Do you ever get the feeling that Tea Party Republicans see the phrase “Ignorance Is Bliss” as a Mission Statement?


Just A Little Reminder For Those Who Want Bushed Again!

Today in the world of Internet the Repubs can post anything they want. Just like their favorite reality show "faux", they say it and people believe it. Recently I have seen repubs posting all over FB how Bush had the highest record for employment in 20 years when in reality he had the worst record for job growth. Under Bush those that made a profit were the banks, loan companies, oil companies, wall street, the wealthy from tax cuts and big corporations. This is where the Repubs funding comes from during the elections and they are not doing this for the "little peoples" benefit!

President Obama has done more in his 2 years then most Presidents had done in their full terms but it is hardly being noticed because of media lies, the vast lies on the Internet and advertisements from the Chamber Of Commerce. According to local news last night they spend 3 million dollars a week in ads to fight the Presidents "Agenda".

America should be ashamed of themselves. We have people starving, out of jobs, living on the streets and we have the Chamber Of Commerce spending millions a week to fight our President. The right is succeeding in destroying this Country just to make sure it LOOKS like President Obama is failing. This is disgusting and it is up to us to make sure the truth gets out there and that this behavior is recorded and remembered by future generations. ~Mem

Here's some facts.

Job growth under Bush was worst since WWII
Jacksonville Business Journal - by G. Scott Thomas
This was an article from January 20, 2009

President George W. Bush will leave office Tuesday with the worst employment-growth record of any president since World War II, according to a new analysis by Bizjournals.

The nation’s job base grew at an annual rate of 0.28 percent during Bush’s eight years as president – by far the slowest pace for any of the 11 presidents in the postwar era, according to Bizjournals. Bizjournals is the online media arm of American City Business Journals, The Business Review's parent company.

The previous low had been set by Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush, with an annual job-growth rate of 0.59 percent. The elder Bush served between 1989 and 1993.

Bizjournals used seasonally adjusted data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to calculate employment-growth rates for the administrations of all presidents since Harry Truman. Each president’s record was based on a comparison of job totals in the final full month served by his predecessor and his own final month. George W. Bush’s span ran from December 2000, when nonfarm employment totaled 132.5 million, to December 2008, when it reached 135.5 million.

The administration with the strongest growth rate since World War II was that of Lyndon Johnson, who served between November 1963 and January 1969. Employment increased at an annual pace of 3.74 percent during that period.

Bizjournals also looked at five subsets of job growth, with the younger President Bush finishing last in four of those categories – private-sector, manufacturing, retail-trade and government employment. The exception was construction employment, where Bush ranked ninth with an annual growth rate of 0.08 percent. The nation suffered losses of construction jobs under two presidents: Gerald Ford (down 3.75 percent per year between 1974 and 1977) and George H.W. Bush (down 3.22 percent per year).

Johnson was the top-rated president in three of the subsets – private-sector, manufacturing and government employment. Harry Truman, who was president from 1945 to 1953, led the other two – construction and retail-trade employment.

Annual employment-growth rates for all 11 postwar presidents are listed below:
Total employment
1. Lyndon Johnson (1963-69), 3.74%
2. Jimmy Carter (1977-81), 3.11%
3. Bill Clinton (1993-2001), 2.42%
4. Harry Truman (1945-53), 2.38%
5. Richard Nixon (1969-74), 2.30%
6. John Kennedy (1961-63), 2.28%
7. Ronald Reagan (1981-89), 2.04%
8. Gerald Ford (1974-77), 0.95%
9. Dwight Eisenhower (1953-61), 0.87%
10. George H.W. Bush (1989-93), 0.59%
11. George W. Bush (2001-09), 0.28%
