountable.

Bush 41's economy, for example, had turned the corner but the voters didnt believe him. They didnt see evidence of it, so they voted against him. Fortunately for Clinton, the economy had turn around before he took office, and kept growing almost to the end of his second term. Fortunately for Bush 43, the recession began very early in his term, so voters will be much more likely to re-elect him. Its unfortunate, but thats the way it is...not that Im unhappy with Bush getting a second term, dont get me wrong.Happy
