    Check out the chart link I posted below on nonfarm payroll growth/decline.

    Also the wikipedia entry on job creation under presidential terms.

    Now I will admit that it's a mixed bag, because obviously President Obama got hit with losses based upon the results of President Bush's crap, but do notice that during the actual years of his term, President Bush (cursed be his name) actually added 1.1 million jobs.  He was not losing 750000 jobs every month he was in office, only right at the end.

    Again, Obama got a bum deal, being saddled with losses resulting from Bush catastrophes, but Bush actually didn't lose tons of jobs for the first 6 or so years he was in office.

      lose my home to foreclosure until President Obama was in office for 3 months, however, it was in foreclosure for 2 full years while Bush was in office.

      Who do you suppose was the one with the shitty policies that caused the collapse? Bush, or do I blame Obama because he was president at the time?

      I get my news from comedy central and my comedy from Fox News.
